Noahskatefall.gifSkatefall is John Freeborn's tribute to one of the earliest platformers, the Atari 2600's Pitfall! With a bodacious new skateboard, online scoreboard, bonus items and powerups, 2D platforming has a new name: Skatefall Harry.

Tap the [right] or [left] arrow to move in either direction, and keep pressing the button to gain and keep up your speed. Press the [spacebar] to jump.

As a homage, Skatefall is extremely effective and faithful; the graphics and sound are perfect and the difficulty, while formidable, is appropriate. To be honest, I haven't been able to make it to very many of its 255 levels yet, so I can't say if vines and alligators make an appearance, but here's hoping they do.

Play Skatefall

Cheers to Drew and Andrew for suggesting this one! =)

This is such a simple game, with 3 button controls, but is way too much fun :)

This is like a bastard child of Pitfall and Skate Rock, two of my beloved games from good old C64.

Skate Rock was a particularly great game. Tight controls, jump ramps, time limits, great level design.. man I loved that game. In fact, I think I'm gonna scrounge a bit and try to find it, this game really made me wanna try Skate Rocking again after all these years.
