Introduction
------------
Welcome brave hero!  Chose one of four character classes, then run the
gauntlet of evil that has infested the five kingdoms of this universe.
Scour these worlds for glory, treasure and magic!  Retrieve the mystical
Legends of Gauntlet; ultimate weapons whose power, when harnessed, will
destroy the vile forces that have overrun this once peaceful land.
 
Up to four brave individuals can travel through more than 30 levels, face
hordes of monsters, search for treasure, avoide traps, pick up and use
magic, encounter fantastic level bosses and try to escape with their
lives!  Each level holds hidden secrets and power-ups.  Each player
gains valuable experience points which cause characters to gain levels
and increase their power!
 
You are one of the heroes who have been summoned forth by the benevolent
Wizard Sumner to rid the four worlds of Gauntlet fo the evil demon Skorne
and his minions.  Skorne was unleashed from the bowels of the Underworld
by Sumner's vile brother, Garm, who is now missing and presumed dead.
 
You begin your quest in "Sumner's Tower" and must travel through each
world.  Within each world, you must find the special Obelisks you'll use
to free Sumner's power.  Skorne stole Sumner's power and locked it within
these obelisks.  On your quest, you must find the 4 shards of glass needed
to rebuild the magical stained glass window in Sumner's tower.
 
When all four pieces are found, you'll gain access to the Desecrated
Temple.  Within each world lies the ancient Rune Stones.  Collect keys
and open treasure chests to recieve power-ups and magic potions.  Collect
all 13 Rune Stones to open the gateway to the Underworld, where you can
face and defeat the demon Skorne and banish him once and for all!
 
----------
Characters
----------
*Koric the Warrior*
Healthy with great strength, the Warrior is a good chioce for first-time
players.  He is durable, able to dish out punishment and can hold his own
in hand-to-hand combat.  One of those big muscle guys that loves to leave
a trail of blood behind him.  But he is only good at fighting one-on-one
so not really great with spells and stuff.
 
*Freya the Valkyrie*
Beautiful but deadly, the Valkyrie's best attribute is her durability.
Having both a high armour class and good health, the Valkyrie is another
good choice for a beginner.  The only reason I would pick her is so I can
look at the babe kill hundreds of enmies while still remaining very
attractive.  An all-round character.
 
*Siris the Wizard*
The ability to use magic better than others is the Wizard's best
strength.  With a magic rating higher that other characters, his magic
attacks have a much stronger effect.  However, the Wizard is not good at
hand-to-hand combat.  This is the character I chose because magicians
are always seen saving the heroes butt (eg Connan).  So now I can walk
through the levels, shooting heaps of bolts of lighting and creating the
greatest destruction a potion could make.
 
*Aeowyn the Archer*
Similar to the Wizard, the Archer's greatest strength lies in her speed.
The Archer is the fastest of the characters, a formidable foe for any
enemy.  The Archer is not good at hand-to-hand combat and has a weaker
armour class compared to the Warrior and Valkyrie.  She is also one of the
worst characters.  She is only good when the Warrior is with her stopping
all the enemies getting to her.
 
*Sumner*
The good wizard is your guide through the worlds of Gauntlet.  He enlists
the aid of the 4 legendary heroes to help him vanquish the evil demon
Skorne.  An aged man who is very strong in magic, Sumner is a powerful
ally to the forces of good.  So if he is so powerful, then how come Skorne
took over his tower.  Something aint right there.  Anyway, chosing
this guy (after unlocking him) doesnt do anything except change his
appearence.
 
*Skorne*
Released from the Underworld when Garm combined the 13 Rune Stones, Skorne
escaped and quickly took control over the worlds of Gauntlet.  Skorne is
evil incarnate and is easily the most powerful enemy of the game.  With
his armies of evil before him, Skorne seeks to destroy all that is
good...unless you can stop him!  Well I dont mean to be crude, but
have you seen that picture on the front cover of the manual.  It looks
like some big orange thing is stuck up his arse.  Now we all know why
he is so angry.

4. Staratergies
***************
 
--------------------
1 Player Stratergies
--------------------
Go slowly.  Unlike the arcade mode, your health doesn't decrease.  Take
each section slowly making sure you have checked it thoroughly for all
secret sections and buttons.  Also don't forget to look for all keys and
not destroy the magic.
 
Kill the most deadly warriors.  If you are being attacked my a bomber or
archer, then kill them first.  They will end up doing heaps of damage if
they are left alive.  Also when you hear a suicide guy scream, be on
guard.  Get ready to shoot him as soo as you see him or he will cause over
100 damage.  And finally, never ever let death touch you.  If he starts
following you, run into a bunch of monsters and use your magic then.
 
Shoot those generators.  If there is a pile of monsters on your left, and
a clear path to a generator on your right, shoot the generator.  There 
is no reason to let the generator make any monsters because you will have to
kill them all or even be killed yourself.  Also line up those turbo
attacks to kill a row of generators.
 
Dont shoot those generators.  Well I hate arguing with myself but
sometimes, there are heaps of monsters coming for you, but you are so
strong that they will neve reach you.  So just stand there and rack up
those experiece points.  After a while, no more monsters will come from
that generator so then you can kill it, but you would have probably
gone up one level.
 
Use turbo attacks.  You have an unlimited number of these so use them at
will.  Wait untill it is at its maximum because that is the best effect.
Also, if there are any monsters that you can see behing a door, shoot a
turbo attack down there, it will probably kill all of them and even the
generator.
 
-------------------------
2 to 4 Player Stratergies
-------------------------
All these stratergies are the same as one player but there is an extra
advantage.  There are sometime bridges that only appear when you are on
the button.  One person stands on the button while the other goes on the
bridge.  The one on the button can then get off the button and join his
friend on the bridge to continue their journey.  But with one player, he
can sometimes use Extra Speed and turbo to get on the bridge before it
dissapears.
 
----------------
Boss Stratergies
----------------
After juming in the portal, turn all these inventory objects on.  Any
weapon upgrade, Rapid Fire, Phoneix, 5 Way Shot, Reflective Shot, and
Reflective Shield.  And always have the Legend Weapons because these help
kill the monster in a great way.

Powerups
--------
Thunder Hammer  - The Thunder Hammer is a weapon that has been left by the
                  god Thor.  This hammer causes serious damage by killing
                  every monster in sight.  Comes with little ammo.
Shrink Enemies  - Shrink Enemies makes all the enemies some what smaller
                  that you.
Player Growth   - Player Growth make you some what bigger then everyone.
                  No one can pick on the big, tough guy.
Phoenix         - One if the best, this lets the legendary bird fight
                  alongside you.  The Phoenix spits huge balles of fire.  A
                  great ally.
Invisibility    - Gives you invisibility.  That means no one can see you
                  and you can make some serious havoc.
Timestop        - Freezes all enemies so they cant move.  Check out the
                  codes section to really abuse this power.
Super Shot      - Gives you a number of shots that act like a full level
                  turbo attack.
Acid Breath     - Gives you acid breath.  Did you eat garlic.
Electric Breath - Gives you electric breath.  Or was it beans.
Fire Breath     - Gives you fire breath.  Or was it brussel sprouts.
Light Amulet    - Makes you weapon more powerful.
Acid Amulet     - Makes you weapon more powerful.
Electric Amulet - Makes you weapon more powerful.
Fire Amulet     - Makes you weapon more powerful.

                  protects you.
Fire Shield     - Pust a wall of fire just in front of you and makes you
                  run very fast.  Great for killing lined up enemies.
Reflect Shield  - Makes you white, and any damage delt to you is delt to
                  the person who delt it.
Reflect Shot    - All you shoits bounce off walls.
Rapid Fire      - Makes you shoot a little faster then normal.
Levitate        - I'm not exactly sure how this works (Send in if you know).
Speed Burst     - Makes you move a lot faster.  Great for using those
                  invisable bridge switches when in single player mode.
5 Way Shot      - Makes you shoot 5 shots instead of one.  Great for
                  killing bosses.
3 Way Shot      - Makes you shoot 3 shots instead of one.  Good for
                  killing bosses.

Barbarian Kingdom - but is now under the cloud of Skorne's dark magic.  An
ancient Dragon resides in these coves; a dragon that guards one of the
glass shards necessary to access Skorne's Earthly Citadel through the
window in Sumner's Tower.

Level Walkthroughs
------------------
 
*NOTE*
I currently have a level 80 Wizard and all the levels are harder now.  So
this means that where I say there are 4 generators here, there may only
be 2 generatos there for you because you have a level 5 something.  So
dont worry so much if you cant find all of the 24 generators in the first
stage because there are probably only 10 there for you.
 
Mountain World

*Valley*
 
Arrow/Bomb Guys   : 4
Deaths            : 0

Suicide Guys      : 3
Treasure Chests   : 8
 
Start off by killing the generator above you and the two down in the
bottom left corner.  Get all treasure chests, keys, and gold and then
go next to the bridge.  Kill the arrow shooter and collect the key behind
him.  Do not unlock the door with the steps behind it except cross the
bridge and kill the 3 generators.  Step on the button near the bridge to
raise the the obelisks and activate it.  Then continue up those steps and
kill the generator there.  Follow the path and destroy the generator.  Do
not do down the sept eexcept go up the steps where lots of monsters will
be waiting and also a suicide guy.  Destroy 4 generators here and then
unlock the door and continue up.  Collect the treasure chest here then
send a turbo attack to the left because there are heaps of monsters
there.  Once the 4 generators have been destroyed go throught the locked
door up some more steps.  Destry the four generators and collect all the
treasure.  Dont forget there is an arrow guy here.  Stand on the switch
that is under the barrel to pass.  Up the stairs, there is a suicide guy,
an arrow guy, and 4 generators.  Go up stairs to get the last generator
and the exit is to the left.

Suicide Guys      : 3
Treasure Chests   : 16
 
Imediately, kill the two generators you can see and the other one to the
right.  Dont forget the treasure chest because it has a Invunrability in
it.  Go up the left side and destroy the 3 generators and arrow dude.  Dont
forget the hidden switch under the pile of dirt.  Go up the hill to
destroy 2 generators, collect a chest, and continue up the hill to
destroy an arrow guy and a generator.  Continue along the path to destroy
the 2 generators.  Where the patch divides, take the lower route.  Take
out the generator and go down a little collecting a tresure chest and
another generator.  There are also 2 rrow guys along here.  Go up the big
hill and there will be heaps of monsters coming from 4 generators.  Watch
out for the suicide guy.  Remember this spot because you can get a
levitation from here, but for now, go up the uppermost hill and send a
turbo attack down there, it will take out4 generators and any
monsters.  Collect the treasure at the end before going up.  After going
up the steep hill you will encounter 2 generators, a suicide guy, and an
arrow guy and a death in the chest.  After going now you will meet another
arrow guy along with 2 generators.  If you want some experience, go down
to meet a bomb guy and another generator, but this trip is useless.  Go
up where there will be 4 generators and a Golem.  Just keep shooting him
from a distance and try to get him stuck because then you can hit him and
he cant hit you.  Follow the lower path and kill the generator there, when
the pats starts so go up, shoot the lighter coloured wall to recieve the
first rune stone.  Continue along to kill another 2 generators and open 2
chests.  Collect the gold and step on the hidden button to release the
levitation.  Dont open the door because you should waste keys on better
things.  Instead, go back to where the Golem was and go up.  Destroy the
2 bombers, suicide guy and 2 generators and then go along the higher
path.  Up there there will be 4 chests and an exit.  But first go back
to where I told you to remember and there would be a new cave with a
levitation in it.

Well start off by putting on the powerups that I mention in my boss
stratergies.  He only has four different attacks and most can be stopped
by standing behind the rocks.  If you have the Ice Axe, he will be frozen
for a while at the start.  Use this time to make some serious havoc on
him and try to get him down half way.  When he shoots a fireball, just
move out the way.  When he breaths fire, run back to the edge of the
mountain.  If he blows the wind, or shoots two fireballs on either side
of you, then you have no option but to get hit, but this doesn't do hardly
any damage anyway.  Just continue to shoot at him untill he dies and gives
you a piece of the window.
