Indeed, boss levels excepting Dark Legacy's oddly easy final boss battle are often the hardest levels in the game, even though all you do in them is fight a boss and don't have to deal with a stage as well except for the Skorne fights, which is part of why they are so tough. The C-buttons navigate the inventory, stat display, and special item panels boss-killer weapon and bonus-level crystal that are shown in your character's box in the bottom bar. Yes, this all took quite a while to put together, and then align for the forum. I played the huge stand up arcade machine originally at the Silver Legacy hotel in Reno, and I was hooked. It's not bad, but the later versions are better. Just because Seven Sorrows has nice graphics, while Dark Legacy looks decidedly outdated? I've entered my codeto no availin every machine I've seen since. I wonder if anyone will care other than me.
The Nintendo 64 version is considered to be the best. Gauntlet: Dark Legacy Arcade -- 2000 -For 4 players -Includes most Dark Legacy levels home versions added three more than this has , except the order is different -Includes all Dark Legacy characters except for Sumner. You use the stick move, you press or hold the A button to attack, press B to use magic, Z is the turbo or sprint button, the dpad and C buttons let you scroll through your inventory, and the R button activates any items or weapons in your inventory. The players must find three rune stones on each kingdom in order to defeat Skorne in the Underworld in the arcades only , and of course one from the battle grounds home versions only. The tower contained portals to all the realms for his easy access to them. These side paths usually lead to important items, such as treasure, legendary weapons which are used to weaken bosses , or runestones which are required to progress through the game.
I might add more to this post in the future, including more on the gameplay and levels about the gameplay that is, not just the listing of the next post. Dark Legacy has more items than the original, though are generally more expensive. You hack and slash your way through dungeons and fields and castles and forests and more with your character or with other players in a party of heroes, choosing one of a variety of character types that each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Here the player has to defeat the demon Skorne. You can sell everything you have, no restrictions. Each Realm requires a certain amount of a unique colored crystal in order for the player to access it.
The player defeats True Skorne, banishing him from the eight realms forever. Realm access within that wing still requires crystals, of course. Strong Attack in addition to Weak? In addition, each set of characters has a special power they can use when they use magic potions at a certain level of experience. . Plus, it has four player support and improved graphics with the Expansion Pack.
This is the console version of Gauntlet Legends to own. Move via d-pad or analog. This portal takes the player to Garm's Citadel, where the final battle of the game takes place. I accidentally overwrote my level 99 Warrior with a level 1 Warrior. The player has an option of performing a slow, strong attack, or a quick, weaker attack, as opposed to Legends, where there is only one type of attack.
There are some levels that have a maze-like aspect to them, and are harder to navigate. Apart from the uniqueness factor or if you really want to play Gauntlet on your Dreamcast, there sadly just isn't much reason to play this version. Alternate option to aim your shots with the right stick instead of only being able to fire in the direction you are facing, for true dual-stick firing. And now to the point, a description of the games and their differences. Just the mere thought of playing it nowadays makes me groan. All other home versions allow you to name your characters.
Sadly it never came to be. This portal takes the player to the 9th world, the Desecrated Temple. These games are spectacular multiplayer games designed for 4-player co-op play above all else. Most notably, I somehow managed to forget which levels were actually in the original arcade version of Gauntlet Legends. It is the same level map though, so I count that as a variant, and not a completely different level. The port was released in 2000 for North America and Europe.
N64 Legends plays better, but there's so much more to Dark Legacy. I still haven't done that with any other game to this day haha. The initial arcade version had a contest by which the first 500 players to complete the game and send in the supplied validation code would win a free Gauntlet Legends shirt. There are also different enemy types in each realm. They reused the location for a new stage.
L-N64: Legends, Nintendo 64 version. It is the sixth title in the series, and is an expansion of the previous title in the series,. Gauntlet: Dark Legacy Xbox -- April 2002 -For 4 players -Includes all Dark Legacy core levels -Includes all Dark Legacy core characters -Bonus characters are unlocked by getting enough tokens in treasure rooms. There's lots of power-ups to collect hidden characters to unlock and vistas to enjoy. This demon, Skorne, broke free of Garm's control, crushing him and imprisoning his soul in the underworld. For the life of me, I couldn't beat the final boss in Legends. Collect enough crystals in one realm and you unlock the next; each realm has its own crystal type, you you need to repeat this in each realm.
