    "Strategy" and "arcade" are not words you normally find in the same sentence, but Atari had a solid success years ago with this coin-op castle-and-cannon game.

    You build a fort, stock it with cannon and blast away at attacking galleys. Between rounds, you rebuild castle walls and post more cannon as quickly as possible. The more land you can enclose with ramparts, the more cannon you get.

    In single-player mode, Rampart offers five difficulty levels and provides hints. Your castle is color-coded red or blue.

    When playing head-to-head via a Game Link Cable, there are no enemy fleets. Instead, you pound away at your rival's castle in a match lasting five to 15 rounds. Rebuilding is tougher if you spray your fire around your enemy's ramparts, rather than concentrating on one location.

    In both modes, the CPU gives you different-shaped pieces for rebuilding your walls. Initially, the pieces are mostly straight or L-shaped pieces. As a match advances, though, the CPU throws up odd-shaped pieces, such as plus signs. Placing them wisely takes Tetris-like puzzle mastery.

    The play control involved in aiming and firing your cannon and rebuilding your fortifications is straightforward. Simple, colorful graphics make it easy to track the action. Altogether, Rampart is a fun blend of frenetic action and old-fashioned strategizing.

    Rampart is compatible only with Game Boy Color. It will not work with Game Boy pocket or classic Game Boy.
