Rampart now available on the Playstation Store

This week on the Playstation Store is a remake of Rampart for the Playstation 3. Rampart is a fast paced strategy game where you place cannons and try to defend your wall from enemy ships. There are six levels to play and top scores will be added to an online leader board. The main feature that makes Rampart worth checking, if you were a fan of the arcade game is online play through the Playstation Network.

    I think Rampart is possibly the best designed game ever made. Every tiny aspect of it has a purpose. It also “feels” right.

    In fact, this fills me with a bit of trepidation over the Playstation Store version. For every version of Rampart that isn’t the arcade version (or an emulation of the arcade) has gotten the play details wrong in some seemingly minor, but ultimately profound, way. NES version: too few ships & grunts are wrong. SNES version (among the best otherwise): only one ship ever moves at a time & finishing a level means clearing the screen instead of sinking a prerequisite number of ships. Home computer versions: usually add unnecessary features. Genesis version: sucks. Famicom version: very strange.

    Rampart seems so simple, yet is actually so complex, that I don’t think anyone but the original developers, or someone who has played it for -years-, could be trusted to do it justice.
