(Best Syndication News) - Remember the 1980’s? Back in 1982, Activision had captivated video game players with Pitfall! on the Atari 2600 game console. This video game had Pitfall Harry swing across crocodiles, jump over logs, and avoid falling into pits in the jungle. Today, Activision announced that they have released a new version of the classic video game with their Pitfall! App that will work on the Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

The video game was developed to work with the new technology at Activision's new Leeds, UK-based studio The Blast Furnace™. With the new technology, the Pitfall! game will be revamped for today’s gamers, but will keep elements of the classic game, such as the crocodiles, rope swings, gold bars, cobras, and diamond rings. The new version of Pitfall! will have 3D visuals with the ability to shift camera perspectives. There also will be vehicles and mine carts with a variety of challenges that the player will face.

Activision plans on having the game change over time with more content being added later.

The Pitfall! App is available for purchase on the Apple iTunes App Store. The developers are working on Android-device support that will be released later.
