MY PROMISE
My games are genuine, install in one step, look, sound and play in Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP like they did in the old days, or your money back. This is my unconditional guarantee for three years.

WHAT IS INCLUDED
This listing includes the original game CD. An on-screen printable manual is also included. The box is pictured for reference and is not included.

I will also provide a compatibility CD that will allow the game to run under ALL VERSIONS of Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP, both 32 and 64 bit. Note that gamepads and network play are not supported.

INSTALLATION
One step: Insert my CD and the game will automatically work on your computer. Done. Yes, it's that simple.

Want to play? Click the icon. Want the game off your computer? Click Uninstall. Zero hassle.

TECH SUPPORT
Rapid response technical support for three years is always an e-mail or phone call away.

In the extremely rare event I cannot get this title to work on your system I will take it back for a full refund. All I ask is minimal assistance from you during the troubleshooting process.

 

The Game
From the opening animation, there's plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor about fantasy adventurers. A dragon swoops down over a village as the voices of four adventurers (apparently watching the intro animation like a movie) make humorous comments such as "The flying chicken is very angry." The four adventurers are basically the same four hero types as in Gauntlet: the elf archer Eryc, the Valkyrie-like Kellina, the brutish barbarian Zared, and the sorceress Levina. The two-bit plot has the adventurers going into a dragon's dungeon to slay the evil beast and gain gold and glory for themselves. If you still don't believe in the similarities yet, allow me continue.

Gameplay is exactly the same as Gauntlet. There's the top-down view of the characters as they move around a dungeon picking up treasure, potions that give you health (like food in Gauntlet), and power-ups that will improve your weapons and shields. Along the way there will be baddies to slay and their spawning points (spiders' nests, beast cages) to destroy. The monotony of the dungeon crawl is broken up by the appearances of the "boss" creatures. Appearing as just enlarged versions of the smaller creatures, there's not much to be said about them except for the fact that practically one hit from them kills your character.

Character design doesn't divert much from Gauntlet. Each character has a certain set of statistics that depends on what character class is chosen. The barbarian has high weapon strength, but is slow. The elf is quick with his bow and on his feet, but his arrows do little damage. The other two characters fall somewhere in between. During play, the characters make even more humorous comments about the current situation. Each hero type has a different saying for certain events. The elf shouts out "Ha ha! I'm rich!" while the sorceress exclaims "I'm going shopping!" Other conditions such as getting low on health, shooting much-needed items, and slaying large numbers of monsters also have their own sounds. And if for some reason you still aren't convinced of the similarities, just wait till you start mistakenly shooting healing potions.

Monolith deservess some kudos for bringing a much-loved game back to the PC. This game may be Gauntlet, but Gauntlet is still a lot of fun.
