A new take on the Gauntlet formula

Auldy
Verified purchase
A very enjoyable update to the Gauntlet style of game. 12 Levels of increasingly abundant enemies to hack and slash your way through and a smattering of puzzle solving to break the pace. Levelling up your character is satisfying and there are plenty of different builds to experiment with. Recommended.
