The original Pitfall was seriously tough, incredibly basic platform game for the Atari VCS. It has plenty of fans - mainly American - hence this latest update.
The PC outing is flashy, slick, and has a difficulty level aimed at the younger market. It's a bit like Crash Bandicoot in some places and Banjo-Kazooie in others, as Harry explores a mysterious lost jungle in search of hidden treasure. The hand-control system takes a little getting used to though.
