Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

its great for the most part but the AI is retarded -.- i keep getting down to one person left and she sits there using crowd appeal over and over....and over.. untill the last opponent smashes her head off before finishing the other two off... i mean.. other than that i suppose i dont have AI issues.. they seem to all team up on the same lumb and everything for the most part..sometimes they get stupid and just attack every piece of armor till they have none...but that happens i guess...all in all i love the game.. perhaps you could...i dunno tweek some not very technical so i couldnt tell ya how to do this and that...sooo whatever -.- ...umm maybe weaken the jerks in tarsus lol they mess me up bad in auto fight :3 ...thats it
thanks for the great game

Me oh my where did the past go? Well obviously I like the game but I'm only the tiny bit biased having a great love for Greek and Roman culture. But on to the review!

The good:
Simple and intuitive design- Anyone used to flash games of this genre will know exactly what to do. Even if they are not however they will get the hang of it in a snap.

Spartan (heh see what I did thar?) Tutorial- The tutorial was good. It gave you everything you needed and nothing more. No annoying hand holding assuming the player was an idiot.

Game play-Unless I am mistaken there are already a few games of this genre on the newgrounds market. This game certainly brought plenty to the table however! I spent an hour on the first city and only reached rank five! Which is fantastic. Combined with a learning curve and party system to keep you interested and engaged it's certainly the most gripping gladiator management game I've played.

The bad

Music-Not that big of a deal. Fit the mood just find but I did find myself switching over to my youtube playlist about 40 minutes in as the battle music did get a tad repetitive.

Aim- the arms on the targeting system was a tad small. Quite a few times I found myself hitting the arms or head instead of the torso. Then again it can be argued that that adds to the chaotic factor of battle. However since the game seems to be going toward turn based combat and not simulation, it would be a stretch.

What I'd like to see

Customizable slaves- It would be nice to customize the appearance of my slaves.

Team banners- self explanatory

Aside from those small cosmetic issues you have a great game here! Very enjoyable! I also got a chuckle when my team (Hermes's Heroes) went up against Mercury's Mercenary's.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game all in all. Just a few things that need fixed/added. Like quite few others mentioned, dexterity didn't really seem to affect hit chance. One major thing that I would have liked would be a minus button for the skill menu and a "save changes" button or something. 'Cause I'm clumsy and accidentally choose the wrong stats on these types of things sometimes.
