Rampage

Postby Red » Sun Feb 20, 2011 3:53 pm

I first played this game on the NES but when I came across it in the arcades I was stunned. I was only used to playing the Gorilla and Lizard, but in the Arcade version you had access to the Wolf. You also were able to play with 3 players instead of two of only 2. The more monsters the better! The chewing noises the monsters made while eating people was the icing on the cake.

Rampage was one of the few games at the time that allowed other players to get into the action at whatever stage it was currently being played on by entering a credit and jumping right in the game.
Atari had used that same "jump in" feature with Gauntlet a year earlier in 1985.

My favorite memory of playing Rampage:

I was at this water park in Orlando called Wet N Wild and they had a small arcade there. Some kid had figured out how to open the cabinet and kept hitting a button inside to give everyone free credits. We must have played that thing for hours!

Sweet! Did you guys use the free play to your advantage and beat the game? I never made it too far in the arcade version only because I was limited with quarters. The NES version, I got pretty far ;)

I left after awhile because I started getting bored and thought I should probably be going on waterslides instead of playing video games!

The first time I played Rampage was at a skatepark in ohio. Whenever I got tired I would take a break and would goto the arcade they only had about 5 games or so but Rampage, Enduro Racer, and Crystal Castles were the ones I played. I was so found of Crystal Castles that I actually bought my own machine for home in 2000
