Looks AWFUL

Yeah, the "retro HD" graphics successfully rape the player's eyes and the word "HD" in one swift move. The whole thing looks like an untextured model in Maya.

This doesn't even represent what Pitfall is. It just looks like a bad Temple Run rip-off. Ugh.

Finally, Retro HD.

Yeah I saw this the other day. I don't even really care about the HD claim, I'm just bummed out that they decided to make one of those running clones instead of a Pitfall style game - I mean how hard could that be?

Sad.

I'd go all out on this one and just call it Shitball.

Gotta milk your property somehow, I guess. You'd think it'd be easier to just make a touch controlled Pitfall! port. Maybe that already exists though. Can't be bothered to look.

Yeah, it looks like actual shit.

"all new retro HD" ... please tell me that was supposed to be a joke.

I don't really mind the graphics but the gameplay is just temple run with some added gimmicks 
 
Then again, maybe temple run is just Pitfall with gimmicks to begin with.

I love when the term "HD" is bandied about so carelessly. Not as bad as the "HD Bouncy Balls" I saw in a dollar store, but still pretty bad.

I'll stick with templerun.

I'll do ya guys one better.

I don't think it's a let's play so you'll be fine.

Apparently "retro" means Nintendo 64 and "HD" means Temple Run clone.

I wanted to add Temple Run Brave to Similar Games as another example of something that should never have happened, but we don't have a page for that yet. Get on it, wiki monkeys.

Only if you can turn around at the beginning of the game and run toward the camera.

@SethPhotopoulos: DUUUUDE, fuck, I'd just completely forgotten about Pepsiman. Like in general! What a cool game that was. Thanks for the reminder!
