The original on the Atari VCS might look basic but this was a brilliant game back when it came out (think very very early 80's)

This was the Genesis/SNES type game, again platforming action...

Wii/Gamecube version...

So its traditionally been a platformer/Indiana Jones type of game, was hoping for something similar on iOS but as 'temple run' is the current hot style of game they've gone for this. (Another example could be Dungeon Hunter, two great RPG's then they turn it into an arena game)

Must say it looks very pretty, the tutorial in the video Sanuku posted looks pretty slick with the camera at the side, just a shame they don't vary camera angles more often like that, would've at least made the game a bit more unique.

Noticing all items list both currencies, how does this work? Is this a case of needing either the crystals gathered from running or the diamonds from leveling/iap, or do you actually need both of them to make purchases?

Was hoping for the real thing... not this stupid endless runner type game.

I was pretty sure I saw screenshots in the past that was showing the old Pitfall from Atari etc

Yeah its a shame, they hold the Pitfall franchise and they go for the 'endless runner' route. Bit lazy really.
