Blue Warrior is about to die!
The Warrior, Valkyrie, Elf, and Wizard enter a dungeon with several hundred levels. Monster generators churn out wave after wave of enemies, destroy them to clear the level, and then find the exit.

In addition to the new "class" system, new level designs were added, including the possibility of encountering them in altered ways by having the play-field turned in steps of 90°. Other notable additions include the ability to ricochet shots off walls by means of a special pick-up, acid puddles that caused large, predetermined amounts of damage and a large dragon which would occupy multiple squares and require multiple hits to destroy.
How to Play
The gameplay is very similar to the original Gauntlet, a top down dungeon crawl supporting up to four players. The biggest difference from the original game is that players can choose identical classes, instead of being limited to a particular one for each joystick; each player is differentiated by color. Thus, instead of having a "warrior", "wizard", and "valkyrie" (for instance), in Gauntlet II there could be a "red wizard", a "blue elf" and a "green warrior".
