Looking for an old Gauntlet-like game [Solved please close]

Hi gang,

There was a PC game that was insanely similar to Gauntlet, down to classes, dungeons, and all that jazz. It basically admitted to being a clone/ ripoff, but it was fantastic as a mindless time waster. It was for PC only. I'd love to find it again but I can't find the name, and I can't find the game name by searching for "Gauntlet-like" on google. Please help, I thank you!

    Was it slightly comic? How long ago are we talking?

    It was comic. Overhead view, same as the ORIGINAL gauntlet, as opposed to the newer 3/4 isometric or 3D games. I remember playing it before 2002. It had a level editor. Classes similar to Elf, Wizard, etc.

    Nox and Diablo are both children of this game type, but the game I'm looking for was a bit simpler. It was basically a straight up gauntlet clone, straight from the roller-skating rink floor to your PC. There was no equipment, just straight up weapon upgrade power ups, potions, keys, and food.

    I remember the game you're talking about, but not the name of it. It was late 90s I think...

    sounds like a possible match, anyway

    I know! So annoying that I can't remember it. My brain thinks it started with "S" or "C". I always played the elf, because shooting through corners was so damn powerful.

    I've already downloaded the demo and started playing again, it's everything I hoped it would be =) Thank you!

    Still can't find a version of the whole game, but I'll keep trying.
