Airplanes. – River Raid on Your iPhone!!!

Airplanes. is an iPhone and iPad app that will transport you back to the 80’s as you play through this challenging, jet-flying retro game originally created by Activision for Atari: the game was called “River Raid” and the year was 1982 when video games where fairly new to the world. Now, fast forward 30 years later and you can play this retro classic on your iPhone or iPad. The game features 40 levels in 4 worlds where your mission is fly over the water blasting enemy ships, helicopters and balloons without getting too close to land or running out of fuel to reach the end of each level. The difficulty lies in the plane, a jet that is super touchy and any brush with land costs you a life, which you only have 2 of. To make matters worse your jet plane is still getting 1980’s gas milage, so you must refuel often — I mean really often. There are also enemies in various forms to contend with as you navigate through the tight canals.

I played this game as a kid on the console. Yes, sad I know, but it was a lot of fun then and still is now. I initially underestimated the game due to the lack of fancy graphics, blood splatter, and the word “zombie” common in today’s titles in iTunes. But, as I played on I got a real challenge, especially in level 9 — so it was game on. I Googled how to solve level 9 Airplanes. and River Raid — but no luck. Back in the game, I finally figured it out, but it is my secret and you will have to discover the answer for yourself. I have to admit that Airplanes. crashed a few times, and the sound came and went as I played, but for as much as I played these were minor issues — and probably won’t matter much for the rest of you River Raid fans. Be sure to watch the iPhone video app demo for a complete look at this iOS Universal game application. Check out more of our iPhone video app demos. Crazy Mike
