I tried the right channel instead of the left on bridge 40... BAD IDEA, the blue plane stalled,
and knocked into me. Otherwise I might have just passed zylons score, would 90ks be
another free life?

I lost 3 lifes on "fuel running out"... my new enemy.

89,280

I don't know if I have another game in me.

My box of 5200 games came in mail, all games work but 1.. RIVER RAID! ugh,
stuck on emulator... *sigh*, The only Atari games that go bad for me are Activision... those contact pins are too skinny and sensative.

Anyway, this port of River Raid just gets more fun the more I play it!

68,700

...on my second attempt, pretty good!

Try wedging a pack of matches behind the cart after you put it in. It helps sometimes. :)

No skips requested and none granted this round. Anyone who uses one will have an * next to their name showing that they have used theirs.


It's WORKING! Here's a screenshot... (although I don't think I need to play again)

Thanks for the help, there's a q-tip wedged behind it. lol!

I may have bought a stay of execution...what a difference a controller makes! I should have followed zylons lead earlier and used a good ol' stock controller, instead of my trusty Comp-pro..there is no comparison ;)

a-ha...

Here's my stock controller score, just under that 50ks.. but I'm not used to the slide, which I don't think is even there on emulation.

I hit the river bank 3 times on that bridge 26. However... I think it's easier to deal with the boats and planes... they are bigger and easier to hit with the console version.

Thanks for helping me get it working zylon and peedenmark7. :thumbsup:

I hear you, the 5200 version of Frogger is more difficult than it had to be. :(

I would be delighted if Frogger were picked! I really enjoy playing Frogger on the 5200 :)
but that's just me… I seem to like what is generally hated by most… (and vise versa)
