Summer has been stolen and only one hero can save the day! Danger and adventure await, deep within 'The Scientist's' gauntlet. A 16-bit retro styled tough as nails action platformer, Summer Gauntlet will test your platforming skills to the limit, can you defeat the ultimate trial?
An official Microsoft XBOX controller is recommended for the best gameplay experience although keyboard controls work just fine!
Left Thumbstick= Movement
Press A twice to skip cutscences
Arrow Keys= Movement
Press Z twice to skip cutscences
Should work just fine although button layout may vary.
Attempt to press floating buttons to gain access to new areas of the gauntlet and complete the diamond located in the main chamber. Once the diamond is complete head towards the chamber where you started and see what happens
Summer Gauntlet auto-saves after passing an inactive checkpoint. A floppy disk icon displays whilst your game is saving. NOTE: Playing on hard mode, your lives are recorded in real time so no reloading if you really messed something up!
Summer Gauntlet utilises the XVID codec to decompress video. Windows 7 should have native support for XVID videos (Untested). Previous versions of Windows require the free XVID codec installed in order to view cutscences and can be downloaded for free here:
To enjoy the best possible experience with Summer Gauntlet the default download is the optimal version, utilising parallax scrolling and a higher particle count over the competition version. The competition version has been built for judging purposes so as to comply with the Summer Funtition rules, therefore the visuals have been restricted to one layer only.
A huge thankyou to the talented artists over at:
In particular for their amazing work and contribution!!
I hope you enjoy playing Summer Gauntlet as much as I enjoyed making it. Have FUN and Good Luck!
