I've always wondered about the entry on regarding a mysterious game called 'The Gauntlet' by PSS. I used to own all the PSS games and was baffled by
this entry, but finally I have discovered something that gives closure on it's non-existence!! I wonder if there's an incomplete version still out there? ... oric-game/

Nice finding indeed.
This rises other curiosity questions: why wasn't it released? Is there anything left from it or was it dropped in early stages of programing?

The info provided suggests the game was 'developed' but not released due to Anthony moving over to Micro Projects who programmed some quality C64 software; Thing on a Spring, Monty on the Run etc. I would love to know if 'developed' means actually completed or just a concept. Magazine adverts aren't cheap so I suspect there was definitely a work in progress there. We need somebody like Frank Gasking on board for this (C64 missing game hunter extraordinaire!!).

Does anyone have Anthony Clarke's email address I wonder... ;)
