Summary

Picture this!  You are deep in the recesses of a forbidden jungle--an unforgiving place few explorers ever survive.  But you've got courage, because you're with Pitfall Harry, the world famous jungle explorer and fortune hunter extraordinaire.  The lure of hidden treasure draws you and Harry deeper and
deeper into the bush.  But, being a great explorer, you wouldn't think of starting such a difficult journey without reading this manual first--very carefully.

The object of Pitfall! is to guide Harry through a maze of jungle scenes, jumping over or avoiding many deadly dangers, and helping Harry grab the most treasures in the shortest possible time.
