Pitfall II - Lost Caverns
Atari 2600 - A2600

Trap Two: Lost of the Cave is a platform game originally released for the Atari 2600 video game console in 1984. This is the sequel to the popular Trap!. Both games were developed and written by David Crane and published by Activision. The star of the game is Harry's trap, the 8-bit jungle explorer. The plot of the game was subsequently slightly altered into a super trap.

The original Trap! and Harry, exploring the jungle, collecting treasure and avoiding danger in the form of crocodiles, scorpions, cobras, and quicksand. Although the background does not scroll until Harry reaches the edge of the screen, the game was one of the first major platform games for the home video game console. Lost Caves remains true to the gameplay of the original, but greatly expands the scope of the environment as Harry descends deeper into the catacombs. In addition to the scrolling style of the first, this game adds an element of vertical scrolling as well when Harry falls off a cliff or flies after being captured in a hot air balloon.

While faithful in many ways to its predecessor, Lost Caves featured numerous changes to make it play differently from the original game. Harry's trap has an unlimited life time, making it impossible to "lose" the game when Harry touches a dangerous creature, he simply loses points as he swims back to the last furthest point (marked with a red cross) he touched.

Unlike the original Trap!, which has ground level and underground, Trap II has 27 horizontal levels that are basically the same height, each stacked one on top of the other. Although these levels span all eight screens in length, they are not open to everyone, as some areas are blocked off by cave walls, which force Harry to travel to other destinations in order to progress. Quicksand and tar pits are replaced by rivers and chasms, neither of which is fatal to fall into (although falling on hard surfaces can result in loss of points). The balloons allow Harry to ascend to new places. There are no snakes or crocodiles of the original in the game, but scorpions are still present. New hazard animals include bats that fly around on some screens from left to right; condors that start flying from right to left, then back and fly from left to right, the remainder of the visit to the screen; Electric eels that swim in rivers; and the frogs that jump over some holes that have ladders are often higher where the bat is present.
