Pitfall! - Pitfall Harry's Jungle Adventure (1982) (Activision, David Crane) (AX-018, AX-018-04)2600
This is arguably the first platform game (definately the first on a console) your goal is to go from left to right on the screen, jumping over holes, lakes, and jungle creatures. the graphics are pretty good for it's time, especialy PF.harry's running animation. It's challenging, and the gameplay is solid, making it worth playing more than once. I recommend this to anyone with several hours to kill and a high-score lust.
