In the amazing Gladiator you must take control of an ancient warrior named Great Gurianos and help him battle through the halls of a huge castle to defeat all manner of deadly enemies by bringing down Great Gurianos' mighty sword! Fight well and use the shield to defend from attacks as well as the sword to launch attacks! Every hit you take will result in loss of armour so fight well or you'll soon be fighting naked and vulnerable to attack!
If you enjoy a good gladiatorial classic then you'll also want to take a shot at more great titles, such as Mick and Mack: Global Gladiators, American Gladiators and the fantastic Mick & Mack as the Global Gladiators!
