Ramparts was one of the few really original arcade games of last year, and I played it a lot. It's a simple, but very challenging game with plenty of neat touches to keep you on your toes. How does this Master System version compare? Well, it's excellent! All the features of the arcade game have been packed in, and there's a stiff challenge on offer on the highest difficulty setting. The graphics and sound aren't anything to write home about (the ones on the arcade original were pretty pathetic too), but in the playability stakes Ramparts is superb, offering an entertaining, addictive and long-lasting challenge (especially with two players) which should be checked out.
With some appropriate music and some graphical improvements this game could have been even better, but as it is it’s a very enjoyable strategy game. With the option of one and two player modes, as well as the various difficulty levels for one player games this one should keep fans (and even non-fans) of strategy games occupied for a while, if at least just to beat your high score!
As it is Rampart on the Master System is a great game, it's the type of product that is easy to forget about but hard to put down once you've started playing. It offers a good mixture of action and puzzle solving, and the two player mode is well worth the price of admission. It's not perfect but Rampart on the Master System is well for tracking down if you're a fan of its arcade action.
