App description: "Hey Pitfall! fans. Thanks for all your support keeping Pitfall Harry ahead of that volcano!  Youve helped him run over 1 BILLION MILES!  We've made some gameplay improvements and fixed some bugs to make things even better. And for you runners with new devices, the game now runs in glorious HD retina resolution, so Harry looks better than ever.

Take control of Pitfall Harry once again in PITFALL!, inspired by the 1982 Classic that started it all, now re-envisioned and re-booted on iOS!

Pitfall! proudly stands among the best action adventure games on the App Store, a thoroughly enjoyable runner with just enough variety to make it a must play. - GAMETRAILERS

Cool graphics, controls, and a fun reboot of the classic that started the side scrolling runner genre. - WIRED

Pitfall! is a thoroughly entertaining runner with enough personality to make it one of the best games on the App Store. - MODOJO

The overall adventure is far more exciting and bombastic than Temple Run, with the incessant brassy action film score making every run feel like the climax of a Spielberg film. THE VERGE

Escape the wrath of an angry volcano while collecting ancient treasures in PITFALL!, an adrenaline-fueled, free-running adventure set in a deadly jungle with twists and turns that will always keep you on your toes. Challenge your reflexes by jumping, sliding, and using your deadly whip to take out classic PITFALL! foes like rattlesnakes and scorpions while avoiding the death grip of a crocodiles jaw as you swing across ravines. Make sure to always keep a watchful eye as danger lurks around every corner!

Anyways, im a little disappointed that even with the retina update, it still doesnt say anything about an iphone5-specific enhancement. Can anyone with an i5 check?

I dont have an i5 yet, but im leaning towards getting one soon, and i want my favorite casual games to be well-compatible with the i5, Pitfall included.
Curious to know, i just re-dl the game and it plays beautifully with i5 support. Imho, still one of the best runner in the wide app store.

But they have the stupid pause button still in the left down corner. Guess nobody at activision ever played the game by themselves, pity.

Edit: oops didn't check the option for left/right hander.
Can't remember having this option earlier. Nevermind.

You know, after initially liking this, despising it and deleting it, I just re-downloaded it to my iPad a few hours ago. It's funny because I remember hating the IAP model and everything. That said, ever since this came out, the whole runner genre evolved, becoming more like "this" model (including the new Temple Run games). They're all equally gross...which just made me realize how good this is. Yes, it's still a gross free-to-play model, but the game is infinitely better than anything out there. Hell, I think it even surpasses Temple Run now. TR has gotten beyond stale, IMO, but at least Oz stays fresh with new areas and whatnot. I'd say this and TR: Oz are the best behind-the-back runners out there.

Yup... No doubt about that. Well, a little. I hope Oz gets more updates too. TR2 is updated consistently, and Oz isnt.

Ohohoho! Looks like i5 users can rejoice.

Thanks!
