Depot Games: Laser War
Links: Web Site
Developers: Todd Cope
Number of Players:
4 (Split Screen)
In Laser War you must strategically build and defend your castle. The game is based on the old arcade game Rampart and so you will find many similarities. Build your castle and break down your opponents defenses by destroying his/her castle walls and laser cannons. You then have the opportunity to repair the damage caused and place some more weaponry.

Fixed a small crashing bug (thanks to Tim Sparks for pointing it out).
Switched to high-precision timing for Windows port.

Tied up all the loose ends.
Most of the in-game graphics are finished now

New building pieces
Building pieces are now generated properly
Working enclosure detection, now works just like in Rampart
Partially implemented the menu graphics
Cannons not enclosed cannot fire lasers
Modified enclosure detection routine, still buggy

- Dropped from 6 to 1 due to friend voting.
- Ooo very good game! Took me a minute to figure out what was going on -- but hey, that's the classic feel ^_- Sure, it's a little monotonus, but all the same I enjoyed it. 4.
- Pretty fun game. It seems a bit too short though. I also thought the original Rampart was missing a cooperative two player mode. It would be nice to see this game having it.
