Retroist River Raid Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist River Raid Podcast. On today’s show I talk about the Atari 2600 classic, River Raid. I begin the show by discussing how while I miss a lot of the stuff from the past, being connected and online has its advantages. Especially when it comes to high scores in video games.

Then I move onto the games itself. I discuss the company that published the game, Activision before going into the background of the designer of the game, Carol Shaw. Finally I dive into the gameplay, scoring, strategy, sequel, ports and more.
