Go on give it a go, you know you want to..

Become a gladiator, brought to Rome as a slave, and see if you can escape the horrors of the Colosseum and get back to your homeland. You will need to gather tools and weapons, make friends and allies, bribe guards, and avoid the soldiers chasing you!

Glory and freedom will be your reward. Also, play as a Roman soldier, and stop those other gory gladiators from making their way out of the city.

This game will catapult you into the wicked world of Terry Deary’s international bestselling books and help you discover the nasty bits in history for yourself.

All the gore and more!

The game works on a roll and move system. Players start in the gladiatorial arena and have to move around the Coliseum to collect resources such as armour, weapons, food and water. When the time is right they can try to escape, run through the streets of Rome, and make a break for freedom into the open countryside. The first gladiator to reach his home country wins.
