Hello, and good afternoon from the offices of WikiAnswers Wednesday.
I received an interesting question in my inbox from my colleague Crystal; upon reading it, I felt the gears in my brain start revolving (dusty, yes, but well-oiled) and then it hit me… Let’s see if the same happens to you. Here’s the question:
Wait for it… Wait for it…
You got it: Pitfall!, one of the most awesome (and best-selling) games ever made for Atari, making it to WikiAnswers! People are playing this and asking about it, in 2008! I couldn’t contain my excitement and had to answer this one.
Then I realized I haven’t actually played the game since the late ’80s and my memory is cloudy concerning the very primitive graphics and simplistic story line. Trees in 2-D? Some dude named Harry with a square head? And how does land stand on brick platforms? And how are the scorpions as big as the crocodiles?
Yeah, that’s all I got. More questions than answers at this point. Although I did discover this with a little researching: Pitfall: The Lost Expedition. Released in 2004 by Activision, at least it takes care of my graphics-related questions.
