Escalation was one of the most important aspects of arcade gaming. There was an unspoken agreement between developer and player that the coins being dropped into the slot were going to be worth it to see what happened next.
That's something that Roar Rampage understands pretty well. While its tale of a mutant dinosaur wearing a boxing glove smashing up buildings might be a little one-note, you always feel like pushing on a bit further is going to reward you with something explosive or funny to smash.
The game casts you as a giant dinosaur intent on destruction. You control his boxing glove-clad fist, sliding your finger around the screen to smash tower blocks, helicopters, tanks, and anything else unlucky enough to get in the way of your rampage.
It might not have layers of intrigue or mystery, but Roar Rampage has exactly the right amount of destruction required to put a smile on your face
