An incredible game which seemed to make the VCS seem like a new console! The scrolling is so smooth, there is even inertia to the sideways movement as well as up/down when changing speed, and the guided firing is brilliant. It looks ans sounds great and the challenge is so well-crafted. An absolute classic and I'm quite hooked on it again, nearly in joystick-snapping mode like in the good old days!!
I really like that one, I play it regularly, but not so many time during a Session. It's technically incredible, although I find Laser Gates more impressive!
Try the River Raid Plus-Hack, it adds the Balloons from the 5200-Version as Enemies.
A really great game for the Atari 2600. I have time playing this that would be very long. You're in a plane shooting other planes, boats, & even bridges while grabbing fuel.
this is my favorite childhood game.cant get enough of it.awesome
too bad the second one is not as good as this one. This one is one of my favourites since childhood. Thanks Carol.
The most popular Game of all time! my best childhood memory!
there were over 200 different top_down scroller game b4 riverraid....but it is one of the best!
River Raid is my favorite all time 2600 game. It is the work of a pure genius and it literally invented the top-down scrolling shooter genre. Too bad Carol Shaw didn't apply her obvious skills to making more incredible games.
One of the greatest games ever. Thnx for a great site!
