Als Activision 1982 David Cranes Pitfall! für den Atari 2600 veröffentlichte, veränderten und prägten sie eine ganze Generation von Videospielen. Nach diversen Auftritten auf NES, SNES, Game Boy, PC und PSone wird nun Pitfall Harry, 21 Jahre nach seinem ersten Abenteuer, wieder die Lianen schwingen.
Im Herbst 2003 wird Pitfall Harry für GameCube, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation 2 und Xbox erscheinen. Mit der Pressemitteilung veröffentlichte Activision auch einen ersten Screenshots von Pitfall Harry, welches von Edge of Reality entwickelt wird. Wer etwas in alten Erinnerungen schwelgen möchte, sollte der Pitfall Homepage einen Besuch abstatten, welche Activision letztes Jahr anlässlich des 20. Geburtstags ins Netz gestellt hat, um eine Runde Pitfall! online zu spielen.

London, UK - January 29, 2003 - Activision, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI) legendary Pitfall® franchise is swinging onto the next-gen consoles as the daring explorer Pitfall Harry packs his wits, athleticism and quick reflexes and embarks on an all-new adventure deep in the South American jungle.

Developed by Edge of Reality, Pitfall® Harry will be available Autumn 2003 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, XboxTM video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCubeTM and Game Boy® Advance, and is not yet rated by ELSPA.

"Pitfall Harry will let players take on the role of the daring explorer who laughs in the face of danger as he rescues those in distress from deadly foes and searches for lost treasures," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision worldwide studios. "This all new adventure delivers highly detailed graphics, fast paced action pathways and a host of interactive goals. Classic vine swinging and pit hopping action combined with Harry's quirky sense of humour will make Pitfall Harry one of the most sought after titles of the year."

Gamers assume the role of Harry, a fearless, rough-and-ready treasure seeker who battles evil using his athletic ability and a knapsack filled with adventure gear. Harry must race against a rival explorer to find hidden treasures, which in the wrong hands could spell doom for him and his friends.

The vast landscape, ranging from forests to ancient ruins to subterranean mines, provides players with countless game options as they face the consequences of their decisions. Crossing treacherous jungle terrain and dark areas filled with puzzles, tricks and traps, players swing on vines, avoid crocodiles and dodge rolling logs as they unearth artefacts and use their cunning to defeat dangerous foes.
