Holy frijoles that site is awesome. Thanks for the tip!
I had to look this up: the Atari 2600, released in 1977 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_2600 - great game system! Pitfall released in 1982 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitfall! over 4 million copies sold!
PS I was never that good at Pitfall ... I did play some Asteroids.
TS: I'm also a fan of Donkey Kong and Popeye. I just found the site yesterday. I've been there all day. I have that little going on...Jim: Asteroids was cool, but I liked the home version better. I sucked at pitfall too, but I like playing it.
I never was good at these kinds of games.
I loved this game.... But I don't remember ever beating it? Was it possible to beat Pitfall? Did it go on forever?
hmmm not sure where i was!<><
I never got to the end of it either. I always ran out of time.Noe: Yeah, where WERE you????
Hey! I just blogged about Atari the other day! I loved Pit Fall!
So did you ever beat it??
... or were you as bad as Jim and Asblackasobama???? I heard they really stunk at the game..
there was a Popeye?! i grew up with these games but, alas, the dementia is settling in. flickr set of atari game manuals (popeye shown): http://www.flickr.com/photos/joekral/sets/72157594432670289/

My mother took a picture of me in front of the TV screen, with Pitfall in the background, I must have had some good score, and we were going to send it in to . . . I have no idea. This was on the Intellivision format, we didn't have an Atari. I still have the photo, with me in a ruffled early 80's blouse, lol.
