Controls are adapted well from the arcade’s trackball, and the sound is pretty close to the arcade, even including most of the voice samples. Although simple, it’s a unique and exciting action, and destroying a second player’s castle is delectable.

Simple Vogelperspektivengrafik beherrscht den Bildschirm. Dann kam die große Überraschung: Verständliche Sprachausgabe beim NES, aber Hallo! Ansonsten lebt Rampart nicht von der Grafik, sondern vom Spielprinzip. Die Mischung aus Strategie, Action und Geschicklichkeit ist nahezu perfekt und sorgt für jede Menge Spielspaß.

Rampart's graphics and sound are nothing to shout about, even though a surprisingly good digitized voice calls out commands. But strategy with intense play and a puzzle twist kept us on the ramparts long after we'd run out of sea chanteys.

Reading about the gameplay on the virtual page sounds as enthralling as “The Lawrence Welk Show,” but give Rampart a chance. Its simple blend of action and strategy is addicting. You meant well, young Dylan, but you were wrong.
Overall, though Rampart lacks many functional aspects present in the arcade version, Bitsmasters successfully converted a fabulous arcade title into an above-average NES title. A fabulous concept, complicated and challenging game play, and great head-to-head action make Rampart a worthwhile purchase.

Grafisch enttäuscht das Modul stark, erreicht man doch gerade mal durchschnittliches NES Niveau. Simpel-Optik aus der Vogelperspektive ist hier Tagesordnung und auch die aus der Atari Lynx Version bekannten hübschen Standbilder vermisst man schmerzlich. Hinzu gesellt sich dann auch noch gelegentliches, leichtes Flackern der Sprites. Technisch nicht nur verbesserungswürdig, sondern schlichtweg enttäuschend.
This is one which makes me think, but it does need more variety to keep you going.
