It is the zenith of the mighty Roman empire.
High and low, rich and poor, they all come to the Coliseum.
And with one mighty voice, they cry aloud…
Coliseum requires no downloads or plug-ins. You can take a short (or long) time to work with your gladiators, conspire with your fellows and generally unwind.
You are a newly-minted lanista – coach and owner of a stable of gladiators. But you’re more than that.
Once, your family was rich and powerful, but the reforms your father proposed threatened the wallets and sensibilities of other powerful men. Rescued from slavery after the assault and butchery of your household, you now bide your time, building your own influence and the only form of private army available in these days, waiting to find the one responsible and have your revenge…
Caesar, nervous of uprisings, does not permit private armies but allies will fight beside you!
A Gladiator no longer, you will discover who destroyed your family and sold you into the Arena.
Murmillo, Thracian, Hoplomachus and Retiarius – grasp the tactics and equipment of the different classes of gladiators as your chosen fighters prove their worth, and yours, before the baying crowds.
Work your way towards the eternal city itself, mighty Rome, as your stable and network of contacts expand, your own power waxes and the tangled threads of ambition, jealousy and revenge weave themselves into the tapestry of your destiny.
