    Welcome to my FAQ for Rampage.  Since the game is just a linear type of
    game, there is a general walkthrough provided.  This walkthrough will be broken
    up into the game itself and strategies for survival.  Input is appreciated
    along with constructive criticism.  If you wish to e-mail me thoughts on this
    FAQ, better ways of doing things, other strategies, etc., feel free.  Make sure
    you put Rampage as the subject.  If you don't, I'm liable to discard the e-mail

    | 5.  OVERVIEW |===============================================================
    +==============+
    
    The arcades are still slowly recovering from the big crash in the early 1980's.
    Although some of the mainstay companies such as Atari, Sega, Williams, and
    Bally Midway are still around, other companies such as Centuri and Gremlin have
    been lost in the fallout.  Games have also gotten more creative and definitely
    more detailed.  This has raised the bar and forced gaming companies to be more
    innovative in their game design.  Rampage was a different type of game.  It was
    based on the premise of the 1950's "B" science fiction movies where marauding
    monsters attack cities and populations.  Of course, the monsters were the
    result of some sort of freak genetic disaster.  Rampage proved to be a rather
    popular game and it sold pretty well.  The game also allowed a player to "buy
    in" and play another monster (if available).  This game has also been ported to
    home video consoles and computers which has done nothing to diminish its
    popularity.  Other notable games from this year were Arkanoid, Joust 2, Rolling
    Thunder, and Top Gunner.  Have fun destroying the cities that are put before
    you.

    | 6.  THE GAME |===============================================================
    +==============+ 
    
    Rampage is a two-dimensional, platform-style game.  You get to be one of three
    different monsters.  Each has a name and a story as to what happened to them.
    The monsters are:
    
    George :  The result of a mega-vitamin that went horribly wrong.  The mega-
              vitamin turned George into a giant ape.  George climbs and jumps
              better then the other two monsters.
    
    Lizzie :  She decided to go to the lake to relax.  Unfortunately, there was
              something else besides water in the lake...it was radioactive waster.
              Lizzie was changed into a giant lizard whose speed is the best of the
              three monsters.
    
    Ralph  :  He was the big sausage king and he was always looking for new ways to
              spice up his food.  Unfortunately, the additive he used turned him
              into a giant wolf.  In this form, Ralph is the strongest of the three
              monsters.
    
    The main goal of all these monsters is to cause as much destruction and
    devastation as possible.  To achieve this, the monsters must keep their energy
    bar high by partaking of things that restore energy and avoiding those hazards
    that will take it away.  There are a lot of dangerous things out there.  Good
    luck and good hunting.
    
     ______________________________
    / 6.1  The Controls and Moves /________________________________________________
    ------------------------------
    
    The controls on this game are pretty easy.  It will only take a little practice
    in order to become proficient with them.  Each monster has their own set of
    controls.  George's controls are the left, Lizzie's controls are in the middle,
    and Ralph's controls are on the right.  Regardless of location, all controls
    are situated as follows:
    
    -  An eight-way joystick
    
    -  Jump Button
    
    -  Punch Button
    
     _________________________
    / 6.2  The Playing Field /_____________________________________________________
    -------------------------
    
    Rampage has a pretty easy playing field.  Since all the action is two-
    dimensional, it should be relatively easy to see everything that is going on
    around you.  I have included an example of what the playing screen looks like:

    / 6.3  Scoring /_______________________________________________________________
    ---------------
    
    Scoring in this game is relatively complicated due to the various numbers of
    enemies.  In addition, you also score points for hitting buildings and
    collecting bonus and/or food items.

    * YOU WILL ONLY GET THE POINTS IF YOUR MONSTER DESTROYS THE BUILDING.
      BUILDINGS DESTROYED BY THINGS OTHER THEN YOUR MONSTER WILL NOT EARN YOU THESE
      POINTS.
    
    Games are played until your chosen monster runs out of energy.  You can insert
    another quarter, and continue your game from where you left off (if the machine
    is set up that way).  In addition, you can also keep your score (again, if the
    machine is set up that way).
    
    Other players can join the game to help or hinder you by inserting their
    coin(s) and pressing the appropriate jump button for the character they wish to
    play.
    
    No free men are awarded for this game.
    
     ______________________________________
    / 6.4  Specific Features of this Game /________________________________________
    --------------------------------------
    
    Rampage is unique in the fact that it has many different things that can either
    help or hurt your monster.  In addition to this, each monster also has an
    assigned victim which will be discussed later in this chapter.
    
    
    +----------------+
    | 6.4.1  Enemies |-------------------------------------------------------------
    +----------------+
    
    These are the things that will be actively opposing your monster.
    
    Helicopters:  This is the air support.  They usually swoop in and fire off a 
                  rapid burst causing serious damage.  They can also drop bombs
                  from high altitude.
    
    Lightning:  This is just a lazy cloud floating over the city firing off bolts
                of lightning at your monster.  Causes some serious damage when it
                hits.
    
    National Guardsmen:  These guys are all over the place.  They appear out of the
                         windows to take pot shots and throw dynamite.  Some even
                         carry demolitions to the base of buildings to destroy them
                         and hopefully your monster.
    
    Paratrooper:  These guys land on buildings and are tasked to defend it at all
                  costs.  That means when you get on said building, they will fire
                  rapidly at your monster taking out some significant health in the
                  process.
    
    Police Cars:  Like tanks but they move and fire faster then tanks.
    
    Tanks:  Heavily armored, these vehicles are slow but they pack quite a punch.
            They can knock your monster off buildings and even to the opposite edge
            of the screen.
    
    +-------------------+
    | 6.4.2  Bad Things |----------------------------------------------------------
    +-------------------+
    
    These are things found in the buildings.  Grabbing and/or eating them can be
    detrimental to your monsters health.  This also covers damage that can occur to
    your monster not covered in the Enemies chapter.
    
    Bathtub with Person:  Some tubs have someone actually taking a bath.  Munch
                          them down quickly or they will use a blast of water from
                          their tub to knock you off the building.
    
    Cactus:  This plant from the arid regions of the world doesn't sit well in your
             monster's stomach.
    
    Dynamite:  It seems that someone has squirreled away some sticks of dynamite in
               the walls of the building.  If you find one, jump out of their
               quickly or take a hefty amount of damage from the blast.
    
    Light Bulb:  Grabbing at it while it is lit up is a bad thing and will shock
                 your monster.
    
    Neon Sign:  Slugging at this can either give you points for breaking it or it
                will shock your monster.
    
    Photographer:  These guys want a picture of you in your monster glory.  You
                   will encounter them while ravaging buildings.  One flash from
                   their camera and you will be knocked off the building.  Eat them
                   before that happens.
    
    Poison:  This is indicated by the "skull and crossbones" icon.  Don't grab this
             unless you want to see a big decrease in your monster's health.
    
    Television:  When the boob-tube is on, don't grab it or be prepared for a
                 shocking experience.  If the TV is off, grab it to collect the
                 points.
    
    Toaster without Toast:  If there isn't toast in the toaster, don't grab at it
                            or your monster will be shocked in the process.
    
    Toilet and Bathtub:  These two bathroom items are not only unsanitary, they
                         also give no benefits when munched down.
    
    +-----------------------+
    | 6.4.3  Healthy Things |------------------------------------------------------
    +-----------------------+
    
    These are items that will increase your monster's health.
    
    Bowl of Fruit:  These bananas and apples will give your monster a slight health
                    increase.
    
    Hamburger:  These treats are usually found in the middle of the buildings you
                are destroying.
    
    Milk:  For strong bones and muscles to ravage more cities.
    
    Toast:  Found in the toaster.  If you are patient, it will pop up for some
            health giving relief.
    
    Turkey:  Found in windowsills cooling off.
    
    +--------------------+
    | 6.4.4  Good Things |---------------------------------------------------------
    +--------------------+
    
    These are items that will give you points.
    
    Bag of Loot:  Grab this for quick points.
    
    Civilians:  Give your monster big points.
    
    Flower Pot:  Find these sunflowers and hit them to knock them out of the
                 buildings and collect the points.  Can also be used to take out
                 enemy units.
    
    Manhole Cover:  When the sewer worker pops up, smash the cover.  Hit it
                    multiple times to take out vehicles and air units.
    
    Television:  Collect the points when the TV is off by knocking it out of the
                 building.
    
    Train:  You can smash the train back and forth for big points.  Use two
            monsters to play "train pong".
    
    Safe:  Knock it out of the building to break it.  Then collect the goodies that
           are revealed.  This also can be used to take out enemy units.
    
    Vehicles (Civilian and non-Civilian):  Smash these for points.
    
    +---------------------------+
    | 6.4.5  Designated Victims |--------------------------------------------------
    +---------------------------+
    
    These are people that your monster can grab from the windows.  While holding a
    designated victim, only the National Guardsmen quit firing.  The designated
    victims are:
    
    The lady in red is George's victim, the guy in the yellow shirt and white
    boxers is Lizzie's victim, and the guy in the suit is Ralph's victim.
    
    After you hold your victim for a random period of time, they will do a few
    uppercuts to your monster's jaw and force your monster to drop them.  You can
    then eat them form more points.

    / 6.5  The Days /______________________________________________________________
    ----------------
    
    In order to access these things, there are 768 days in this game.  Fortunately,
    you only will have to do 128 days before they repeat themselves again.  The
    days and specifics about them are discussed later in the chapter.
    
    This chart is a breakdown of how the days are set up.  It will include the
    number of buildings you need to destroy and any unique features (if any) of the
    day plus some of the enemies encountered.

    | 7.  PLAYING THE GAME |=======================================================
    +======================+
    
    You start the game with your monsters at the bottom of the screen.  After the
    game starts, it is time for you to start the "urban renewal" process.
    
    -  After you start, you will start being attacked.  There is no real way to
       avoid a lot of the attacks by the National Guardsmen due to the sheer volume
       of fire they are laying down.  Your best bet is to keep moving and make your-
       self a hard target to hit.
    
    -  To move quickly from building to building, jump toward the building and push
       up to grab the building.  This enables you to use your monster's ability to
       both jump and climb at the same time.
    
    -  To relieve some pressure from the National Guardsmen, climb up the buildings
       and smash the windows where they pop out from or just eat them when they are
       leaning out the window.  Move quickly since their buddies are still shooting
       or throwing dynamite at your monster.
    
    -  Unless you are totally obsessed with points, let the National Guardsmen do
       your work for you.  A great example of this is that about midway through a
       day, a National Guardman will rush out from the side of the screen with
       explosives.  They will place them at the base of a building.  This
       demolishes the building and helps you along to the next day.
    
    -  Another way to destroy buildings it to weaken it up, then jump on the roof.
       Your monster's weight will cause the building to collapse.
    
    -  The air units can be rather dangerous.  During the beginning days, the heli-
       copters will overfly your monster, turn around, and then dive in for the
       attack.  You can destroy the helicopters when they are coming in to prevent
       their attack.  Also, when you are moving around, you make it harder for them
       to get a bead on your monster.
    
    -  During the later days, helicopters will drop bombs.  Again, paying attention
       to everything that is going on will allow you to easily escape the bomb
       being dropped.  You can also entice the helicopter to drop a bomb when you
       are on top of a building.  When the bomb is dropped, jump out of the way and
       let the bomb do the damage to the building for you.
    
    -  Make sure that you either grab the food or eat the National Guardsmen to
       keep your health up.  If you can hold out for 128 days, you will get all of
       your health restored for that day and days 256, 384, 512, 640, and 768.
       Also keep in mind that if you punch too fast, you may end up getting some-
       thing that will harm your monster.
    
    -  Paratroopers can be a particular pain.  If you plan to attack a building
       with a Paratrooper unit on it, make sure you quickly scale the building and
       eat said unit.  It makes life a lot easier since their rapid fire can put a
       major hurting on your monster.
    
    -  Ground units such as Tanks and Police Cars can be a real nuisance.  They
       fire some pretty heavy shells which not only cause a lot of damage, but they
       also can knock back your monster for quite a distance.  There are some ways
       to combat these units:
    
       -  Climb quickly up a building.  When the unit passes below you, jump down
          and give it a good punch.
    
       -  Time the shots and rush the ground unit in-between shots to get a good
          punch in.
    
       -  Use available weapons such as manhole covers, flower pots, or safes to
          drop on them.  These things also allow you to hit them at a distance.
    
    -  Be sure and watch what your monster grabs at.  There are a lot of hazards in
       the buildings and it is pretty bad when your monster buys the farm doing
       dumb stuff such as grabbing electrical items such as toasters and light
       bulbs.
    
    -  In addition to the above, dynamite is sometimes in the middle of buildings.
       When uncovered, you have about two to three seconds to get your monster out
       of there before they are blown off the building.  Eating it will only
       decrease your monster's health so run far away when it is uncovered.

    | 8.  CONCLUSION |=============================================================
    +================+
    
    This game was definitely a quarter eater.  It was fun to spend hours of mind-
    less entertainment just going around and destroying as much as you could.
    Without having to deal with bosses or some kind of complicated quest, Rampage
    proved its worth time and time again in letting one get out their
    "aggressions".  Since the premise of the game was simple plus you could
    cooperatively play with or against other players, it added a whole new
    dimension to the game.  I know when this game came out, it was regularly
    occupied so it seemed to have been rather popular.  Although this game wasn't
    very popular, it still was a lot of fun to play.  Unfortunately, it is very
    rare to find this machine anywhere.  However, through the miracle of emulation,
    a whole new generation is realizing what we "old" folks enjoyed those many
    years ago.  In addition, www.shockwave.com is bringing many of these classic
    games back.  Check out their site to see what ones are there.  I hope this
    guide helps you in being able to get the most amount of gameplay for this game.
    If you do have other ideas or thoughts, please e-mail me and share them.  Who
    knows, maybe I'll start a Q&A Chapter in this guide if enough people ask the
    same questions.  Anyway, thank you again for reading this guide.
