Pitfall II with analog controls.  What could go wrong?


Seriously, this is one of the hardest versions of Pitfall II I've ever played.  Everything just feels off.  It looks decent, sounds good (with a mockingboard), but plays off.  I'm so used to the timing and controls of the 8-bit version that this one was a chore to play.

Found this bit of trivia on Mbygames:



In his Game Developer Research Institute interview, Rex Bradford, the developer who ported Pitfall II to the Apple II platform from the Atari 2600, mentions that they ignored the source code they were provided with and re-wrote the game from scratch after studying the game play of the original.
