Author's comments and explanations:
Super Pitfall improved by 5:32 -- who expected that? ;)

There are 5 items that Harry MUST collect during his adventure: 1. The Raj Diamond 2. The key to Quickclaw the Lion's cage 3. Quickclaw the Lion 4. The flask of medicine for Rhonda 5. Rhonda. The game ends when Harry has collected all 5 items and returns to the start.

Harry dies twice during the run. The first death's purpose is to reach a normally inaccessable platform -- something that saves a lot of time. The second death's purpose is to save about one second of time.

I don't want to spoil what makes this so much faster than the last version. You'll have to watch it in order to find out. Hopefully you've already seen the 11:52 version so that you can understand this movie better.
