Pitfall Harry's

Lost Video Game Cavern

<BGSOUND SRC="pitfall2_intro.wav" LOOP="FALSE">

Hello. Pitfall Harry here. I'm glad you could join me on this, my latest adventure. Just how long has it been? Ahhh, yes! Now I remember. It was way, way back in 1984. You were one of the bold adventurers with whom I had the honor of exploring the mysterious Lost Caverns of Machu Pichu. As I recall, it was your cunning and deft hand which guided me safely through countless perils. Together we skirted poisonous frogs, vampire bats and the dreaded Peruvian condor in our successful quest for gold and other lost treasures. You were the best. My hat is off to you!

It really has been a long time. Atari itself, that once mighty videogame empire, has crumbled into ruin since last we met. It's as astonishing as it is sad. Did you fear that, like Atari, I too may have finally met my match? Hardly. The truth is: Atari did not, will not and cannot die. Ever. And neither shall Pitfall Harry. The classics will live on! As long as there are people like you who yearn to explore the rich heritage of classic videogames; as long as there are those who understand that megahertz and graphic fluff are hollow substitutes for innovation and gameplay; as long as there are people like you to keep the spirit of classic videogaming adventure burning bright, Pitfall Harry shall never perish!

I have kept myself busy all these years exploring the most mysterious abyss of all, cyberspace. My journeys have led me here to this tiny, but cozy little cavern. Come on in and explore! I am honored to have you accompany me once again. If you should stumble upon my guestbook, please take a moment to sign in.
