On this movie poster for Video Games The Movie, a documentary about the history of video games, I am able to recognize most of the iconic characters shown. Yet, there is that one character with a hat looking like an explorer that I am not able to recognize. Who is this character?

    Looks like Pitfall Harry. – milk Dec 13 '17 at 20:23

    @milk I was thinking that, but I don't see any images of Pitfall Harry wearing a hat. – Timmy Jim Dec 13 '17 at 20:24

    The hat seems to be a safari hat. Indiana Jones hardly wears these (not sure if he ever did). – dly Dec 14 '17 at 9:06

    I tried reverse image search through multiple engines. I'm not getting anything! I think someone in marketing drew it or something... – Nelson Dec 14 '17 at 18:11

    @Dpeif Are those holsters or a backpack? Pitfall Harry wears those colors and a backpack in The Lost Expedition, but no hat. In the Lost Caverns box art it looks like he wears a safari hat (but I'm no hat expert), but no backpack and also has a red ascot. Depending on the Lost Caverns box art, the colors are different, but at least one of them has a green shirt. I couldn't find any image of him wearing them all together like in this poster. – milk Dec 14 '17 at 20:17

That's Pitfall Harry from the Pitfall! games.

This one with the green shirt, hat, and no jacket is specifically from the mobile endless runner version.

He has gone through a lot of different versions... enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here
