The River Raid Champion of PAX Aus 2014

They say that the Melbourne Cup (horse race) stops the nation, but last weekend at PAX Aus, it was Rob Caporetto that stopped every contender by becoming the C64 River Raid champion.

Just like the favourites in the famous horse race, Rob was a sure thing for the River Raid high score challenge. His favouritism provided modest odds, but I still put the house as surety of his win.

To ensure there was a level playing field, the contestants were using a Wico Boss joystick. Rob managed to amass a respectable high score of 36,520 with many bridges crossed. I am sure Carol Shaw would have been proud, if she’d been there.

Well done Rob!
