Gauntlet IV (Gauntlet in Japan) brings the arcade smash-hit Gauntlet to the Sega Genesis for the first time. This is no mere port, however: in addition to a faithful port the arcade original it features several new modes including the all-new Quest Mode, which adds RPG features to the traditional Gauntlet formula as players battle their way through 40 new floors of monsters and treasures in search of the Castle of Succession's secret.
Arcade Mode is identical to the original Gauntlet, so refer to the Gauntlet guide for information regarding that mode. Gauntlet IV also features Record Mode, which is an altered form of Arcade Mode wherein players strive to achieve high scores, and Battle Mode, a competitive free-for-all.
