But I do love it. 🙂 First Strip First Series | First Strip Second Series | First Strip Current Series| Archive | Most Recent 02/08/21 – Come With Us 02/10/21 – Where Now 20 Comments 0z79 February 9, 2021 at 12:32 am 8 months ago I actually have Pitfall on original, Atari 2600 hardware. I even bought a new-in-box Hyperkin Ranger to play it. It’s a combination gamepad/paddle controller for the 2600 and 7800. I think it also works for Sonic the Hedgehog on Genesis, though there’s naturally no pause button. Gregg Eshelman February 13, 2021 at 2:06 am 8 months ago A few years ago, someone ported Pitfall to the one major home computer that it was never ported to in the 80’s. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/150008-ti-994a-pitfall/ Efogoto February 9, 2021 at 1:52 am 8 months ago The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft a-snap.

Jude February 9, 2021 at 3:20 am 8 months ago Aren’t huge shafts with with handy swing cables obligatory on *all* spacecraft? lil sis February 9, 2021 at 7:01 am 8 months ago along with air vents large enough for heroes to crawl through Coyoty February 10, 2021 at 2:59 am 8 months ago And control columns with no handrails. alinfamous February 9, 2021 at 9:44 am 8 months ago See! Things are working, things like the artificial gravity. Winnie February 9, 2021 at 10:01 am 8 months ago Do you ever crack up while drawing, Christopher? The symbiont’s arrow-pointing gesture in panel 1 is a riot! Christopher John Baldwin February 9, 2021 at 11:22 am 8 months ago @Winnie, ha! Yes, I do. And it is one of the most marvelous feelings when I do. 🙂 Knicholas February 9, 2021 at 10:09 am 8 months ago I always thought Luke and Leia were really lucky, managing to swing across that shaft on the Death Star. I mean, a tiny cable like that can’t be easy to hang on to. And I was always confused as to how they managed the swing off of Jabba’s sail barge. Mr. Scott February 12, 2021 at 10:05 am 8 months ago Isn’t it great to have the scriptwriters on your side? When they aren’t doing things like killing your family to create a backstory. Erhannis February 9, 2021 at 10:50 am 8 months ago Ok, she’s been seen prisoner, now; she has an alibi TB February 9, 2021 at 2:22 pm 8 months ago Great punchline, but we’ve already seen him fly out of exactly this situation. Pete Rogan February 9, 2021 at 3:53 pm 8 months ago I suppose it was inevitable that one day the rope over the chasm would break in mid-swing. It wouldn’t happen to the Mandalorian but it happens here to Tesfay. I suppose the only way to top THIS joke is to have an X-wing fighter come zooming up the chasm and take the characters with them. But I’m pretty sure it’s already been done by Robot Chicken or the like. Sigh. Muzhik February 9, 2021 at 8:21 pm 8 months ago C’mon! Enough with the cables and shafts! We need more smashing plates, like in “GalaxyQuest”! Meran February 10, 2021 at 4:11 am 8 months ago Lol I noticed the name Tesfaya is used on the tv show The Expanse. Chris, are you a fan? Christopher John Baldwin February 10, 2021 at 11:43 am 8 months ago @Meran, nice to see the name used elsewhere, but no, never seen it. But I’ve heard good things. 🙂 Meran February 11, 2021 at 7:09 am 8 months ago It’s EXCELLENT. Books as well. Looks like its beginning to deviate from the books a bit. Next season will be the last. And there’s 1 more book, then ~that will be done too. I think you would be fascinated by the Protomolecule… and what is built because of it.
