Beyond the Jungle is the fifth game in the Pitfall! series, and (as implied by the title) the first one in 3D. It was released on Play Station and Game Boy Color.

While investigating a cave in Mexico, Pitfall Harry jr. (voiced by Bruce Campbell) finds a crystal which opens a rift into another dimension. In the rift, a woman named Mira appears and tells him that she's a member of ancient civilization of Moku, and her world has been taken over by evil woman known as Scourge. Harry jr. agrees to help her cause and takes a step into the rift.

Pitfall 3D has the examples of:

 "Lights out."

  • Bottomless Pits
  • Character Title
  • Continuity Nod: Harry jr.'s "run in with the Mayans" is mentioned in the manual, referencing the previous game The Mayan Adventure.
  • Convection, Schmonvection: Heat's not a problem for Harry jr.
    • In the volcano stages, he loses health if he walks on red lava, but dies instantly if he touches yellow lava.
  • Creative Closing Credits: They take the form of the original Atari game, with Harry jr. interacting with the oncoming credits.
  • Darker and Edgier: Instead of treasure hunting and avoiding crocodiles like in the previous games, you are now stopping systematic genocide and saving the Earth from an extra-dimensional invasion.
  • Death by Childbirth: Harry jr.'s mother died giving birth to him while she and her husband were in an out-of-control minecart ride.
  • Domed Hometown: Scourge has placed a force dome over the city of Shenrak to prevent Moku returning home.
  • Edge Gravity: Harry Jr. won't willingly walk off a cliff...once. If the player tries again, though, he'll happily fall off the edge (sometimes this takes several tries, though). Unfortunately, Harry won't 'bump back' from the edge if he's walking on a container or box.
  • Elemental Embodiment: Earth Soldiers and Fire Djinns.
  • Embedded Precursor: The original Atari 2600 game is available via a password.
  • Every Ten Thousand Points: You'll be awarded with points at the end of every level, which in turn provide you with one-ups.
  • Evil Overlord: Scourge.
  • Floating Platforms
  • Flying Face: Imps.
  • Get Back Here Boss: Scourge tries to evade you as the final fight progresses.
  • Hellhole Prison: The pit, where the Moku are held prisoners in floating cells above a lake of boiling acid and await their turn of having their life essence taken away.
  • Lethal Lava Land: The volcano.
  • Life Meter
  • Maniac Monkeys: Papwa Ipos, which are constantly flinging their "magic projectiles" (as the manual puts it, they're clearly throwing shit) at Harry jr.
  • Metronomic Man-Mashing: The scorpions do this to you if they catch.
  • Power Crystal: Your job in the penultimate level is to destroy the crystals that give power to Scourge's invasion on Earth.
  • Powerful Pick
  • Pre-Ass-Kicking One-Liner: Harry jr.'s comments to some of the rock type enemies:

 "I've got a rock to pick with you."

"There's a place for my pick in your heart."
