Gauntlet is a series of eight action and role-playing games which were released by Atari Games, Tengen, and Midway Games between 1985 and 2005.

  • Gauntlet II (Atari Games, Arcade, 1986): The second title in the series, which was released a year after the original, was again a two- or four-player arcade game by Atari Games, which ran on the same hardware as its predecessor; there would not be another arcade title in the series for 12 years.
  • Gauntlet: The Third Encounter (Epyx/Atari Games, Atari Lynx, 1990): The third title in the series, which was released four years after the second one, was developed up by Epyx for Atari Games, and was a four-player console game that was exclusive to the ill-fated Atari Lynx handheld system.
  • Gauntlet III: The Final Quest (U.S. Gold/Tengen, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, 1990): The fourth title in the series, which was released the same year as the third one, was developed by U.S. Gold for Tengen and was a two-player computer game which was released for three of the most popular 8-bit home computers (along with two of the most popular 16-bit ones) at the time of its production.
  • Gauntlet IV (Tengen, Sega Genesis, 1993): The fifth title in the series, put out three years after the third and fourth ones, was a four-player console game by Tengen that was exclusive to the Sega Genesis system; it was also the last title in the series that was developed and published by Tengen.
  • Gauntlet Legends (Atari Games, Arcade, 1998): The sixth (and third arcade) title in the series, which was put out five years after the fifth one, was a four-player arcade game by Atari Games which ran on their Vegas hardware (an MIPS R5000 running at 200 MHz with an Analog Devices ADSP-2104 running at 16 MHz); it was also the last title in the series that was developed and published by the company that started it 13 years previously.
  • Gauntlet Dark Legacy (Midway Games, Arcade, 1999): The seventh (and fourth arcade) title in the series (which was released one year after that sixth one) was again a four-player arcade game, but by Midway Games; as with its immediate predecessor, it ran on Atari Games' Vegas hardware.
  • Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows (Midway Games, Sony PlayStation 2, Microsoft Xbox and Xbox 360, 2005): The eighth (and final) title for this series, which was put out six years after the seventh one, was again by Midway Games, and was a four-player console game that was released on three of the most popular home consoles of the time it was produced; it was also the series' only title to allow online play, with each player on a different box.
