ROM Hacks: Super Pitfall 30th Anniversary Edition
« on: September 05, 2016, 08:30:02 pm »

Update By: nesrocks

Pitfall and Pitfall II are reknowned classics for the Atari 2600, but like any family, there's always that weird cousin. The Pitfall family has that cousin, and its name is Super Pitfall. Without the involvment of the original creator David Crane, Micronics gave birth to this game on the NES and included a slew of bugs and design flaws.

The game turned 30 years old as of recently. In celebration for its birthday, nesrocks decided to give the game a major facelift. New graphics, music, a save feature, and more! Definitely a hack worth checking out. It's even David Crane approved!

So glad to see it featured here!

Man, was I surprised with Crane's e-mail. He's super cool.

Congratulations on the release, Nesrocks & FCandChill!
I'm off for some time. If for some weird, strange, and important reason, you need to talk to me, just send me a PM and probably I'll read it whenever I come back.

I just beat the game and saw the ending but I missed the last item in the last slot. Can anyone tell me what it is since the game keeps my progress saved and I can find it to get a perfect ending? I did well without any help and this game was fun as hell!

Ziko: the last item symbolizes that you have found all of the treasure in the game. There are 90 gold chests and 10 rings in total. Really glad you liked the game!

Played a few minutes of the original before trying this hack, and sweet jesus it's like night and day.

Epic job!

Congratulations Nesrocks & FCandChill! You absolutely rock! 

EDIT: "Fully automatic save feature!" Holy ****!!  :thumbsup:
