GAME DETAILS

Gauntlet for Nintendo DS is a revitalized tribute to an all-time classic.

"Gauntlet for the Nintendo DS is a feature rich game that stays true to the retro gameplay of the original arcade coin-op while boasting an updated look, additional attacks and powers, and a new Experience-based combat system. Players will encounter punishing onslaughts of 32 different enemy types, including a cadre of completely original monsters as well as fan favorites such as Skeletons, Thief and even Death. Scattered throughout the maps players acquire amazing pickups to assist on their journey – from Bait that attracts nearby monsters to the Glacier Freeze potion that temporarily freezes the hordes of enemies around them. With local and Wi-Fi support for four-player cooperative play, as well as three ranked competitive multiplayer modes, Gauntlet on the Nintendo DS is a revitalized tribute to an all time classic game.

As of May 20, 2014, the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for Nintendo DSi and Wii systems has been retired. Online features of this game are no longer available after this date but this game still provides an entertaining experience in offline mode.
