Run around 100 different eight-way scrolling dungeons, dealing death to the deranged minions and collecting treasure. A one or two-player game, Gauntlet was immensely successful in the arcades and performed well on the Master System.

Gauntlet has appeared on virtually every home computer system on Earth and I'm glad to say that the Sega version tops the lot for sheer addictive playability.
MATT
I was flabbergasted by this game - it's fast, furious and above all, faithful to the coin-op.

What We Say Now

JAZ
Another top-notch conversion whose marks are just as right now as they were then.
RICH
This is still a brilliant coin-op conversion that's just as fresh and exciting as it was the day we first plugged it into the Master System. I wouldn't tinker with any of the marks, they're all fine.
