Your Computer (Feb, 1987)
If you bought the game, relax, for it is undoubtedly the best version and for anyone who knows and loves the arcade game, it is the only version immediately familiar shock of having my copy, albeit an early version, I delved further to check how well the conversion had been achieved.

Compared to Dandy, this is whole orders of magnitude better, there is no comparison. The 512 levels of this game (and they are all good levels) in one load, are so much better than the Dandy 15 levels in three loads. With Gauntlet on the shelves, I can't imagine anyone wanting to buy any of the clones.

Simply an amazing role playing maze game.
Amstrad Action (Jan, 1987)
It's best with two players: the element of co-operation rally brings the game alive. As a one-player game it's pretty nifty too, although it's much tougher. The graphics are small but perfectly formed, and with so many different levels you'll never get tired of them.
Now that the real thing is here the imitators begin to look a bit weedy. There's really only room for one Gauntlet - and this is THE business. Accept no alternatives and shop at the sign of the chainmailed fist. You won't be disappointed.
Action-Spiele gibt es viele, aber die wenigsten sind so gut wie die sorgfältige Umsetzung des Gauntlet-Automaten. Man kann dem Programm zwar ankreiden, daß es fast etwas zu leicht ist, aber ich finde es ganz angenehm, mal ein weniger schweres Spiel in die Finger zu bekommen.

Plus jouable et plus belle que la version Atari 800, la version CPC de Gauntlet doit hélas composer avec son lot de ralentissements – mais reste très agréable à jouer, à un ou deux joueurs.
Make no mistake, if you want to play Gauntlet, no frills, on your home computer this Christmas (and although we've only seen the CPC version, there is no reason why the others shouldn't be of a similar standard) - US Gold has delivered the goods.
