  Pitfall – The Lost Expedition (GBA)
Words from the company:
Deep in the Peruvian Jungle, assume the role of Pitfall Harry, a fearless, rough-and-ready treasure seeker who battles evil using his athletic ability and a knapsack filled with adventure gear. Your mission: race against a rival explorer to find hidden treasures, which in the wrong hands could spell doom for you and your friends.

Featuring over 40 perilous levels, including lush rain forests, creature-ridden caves and vast glacial mountains, you are challenged to explore a dynamic obstacle-filled world. Adventure your way through a vast landscape, from forests to ancient ruins to subterranean mines. With fast-paced action pathways and a host of obstacles and challenges, you must face the consequences of your every decision.

Crossing treacherous jungle terrain and dark areas filled with puzzles, tricks and traps, you'll be swinging on vines, avoiding crocodiles and dodging rolling logs as you unearth artifacts and use your cunning to defeat dangerous foes.

The review:
Pitfall Harry has been around since my old Commodore 64 days when I used to play pitfall for hours. This great new episode is available on other media as well and review will be forthcoming on the other consoles but this one is for the Game Boy Advance system.

As with other GBA games you have to click through conversations and junk to get to the actual game but once in it you can have great fun.

This is another typical Pitfall adventure where you need to fight off scorpions and monkeys and savages and birds and fire and …. Ohhh I can just go on cant I? Controlling Harry is easy but the game is definitely challenging as I can attest to restarting a number of times in the various levels after I have been dubiously killed.

As with other games, you have a mission and need to find objects to use and restore your health and so forth. The game is addictive and lots of fun as well as frustrating at times until you figure out how to get through a level but then isn’t that what its all about.

This is definitely a great game a keeper so now back to the game
