Top Critic Average
I loved my time with Pitfall Planet, but felt that the experience was a tad short as I neared the 100% completion mark after only 6 hours. The difficulty of levels climbed slowly but steadily over that time period and I felt a few more hours with the ever increasingly complex levels would have been nice. However, that shouldn't detract from what is presented in the package as it is a tightly designed cooperative puzzler that can compete with the best in the genre.
Pitfall Planet is fun for sure. But the shorter length, higher cost on Nintendo Switch, and no option for solo players must be factored in. All things considered, I recommend adding this to your wish list for a future sale.
Unfortunately, with its wonky controls and uninspired execution, the game just can't quite hold the attention of two people long enough before one inevitably decides its time to throw their friend into lava.
