In the course of this button-bashing dungeon crawl, you'll destroy countless demons, ghosts, sorcerers, and joysticks.

Data Disk

The monochrome and color versions shipped together on independently functioning 800K disks—"GAUNTLET" and "Gauntlet (Color)"—with identical copies of the sound and level data.

Creator Code

The Gauntlet application's four-letter signature is IRON.
