Activision first made the platform video game Pitfall II: Lost Caverns available for the Atari 2600 in 1984. It is Pitfall’s follow-up (1982). Pitfall Harry, a well-known jungle explorer, and David Crane created and programmed both games. A considerably wider environment with vertical scrolling, swimmable rivers with lethal eels, music, and balloons for floating between areas are the main new features in Pittfall 2.
Pitt fall II was one of the last significant releases for the 2600 and one of its most technically stunning games. It was released following the Pitfall 2 Lost Caverns crash of 1983 when interest in the system was fading. Crane created a special “Display Processor Chip” for the cartridge that allows for better visuals and four-channel audio instead of the system’s usual two channels.
The Atari 5200, ColecoVision, TRS-80 Color Computer, Apple II, Atari 8-bit family, MSX, Commodore 64, and IBM PCjr all received ports of Pitfall II (as a cartridge). Pitfall II was remade for the arcade by Sega in 1985 with a new visual aesthetic and gameplay that combined features from both Pitfalls I and II. In Japan, the SG-1000 console received a port of it. Super Pitfall for the Famicom/NES was partially based on the plot of the original Pitfall 2 Lost Caverns.
