Achievements I should have got: Gauntlet (NES)

Oh Tengen Gauntlet. The first of many five dollar NES games my Mom bought per her game buying doctrine. I spent many a year slogging through its innards, battle its minions, wandering through the mazes, finding powerups and writing down passwords. But alas it was an impossible foe. I don't think there are many who beat this game or beat it without some assistance.
