River Raid has you controlling a B-1 StratoWing Assault Jet in a treacherous flight over the "River of No Return" to eliminate enemy ships, helicopters, and jets. At the end of each river segment, you will encounter a bridge that must also be destroyed to continue your flight. Your aircraft is armed with unlimited rapid-fire missiles, and you can alter your speed by pushing the joystick forward or back. Precision flying is required to navigate around islands and across narrow channels. Another of River Raid's distinguishing features is the vessel's limited fuel. A gauge at the side of the screen sounds an alert whenever you are nearly depleted. Fortunately for you, fuel depots are scattered along the river for refueling. Fill up your jet by slowly passing over a depot before continuing your relentless assault. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
