Gauntlet 2014

Post by Incito » September 23rd, 2014, 10:06 pm

The new Gauntlet came out today and does right by sticking to its roots.
I have to say I have been playing it most of the day! My favorite character is Valkyrie. The shield is a HUGE plus to have.
You can only play this on PC via steam right now, but it is controller compatible. I am incito on Steam, so invite me if you have the game.

Check it out at http://www.gauntlet.com/

Got it mate, just got to sort my gamepad out and we can arrange a hook up... I will say though, while it is very playable, it feels more like Diablo than Gauntlet...

There is some truth to that for sure. In later stages the hordes get bigger, then there is death who comes for you a lot. Let's not forget the turkey! :wink:

I can see that is was a challenge to release a "reboot" of this games without grabbing ideas from other dungeon crawlers. There are similar ideas, but I think they did pretty good making an updated version without changing the formula too much. Also, you can bet the price will go down an 6 months on Steam.

I am just happy that they did not make it a "level up" type of thing. The original did not have this. You can buy items, but really it's about team work and skill since your can't level up an get stronger.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's an excellent remake... I suppose in this day and age it would have been difficult to avoid that kind of look and feel...
