Game Ratings

We're sorry, but we don't have any reviews on this game yet.

Rage of the Gladiator is a fantasy-based fighting game. You play the role of Gracius, battling for his life in the arena.

Your equipment consists of a magical war-hammer and a trusty shield. Wait for the right moment, then dodge, jump, or block your enemy's attacks. Next, unleash your rage by brutally pounding your enemy with your war-hammer and bashing them with your shield. Each opponent has a unique style and pattern that you need to pay close attention to. Learn to exploit the weakness of each enemy with the proper timing and agility, and you will triumph.

The combo system in this game is a way for you to unleash devastating power against your enemy, using your stored energy to cast spells and perform complicated physical attacks.

Early on, you may learn how to leap into the skies and plunge your warhammer into the ground, creating a pillar of fire that burns your enemy to a crisp. As you progress you may learn more deadly combos, such as conjuring an ancient tornado to lay the ground asunder.

However, this is just the starting point. Prove your worth in the arena and you will earn devastating finishers such as a savage lightning storm or a fiery meteor.

To perform a combo, you need to have the minimum amount of energy in your meter. You earn energy when you connect with your hits, and lose energy when you get hit. More powerful combos require more energy, and some combos even take all of your energy in one shot!

Features:

  • Insane "finishing moves." You have 14 finishing moves that destroy your opponent in over-the-top cutscenes:
    • Leap to the skies, then plunge your warhammer into the ground, creating a pillar of fire that burns your enemy to a crisp.
    • Transform into a hulking colossus 10 times the size of your opponent, pounding him into the ground.
    • Darken the skies with a solar eclipse, sending a beam of light to fry your enemy.
  • Customize your character. As you defeat bosses, you earn skill points. You can apply those skill points to one of three skill trees: Offense, Defense, and Magic. This gives you new powers. It also provides great replay value since you can replay through the game with different skill tree decisions.
  • Fantastic 3D-graphics. Fully rendered and realistic, you do combat in a fully lit 3D arena. This polish level is rare for a downloadable title.
  • Extremely realistic animations. When you attack bosses, the impacts and hits feel "real." Each boss has been painstakingly animated to react properly to each of your attacks.
  • Outstanding replay value. Once you've beaten the first 10 bosses, you must face them again in Challenge Mode, which is a completely new experience - the bosses are more difficult with new powers. There are 21 total battles.
  • Epic soundtrack. The music has been designed to be exciting and memorable, and really gets your blood pumping.
