A digital world made from data blocks awaits you in the popular and challenging game The Gauntlet. Be prepared to dive into a strange world filled with various obstacles. After finding and meddling with the gauntlet, you find yourself inside of its interesting world. With the world rapidly vanishing behind you, your only chance to survive is to run as fast as you can. Do you have the stamina and reflexes you’ll need to endure this long and tiring journey?

The Gauntlet features fast-paced gameplay with an endless level that will keep you at the edge of your seat throughout your gaming session. As the player, your objective in this challenging game is to run as far as you can by avoiding — and sometimes destroying — the different kinds of obstacles you’ll encounter. You can start the game by moving your mouse arrow onto the gauntlet and clicking the activate button. Once the game starts, you can either play the tutorial to learn the basics or, if you feel like you’re ready for the challenge, you can skip the tutorial and start playing immediately. You will notice that the world is collapsing behind you and if you get caught by the screen, you will die. Your character is constantly on the move, so all you have to do in this game is to use the correct arrow keys to avoid the obstacles. Crashing into one of these will push you back. As you dodge obstacles you’ll earn points and level up. You can keep track of your progress on the bar located in the upper right corner of the screen. How long can you keep on running?
