River Raid

River Raid

Manoeuvre your way down the meandering river valley, avoiding the cliffs on either side and destroying the enemy ships, balloons, helicopters and tanks as you go. Keep an eye on your fuel gauge and collect more fuel by passing over the FUEL dumps. These are the only items in the game that you are permitted to come in contact with. You can score points by destroying enemy craft and fuel dumps, and extra points are awarded if a bridge is destroyed whilst a tank is crossing it. Chocks away and good luck!
