Pitfall II - Lost Caverns (Atari 2600 - a2600)

Traps second: Lost cave is a platformer, originally released for the console Atari 2600 video game in 1984. This sequel to the popular trap !. Both games were developed or written by David Crane and published by Activision. Star game is a trap Harry, 8-bit jungle explorer. The plot of the game has since been slightly altered in the Super Trap.

Original Trap! Harry, exploring the jungle, collecting treasure and avoiding danger in the form of crocodiles, scorpions, cobras, and quicksand. Although the background does not scroll up, Harry comes to the edge of the screen, the game was one of the first major games platform for the home video game console. Lost cave remains true gameplay of the original, but greatly expands the scope of the environment, Harry descends deep into the catacombs. In addition to the style of the first scroll, this game adds an element of vertical scrolling, and when Harry falls off a cliff and fly after the capture of a hot air balloon.

While true in many respects to its predecessor, lost cave revealed numerous changes to make it play differently than in the original game. Traps Harry has an unlimited lifetime, making it impossible to "lose" the game when Harry touches dangerous creature, he simply loses points as it floats back to the last on the point (marked with a red cross) he touched.

Unlike the original Traps !, which has a ground level or underground, II Trap 27 has horizontal layers, which are basically of the same height, each of which are folded one on top of another. Although these levels cover all eight screens in length, they are not in the public domain for all, as some sites are blocked cave walls that force Harry to travel to other areas in order to progress. Quicksand pits and resin are replaced by the rivers and precipices, or anything deadly, fall into (although fall onto a hard surface can result in a loss of points). Balloons allow Harry to climb to new places. In the game there are no snakes or crocodiles original, but scorpions are still present. New animal hazards include bats, which fly on some screens from left to right; condors, which are starting to fly from right to left, then back and fly from left to right, the rest of the visit of the screen; Electric eels, which swim in the rivers; a frog, who jump through some holes that are ladders often above, wherein the bat is present.
