Ratings and Reviews
It takes me back to the 80s
When games were crappy and we were fine with it be amuse that was all we knew. This is crappy and we know that things could be soooooo much better. If I start with the game play which is somewhat nostalgic. Until we get a quick dose of over sensitivity in the accelerometers. I know the game is suppose to be simple enough that instructions aren't necessary. But if you're going to label something instructions, PLEASE INSTRUCT. Last but certainly not least is the insufferable screen freeze. As if the clunk and waaaay too temperamental game play was sufficient, lets add the wild card screen freeze for good measure.
Well that's what you get for $.99 and a 30 yr old remake. Not so fast. What about pitfall? Hmmmm, good graphics, steady game play, and a throw back to the good ole days of old, without the crappy elements. That said, the singular advantage River Raid has over pitfall is the ability to start at you last check point without an arm and a leg. That is just highway robbery. The game is free but if you want to start where you ended, please submit you favorite form of payment. Don't put that card away, you'll need it in 30 minutes unless yo spent this weeks lunch money on the diamond and coins.
Screwed over or ripped off. Hmmmm....decisions....decisions
Only for BIG fans of the 2600
This was a bad game for the 2600 and an even worse app for the iPhone. I do not know why anyone would want to remake this title…
This is a primitive shooter that inspired many great games to come on the arcade and NES, but unfortunately it does not stand the test of time. The biggest difference between this plane shooter is that the player has to worry about gas and stop by “fuel stations”. This is definitely not very fun – shooting enemy planes is fun, which is probably why later shooters do not include worrying about gas.
The best thing about the app is the title screen music. But that is pretty much it. The title screen menu looks blurry and very unprofessional, and there are game breaking issues. Sometimes when the game is closed and reopened, the buttons do not work and the application must be closed. Often, the music will completely cut out.
The worst thing about this game are the controls. When starting the first level, the player will lose if the iPhone is not completely flat. The hit detection is confusing and I often crash into boats, planes, or walls, which is very frustrating.
I would only recommend this app to those who remember playing it as a kid…
As easy and simple as it gets!
This app takes advantage of the iPhone's capabilities, which makes the controls very simple to maneuver. With just two buttons and the accelerometer, this game is one of the easier, yet still fun flying game out there. If you love airplane games, then you should go ahead and purchase this game. The only thing that would have given this app 5 stars is the graphics. They did not put enough effort on the graphics, but maybe that's what they were going for. It is still a good app from all aspects.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
