Gauntlet is another GenX classic brought back to life. The trailer is out for Arrowhead Studios’s dungeon crawl, which is out on Steam this year, and it doesn’t look all that different from the original, which is a good thing. Better graphics, of course, but the same four characters (Warrior, Wizard, Elf and my fave, Valkyrie) dishing pain to skeletons and zombies. It’s got procedural maps, too, which is always a good thing.
The best part about this game was that it was multiplayer. I made a lot of friends playing this game back in the 80s. And not only the arcade, but the DOS version. There were many Saturdays spent crowded at the keyboard hacking away. Ah, the memories, and nostalgia will sell some I’m sure. Can’t wait to hit them dungeons again!
