Pitfall: the Mayan Adventure is a side-scrolling action platformer. It's the forth game in the Pitfall series. It was developed by Activision in partnership with Redline games and published by Activision in 1994. It was released for the Sega CD, Sega Genesis and SNES. One year later for Windows and Jaguar.
You play as Pitfall Harry jr, the son of the character from the original Pitfall! game. Through 13 levels, you must use your bungee jump and boomerang your way through jungles, waterfalls, and mines to find safety.
The animation on this game is exceptionally clean. There's not much that differs from the original game, but it is extremely well polished. The sound is great too. It's worth to mention that the Windows version of Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure was one of the first games to be released as a native Windows 95 executable, making use of the DirectX libraries. Luckily it still works now!
But if you have problems with the Windows version, you can now play also the Genesis one.
