Get Medieval is an action game developed and published by Monolith Productions for the PC in 1998.


Kellina's father died by the a giant dragon that went to the dungeons (which he built) and ready his minions to a mortal combat. The avenger (Kellina) and her friends are ready to avenge the horrible dragon. Before that times, the dragon burnt to ash a whole villages and killed a lot of people, the 4 warriors know it and need to stop him.


Get Medieval is an overhead shooter in which the player can control one of four characters in a dungeon, players can find Attack and Defense Upgrades, once you die you lose these upgrades. Also it can be played in 3 modes, Dragon Quest, Random Dungeon, or Custom Dungeon, and 4 difficulties Easy, Medium, Hard, Torture Chamber, it has 40 levels, and 20 types of enemies. This gameplay is almost identical to that of Atari's arcade game Gauntlet.

The Archer (Eryc), The Barbarian (Zared), The Sorceress (Levina), and The Avenger (Kellina) differ only in speed and strength. The slowest character (Zared) is the strongest, the fastest (Eryc) the weakest.

This game comes with a world editor, which allows you to make custom levels. Users can do everything that Monolith Games did in their levels, but it doesn't give you full control on the level. For example - with the world editor it is not possible to put every kind of enemy in every kind of dungeon. Custom levels can only contain a maximum of five kinds of enemies and their spawners in a specific dungeon. The world editor of the game called "GMedit" (or "WapWorld") a primitive game-editor.


The game received generally above average reviews, citing the improved graphics over Gauntlet. IGN complimented the game's presentation, but felt that the humor in the game was overdone.[2] GamePro noted the game's similarity to Gauntlet, but praised the game's sound effects and overall look.[3] GameSpot writes, "One fact will immediately become apparent when playing Get Medieval: This game is Gauntlet.[4]
