Discovered recently that Gauntlet 4 for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive has an awesome soundtrack. I’d been randomly exploring some X68k music using MDX Player for iOS and happened to check Gauntlet out.

The game features a 4 player port of the original and some new modes like an RPG Quest Mode. Some more details:

Couple of decent YouTube links below.

There’s a good time stamped one with just the soundtrack. Things kick off properly at the 02:22 mark with the Back of Beyond track:

Next, there’s a video of a playthrough of the quest mode if you want to see the game in action and music in context. Obviously, the person playing knows what they’re doing and makes it look easy 🙂
