Green elf needs food badly! There were always groups of people hovering around this machine at the arcade, and for good reason. Playing this with 4 players at the arcade was a blast. Sometimes your teammates would be dicks and purposely open walls to let a horde attack you. Then you'd retaliate by shooting the treasure or food as they were about to claim it. Fun times!

Great with chums and you'll need all their help to pull that black tengen cart out of the NES.

It loses something without the arcade experience, but still a decent port.

Gauntlet was fun in a way. It was a neat dungeon-delver, but it always felt too much like a race against the clock- because it was. Your health was always going down, and essentially it was always a matter of how far could you get before you died. So... there's not that satisfaction of completion.

strangely like pac-man lol nonstop waves of enemies but you gotta find a key and then the exit while shooting projectiles. Gauntlet II is better, 10, less waves until 3rd level. but easier to kill and get around. i'm starting to kinda wanna play a modern game like this style thats actually good and more of an rpg

I have to subtract a point for how visually hideous it is for a game released this late into the NES's lifespan, though it is kind of amusing to play in brainless, arcade-y bursts.

Rogue, with almost-up-to-date graphics (well, not quite), in real time (as such, this was an evolutionary link between oldschool roguelikes and what would become the ARPG genre), and with a multiplayer option to boot. Was it fun? Eh. We played it because it existed. The monotony of it never really lured you to replay after reaching a certain number of levels.
