Super Pitfall 30th Anniversary Edition

Hack of Super Pitfall

Description:

Super Pitfall 30th Anniversary Edition. Release 1.0 - 05 Sept 2016. A hack by Nesrocks. New soundtrack by FCandChill. Pitfall II arrangements by rockman_x_2002.

This hack was created in celebration to 30 years of Super Pitfall. It vastly improves the original game while keeping the base game and level layout intact. The idea was to modernize, fix and beautify the original game because the author felt like the game’s problems kept it from getting justice.

This hack changes the game’s code, graphics and sounds in several ways. Some of them include:

  • Completely new graphics
  • Completely new Soundtrack
  • New menu screens
  • Improved game design (no more hidden items, warps are now doors, new in-game HUD, improved game controls, small level design adjustments, etc!)
  • Improved performance
  • Seamless, fully automatic save feature (please hold reset while shutting down when playing on a repro cartridge to avoid save file corruption).
  • Available languages: english and portuguese (choose one of the patches in the zip)
  • Many more small improvements!

Please read the readme for full credits and special thanks.

User Review Information

Almost unrecognizable as the same game (in a good way!)

Reviewed By: Midna on 05 Sep 2016

This hack does an admirable job of taking a clunky, vague, generally unpleasant NES game and making it a decent, even fun, game. Steps were taken to remove or alleviate most of the game’s annoying features (unclear objectives, messy and unfair level design, bad music, bad graphics, limited bullets), and the end result is leaps and bounds better - definitely what the game as released should have been. It’s still an NES game, so it’s still pretty hard and easy to get lost in. Making Super Pitfall a better game doesn’t mean removing the challenge, after all. But the better physics and level design give the impression that when you die, it’s your fault and not the game’s.

Definitely worth a look!
