1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Well, it is something decidedly old school ( 28 years old already! ) but - IMHO with accelerometer controls, it is even more playable than the original :)

    yes, but in an interview, River Raid's creator - Carol Shaw - ( probably the first woman in the business, BTW ) says that it was supposed to be a boat in the original too, and only ended up a plane because with such small resolution ( Atari IIRC had 112x172 ) they couldn't draw a good-looking boat. If you think about it, actually a boat makes much more sense there :)

    read the interview here: RIVER RAID

    Besides, in my clone I have special levels ( 'lakes' ) where submarines chase you around and shoot torpedoes. Now a submarine torpedoing a plane, that would be too far stretched...

    Yeah, I always though it was a bit odd that my plane was flying low enough to crash into boats and bridges, lol.

    Its a pretty good clone. The only issue i'm having is in "free roaming" mode. The accellerometer controls are a bit sensitive. I end up going in a cirrcle a lot more then I intend. hard keyboard controld might be a nice option on an onscreen control.
