The characters you play were once ordinary people until they were mutated into the game's monsters: George, the giant ape; Lizzie, the giant lizard; and Ralph, the giant wolf. George was mutated after swallowing mega-vitamins, Lizzie was mutated after bathing in a radioactive lake, and Ralph was mutated after eating sausage scam. The mutants' goal is to destroy every city which they come upon. The game has 768 days of destruction and some of them are alike. The players move from city to city destroying skyscrapers and various vehicles and eating people that get in the way. Health is awarded at startup and during the game by putting quarters in. Health is decreased by being shot by National Guardsmen, being hit by another monster, falling, being hit by cops or tanks, going underwater, being struck by lightning, or by eating something bad, like dynamite.

King (Kong)-sized arcade fun
25 October 2013 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

I don't care how futuristic any arcade might be, if I see a Rampage machine sitting in the corner I will be feeding it money. Rampage was ported to just about every system over the years and remains as much fun today is it was back in 1986.

The player can choose between three monsters: George - a giant ape, Lizzie - a dinosaur, or Ralph - huge werewolf. They were experimented on by Scumlabs and transformed from humans into city-wrecking monsters of mayhem. The purpose of the game is to smash the buildings until they collapse while fighting off the attacking choppers and tanks, maybe munching on a hapless civilian or two while you're at it.

Simple, but loads of fun. It's a shame that it never entered into pop culture as much as Pac-Man, Mario, or Sonic.
