The Retroist

Retroist Gauntlet Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Gauntlet Podcast. On today’s show I talk about the 1985 arcade classic, Gauntlet. I start off talking about how this game helped me save face when I had some misgivings about seeing the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 in the theater. Then I talk about the development of the game and its predecessor, Dandy. I also delve into the game’s strategy, game play, reception, sequels, ports and much more. My sincere apologies to Thyra the Valkyrie whose name I repeatedly fail to mention.
