Rampart (ランパート) is an arcade game developed by Atari Games. It was brought to the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Master System in 1991.

The Master System version was originally developed for Tengen by RazorSoft and the various permutations of their staff;[8][9] consequently who developed the Mega Drive version is unclear. A Game Gear version of the game was also in development as of mid-1992[10] and was set to be released in December[11].

Gameplay

Rampart is a strategy game, in which the objective is to build and maintain walls around castles (i.e. a "rampart"), while attempting to bring down your opponents. Each player chooses a castle on the map (which on the first round, is given a surrounding wall from the get go), and is given a short amount of time to fortify the area around it, either by fixing the holes caused by other players or building outwards to claim more land. The more land that is fortified, the more cannons are awarded to the player, which can be permanently placed on the map and used as an offensive weapon against others.

Once castles have been fortified and armed, a combat period commenses, where the player aims and fires at others with an on-screen cursor. A player loses if, during the subsequent build phase, they are unable to circle a castle with a complete wall.

In the arcades, Rampart supports up to three human players simultaneously. This is dropped to two for the Sega conversions.
