I seem to lose lives in batches as well. That 53k game I posted. I was cruising along until about 44k, then I quickly lost 3 lives. Went on another run before crashing 2 times quickly to end the game. Easy to get flustered in this game I guess.

Personal Best for 2600!

74,530 (A)

I think I found out something!,

Weaving to the left and right a lot, and not worring about the green shoreline helps.
If you come close to hitting a helicopter or boat, just fly angled "generously" like you are swirving around 'em in traffic. I normally would try to out run them or slow down, didn't work for me.

Slow and steady and keeping the plane "swirving often", won me a personal best...

Creeping along. When I die at a certain spot I usually take the other split route because the setup of helicopters is easier. Also, sometime I just zoom past aircraft that is positioned near the end of the level. Those seemed to be killers and trouble spots.

Fuel gets scarce, the further you get down river, so grab every drop you can! :)

Yep, 1 million to roll. You get exclamation points if you roll it. You also must take a picture of the screen and mail it to Activision.

:) Been there. Done that. Got the newsletter (Activisions Vol. 7) :)

I haven't played any serious River Raid since the time I got those exclamation points 30 years ago. So, I'm having a blast playing this for the HSC tourney. Probably don't have the stamina for another rollover, but having the game matter to me, again, even for a week, is undeniable fun. :thumbsup:
