It is very important to know your characters before you begin with story mode and start the survival. Every Character in Gauntlet is very unique and each has his own combat style. Wizard is good with the magic attacks but has a poor health. Elf Is good with small attacks like shooting arrows and throwing bombs in a single shot.

If you are searching for a character with for of distant attacks then you better pet a Wizard or an Elf to do the job. Stick with the player and if you find you don’t like it then change and see what others have to offer. The Character you choose will play a key role in the Game. So choose wisely.
If your character dies in the game then you have two options either you use the skull coins which you have collected during your kills and collecting treasure in the game. And once you have used them up you can try to recollect some of them after your rebirth. The other way is to restart the game. This will end all the fun you had so far. So you need to build a good strategy to survive and use the coins wisely.
To start with, you need to keep a close eye on the health bar. If you have taken damage while fighting then the collect the food scattered throughout the stage, this will refill your health. You need to keep your health up for the long run and this can be only possible if you keep collecting foods. Also keep your Aly healthy, if he needs some food then stop being greedy and give then one.
Note: The Skull Coins are equally important as foods in the game, so search them while playing.
One of the best way to survive is to avoid the Death which pops up at any level in Gauntlet: Slayer Edition. If he touches you are killed that very moment. There are two ways to avoid Death first is very simple – RUN away. Use your characters Dash attacks to cut down the enemies in front of you and this will avoid him for a moment. The second way is to use the magic potion which you hardly find in the game. Whenever Death comes use the potion and you will have time to escape until he comes back.
Collecting gold is important as you need them when you buy items from the shop. Gold will also help you to shop and improve the Character’s gear and performance. Take your time, improve the looks and also use the customization option to use it on your character’s Armour.
