Gauntlet is a series of hack and slash dungeon-crawlers originally designed by Atari. In the original game, up to four players can play simultaneously, though early console and home computer systems usually reduced the number of players to 2. Each player controls one of the four heroes: the warrior, valkyrie, wizard, or elf in the game. Each labyrinth is filled with generators that produce monsters like ghosts, grunts, demons, and more. Players defeat the monsters with their weapons and by using magical potions to clear the board. Locked doors are opened with keys that must be collected along with treasure and assorted power-ups. As player progress further into the game, the monsters become more powerful and the mazes more devious.
