Beamrider review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews BEAMRIDER for Intellivision from 1983 by Activision! Ride the Beam! RIDE IT! Beamrider is an awesome old school game that plays like a flat Tempest on an early '80s game console. Great gameplay, smooth visuals and some rad sound effects make Beamrider a MUST OWN NOW game on your IntelliVision or IntelliVision II.
