    I think Pitfall can make a great mobile game.

    While I do really appreciative it that Activision finally stood down from it`s Horse and start to act on the Mobil Battlefield with an own Studio their new Entrance seem to be kinda Lame.

    Instead of bringing one of it`s recent Multi Million Dollar Franchise to the Mobil World with a big Bang all we get is Pitfall?

    Don`t get me wrong - Pitfall is cool and great and I had a great Time with it over the last few Decades but...

    ACTIVISION BLIZZARD opens up a hole new Studio in Great Britain and all we get is a Port of an 30 Years old Game?

    This is kinda Lame.

    Taking a look at the other Activision Games on the Appstore I ask myself how ACTIVISION BLIZZARD expect to survive against EA Mobil & Gameloft when all we get are either bad 3DS Ports of their Call of Duty Franchise or some Ports of some stale Games that have been ported to everything I can imagine - Even Toilette's in Tokyo.

    What we really need now is an entire collection of their classic hits on one app like the Atari one!

    I must admit i would prefer Pitfall than Call of Duty (got lots of similar COD games out on iOS already)

    Pitfall is a classic so i hope they dont mess it up ! No weird tilt/swipe controls, have good old fashioned on screen buttons !

    Loved this on the Atari VCS and over the years seeing the various versions. Really hope they do a decent version of this (And surely it would be great as an easter egg or option to have the original Atari version as well)

    YES! Pitfall was my #1 favorite game from the Atari days, so looking forward to this.

    I do hope they try to stick a little closer to the original Pitfall with this, rather than those later SNES games. They were cool, but I ended up using the code to play the original game on my SNES more than I actually played the Super Pitfall game (or whatever it was called). I never even got the sequel to the SNES Pitfall game.

    Bring on the original game with new graphics/sound, I say! But I'm probably in the minority on that, since in modern day, a game like that would be seen as way boring (just not for me!).

    This was one of my favorite Atari games. I hope the controls are good as I forsee navigating the three alligator heads as a frustrating task. The timing of the 3 jumps will be crucial!

    If they made a modern game that looked like the box art of the Activision games, I would be a very happy little nerd.

    Bit Trip Runner already went there and is the one to beat.

    I'm surprised they haven't re(re-re-re)done Activision Anthology for iOS. That's a lot of fun on the Vita (transfer the PSP version), and the PS2 version is nice as well. The absolute best IMHO is the GameBoy Advance version, which has a mess of homebrew games not seen anywhere else (except limited-run cartridges sold on AtariAge).

    Bit.Trip.Runner also came to mind when I first heard of a Pitfall remake for smartphones. I think that a rhythmic runner with a jungle theme and classic Pitfall obstacles would be very cool - and of course I am a big fan of Bit.Trip.Runner.

    If I had any skill, I would create a multi-stage endless runner with Jungle King (or Jungle Hunt if I cared about getting sued by the Tarzan estate) stages and graphics.

    Come to think of it, that would be Tomena Sanner in the jungle.
