1001 Video GamesThe Arcade version of Gauntlet II appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
Cuntlet 2A hex-edited, X-rated copy of the MS-DOS version of this game circulated underground under the name Cuntlet 2. As well as an explicit title screen (liberating the the valkyrie of her constrictive loincloth), enemy sprites were changed (to predictably "hilarious" things like bums, dildos, and of course the Death Penis) and "IT" (the communicable monster-attractor) was tastefully renamed "AIDS." Instead of leaving behind a key ring upon character death, instead in your wake is left a wet puddle on the sheets.
Finally, the pedestrian Barbarian, Elf, Valkyrie, and Wizard found themselves renamed Adonis the Love God, Queer the Fag, Venus the Whore, and Moon Beam the Hippy, respectively.
SpeechGauntlet II featured digitized sounds through the PC internal speaker. Some packages also included a Tandy SL / TL upgrade which took advantage of the digital sound capabilities of these computers (The SL / TL disk was also available from Mindscape if the package didn't include it. It seems inclusion of the enhanced sound disk was random)
