For this week’s walk on the Weird Side, instead of taking a look at a Mario game with other characters crowbarred into it, how about a non-Mario game with Mario characters crobarred into that? Mauntlet takes the Gauntlet game we’re all familiar with and inserts Mario, Link, Mega Man, and Bart Simpson (for some reason) into the mix.

The enemies and powerups are replaced with approximations of their Mario Universe equivalents, but since I was never able to beat regular Gauntlet, I don’t know how complete the transformation is.
