Alternate name: Gauntlet-like

The first video game about Dandy-like was released in 1983.

U.S. Gold, Firebird and Mastertronic has published most of these games

This is named Dandy-like instead of Gauntlet-like for two reasons. 1) Dandy was the first game to have it. 2) Gauntlet series has not kept with the gameplay, thus using Gauntlet-like would be confusing to those who've only played the later ones.

Atari converted and published Dandy as Dark Chambers for several of their own PCs and Consoles.
