    Wow!! Never even heard of this one before! Definitely looks like a methed-out version of River Raid LOL. Would be interesting to learn some of the history on this one, is it a former disgruntled Activision employee or just good old fashioned Capitalism at it's finest? Wonder if Activison took any legal action against this one back in the day also?
    Either way, that was some great shooting and an awesome run Garrett!!
    Accepted!

    Just seems like whoever backwards engineered this could have spent a short session on the thinking throne and came up with something to make it a little more different from River Raid than it is, if I remember right it doesn't play terribly.

    Great Run

    Accepted!!!
    So they say

    In this time, when this game was produced - there was not that much focus on copyright or certain gameplay - if you could program a game that could work game play vice and you did not violate any major copyrighted names from movies etc. you where good to go.

    Great run and accepted!

    Just got a few concerns on this one...

    First the Track doesn’t state any Region i.e. PAL/NTSC

    second one I see the rom played is PAL which is fine however I believe there is an NTSC version as well, so we probably need to the track to state one or the other.

    As an unwritten rule was to always use the NTSC rom if available

    anyway this is just my 2cents

    Apologies, ive got This part wrong, I’ll blame the lack of sleep for this oversight. It’s an EMU track.

    Still concerned over the ROM used though

    That's a fair concern, and something I thought about before submitting. Contrary to what the AtariAge listing for Bermuda suggests, I don't believe an NTSC ROM exists for this title other than in bootleg multiple-games-in-one carts, and even then, I have found the mfgs of those carts simply integrated a PAL ROM with a bunch of NTSC titles and called it "NTSC".

    I could be wrong, but Ive looked everywhere for its existence and have come up short.

    Apparently, searching out a true NTSC version has been an ongoing exercise

    This person claims that this title and a few others are PAL only.

    I just want to say I really appreciate you looking into this!
    I have raised this on a few other subs over the years but it seems to have ignored.
    To put this in perspective my home region is PAL, ( I only really moved to NTSC to “hang” with the big boys ) living in Australia, as I spent more time here at TG I did notice a lot of PAL Only titles classed as NTSC and I was probably a bit protective of those games. So I was really curious to know how someone could sub NTSC on PAL. Apparently a lot of ROMS were converted so there are some games that are now dual regions.
    Anyway hopefully explains why I asked the question.

    Im voting to Accept and my respect for you has risen 10 fold!!
