Admittedly, I've never spent a great deal of time with Pitfall!, so I don't really have a solid view of the game. However, you do a good job of making the game sound like it has depth, and making me consider giving Pitfall! another go. Good review!

DISCLAIMER: Pitfall Harry denies having any involvement with Super Pitfall on the NES. It was an imposter.

Baha. I've never played Super Pitfall, but I've seen the AVGN on it. It looks awful enough that kinda want to play it and tear it to bits.

Funny thing is that yesterday, I was messing around with my 360 and for the hell of it, downloaded the arcade ap (whatever it's called) and downloaded (not bought) a good chunk of the games, so I could dick around with the demos. Pitfall! is one of the games you can get. I don't know how well it'd work with the 360 controller, as I messed with the Atari 2600's primitive Video Pinball (which I remember liking when I was in elementary school) and couldn't seem to get any real force using the flippers.

Good retro review.

Here's a strange suggestion:

Most screens have some combination of hazards for you to contend with. Perhaps you'll have to swing across water on a vine while making sure you don't land on a barrel.

I think that following "with" with a colon would make that sequence stronger. As it is, the "Most screens..." sentence is a pretty nothing statement. It's the most minor of nitpicking--feel free to ignore.

I like that advice. Therefore, I took it.
