Fair Play: Players should play fairly, be honest, and have fun! Falsified scores will result in your immediate removal from the site. It goes without saying that no use of cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, enhancements, Photoshop, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage is allowed. Everybody hates a cheater.

Welcome to our 43rd Squad Challenge! River Raid is Carol Shaw's Activision masterpiece. One of the best selling and most loved Atari 2600 games of all time, it's also been one of the most requested for a Squad Challenge. It's also pretty easy to get your hands on, so hopefully we'll have lots of members participating. River Raid can be found on many Activision compilations and Atari Flashback systems. Let's see how far you can get. Enjoy!

PS Justin - we need to do something about the broken CAPCHA on the sign up page.  I invited a bunch of new folks to the past few challenges, but they are unable to create a new account on the forums.

 

 

Thanks Rick, I'm on it. Captcha has been down for a couple months. That issue all be resolved shortly with the site upgrade and people will be able to sign up for new accounts without a problem.

Yes! Please let us know when we can invite people again. I know there have been some who wanted to join but couldn't.

It's been a real pain. :wreck-it-ralph: Captcha was lost just like the chatroom, no warning no notice. I can sign people up manually, meaning you give me their email address, desired screen name, and I create a new account for them from scratch, including a password and send them login info. I'm happy to do it. This issue will be resolved soon with the site upgrade and people will be able to sign up on their own the way they're supposed to.

 

River Raid is off to a good start!

So, my first video had a false copyright claim against it.

I disputed it, but made a new River Raid video to potentially replace. But it too was falsely claimed by the same YouTuber.

So I wanted to ask: Did any other River Raid videos made for this thread get claimed like mine did?

Sounds like a not-so-nice nemesis is attempting to deplatform you.
