CoolROM.com's game information and ROM download page for River Raid (Atari 5200). River Raid is a 1984 Activision game that is counted among the better shooters. After all these years it remains as a favorite and is among the first games mentioned when asked which titles are remembered most fondly. River Raid owes this remarkably popularity not to deep gameplay or stunning visuals - it has neither - but to being a simple, solid and lovable title that's easy to get into.

River raid atari game free download for pcWhile many of you are probably enjoying Project R3D's River Raid style game of ' Bridge Strike ', you might also interested to know that as of today Alpha One has released his River Raid clone of ' RiverRaid Reloaded ', which has been released for the Commodore Amiga. Now if you've not heard of this classic game before, that's because it was originally released in 1982 for the Atari 2600, and then ported over to many different systems such as the C64 and ZX Spectrum as a game viewed from a top-down perspective, flying a fighter jet over the River of No Return in a raid behind enemy lines.


According to the creator, RiverRaid Reloaded is a small clone that was meant to be released some weeks ago during the eab competition as a small 128kb file that should fit on everyones harddisk for testing. He also goes on to say it should run on all Amiga's including an Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200, with thanks going to 'nobody' for drawing tiles, 'w.o.t.w.' for the music and 'musashi9' for the titlelogo. If you want to play this game which has no relation to Bridge Strike as he didn't know that was being developed at the time, you can download it below :)

This is an obscure but excellent PC remake of Atari 2600 classic River Raid, a game that proves once and for all that female designers can design great action games as well as men. If you haven't been gaming long enough to know what an Atari 2600 is, here's the short scoop: the objective of River Raid is to score as many points as possible by blowing up tankers, boats, planes, jets, and helicopters. Don't go wild though, because if you destroy everything you won't be able to refuel at the large 'fuel' barges. You can accelerate or decelerate, which helps in the game since you get more fuel if you fly slowly over the barges. As you destroy different enemies, you will receive different amounts of points. 30 for tankers, 60 for helicopter, 80 for fuel depots (but why should you?), 100 for jets, and a big 500m for bridges, which typically mark the end of the stage. You get three planes to begin with, and you get another one if you reach a certain number of points (10,000 I believe).

This PC version recreates the River Raid experience very faithfully-- down to the primitive-looking plane and graphics. Both the interface and graphics are very smooth, and the game remains as addictive as fun as it was nearly two decades ago. The game is in Polish, but you don't really need to read anything ;) Highly recommended, especially for anyone who misses the good old days of gaming (and don't we all?), as well as anyone who is curious to know how one could fit an innovative shoot em-up with strategic elements inside the mere 4KB (yes, that's kilobytes) of memory in one 2600 cartridge.
