Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Gauntlet'

Rating:4 User: Juan F. Ramirez

Great conversion of the classic Atari arcade. Simple graphics are sacrificed for superb playability and adictiveness.

At first you must select a character to play: warrior, valkyrie, wizard or elf, each one with different strengths and weaknesses.

Advance through tens of mazes infested of ghosts, grunts, demons, sorcerers,... in the search of the exit to the next maze. Collect food, potions or treasures. Find keys to open doors. And kill everything that moves.

The two player game is a cool choice. In a nutshell, one of the funniest conversions for the Spectrum and a classic of the dungeons and dragons genre.
