Pitfall Harry[edit]

Super Pitfall Harry.png

Harry is known throughout the world as Pitfall Harry, famous explorer and treasure hunter. He was the first to successfully claim the 21 lost treasures of an ancient civilization and make it out alive. Now not only must he locate and collect the legendary Raj Diamond, but he must also rescue his niece Rhonda and loyal but cowardly lion Quickclaw. Harry still has his notable jumping ability, but in this new adventure, Harry has also decided to equip himself with a handgun, just in case. Harry can swim through water, and survive a fall from any height, but he cannot touch any of the creatures that roam the caverns, or fall on a bed of spikes, or he will lose one life.

Rhonda is Pitfall Harry's neice, and his willing sidekick whenever she can come along for the journey. Unfortunately, she has a high penchant for getting captured, and this time is no different. She is held captive in the inner sanctum of the cavern. Reaching her will be no easy task.


Super Pitfall Quickclaw.png

Quickclaw is not nearly as courageous as you would assume most lions are. In fact, he's down right cowardly. If there's ever any signs of trouble, Quickclaw flees in the opposite direction as fast as he can. Unfortunately for him, this makes him susceptible to be sepereted from the group and ultimately captured. Then it's up to Pitfall Harry to perform yet another rescue to keep his furry friend safe.
