River Raid for Atari 2600

Game Review (written by Torrax) Added on: 2 Mar 2012
River Raid was one of the best action arcade games of the '80s. I remember when we first gathered around the Atari 2600. We rented the game at the local Video Store, and played it all the weekend. The game was actually quite simple. Fly an airplane in a river; You can't fly over anything - you'll crash. If you can shoot it away, do so. If not, avoid it or you will die!
Out of fuel? Better fly over some fuel - or again, you'll die.
We rented this game so often, my mom decided to buy it in the end. River Raid was by far the most played game in the house, and it was action from beginning, to the end. Warships, kamikaze-pilots - it had all an action war-game needed, at least when we were 12-15 years old.
Well, we grew tired of it, and today I actually miss the old game. It was great!

Game Review (written by Theblackyak) Added on: 5 Jun 2011
While River Raid didnít make the big splash of the coin operated conversions, such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong or Space Invaders, it was still a great hit on the Atari 2600. Like so many of the early Atari games, River Raid was both developed and published by Activision. The release date for this gem was 1982, the heart of the 2600ís run.

While River Raid was ported to other consoles, such as the ColecoVision, C64, the Intellivision, and the 2600ís successor, the 5200, it was probably the most popular right here on the Atari 2600.

The game itself is a vertical scrolling shooting game that plays from the top down point of view. The gamer will pilot a little craft that is going to fly up a river and blow up bridges under the pretense that this destruction will hamper enemy movement. There is all sorts of enemy interaction, and the bad guys have more types of crafts than one can imagine. Take flak from balloons, choppers, other aircraft, and of course, different ships and watercraft navigating the river. The banks and bridges can also cause mayhem if you strike them. Running into those obstacles will cause you to lose a life.

Lucky for you that your plane has unlimited ammo that has the power to destroy both bridges and enemy crafts.
