Overlooking the association with the questionable Johnny Turbo brand, Gate of Doom isn't all that bad, even if it's a long way from being a solid-gold classic. It certainly isn't on par with competitors from this particular era, but it at least manages to provide the essentials that make brawlers like this fun for one or two people for a short period.

There was potential in Gate of Doom. I almost want to go back and play it again now, but when I remember how frustrating it is, seemingly designed to kill me as many times as possible, I decide against doing so.

Gate of Doom is a fun button masher on Nintendo Switch that you'll certainly enjoy. As is to be expected of an arcade game from over 25 years ago, you're looking at playing for around 40-60 minutes or to be able to beat this mystical adventure. And since the game is a button-mashing fun adventure, once you've beaten it you can do it all over again with a different character, or even invite a friend to join you for some local co-op as you both take on the many monsters and bosses in your path.

From its goofy retro fantasy setting to its unique magic system; Gate Of Doom is a solid arcade gem that's worth checking out.

I can safely say that this Johnny Turbo Arcade port is very solid, and brings the game home for what appears to be the first time ever! It may not have the online features of the Arcade Archives series, and the features of the emulator could use a bit of work for future installments, the core game is still a lot of fun with friends, even if it’s standard as far as arcade games go.
