In Gauntlet Legends, an evil sorcerer has set the minions of the underworld free. Now, it is up to the four heroes from the corners of the realm to save the world. You take the role of a warrior, valkyrie, wizard, or archer and travel throughout the world searching for the rune stones that will return the demons to the underworld. While the action is set in 3D environments, the classic Gauntlet gameplay remains intact. Players must travel through maze-like stages, hacking and slashing through every enemy in sight. Along the way, players can collect food to recover health and gold to purchase improved stats. There are also a huge number of power-ups that have temporary effects including fire breath, phoenix familiar, and magic potions that can be stored for later use. Gauntlet Legends continues the gameplay tradition of the arcade classic Gauntlet.
