A truly cooperative game, Gauntlet allowed four players to assume the roles of a Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard, and Elf, in an endless quest for loot and the destruction of monsters. Each level would get progressively harder which only reinforced the need for players to help each other by sharing food, potions and ganging up against the endless horde of bad guys. Fun fact: In 1986 at the Golden Joystick Awards in London, England, Gauntlet won Game of the Year. Also, upon release, one arcade operator in California reported it earned over $15,000 in sixteen weeks! That is 60,000 quarters!
