Glory of Gladiators is a free-to-play browser-based strategy RPG from Gamebox, the maker of Project Tank and DDTank2. It puts players in the role of a master of an ancient Roman gladiator training school and quests them with recruiting and training fighters and then sending them to compete with other gladiators in violent confrontations. Following story-driven quests, players can experience famous campaigns and encounter renowned gladiators, and even get the chance to recruit those figures in their own school.
The game highlights strategy in place of control or skill. Players need to discover potential fighters among slaves, criminals, captives, and volunteers before training them and honing their skills. With the coins earned through battles, players can purchase weapons to equip their strongest warriors.
However, even the strongest warriors won’t be victorious all the time. As players train their fighters, those fighters grow skilled and older. Only those powerful ones in their best years can stay undefeated in the arena.
Presented in detailed graphics, Glory of Gladiators features ARPG-style battle visuals where two warriors, displayed against a varying setting, fight against each other using their distinctive battle skills. Players every once in a while need to tap the skill button to unleash their gladiator’s attack.
