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.

How it should have been released

Reviewed By: macbee on 05 Sep 2016

It’s nice to see justice being done to Super Pitfall. It’s a very good game trashed by poor execution of the original team. Now that it’s fixed I’m sure that many people will give it a second chance.

Super Pitfall was the second NES cart I ever had (and I played it for countless hours when I was a kid) - so I’m familiar enough with this game to assure this hack is a work of affection and respect to the original (despite all flaws made by Micronics) and to the Pitfall franchise itself.
