Gauntlet was a 1985 fantasy hack-and-slash arcade game and one of the first digital dungeon crawls. It has been ported to many console and handheld versions. Players had a choice of four characters: Thor the Warrior, Merlin the Wizard, Thyra the Valkyrie or Questor the Elf.

Judging from the game’s box art (right), ol’ Merlin either transformed into a sexy sorceress or decided to sit this adventure out.
