This weeks choice is a tricky one.... Hard to get started but once you get the hang of it.... it is a decent game.

BUT.... why take a GREAT game in River Raid and make it complex and less fun? I am talking to you Activision!

I post my first score and I was thinking there is something strange then I realized that the meters are different in my Image than the one posted by you, so I proceed to download the rom from the link that you provided and is the same rom that I have with indicators in yellow and red ( the posted by you are yellow and blue )

I took the pic from the AtariAge website. That is not a pic from my ROM.

Refueling over the river section is hard...

 

River Raid II (A): 20,250.

 

I see what they tried to do in this game. It kind of works. I have this cart for some time now and never bothered to sink my teeth into it. Now at least I know how it's played. I'm not good at it, but that's just me :-). Thanks again, High Score Club!

I remember my cousin had a game he called River Raid 2 but it was another game. It was probably a pirate game with the label River Raid 2.

Actually, I liked that game. I remember the river/ocean/sky? changed collour often.

 

I found the page on Atarimania.com with the River Raid 2: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-2600-vcs-river-raid-ii_14547.html

I don't know the name of the original cartridge. This was the River Raid 2 I knew from the 80s.

59200 points. for many years I avoid playing this game because it doesn't feel like River Raid ( River Raid is my favorite game in Atari 2600, sorry Dig Dug :( ) but now with different approach, It is not a bad game, I am starting enjoying, more after the torture it suppose to be play Space Jockey.

River Raid II

29,550

Played on: STELLA - PAL Rom. Microsoft Gamepad.

 

Never played this. I like it to be honest. I like the extra bit of complexity. Playing it on a Gamepad sucks balls. In fact, playing on anything other than the real hardware is a bit stinky imo ;) . I hope my cx40 usb adapter arrives before the end of Week 7. I think I need a Harmony! :)

I found timing your shots so the enemy aircraft "fly into" your bullets, rather than you crossing in front of them and firing (hunting them), really helped my rhythm .
