Review

See the logo advertising Pitfall Jump on Google Play, and you will think you're about to enter the world of Disney's Tarzan. You'd be wrong. This game has nothing to do with Tarzan, let alone Disney.

Instead what you get is a retro arcade game featuring a jungle man. The aim is to climb as high as you can up against two parallel walls (what two man made walls are doing in the jungle, I don't know). While doing this, you need to avoid obstacles such as other jungle men and animals by jumping from one wall to another.

As you jump, you collect floating fruit, and when you collect three types of fruit in certain combinations, you will get a power up such as extra speed, better jumps, smaller fruit, etc. What I was disappointed about here is that the fruit is not worth anything. Other than creating combinations for power ups (that aren't that useful), you don't score points for collecting the fruit, so there seems little point in doing so.

There is no points system in the game, and your score is based on how high you climb. You get a record of high scores, but whenever I click on the leaderboard symbol, the page never comes up.

There are three modes of play available in Pitfall Jump, but there is so little difference between them that there seems little point in having them. The first mode is called Retro, and described as gaming with old school graphics. That is true enough, but every mode uses the same graphics. The second is Arcade mode, which is exactly the same as Retro, only you have the aim of completing ten levels. The final mode, called Insane is the same game only at a much faster speed and several more obstacles; it is like starting level ten from the beginning.

Pitfall Jump is an initial bit of fun, but gets boring quickly; I also don't like the deceptive Disney logo, and the fact that the name makes you associate it with the Pitfall! series, because they are not related.
