Description

Tetris meets shoot-'em-up, Rampart is a game combining strategy and artillery action. Build your castle from Tetris-style pieces, place your cannons, bombard the enemy, try to repair, do it all over again. The original arcade release has a single-player and a two-player mode; later revisions incorporate three-player gameplay.

Trivia

Version differences

Two versions of Rampart were released on the NES - North America saw a version ported for Jaleco by Bitmasters (who would also do the Super NES and DOS ports), while in Japan Konami released their own in-house version of the game. Jaleco's version of "Rampart" is faithful to the original arcade version, while Konami's version is a more light-hearted take on the game with 4 different scenarios and more depth than the Jaleco version.
