A Charming, LO-FI, basic platformer, Pitfall 2: The Lost Caverns had good intentions and a heart of pure gold. But when SEGA took the name and turned it into an arcade game in 1984, it was awful. So excited were they with the powerful chips and plentiful memory of their space-age arcade machine that they needlessly turned Harry into some camp, cartoon version of Indiana Jones, replete with a pink fedora and matching leather jacket.
He didn't even have a proper jumping animation, instead he stood rigid, arms and legs pointing downwards as he sailed through the air. This is sort of like how you'd imagine robots would jump, not caring about the stance they were in moments ago, or the stance they'll be in moments later, blit simply living in the present and assuming their default pose. Never play this game, instead stick to the original Pitfall.
