    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.
