    Does anyone know where I can download this? Searched Google but couldn't find any. Any kind of help is appreciated. :)

    The first ever Gauntlet. I think it was called Gauntlet: Legend.
    Should work on PC. :)

    I don't think Gauntlet: Legend was the 1st one. Also not sure there was a PC version .. was on many consoles though (ie. ps, dreamcast and N64).

    -edit- ps you've never played Gauntlet unless you've played it on the arcade :cool:

    ^ I think that's just the Emulator. It doesn't have games in it. :confused:

    What one are you looking for? The original arcade game from the 80s? If that's the one get mame as your emulator and you may have to search around for the rom. It was tons better than the nes version. I just googled it by the way and the first web site that came up had it.

    I agree later version were far better then early versions of the game and arcade is better then console versions. So have a look for MAME and an arcade ROM if thats legal. :)

    Downloading ROMs is legal in the U.S., provided the manufacturer is not capable of providing the game new on its original medium.

    With that said:
    MAME
    And Yahoo Groups is probably the best place to find the ROM.

    No offense but NES version is probably not the way you want to be introduced to the game. :p

    Oh well, I'm not really going to play it. I was looking for it because my science teacher wanted it. :D
