Dare you face the greatness of the gladiator's arena? Take on the role of a gladiator warrior destined to defeat wild beasts and ruthless warriors in the majestic Colosseum. Confront fierce beasts and skilled enemies as you fight for your place as the greatest gladiator of all time. Master combat techniques and prove that you are worthy of standing in the centre of the Colosseum...


Take on the role of a gladiator warrior

Gladiator's Arena is an old skool game that sadly gets a little old rather quickly. The gameplay is simple. You start off as a lowly slave with just one weapon and must fend off wave after wave of... What look like domestic cats... But I assume are tigers. Eventually you complete that level and can progress to the next one, with more challenging enemies. And so on...

As you move through the ranks you'll be able to adapt your play style by choosing from weapons including bows, swords, hammers, and more. Increase your attributes and statistics as you gain experience and achieve victories. Obtain powerful buffs to further boost your strength and endurance. Become the ultimate gladiator that no one dares to challenge.

It gets a little to repetitive a little too soon, and the lure of unlocking new weapons or new buffs just didn't excite me, especially as they didn't really seem to make much difference to my progress.

It's cheap enough to appeal to those who love retro gaming, but otherwise there's not much here to keep you entertained for more than a few hours.
