Gauntlet is a Dungeons & Dragons simulator of sorts. You choose a class of Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard or Elf to navigate the Gauntlet, collect treasure, slay wicked monsters, and save your beloved peasant hometown.
Walkthroughs for this game estimate a completion time of several hours when playing normally. Here, we see the game completed in only 12 minutes! Usually clues have to be collected to discover the password to the last dungeon, but this is selected at the game's beginning, so the clues are unnecessary in a TAS. There is also some collision detection abuse and lots of luck manipulation.
This version takes a better path, manipulates fights more, and abuses luck to get the password with shortest input time.

Downloadable encodes include the author's commentary as soft subtitles.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
