I need help to ID an old Atari game.

I used to have an Atari back in the day (over 20 years ago) and there was a game on it I really loved playing. I can't find any correct ID for it anywhere online. Hopefully someone here can help me. (Probably someone older. :P )

Description of game play:

Player is in control of a fighter plane flying over a river. The object of the game is to shoot any obstacles, such as ships, other planes, and bridges over the river. As the levels get harder, small islands get introduced to the river, and the player has to maneuver around it, along with an increased amount of enemy ships and planes. The bridges at the end of the level also get wider, taking more shots to destroy them in order to advance. The plane controlled by the player also flies faster to increase difficulty. In 2 player mode, player 1's plane is white, player 2's plane is black, and you take turns, like in Super Mario.

Hopefully someone can help. I really loved this game, and I still have perfectly working Atari. I'd like to play it sometime.

Yeah, that was ET the Game. Sorry.

In all honesty, after weeks of detective work, I think you might be referring to River Raid for the Atari 2600.
