Product description
Product Information
River Raid has you controlling a B-1 StratoWing Assault Jet in a treacherous flight over the "River of No Return" to eliminate enemy ships, helicopters, and jets. At the end of each river segment, you will encounter a bridge that must also be destroyed to continue your flight. Your aircraft is armed with unlimited rapid-fire missiles, and you can alter your speed by pushing the joystick forward or back. Precision flying is required to navigate around islands and across narrow channels. Another of River Raid's distinguishing features is the vessel's limited fuel. A gauge at the bottom of the screen sounds an alert whenever you are nearly depleted. Fortunately for you, fuel depots are scattered along the river for refueling. Fill up your jet by slowly passing over a depot before continuing your relentless assault.

Excelsior River Raid, Excelsior!

I can still recall the hours I spent with my cousins playing River Raid on the Atari 2600 back in the 80's. In my opinion, it was revolutionary for it's day and provided the player a challenge and a tease. It never got old or frustrating to the point that you didn’t want to consistently beat your high score. It's amazing that a game that came on the market about 25 years ago still has this much playability. If you've never played River Raid in your youth, or if you're new to Atari, I suggest you consider adding this gem to you collection. You won't be disappointed. In fact, you’ll probably be shocked that 2 hours flew by while playing an 8 bit gaming system. Excelsior River Raid!

One of the best.

River Raid is always rated as one of the best games for the 2600 and for a good reason - the game is fun, challenging, and doesn't lose it's playability with time. You have to run up the river in your plane, blowing up stuff without running out of gas. Sounds simple, but there's a lot of strategy involved here. If you like 'space shooter' type games then River Raid is probably something you'd really enjoy. As one of the more popular cartridges for the 2600, it can usually be had for a fair price.

One of the best for the Atari 2600

As always Activion pretty much delivers. Probably one of the best games for the 2600. Graphics are decent, game play is pretty addictive, and it's very easy to learn to play. Can't think of much I'd change about the game.

Great retro game worth every penny!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

One of the best Atari 2600 games out there I believe! This product was still sealed in the box for the ultimate collector's item too! If you like retro games and have not played this one, pick it up today!
