Boxtext
Experience the ultimate fantasy that is GAUNTLET.

GAUNTLET, the arcade phenomenon, is finally available as a Nintendo Game Pak! Choose one of four legendary characters as your hero: Thor, the Warrior; Thyra, the Valkyrie; Merlin, the Wizard; or Questor, the Elf. The unique two-player option lets you compete against a friende; or join forces to defeat hordes of swarming monsters and to collect food, treasure and magic potions.

Then, prepare yourself for heart-pounding excitement the likes of which you've never experienced before. This Gauntlet sends you on a nobme quest: The recovery of a long-lost Sacred Orb. Search the Five Worlds for magic codes that will unlock the Final Room where the Orb resides. Each World comes with new bewildering mazes and untold dangers to test the mettle of even the most skillful adventurer. As you progress through each maze, the level of difficulty rises. Take heart, we've added special hidden powers and abilities for each character. For increased playability and convenience, a special password feature allows you to restart a game at an advanced level. We've thrown down the gauntlet. Dou you have what it takes to rise to the challenge?
Trivia
Wie die meisten anderen Tengen-Spiele für das NES ist dieses Spiel auch mit dem kopierten Lockout-Chip versehen und wurde daher anfangs nicht von Nintendo lizenziert. Später gab es aber noch eine lizenzierte Version im bekannten grauen NES-Standardmodul.
