DescriptionGauntlet is an action game where players choose characters and fight their way through hordes of enemies that assault them on the way to the end of the level. One or two players must make their way through 100 levels of mayhem and magic.
The game features a choice of four characters to play with, each with different weapons. Thor the Warrior has a bludgeoning battle axe, Thyra the Valkyrie has a close range sword, Questor the Elf has his long range bow, and Merlin the Wizard has magical bolts.
Ghosts, goblins and even the life-draining Death are among the enemies. Enemies stream out of generators, so destroy these before tackling the rest.
Keys are needed to open the many doors within the levels, and in some situations a door will contain only bonus items, not a progressive route. Scattered magic potions act like smart bombs and clear the screen of all enemies. Beware of poison though, this reduces the character's energy level. Treasure is abundant throughout the levels and adds to the player's score.

TriviaThere is an interesting note in the documentation for PCjr users:
Note to Pcjr users: If you wish to run the program in 16-color mode, the line DEVICE=PCJRMEM.COM present in the config.sys file on your boot disk must be changed to read DEVICE=PCJRMEM.COM /C instead.
This gives a clue as to how to get other Tandy 1000 graphic-mode games running on a PCjr (ironic, since the Tandy is a clone of the PCjr).
