A fantasy gladiator game
Don't ask why, but it seems that gladiator games are becoming popular on mobile devices. Rage of the Gladiator, as its previous counterparts, would be considered a first person fighting game in which you can block, dodge and attack by different buttons and actions on the screen. Whereas a typical fighting game will allow characters to move back and forth and attack at the same time, "gladiator games" are closer to a turn based game because normal attacks inflicts little, when not symbolic damage and strategy is about analyzing your opponent's moves, dodge or preempt in the very precise moment and let throw everything you have.
This RotG is quite fantastic both in its gameplay and enemies, moving away from other more classical (or "realistic") games. You'll face a stormy naga-like medusa, a goblin priest that invokes his god every time he's beaten, and a cliched minotaur, to name the first three, and skill include but are not limited to summon lighting bolts and fire tornados.
This game follows a mixed freemium formula, in which you can play for free but a, there's a stamina bar to prevent too many battles one after the other; and b, eventually your gear won't be enough to beat the more powerful bosses and you'll have to purchase a brand-new brilliant freak-slaying sword or whatever. Meanwhile, enjoy the intense gameplay, the great graphics and animations and, especially, the beatiful music and voices.

You play the role of Gracius, a gladiator battling for his life in the arena. Your opponents are no ordinary evil, but are epic boss fights whose tricky attacks will challenge even the most elite gamers. There are no ‘fodder’ enemies – its all bosses -- the most fun part of games! Beat them before they brutally beat you.
Armed with your magical warhammer and a trusty shield, you must exploit their weaknesses by jumping, dodging, shield blocking, or counter-attacking with proper timing, agility, and thinking. Then unleash your rage by brutally pounding your enemy with your warhammer, and perform over-the-top combo finishers such as summoning a vicious lightning storm or a deadly pillar of fire.

Better than Blood & Glory, can do more moves. Playability is in every way better. Any one who has played B&G, will definitely like this a lot more. One of the best, fighting game around.
