Description of Gauntlet II

MobyGames description of this excellent sequel to Gauntlet: "Based on the arcade game, Gauntlet II is very similar to the original. Up to four players (a wizard, a warrior, an elf, and a valkyre) make their way through various mazes, collect treasures and magic potions, and fend off assorted creatures and ghosts."

Although it is true that Gauntlet II has almost identical layout as the original, some new, interesting features have been added to make gameplay a bit more complex. There are health-draining force fields and new monsters such as sorcerers, blobs of acid, and a black monster that homes in on you and saps your health. The levels also start changing randomly after level 5.

Less important is the ability to choose what colour you want your character to be, and if you're playing with a friend, it's now possible for both of you to choose the same character. The graphics and sound effects are just as good and the game is as good as, if not better than, the original.

In short, if you like Gauntlet, you will definitely love this underrated sequel. A great game to play with friends huddling around the same computer :) Two thumbs up!

The NES version isn't too bad either, but I prefer the arcade.

Works fine on DFEND Reloaded. The sound is choppy as heck, but it plays fine
