WELCOME in my walkthrough for this game. Gauntlet Legend is a great action game
for the Dreamcast. it's a game for 1 to 4 players.
In this walkthrough you 'll find informations about the game, secrets i have
find and that no one knows. I want also to say that Gauntlet
(the ancestor) was one of my favorite games in years past because it was less
expensive to play with it and the game was incredibly long
and difficult (100 levels if i remember correctly). So refind all this world in
3D like world is a great emotion for me.
I would like to say more but it's time to learn all what i know about this one.

i add some stats and correct some faults for the 2.1 version. Also new credits
appears.
I also change strange code in special code, it's less weird after all.
For the 2.2 version, i had again some stats. I need the stats of the three last
main character of this game to close the contest.

Here is the program of the next three days you need to complete this game :

1 REVIEW :

When i see it in Arcade i was surprised. Atari make the impossible. Another
editor can create a dungeon and dragons world in 3D and it's
an action game. The story is really simple. Garm wants to overcome his brother
,Summer, supremacy and wants to rule the tower. He summons a
demon, Skorn to help him but made a little mistake. The demon escapes and rise
a super army to destroy Summer and take the control of
the world of Gauntlet. We learn what happened to Garm at the end of the game.
Even if Gauntlet has the story of a classical action game
(there is a crazy one who think he can conquer the world) the research in the
game and the adventure are really various.
Also i'll hurt a lot of people but if you want to play with the best Gauntlet
Legend on Dreamcast you must buy the European version of
the game. Why ? i buy the Gauntlet in "US" and it's optimized for a cinch.
Usually i like the cinch more than the RGB, but the american
cinch is not the same as japanese cinch (i'm quite afraid for Eternal Arkadia).
The color are funny, i search the high resolution but i
found only a more colored version of the N64 one. In the european version it's
totally different. The RGB bring the high resolution.
Graphics and especially magic effects are better here and  more thin. There's
absolutely NO pixel on the character. All is perfect. You
are free to not believe me but i know what i see. I must admit that some time i
found the game a little slower than the US one but it's not sure.
Well in term of presentation Gauntlet has some videos but they are short, too
short to be appreciate. I don't know why the end was cut,
or it's probably because of the Gauntlet Dark Legacy. It's too bad. I have
nothing against a second strike, even if it's on Play 2, but
it's not a reason to cut an end like that. The worst is that it's clear and
there's no TO BE CONTINUED... .
Graphically in RGB the game is wonderful, especially in yellow world and in the
orange one. The color are numerous and the ennemies very
various. The magic effect even if they are more thin, are not equal. The fire
and the light are the best. The boss in the game are impressive and they require
a special technique.
The animation is excellent in a 4 players game and in a one player mode it
depends on the character. Anyway you can increase the speed of
your hero and the difference is real. The boss are not so mobile but in fact
it's better like that. The only problem is to find three friends to play with
you.
The sound is incredible. The music are excellent with a special atmosphear in
each world. There is one music per stage and there's 26
stages so imagine a game that use the atmosphear of Dungeon and dragon (SAT),
Exhumed (SAT/PLAY) and even a techno atmosphear. Too bad
there's no sound test. The voice in the US version are the same as the Arcade,
but (another great advantage) in the european version  the
voice take the nationality of my Dreamcast. And in French it's completely
different. The translation of the voice are funny and
however it is best than the US voice. You must hear it and speak french to
understand this fact but it's true.
The maniability is perfect, the character strike rapidly, the battle is fun and
not so difficult, when you play a multiplayers game the
ennemies double or triple some time. You can choose the difficulty (easy to
hard). I appreciate the RPG phase when in a shop you must
choose what to increase (force, armor, speed and magic). The animal that can
help you is also a nice feature of this game.
Yes you have buy one of the best action game in the world. The game is full of
items to search, false wall, super weapon, combos and
multiplayers combos and even you can play basket ball in one of the stage, so
what are you waiting, buy this game and enter the legend.

2 MY CHARACTER :

Well you must know that the game is cool with all character, you'll have an
adaptation time due to the skill of each one but it' just
a question of time.
I choose the Green Warrior due to his style and his force. The maximum capacity
are

                            STR : 999
                            ARM : 600
                          SPEED : 700
                          MAGIC : 500

In terms of HP at level 65 ( my final level) i had 7300 if i remember correctly.
It's sufficient to end up the game in easy.  The level
are here to increase your HP but not really for your Stat because you can buy
the skill in a shop.
The warrior is excellent for a melee and have a correct magic effect range when
he his overcome by the situation.

I play the game with a magician but it's more difficult because he has less
power but a better magic.
The valkyrie is speed but have less power than the warrior. Anyway the game is
fun especially when she growth.
The archer is excellent in long range and top speed but not in close combat. I
don't play a complete adventure with him but with the
warrior i have 90% of melee. I use his shot only for the boss, so people who
plays a single player with an archer have my respect because
their skill are different from mine.
I haven't play  with the Jester because i don't like this fantasy but someone
says it has an explosive personna (if you surf on gamefaqs
you know who he is) and i think he is right because all he says about the other
was true.
Personnaly it wasn't in my attention to make a profil of other character than
mine, so if you find it light refer to the other faq.
HOWEVER if you have increase to the max your character's skill e mail me so i
can add it in my walkthrough. I'm more interested by a
comparison of each one when they have the power of a god. The contest is open.

3 BOSS :

The monsters are too numerous to be describe (or so i think) but for the boss
it's different.

GREAT DRAGON : this giant beast can be kill by using the ICE AXE OF UNTAR. Stay
far away from him, shoot and avoid his fireball.

CHIMAERA : (i give this name because it has a better style, CHIMERA is the exact
one) With the SCIMITAR OF DECAPITATION you cut the
head that spit fireball. It's the more powerful. Again shoot but don't move if
you have enough HP.

DJINN : He fears THE MAGIC LAMP but he stays most difficult boss of the game.

ARACHNA QUEEN : There's no word to describe how ridiculous she is. Use the TOXIC
BELOWS on her.

SKORN : Use the Soul Savior. In the first fight you can it him with the magic.
No need to move, shoot only.
In the second fight he don't fear magic so simply shoot and have 6000 points
minimum.


4 Multiplayers tips :


In a single player mode play the Valley of Fire to heal yourself. It gives 450
to 500 points per session. At the end of the game the monsters can't hurt you.
In a two or more player mode, read your manual to abuse of the Combo attack. You
must learn also the turbo attack.
If you play with someone who has a great character, all the other player can
load the same so you will be all invincible. Of course it
creates a little confusion but it's a good way to explore the game. I can't
imagine four players replay again and again valley of fire before a boss fight.
When you choose different character, choose the complementary and not a Dopple
ganger like Dwarf and Warrior. If you work like a team you can count on your friend(s).


5 Secrets :

I doubt there is more in the game but it's not impossible.
There is one bonus stage the MAUSOLEUM, which is easy to find (read the walkthrough).
There are five bonus level yes five and not four like the other one said where
you can collect gold and coins. The game is logical and
when you find one in a stage the other is in the symetrical stage except for MAUSOLEUM.
There are five weapons for five boss. But it makes a cross, IE : in red world
you find the weapon for blue boss and in blue world you find weapon for the red boss. Except for the Soul Savior.
The alter egos are in the game but only for four characters. I don't see the
interest of their presence because they have just a diferent appearence.
You can play Basket ball with your potion in Stage 5.3.1 fortress 1. There's the
atmosphear. I don't know if it gives a secret, because throwing potion is
difficult (A + X)
There are 9 obelisks and 13 Rune stones.

The only way i see to have a different end is to increase the character to the
max in hard mode and with the maximum level (if there's
one). Then kill again Skorn but there's absolutely nothing sure. It's not
important after all.

Here is a special code : when you have completed the game save and select a new
game.
Choose the character you want and then you will see the character you choose
with his best weapon
(a golden one). UNFORTUNATELY THE WEAPON DISAPEARED WHEN YOU ENTERED A STAGE.


6 WALKTHROUGH :

Well enough talk, let's finish it. Euh, if i say "follow the way" sometime it's
because ,there's nothing else to do. This game is more an
action game than a RPG and it's up to you to explore at 100% an area. Imagine my
walkthrough if i must describe all the possible way...

HOW TO SAVE : In the sumner tower press start and select the menu CHARACTER
GESTION to save and load.


RED WORLD : MOUNTAIN :

VALLEY OF FIRE : To obtain your first Rune stone, pass the bridge at the
beginning of the stage. Climb the stair and break the door. Use
the switch and go down near the bridge to collect it. If you follow the way
(it begin) you will see the first obelisk. Use the switch
near to open the jail and illuminate the thing. Then you can find a Familiar
near the end of this stage. Last exit.

DAGGER PEAK : You will encounter a great golem here. Kill him and look carefully
in your screen. Search a gray rock and break it.
Activate the switch and you will reach the second obelisk. There's nothing else
here and no secret wall, so follow the way to the exit.

CLIFF : At the beginning of the stage go south and activate the switch. it will
open a new road with the second rune stone. Visit all
this part then take the road of the stone. Then you will be block by a barrier
and you see a chest. Open it if you can and then search a
suspicious looking green wall near. It hides a switch and it opens the barrier.
If you go straight the way to the exit fall so go down
and use the switch. Then go south and search a yellow wall to activate a switch.
then you can go to the exit.

LOST CAVE : Go right and you will find a third obelisk. Break the gray rock,
kill the monster in this path. at the entrance you see a
small gray rock, break it to use a switch and reach the obelisk. You can find
the SCIMITAR here. SEARCH a switch that exchange two
plateforms, follow the new way provided and search a dead end with the sword and
the thunder shield. Then you can exit of here.

VOLCANIC CAVERN : At the beginning of the stage, near a barrel, break a
suspicious wall to desactivate the force field around the third
rune stone. After you kill a golem you find a switch and you can take the rune.
Then after a short battle you'll reach a giant clock. Use
it to discover new path. Find the exit but don't take it. Search a breakable
wall and activate the switch. Now use the plateform near the
exit, it goes down and you see a wooden door, the bonus level 1. Then you can
exit.

DRAGON'S LAIR : You need a level 16 if you want to fight him now, without the
axe. Stay far and shoot. You can use the rock to protect
but it won't be a good shield each time. When the dragon strike the ground, run
and you will not fall.


BLUE WORLD : VALKYRIE CASTLE :

POISONNED FIELD : A bridge leads yu to a switch which activate the mill. Then
the water goes up and you can take a new way. When you are
block by a door, search the blue wall on the left of the hero to use a switch.
There is another blue wall you must break. Just after a
blue circle on the ground go to the left of the hero to activate the switch that
give the Rune stone.
Later a gray rock hide a switch which allows you to lower a bridge. Just after
that bridge, destroy the gray rock to activate the swicth
which open the way to the obelisk but avoid the death. Then you can exit.

CASTLE YARD : Destroy evrything here and look at the gate, it closes. Take the
bridge and follow the way. You cannot miss the obelisk, i
add it's impossible. Then you will arrive near a short serie of teleport warp.
Then you must find three switchs (two are easy behind a false
wall near the stair) and then you can reach the third protected by a beast arm.
Last after another wooden path you will reach the exit.

ARSENAL OF THE CASTLE : Here the monsters are weak, or my fighter is really
strong. The first trap is a ground that appears with a
switch. Search around to find a path. Then climb the stair. You arrive in a room
with a cauldron. Use the other stair and go left to find
an elevator. Use all of them to reach a switch. Then go down to the room with
the cauldron and search another switch. Then a wall
disappear and you can find the fifth rune stone. Then you will explore the stage
until you find a stair with the death. Go right of this
stair and break a wall. Enter the room and destroy the false wall on the left.
Use the switch. Now you can use the stair with the death
and reach the end of the stage. Hep not so fast. Under the stair is a thunder
hammer and the wooden door of Bonus level 2. Then climb this final stair and
exit.

TREASURE OF THE CASTLE : This stage is fairly simple. Follow the way and use all
switch. At the end of the stage you will discover the
sixth rune stone. South of the exit is the obelisk and left of the obelisk is
the entrance to the Mausoleum behind a false wall.

MAUSOLEUM : The secret is to use all the switch, especially at the end of the
stage. when you can't use a switch, continue the way and
search other switch. Later you will come to it automaticaly and use it. The last
switch is under the left foot of a statue. Then you can
exit. After that complete the Treasure of the castle and exit.

TOWER OF TORMENT : Follow the ways by using wooden bridge. You will notice an
inaccessible switch. Locate the exit. Down of the last
stair is a false wall. Break it and activate the switch. A plateform will go up,
full of rat. activate the inaccessible switch to go up
with a plateform. Destroy the wall on your left and activate the new switch. The
ICE AXE will appear. when you take it, the acid
will cover all the level. Use the plateform to reach rapidly the exit. You will
lose 15 to 20 HP. Then you can exit.

DUNGEON OF CHIMERA : Use the Scimitar to cut the fire head, then don't move and
cut the other head by shooting.

YELLOW WORLD : DESERT :

RUIN OF THE CITY : Follow the way and kill everyone. The obelisk is on the road
and again you can't miss it. When you are blocked after
activate a switch, wait a little and by miracle a stair will appear from
nowhere. If you see monster it's that you are on the good way.
RUNE STONE 7 : you see one switchs and another one behind a false wall. Activate
this one first. Then the other. Then you will see a
third. Pass the door. Destroy the rock immediatly on the left. Then collect the
stone. Now exit.

MAGIC SHRINE : This stage is simple. First break the ground by using the switch,
then go down the new path, open the barrier to arrive
near the rune stone.To obtain the rune stone here, activate the first pillar by
walking on it. Then search in the
waterfall a switch for the second pillar. Walk on the pillar and take the stone.
Then continue to serach a switch to open the access to
the path under you, explore that pass and you arrive on the other side of the
great fissure. Go up to use a switch then down in the path
it opens and after playing with mountain(up and down when you walk on it) exit.

MYSTICAL PYRAMID : In this level you need again to play with the switch. Search
all the secret wall. You will eventually encounter a
switch that rise a plateform and lower it. Go down with the plateform, you will
reach a false wall. Then after 2 switchs you must take
the path that leads you south. A weird switch rotate a wall, run in the wall
during the rotation to reach the good path. The obelisk is
near a switch which can make appears and disappears a bridge. When you will see
a break bridge on your way, walk on the left (it's not so
evident to see). Just near the end is the wooden door to bonus level 3. Last you
can exit.


TOMB OF THE UNDEAD : With the anti death power, kill the death. Then use a
switch, pass the barrier.Then you'll play with other switch
and a plateform will go up. Take the plateform and use the switch. It opens the
path to the obelisk. Then you will open a path to a pool
with pic inside. The switch is behind you and not in this path. Climb upstairs
and activate another switch. Then go down to the path i
mention and take plateform which goes up. Befor you pass a closed door use the
other way and kill everyone until you use a switch. It
adds a bridge on your way. Then pass the door and use the new way. Activate 2
switch go down and between two walls you will find the
TOXIC BELLOWS. Go right and serach a false wall to find Rune stone 9. Then take
the good path and search a switch that illuminate a
circle on the ground on the left of the golem (you must destroy it). Then the
ground move. 2 more switch will activate a new path and the
final switch is behind a false wall (the one that looks like a monster). The
wall goes up when you are near it. Then you can exit.

GREEN WORLD : ARCHER'S FOREST :

ACID SWAMP : The main way has a lot of sub way. Complete them in order of
appearance. Follow the way until you are completely block. Then
find a stair and play with the switch of the acide swamp. Then the way will be
unlock. Play with the switch again until a stair appears.
Go again in the swamp and destroy the false wall, climb the other stair and
exit.

BENT ROOT : Follow the way.When you will have to choose between 2 elevators go
straight first, activate a switch then come back and use
the left elevator. You will see the rune stone but you cannot take it. To obtain
the next rune stone you must follow the normal way
and use all the switch. There is a swicth hidden in a trunk near the rune stone.
Then on the bridge, take the elevator. Then you will
see some plateforms, use a switch which goes up a trunk full of arachna and go
on it. There is a switch there (false wall), activate it.
Then you will come in the path you know. Go to the rune stone and collect it.
Now go again to the fork of elevator. Go again straight and
then down to a new path. Activate the switch and then go north and exit.

OLD TRENT : Here you will have frequently to make return journey. Keep this in
mind.
The 11th rune stone is far in this stage. She is near a place with switch on
trunk. You will see a lot of trunk with switch. You must use
them all. Then go to the path up and take the stone. Later you will see a wall
of creeper, break it but don't touch the switch now. Use
the switch of the normal way then come back to this one. You will go up. When
you will walk on the trunk the first switch will unlock
bonus level 4. Then go to the normal path and search switch that open the
barrier. Last you will exit.


MUDDY ROOT : The way here is very complicated to explain. so sorry. You must
know that the lamp is not hidden. It awaits you on a
leaf south of a crossroad. The last rune stone of this world is just behind a
big green leaf near the exit. Then you can exit.

BOSS FIGHT :

DJINN SHRINE : Now you can use the lamp to kill him (i was at level 46). Run
when he shots and shot when he search you.

QUEEN ARACHNA : shoot her from a distance. (i was at level 48).

Then search in the tower of Sumner the teleport gate near him.

SKORN'S TEMPLE :
First destroy the generator by following the way. When you must stop, you can
use the switch to see their effect. Switch them on in the
order of appearence. Then you will come in a square room. Then you will meet a
room where the ground fall. Go left and break the wall to
collect the soul savior. Then go right to the exit.


SKORN'S ALTAR : Boss fight. Shoot him and don't move. If you have enough HP he
will die.

ORANGE WORLD : THE BATTLEFIELD :

TRENCH OF BATTLE 1 : Go down in the trench. You must find 2 switch. Then look
for a plateform on the right which leads to a third switch.
Explore the area and go again in new trench. You must find one switch. In the
last part go up by using plateform and switch then go down
by the same way. LAST use another plateform to go up and activate the last
switch. Now you can exit.

TRENCH OF BATTLE 2 : There's absolutely nothing special here, follow the ways
porvided by the switch.

FORTIFIED TOWER 1 : The rule is simple here. Follow the path, activate a switch,
when you are block search a breakable wall. It works perfectly.

FORTIFIED TOWER 2 : The rule is the same, no need to explain, just run as fast
as you can.

FORTRESS 1 : Here you will find the last rune stone at the end of the stage. But
before that you can play basket ball with your
potion, believe me it's ultra hard. For the stone, you will activate a switch
that go up the plateform with stone. Then continue the way
and activate two more switch to lower the plateform of the stone. Ouf. Now you
must exit to the next stage.

FORTRESS 2 : Here is the fifth bonus level. You will find a place in this stage
with 3 iron plates full of tack. Use the way to go
on the other side and break a wall in front of you. There's a switch. Use it and
a path to the bonus level 5 open. Then by playing with
more switch you will exit of here.To open the exit walk on the plateform down
and it will go up and open the mouth.
Believe me there's nothing else to say about this round.

NOW save your game. Heal yourself and collect 2700 gold, 9 potions and 9 key.

HELL :

(i was at level 65 when i win). In hell there's no gold and no secret.
There's no secret wall. The path is ultra clear. It's a
super melee fight with all the strongest creatures of the game. After a long
fight you will arrive in front of a door guarded by a golem,
avoid the golem and use all the switch. THen pass the door and exit. IN THE SHOP
BUY A THREE WAY SHOT AND 2 GROWTH POWER, you can add a reflective shot and a
gold invincibility but you need more gold for this. Note that with a dwarf, only
2500 HP will be lose during the fight.

SKORN'S THRONE : Final boss. It's a question of HP here. Shoot until he dies. If
you failed you will find yourself in the tower of Sumner
with all the experience points and HP you had before this major fight. So try
again and again until you win. I do this two times only.

WELL, the end is cut like i said and i don't know if there's an alternate
ending. It seems not because of Gauntlet Dark Legacy. Thank you
ATARI for this stupid end. I don't understand why Gauntlet Dark Legacy was not
release for the Dreamcast but i think it's really stupid
to cut the story in two on two different machines. If i except that and the
healing technic in valley of fire all was perfect.
There's a last possibility to change the end, play the hell in a four players
mode after you obtain four gods in hard mode and maybe, but there's nothing
official, you will see a true end.
