Description

ARENA GODS® is Spectacle Combat, a top-down, arena fighting game where 2 to 4 gladiators compete for the crowd’s favor in an anything goes death match spectacle.
You are gladiator.
Brave the arena and win the crowd to seize godhood!

History

The gates of the Colosseum open!
To be a gladiator in these times is to be one amongst untold thousands.
It is to be bound to the bloodiest sport imaginable.
It is a game you can play today, if you dare.
Forget certainty, for on the Sands anything and everything can happen.
Forget mercy, for in the Arena you will find none,
only an endless cycle of conflict and carnage, and the thirsting roar of the Mob.

But the Mob is as powerful as it is fickle.
Win their favor and you will seize glory.
Disappoint them, and you will not be missed...

Features

  • Fight armed or unarmed, strike or grapple, standing or on the ground.
  • Every object can be picked up, wielded as a weapon, and thrown as a projectile.
  • Most weapons kill in a single hit, but all can be disarmed.
  • Each weapon is unique with specific strengths and weaknesses.
  • The arena shifts and changes each round.
  • Skill and bravado will win the crowd's favor and grant advantage in combat.
