River Raid on Atari 2600 VCS

This is a short video clip of me playing River Raid on the Atari 2600 VCS retro video games console.

Programmed by Carol Shaw, widely regarded as the first female games programmer, an ex-Atari employee working for Activision.
The game is a "top down, up the screen shootemup", playing in a similar manner to the likes of Zaxxon in 2D. Fly over the fuel to refuel, shoot everything else, avoid the sides, etc.

The game was very popular at the time, though I personally have never much been a fan.

This and the other retro gaming clips on this site aren't intended as full game reviews, but are simply to give viewers who weren't around when these games were popular, an idea of what video games used to be like.
