    None of the sites are live right now.

    Why purchase a domain for a game you don't intend to release?

    Should you care? Well it has a following here as quite a lot of people wanted it, also Retro Gamer (a very good review source IMO) gave it a very positive review of a version of the game which was then going to be improved. It would be nice if it finally got a release after both Eidos & Atari dropped it.

    Footage before any improvements:


    Wouldn't it be excellent if there was other Gauntlet games included this time?

    I want it more times a bajillion!

    But I really hope they do bring it back...I can't live without it (Even though it's not released...)!


    EDIT: I just noticed that the music in the trailer sounds a lot like The Final Countdown. Coincidence? I think NOT!

    Funny that this game has problems getting released, but shovelware flies at us left and right at a ridiculous pace.

    Good to hear there might be a release of this after all though. I played the demo quite a bit back when it was supposed to be released originally.

    That'd be awesome. I remember reading the Retro Gamer review as well and it got me quite interested in this. But I try not to get too excited, since it was said to be released quite a few times.

    Call me when it's on the shelves. I'm fed up of following all this mucking around, it'll be awesome if it does get released but I'm not going to waste any more time playing the will-they-won't-they game.

    Don't think there was another arcade game (maybe Zaxxon) I lost more quarters to growing up, so yeah, I'm still interested in this game.

    I know right! Boggles the mind, doesn't it? Apparently, the quest for dollars has no cents.....err.....sense.

    Would be cool if it did get released, I was waiting for it for quite a long time and then heard it got cancelled, I was sad and angry [​IMG]

    The guy in the trailer has the lamest voice ever btw.

    [preach]Parents buy Hanna Montana for their kids, they wouldn't buy Gauntlet DS. People who actually want it would mostly just pirate it.

    You have yourselves to blame.[/preach]
