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.

Super Pitfall: The Good Edition

Reviewed By: Andromeda on 12 Sep 2016

First off, I have to commend the time and effort it took to essentially rebuild Super Pitfall from the ground up. Comparing the hack to the original game, it is almost unrecognizable in every way, save for the enemies and gameplay. This isn’t a bad thing by any means; in truth, the new content is greatly welcomed in an extremely bland game. Playing this hack, I cherished all the updates offered, but there is still a glaring problem nonetheless: Super Pitfall itself.

You see, there are many problems from Super Pitfall that the 30th Anniversary hack cannot cover up, be it the inability to do so, or choosing not to fix them. Pitfall Harry still can’t shoot his gun while crouching (the mod seems to have removed crouching as a whole) which is a major problem, as a small chunk of enemies are too short to shoot at the standing position. No matter if the music from Pitfall II, or the “hidden objects” are already in clear day, Super Pitfall’s repetition is still visible in the mod.

All-in-all, this is a prime example of what modding a game can do, for better or worse. In this case, Super Pitfall: 30th Anniversary does the best job it can to address and fix the problems plaguing the original. It is a mod that can be best enjoyed when comparing it to the unmodified original.
