Have you ever played Pitfall for the Atari 2600?|What's the object of that game, exactly? You're dropped in the middle of a jungle, but why are you there? What is it you're looking for? Are you trying to escape the jungle? And I can go either left or right... which way do I need to go?
Yay Google! I found an answer!
For those unfamiliar with this classic gaming experience (shame on you!) we’ll go through the high points for you while you’re searching eBay for your copy. The game consists of an Indiana Jones type figure named Pitfall Harry as your main character. Your job is simple. Guide Harry through the steaming jungle to find 32 pieces of treasure. In order to do that, you must traverse 255 “boards” and avoid obstacles such as tar pits, scorpions, snakes, quicksand, fire, crocodiles and rolling logs.
