Rampart (c) 1990 Atari Games.
Rampart is a superb arcade puzzle game in which up to three players must build up a castle using Tetris shaped pieces to form a castle wall and enclose their keep. Each player must then place a limited number of cannons inside their castle wall before the timer expires. Once the cannons have been placed the battle itself begins. Players must target their cannons onto the enemy's castle (or, in the one-player game, enemy ships and peons) and destroy as much of the enemy army as possible before the time limit expires.
Once the battle is over the players must repair their castles, again using tetris shapes. The players' Keep must be completely encircled with castle wall or the game is over. In the single-player sea attack game, any enemy ships that manage to reach the coast nearest the player will unload peons that will attack the player's castle by land.

- TRIVIA -
Rampart was originally released in February 1991 as a dedicated three-player trackball model. Followed in April 1991 by a two-player joystick conversion kit.
790 dedicated units and 1515 conversion kits were produced in the USA.
254 dedicated units and 278 conversion kits were produced in Ireland (for European distribution).
The original selling price was $2,295 at its time of release.
The conversion kit selling price was $945.
The island in Rampart is very similar with a map of Jersey in the Channel Islands, but its purely a coincidence.
- TIPS AND TRICKS -
* The peons that attack you after unloading from the ships cannot fire diagonally.
