DOS - 1992
Description of Rampart
A near-perfect conversion of Atari's 1990 arcade hit. Rampart is a game of medieval warfare that boasts fast, furious gameplay, good graphics, and a very high addictiveness quotient.
Like all good arcade games, Rampart is easy to learn but hard to win. The goals in the Combat Phase in one- and two-player games are slightly different. In one-player game, your goal is to sink enemy ships, while the goal is to destroy enemy castle walls in two-player mode.
What makes Rampart different from most arcade games, and what makes it a lot of fun to play, is the great combination of action and strategy elements. Before you can enter the Combat Phase, you must first strategically place the cannons within the castle walls. After the Combat Phase, you move into the Repair Phase in which you can repair your walls. In this phase, you can also place (randomly created) parts of walls over the landscape to gain more territory to place cannons on. There is a time limit for placing walls, so your friend won't have to twiddle his thumbs impatiently while you scrutinize all strategic locations ;)
With excellent graphics and the same solid gameplay that fully retains the addictiveness of original arcade hit, Rampart is simply a must-have for action fans, and even strategy fans who fancy a bit of action. The music is a bit dull, but that's a very minor nitpick.
Highly recommended, especially if you can find someone to play against in the two-player mode.

Played this a lot in the arcades in 1990. Bought it on the Amiga and was disappointed, it's slow and missing a lot of gfx and sfx.
Later played the DOS version, completely blows the amiga version away. Despite being released around 6 months before than amiga version, it is arcade perfect, even better with MT32 music and sfx.
