Gauntlet could have been improved by including varied background colours and properly defined walls - the mazes are dull in comparison to the lively sprites. PC sound, as always, consists of a few bleeps and warbling effects. However, it seems that Gauntlet is Gauntlet no matter what machine it appears on.

À peine passable, voilà la mention que récolterait aujourd’hui cette version. Ce n’est pas hideux, mais ce n’est pas beau non plus, ce n’est pas injouable, mais ça n’est pas exactement trépidant non plus, bref, ce n’est pas une catastrophe mais c’est parfaitement oubliable.
