Test your mettle against television's American Gladiators in this 8-bit adaptation of the hit NBC series. Five featured events include Joust, Human Cannonball, Powerball, Assault, and the Wall. Both Joust and Human Cannonball involve knocking a series of four gladiators off platforms, either by whacking them with a staff or by swinging into them on a rope. Powerball has you quickly scooping up balls from designated areas and throwing them in well-guarded baskets.
Assault is an obstacle course that has you trying to avoid being hit with a high-speed ball launcher. The Wall involves tapping both buttons to simulate climbing with your left and right hands, all while dodging hazards and the pursuit of a gladiator. After all five events are completed, play resumes on a higher difficulty level with alternate patterns and stage layouts. Complete all four levels to open up a sixth event called the "Eliminator." Passwords provided after each series lets you resume progress at a later time. ~ Justin Elliott, All Game Guide
