Best game, if your looking for a scary thrilling game, download this one, offense or defensive whatever your playstyle is you going to have fun


I bet everything that the asshole who made this couldn't clear the game

How is it hard? I cleared the career's boss after a while by using secret names and the equipment stealing. Spartacus' War is pretty simple but does sometimes take a bit of practice in knowing which units are the ones that are harder to defeat and stuff. Arcade is literally just endless. The game isn't that hard.

Basically Miskolc tutorial 10/10

in multiplayer its not laggy but WEAPONS DONT hit and TELPORT PING ALOT please do somthing to fix this


Feels like you can't really control your character and unfair

Try mobile. It makes the game way easier to me.

This game really draws you in, its a good balance of fast paced silly madness and actually needing to play strategically if you don't want your gladiators to somehow get their head cut off by a mace wielding mad man in much nicer armor then you.


lol facts my m8

this game is amazing and i hope you keep updating it :D

Tried out your game with my brother. Had a great time playing it. Hope you like the video of me playing your game.

hmmmmm yes

anyone ever heard of narrow one



This game is just fantastic, i have been playing it for 2 hours and i LOVE IT

This is a really amazing game. This is kinda what I wanted from a fighter game, and more. Can't really complain, thank you so much

how i use the fucking spea

to throw the spear I think E

please for the love of Augustus creaser put this on steam or tell me how to install



Finally a game i can play on my slow pc

Hi developers! I love your game so much. I usually play with my class friends but in the pc, i can't change my key and it doesn't still have 2nd player's keyboard control. Can you add them?
Thank you for reading my comment!

Pretty cool! And the tip about the xbox controller is really serious lol It's a bit harsh to play with keyboard

amari un multijugador local ;-;

how do you create character



this games pretty cool i play it at school with my retarded friend


This is great. Very nice. Played with my friend stellan who lives at negra arroyo lane albequerque new mexico

screen is just black when i launch the app on mac.


Bro where's Gladihoppers Linux


wooo lets go the 32x bits is out



I came back after 3 years, it lost the 2nd player's keyboard control. I wanted to show this to my little sister, and play it with her. But, I guess no more. ;(


Wait you play with your young sister?i play with my sister to!


Didn't ask

yesterday at Friday 9th

i FINALLY managed to beat Gladihoppers 

my character was Max, a gaul with red long hair and woad paint on his chest and arms 

he had

a Greek Helmet

Black Leather Armor

Leather Wrist Wraps


Bronze Shin Guards (that were passed from one Max to another Max) 

Heavy War Hammer

Egyptian Shield

Maximum 18 strength

and 10 Endurance

and around 413 max Health

and Max was a Maceman 

i used the spy when i face Bots with sats higher than me 

(there should be a tutorial on how to block attacks because it really boggled my mind)

i have accepted and chosen the Emperor's offer

a farm in somewhere in the provnices 

Max lived in peace 

as a statue has been erected in the Ludus 

to remember everyone of his Red hair 

Gallic pecs with woad paint, and his body odor and foul language

it would be really awesome if that first person medieval game was a medieval version of Gladihoppers
(hope there's no anachronistic weapons and armors)

and i bet it would take place in the very early medieval ages

like the end of the Western Roman Empire

the age of the Franks and Normans, Lombards and Alamanni, Anglo-Saxons and Welsh, Picts and Gaels, Vikings and Slavs (danes and nords, the swedes went east to Kievan Rus), Sassanids and Byzantine Romans

the high middle ages could also be interesting

with armors and weapons like

the pole hammer and brigandine (studded leather armor but without leather) 

loved Gladihoppers, felt the rage of the "cheating" AI (they always seemed to trash me no matter how good i am or what gear i use) , but became satisfied when i finally beaten it.


Now, time for second ending (by not accepting emperors offer)

I suggest using class with two handed weapon.

Good luck


alright thanks


I need the version for 32 bits [Please!]


vow game


it鈥檚 fucking awesome game. Have played on my iPhone for days. Great!

I have been playing this game for at least 3 hours, 7 hours at most. The Spearman and Paladin class are way OP and I love it This game is great.

Edit bout 6 hours maybe.


Yeah, Paladin is op until some guy hits your naked head with a skullcrusher and you lose half your health bar in one shot, lol.


Amazing game, but I wish there was local multiplayer.


I love this game. I played it a while ago and it has evolved substantially. I love the multiplayer option and how there are servers for many different places.
