DESCRIPTION

[CONSOLE] Atari 2600 Cart.

River Raid II © 1988 Activision.


Alone in your F-14 assault jet, you're about to understake the most explosive mission of your celebrated flying career.

After taking off from a sea-based carrier, you'll tear through the skies above the ocean and streak toward a river delta, where you must destroy an enemy bridge. Once past the delta, you must navigate back to the carrier and safely land. Without stopping for handshakes all around, you'll then set off on a new, more dangerous mission.

This is no contest for amateurs. Once airborne, you'll have to refuel in midair while outmaneuvering enemy fire. If you manage to outfuel these fearless devils by blasting them with missiles or torpedoes, you'll also win points.

If you don't make it, two backup planes will come to your rescue. Your missions will continue until your squadron's name is history.

TIPS AND TRICKS

* Try to enter the river channel with a full tank of fuel. Fuel is tough to come by at the river scene.

* Maintain a low altitude when flying over the river. It's easier to swoop down and pick up fuel buoys.

* Keep a close eye on your RADAR to locate your mission target.
