Not to be confused with the Portcullis.
The Gate is an obstacle that is sometimes encountered in the game.
The Gate is a horizontal obstacle usually found in floors and often leads to a new area to be explored. They come in different types and sizes and can be made of wood or more usually metal bars. There is usually but not always, a Lever or Pressure Switch somewhere nearby that has to be activated to open the Gate.
When going down into a new area after going through a Gate, there is often a trap or Skeletons waiting to attack the unwary.
- All three heroes the Knight, the Thief and the Wizard can use the Lever or Pressure Switch to open Gates.
