  • Back in 1982 there was a game called Pitfall, back when smartphones didn’t exist and probably most of the developers behind Temple Run were not born yet. Now Pitfall is back from its original creator, Activision and it’s packing a solid punch. This is a free runner like Temple Run, but it’s the OG runner…


    We’re dealing with a remake, 30 years after the original and looking spectacular. You have to escape an angry volcano and there are no monkeys chasing this time. There’s the occasional snake in your path, hissing and threatening, but you can tap the screen to whip the critter. You can collect various treasures and the main character here is called Pitfall Harry, for those of you wondering. We also liked the varied viewing angles of the title, constantly changing, unlike the fixed camera in Temple Run.


    You will swipe and tilt to control the character, jump over obstacles, slide under them and take turns to the left or right. You can level up and get powerups, plus customize your wardrobe with various attire. In app purchasing is included, but you’ll get enough currency just by playing the game. This is a very fun and fast paced and also graphically challenging adventure, better than Temple Run 2 in my book. We give it a 9.5 out of 10 and you can get it from here.
