Gauntlet: Remake of an great Atari dungeon game

Postby yoi » Wednesday February 1st, 2017 1:54am

I was searching randomly about Atari remake homebrews and found (by second time; first time i found in gamesdbase.com) a game called Gauntlet (there were many versions fo Atari ST, XL/XE, Lynx, NES, Arcade, etc). I guess it there is some features that reminds Hero Quest closely (less Gauntlet 3, because is outdoor seeming an ordinary isometric adventure).

Then i search older videos about that game and randomly found (further than older versions) too a newer version, remake to PC, PS4, etc.

About "great", at first i guess that game is it, even the older versions is good.

Who of you know that game already?


- Gauntlet PC (remake 2014) - official trailer



- Gauntlet 2014 some reviews (IGN rated just 6.8)






Older versions:

- Gauntlet (Atari ST)



- Gauntlet 2 (Atari ST)



- Gauntlet (Atari XL/XE)



- Gauntlet (Arcade)

Yes! I had the luck of playing the remake with 3 friends and it's great--it's very exciting, and especially fun when everyone is jockeying for gold and food. A couple of the friends remarked how similar it was to Heroquest, too!

I have it for the PS4. It was a free game on one of their monthly giveaways. It's really excellent and I'd recommend it. It's very close to the original game, obviously with better graphics. I love how we still fight over who grabbed the food or gold!

I had it on my Spectrum +2 and it was one of my favourite games. Got to level 115 before the tape ran out.

I played it a bit a while back. It's a "good" game, but it doesn't really excel in any regard.

I remember playing Gauntlet as an actual stand up arcade game, in the mall, with a friend of mine.
That has always been one of my favorite video games. I've always wanted to figure out a good way
to simulate the game for the tabletop.

I remember that game as a kid. Cost too much to play for the most part. Most video games were 1 quarter or token per player, Gauntlet required 2. So I would play something else. Now if some other kids fired it up I was there immediately to watch them play.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Ha! I had an unsupervised cleaning job back then, so I'd stop at the arcade between locations and play on the clock. To sweeten it further, I played an Indiana Jones game that awarded redeemable tickets for tokens beforehand. After twenty minutes or so of that I was set to play Guantlet for free for about 45 minutes. Barbarian needed a raise badly.
