Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is a platforming video game originally released for the Atari 2600 video game console in 1984.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.7.0
  • Aims for Fastest Time
  • Collects All Items


Only thing different from my any% TAS (http://tasvideos.org/4330S.html), is the balloon glitch and route change to obtain all items.

Balloon Glitch: Swaps the bat for the balloon instantly when entering the balloon area, saving around 4 seconds each time I use the glitch.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Replaced submission file with a 798 frames longer one which does collect the Rat.

Mothrayas: This run appears to drag on a bit compared to the any% Pitfall 2 run, but is nevertheless quite well received. Accepting for Moons.
