The original game presents a simple premise that caries on for the rest of the series. You choose to play as three simultaneous characters George (a Film/KingKong-like {{Expy}}), Lizzy (a Franchise/{{Godzilla}} {{Expy}}), or Ralph ([[OurWereWolvesAreDifferent a giant werewolf]]), [[WasOnceAMan humans mutated into giant monsters]] through radiation linked to the nefarious SCUM Labs. The goal of each level is to destroy each building in the given city before time runs out. Along with that, you are able to eat helpless civilians as well as destroy helicopters, tanks, cars, boats and trains. The game runs on a cycle, as when you reach past level 768 (Plano, Illinois), you return to level one [[AliensInCardiff (Peoria, Illinois)]].

* MonumentalDamage: Surprisingly averted for the most part. Even though you can fight in major cities throughout the games, you rarely ever come into contact with famous landmarks.

* AliensInCardiff: You'd expect an outbreak of giant monsters to happen in [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Tokyo]] or [[BigApplesauce New York]]. No, it's Peoria, Illinois.
** One of the last cities featured in ''World Tour'' is New York.

The first ''Rampage'' was ported to almost every Atari console out there from the Atari 2600 to the Atari Lynx, as well as the Commodore 64, MS-DOS/IBM PC, ZX Spectrum, NES, and Sega Master System. It should be noted that the NES, Sega Master System and Atari Lynx versions actually end instead of going through a cycle. The NES version only supported to characters, omitting Ralph, while the Lynx version kepted all three while also adding a fourth character, Larry the rat. ''Rampage'' has since been included on various classic compilations game sets such as 2003's Midway Arcade Treasures. This game along with ''Rampage: World Tour'' are also available as a bonus feature in ''Rampage: Total Destruction''. In 2000, Creator/WilliamsElectronics had ''Rampage'' as well as other Williams games licensed to Shockwave to test out there online gaming platform ''Shockwave Arcade Collection''. The game is also available for the iOS through the Midway arcade app.

* {{Gorn}}: ''World Tour'' is the only game in the series with any level of gore in it, though its relatively tame. People will splat into a flesh colored mess of skeleton and guts when jumped on or kicked, small blood splattered happens when the monsters are shot at, and the death of SCUM Labs CEO Eustace DeMonic at the end of the game is a bit gruesome. Regardless, the game keeps the tone relatively cartoony.
