Then, the player can also choose the name, the favourite things, the least favourite things and three fun facts of about the gladiator.


When the game is started for the first time, the tutorial, called Prologue, is automatically opened, showing the following phases:

  1. Buy: the player can buy a gladiator by 50 gold. The player will start with 1000 gold. Increasing the number of current gladiators will increase also the cost of his/her next gladiator.
  2. Customize: the player can customize the gladiator, even the species, the height (can affect on agility) and the weight (can affect of speed)
  3. Equip: the player can choose the weapon-type. This will be applied to the selected gladiator forever. It it also possible to use a secondary weapon. He/She must also choose an armor (breast, head and foot) and a shield.
  4. Identity: the player is allowed to choose name, age, favourite stuff, least favourite stuff ect...
  5. Fight: the first battle is easy, but you must be aware to your next opponents.
  6. Experience: the first victory will reward your gladiator with 150 XP (experience points), allowing him/her to the next level. Choose his/her attributes wisely.
  7. Future: the future is yours now. Build your ultimate gladiator team and winn against all champions. Roma invicta!


All through the game, there is a map which shows the following places:

  • Home: views all the statistics of the player's team;
  • Shrine: buy special objects like cures and magics;
  • Temple: train your gladiators

  • Prison: buy new slaves for your team;
  • Senate: do mission for more experience and rewards;
