WWF European Rampage Tour is a game based on the World Wrestling Federation, created by Arc Developments in 1992 for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and MS-DOS. It capitalizes on the success of the previous WWF game for home computers, WWF WrestleMania, and was aimed predominantly at the European markets. It was the last WWF game released strictly for home computers until the release of WWF With Authority! in 2001.

Gameplay[edit]

The player forms a tag team choosing from "Macho Man" Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart and then must first defeat the tag teams of The Nasty Boys, Money Inc., and The Natural Disasters three times each (first in The Britannic Arena in London, England, followed by The Deutsche Nationale Arena in Munich, Germany, and finally the Palais Omnisports arena in Paris, France). The final match is a championship bout with The Legion of Doom in New York City's Madison Square Garden.

Each wrestler possesses several basic wrestling attacks and their own signature grapple maneuver. The action can be less confined to the ring as the player has more room to move around the centre stage and can choose from a variety of weapons to use against opponents. Unlike its predecessor WWF WrestleMania, there is no time limit for the matches.

The game also features two player title and practice modes.

Commodore 64 version[edit]

The Commodore 64 version plays much like its counterparts, except it features only singles matches. The four selectable wrestlers from the other versions are also present in this version. The player must defeat Jerry Sags from The Nasty Boys, Typhoon from The Natural Disasters, and Irwin R. Schyster from Money Inc. in various venues before challenging Animal from The Legion of Doom for the championship. A two-player practice mode is also included.
