Hello again. Today we have for you a game called Viva Caligula. We'll let this description do the talky-talk:

Paint Rome red as you control emperor Caligula on a violent, decadent rampage through the city. Slice and dice your way through your citizenry with 26 different collectable weapon (one for every letter in the alphabet) and gain access to the orgy-where pain and pleasure are brought to new heights.


- Arrow keys - Move Caligula around the environment.
- Letter keys - Attack (with weapon assigned to that letter)
- Microphone - If you have a microphone hooked up to your computer and this function enabled, yelling, screaming or talking in a loud volume into it will fill Caligula's rage meter.
- When Caligula's rage meter is full you'll enter Rampage Mode. Most enemies can be vanquished in one strike when Rampage is active.
- Collect weapons.
- Smash glowing vases to reveal power-ups and health items.
- Rome is divided into seven distinct areas.

A few tips while you play:

- You get more points for defeating enemies in quick succession. Keep up your spree to get maximum points.
- You must collect all 26 weapons to gain access to the orgy room.
- For every weapon you collect without dying you will get double the points than the last weapon you got, starting at 10 points. It may seem insignificant, but don't underestimate exponential growth.

And that about sums it up. This is a skewed side/overhead view action game, loads of stuff to kill and collect. Originally developed by ThisIsPop, produced by Adult Swim Games.



just wonderful!

can't play

doesn't load for me

Great frustration reliever.

Girlfriend break up with you? Pissed at a coworker? Out of coffee again? Why not relieve the anger by killing thousands of innocents? I found this game after I got home from a particularly bad day at work. I plugged in a mic and five minutes later I was screaming like an axe murderer while I crossbowed guards and fat hookers in the face. I don't have anywhere near the patience to get remotely close to all the weapons, but this very entertaining game is perfect for relieving stress.

P.S.- If you're playing this without a mic, you are seriously missing out. And if you're using a mic but whispering into it, you're still missing out. I was screaming like that axe just went into MY skull, and bloody hell it felt good.

It's a good stress reliever.

It's fun. Nice range of weapons and it kept me hooked for awhile. I saw this while I was watching an [Adult Swim] commercial and I decided to give it a try. Good job to the makers of this game and good job to the [Adult Swim] ads on T.V.

...but it froze on me.

Nice one! I really like the idea and the graphics were quite cool, although the gameplay is a little imprecise.
