Trapfall intro and game screens

Trapfall is a clone of the Atari 2600 (and later, arcade) hit, Pitfall. This ended up being a series of games for most platforms, and the Coco itself ended up with two of the official sequels, Pitfall II, and Super Pitfall. The original game itself is similiar in concept to the Indiana Jones movies, in that you are an explorer looking for treasures in a jungle. There are numerous obstacles to get around, and underground passages. You can run, jump, climb, and swing on vines. One part of Pitfall/Trapfall that was fairly unique at the time is that it is basically non-violent; you can't shoot or hit in the game at all (you can get eaten by alligators, though). There were 255 screens in the original Atari 2600 version; I am not sure if this version has the same amount.
