ABOUT THE GAME
You've inherited a plot of land and decided to build your own gladiator school. Now you must recruit fighters and command them to train hard. Every decision will matter. What weapons should they use? What skills should they learn? It is your job to prepare them as best as you can before you send them away to fight for their survival and entertain the crowd in the arena. Keep a close eye on your gladiators, make sure they are well fed, loyal and that they get some recreational time outside the gym or they might become very angry and rise up against their master. Your goal is clear, make your gladiators famous in the arena to earn as much coin as possible. Make the crowd go wild...
