Gauntlet, the original arcade smash hit, is fighting game where you choose a character a let rip into the hordes of enemies that assault you on you way to the end of the level.
It featured a choice of four characters to play with, each with different weapons. Thor the Warrior, with his bludgeoning battle axe. Thyra the Valkyrie, with her close range sword. Questor the Elf, with his long range bow. And Merlin the Wizard with his magical bolts.
You (and another player) must make your way through 100 levels of mayhem and magic.
Ghosts, goblins and even the life draining Death are your enemies. They stream out of generators. Destroy the generators first before tackling the rest.
Find keys to help you progress to the exit. Look for scattered magic potions. These act like smart bombs and clear the screen of all enemies. Beware of poison though. Treasure is abundant throughout the levels and adds to your score.
