ATARI 2600 - $150 ACTIVISION RIVER RAID BOUNTIES

Spurred by TG forum discussions about the difficulty of achieving a million points on River Raid for the Atari 2600, the following bounties are offered to spur competition on this title and to answer these questions as well as to recognize the skill in accomplishing these feats.

There are two $75 bounties - One Million Points, and a Time Challenge. Both bounties can be claimed by the same player for a maximum claim of $150.

More information about the bounties can be found in the General Forum:

    Since you kindly created this thread, I'll share my findings here.


    I found this YT video of a complete River Raid run that does not appear to be a TAS:

    I had earlier pledged $50 towards the bounty....how do I contribute now, once the "bounty" is ready to be paid out ? Thanks.

    HO-LY CRAP!

    After posting this bounty, I was pretty convinced it would take several weeks to fall, so I decided to take a "Christmas break" from TG. I was just surfing Twitter, and decided to see if word of the bounty filtered out of TG, so I keyword searched "River Raid," and a Retro with Marco episode popped up with Garrett's run - I nearly fell out of my bed!! Congrats my man. I'm heading over to the adjudication thread now. :)

    PS: I PMed you RTM

    Some of these "experts" really need to check themselves...I just have to chuckle at some of the things they think are impossible.
