Nearly all achievements must be earned on the default hard difficulty. Exceptions: "Learn How to Play" and the 3 Easter eggs which can be earned on easy (setting 3).

Pretty amazing game considering the hardware limitations and HSW was given only six weeks from design to delivery. If it wasnt for the annoyances of falling in the pits when you didnt want to, this would be among the greats of the 2600 games.

Tips for dealing with pits: you fall when any part of your sprite overlaps with them. If you fall, press the button (without holding directions) while in the air to begin floating so that you don't lose too many points. You don't need to hold the button to float, you're free to move up or safely descend to get a phone piece. When you reach the top, start pressing left or right to avoid falling back down, and find a safe place to land.
