WWF European Rampage Tour is the second (after WWF WrestleMania) and last WWF game released on home computers during the 20th century. It is a tag team tournament between you and 3 other teams in 3 different European cities. If your team makes it through, you get to challenge a 4th team for the tag team championship. Up to 2 players can play, but not at the same time unless they face each other in practice mode.

Unused Text

WWF.EXE: the game's executable actually contains plain text, some of which is used and some of it isn't:

Game Text

The following text isn't used because if you win the championship it cuts immediately into Jimmy Hart's announcement. And yes, the word "surprise" is misspelled as "suprise":

After one of the most exciting wrestling matches ever seen in New York, the WWF Tag Team Championship belts have two new owners.
We have just received word of a suprise announcement from Jimmy Hart - the mouth of the south.
Let's go live to our New York studios

Weird Credits

Did the QA team try to build a lamp from vegetables?

Tested by Gareth & Kane - Only fourteen more cabbages and a tomato needed, But possibly the Lamp will succeed.

Serious Credits

Additional PC code by Alistair Hale, Richard Underhill, and Colin Gordon

Unused Mode

In WWE, titles cannot change hands via a count-out or disqualification unless explicitly stipulated otherwise. True enough, if you win the championship via a count-out, the game gets stuck. Does WWF.EXE contain references to this situation?

Unused Characters

In practice mode, player #1 picks the wrestlers like in normal mode, but player #2 must play the game's lesser team, The Nasty Boys. However, an undocumented button combination allows player #2 to switch into one of the game's other teams. This means 2 things:

  1. Does WWF.EXE contain info on this button combination?
  2. It may be possible to hack this game to play one of the other teams in regular non practice mode.
