Released in February 1985 in Japan.

Reprogrammed and released by Sega in 1985, this arcade game is based on two games (Pitfall! and Pitfall! 2) originally created and designed by David Crane for Activision on the Atari 2600. David Crane was one of the most highly awarded video game designers in the world. David Crane was also one of the founders of Activision in 1979 (the first ever software house which developed games for third party hardware).

An official Pitfall! game-board based on the video game was released in 1983 by MB (Milton Bradley), licensed from Activision.

The 'Pitfall' series also spawned a cartoon series : Ruby-Spears Productions. Produced By Joe Ruby, Ken Spears. Originally aired September 17, 1983 as part of 'Saturday Supercade' on CBS.
