    Submission Message
    Hi all,
    This is my submission for Gauntlet arcade version WR, was recorded on sunday 13 August 2016.
    My appologies for the amount of swearing during the attempt,i got very frustrated at times.
    Game settings shown on screen as the game dosent use dips at the beginning and end of my run.
    there's a brief view of the game board as my camera shut off while filming.
    so ive add photos of the game board.
    i look forward to hopefully a sucessful submission.


    thanks for viewing.

    I'm looking forward to adjudicating this. I'm fascinated by this game and find it incredible that people can score that high when the game is so hard and unforgiving.

    Gauntlet Basics

    • You start with 700 health. Hits from monsters deplete from it. Health also ticks away steadily at 1 per second, which generates an urgency to find food items to replenish your health. However, monster hits are far more damaging, and should take priority.


    • Some monsters are scattered throughout the levels, but are mostly created from generators. These generators are your primary concern. You must use a variety of techniques to destroy them without losing too much health.


    • Potions are life-saving smart-bomb weapons. Aside from helping by clearing out rooms of enemies, they are the only way to destroy Death.


    • Melee attacks generally aren't as powerful as point-blank shots, although there are some niche uses for them. For one, melee has a much wider attack range to the sides of your character, making it a far more reasonable method of fighting your way out when surrounded


    • Keep an eye out for the yellow text between levels reading as "Find the Hidden Potion". That means there is an upgrade potion somewhere in the level.


    • If you hear a high pitched musical tone (different than the help message music), a Thief has entered the level from the starting point. Try to get ahead to a choke-point, turn around, and keep firing to destroy him. If the Thief touches you, he will steal one of your upgrade potions.


    • Don't take too many keys. Potions can be cleared out by usage, but keys can only be used up on doors. Two to four keys is good enough in general.


    • Locked doors will open automatically by waiting 16 seconds without taking damage, inflicting damage, or picking something up. It takes 32 if you have any keys in stock. Sometimes this is a good plan, but it can also backfire horribly as the entire level is unleashed upon you.


    • Walls will become Exits if you can stall for 180 seconds. In some instances, this may be a better strategy than trying to clear the level. Note that some scoreboards prohibit this practice.


    • There is a ranking system in place which diminishes the amount of food that appears as you score more and more points. In general, at 300,000 points, most of the food will be gone.

      There are over 20 revisions of Gauntlet Arcade. Most of them have minor differences, bug fixes, or changes to the default level order. They can be divided into 3 groups:

      First releases: These versions do not have the "Exit stall trick". They lack the ranking system.
      Second releases: These versions have the "Exit stall trick". They lack the ranking system.
      Final releases: These versions have the "Exit stall trick", and implement the ranking system.
