quasi in rem

If you loved me, you would buy me this...: "Pitfall' was one of the great games of the early computer age.

Released on the Atari 2600 in 1982, the crudely rendered, two-dimensional adventure let players control a figure named Pitfall Harry. The object was to swing along vines, avoid being eaten by pixillated crocodiles, vault over rolling logs, and climb stubby ladders to explore caves that looked more like sewer pipe conduits.
Activision has now released the latest game in the franchise -- 'Pitfall: The Lost Expedition' for Xbox (news - web sites), GameCube and PlayStation 2 (news - web sites). What a difference 22 years makes"

As someone who actually completed the first Pitfall game way back in 83, and took the picture, and sent in the picture and got a wicked cool Atari jacket for my trouble, i will be completing this game forthwith.

By the way, anything that says Atari on it is very popular in Kenya.

Atari means danger in Swahili.
