Back of Cassette Case (KIXX) - Spectrum (DE-FR-IT-UK):
    GAUNTLET™ ... the arcade sensation. You will enter a world full of monsters and mazes, follow the paths of mystery and combat searching for the food which allows you to increase your health. Monsters and legions of enemies will bar your way. They are not your only adversaries however, in this search for food, treasure and magic potions — the other players are also searching for the same good bounty.

    Can you handle the excitement of the hottest arcade megahits?

    Then cut out these name plates, mount 'em on your monitors and boot up Gauntlet and Paperboy from Mindscape. That's all you need for absolutely outrageous arcade action, right at home.

    You'll get real arcade graphics. Real arcade feel. Real arcade excitement. After all, these are based on the real arcade classics. So get set, get psyched for the arcade to hit home. Just pick up new Gauntlet and Paperboy. That is, if you think you can cut it.

    Mindscape takes the arcade home.
