Review 1:
Very addictive Strategy/Action/Tetris-Crossover. Shoot the ships, build
up your castle - sounds simple, but it isn't, coz' the castle-building is
done in Tetris-Style. Well, I like this game very much. It's great for
some action and puzzlin', you can play it for a few minutes during
lunchbreak or so (but beware, there is a chance, you'll stick to it for
more than just five minutes!). Very unique idea I think, just try it out,
even got multiplayer-mode.

Review 2:

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.
