Swords and Sandals Instructions

Like other RPG games out there, the control scheme of "Swords And Sandals" takes very little time to learn. As long as you know how to point and click your mouse at the right places, you should be good to go. Now let's have a closer look at the game...

Swords and Sandals Walkthrough

Back in Ancient Rome, when men were manly and warriors take the battle to their enemies instead of hiding in trenches, the Coliseum is the center of entertainment. People gather here not to see a parade or a flashy display of fireworks. They are in for something more brutal - to see 2 gladiators take on each other... slash and cut the other down to the last breath. That was their idea of fun, and if you think that's fun too, then you are in for a treat. Swords And Sandals, developed by the guys at 3RDSENSE, brings ancient Rome and gladiator battles back to life.

To get the game started, you need to personalize your Gladiator. You need to change his hair style, the color of skin, the facial hair, and those are just to name a few. Of course, you can always leave it as it is BUT that's NOT fun. Oh! There are a lot of silly looks to choose from... you are bound to find something that suits your bizarre taste. What about a blue-skinned gladiator? Anyone? If you can't make up your mind about your gladiator's looks, you can always let the game's engine randomize it for you. After giving your gladiator his physical identity, you will now need to allot the 10 Skill Points to different stats of your gladiator: his strength, speed, charisma, and those are just to name a few.

When you enter the village in Swords And Sandals, there are different places you can go to... BUT for the most part, you will beef up your weapons and armor. After all, you are a gladiator. You are supposed to get as strong and beefy as possible; and shopping food at the local market doesn't count. Anyway, if you are in need of helmets, shin guards, and other gladiator "safety" gears (not that being a gladiator is never safe), just drop by at the Armory and you will surely find what you need. The Village Blacksmith, on the other hand, showcases a wide range of swords, axes, bashing weapons, and more. For anything that would lash, slash, and cleave your opponent half, the Blacksmith is your one-stop shop.

If you want to check how you are doing at any time in the game, you can always go to the right hand corner of the game screen. It will show you your progress (or lack thereof). From there, you will find your stats and the points allotted on each of them; the items you have at your disposal; and some general stuff that could help like your preferred options, skills you should take, weapons you don't have, and those are just to name a few. Use your money wisely. Get all of the necessary stuff you need to survive in the Coliseum, defeat enemies, earn more money, then rinse and repeat. This is how a game in Swords And Sandals goes.

Now let's get to the FUN part - the actual battle. To get things rolling in that direction, you should enter the Arena. There you will be paired against a warrior of equal skill level. So how do you go about cutting down your enemy? Oh! I forgot to remind you, this one of those turn based, tactical, RPG games where you need to click a movement, execute it, wait for your opponent's move, and the cycle goes on. There are 6 main movements in the game: Jump forward, jump backwards, taunt, charge, walk forward, and walk backwards. If you have defeated the other gladiator, a blue bar located at the bottom most part of the screen will show you your skilled progress. You are then taken to the village to do some more gladiator-shopping (if you have the cash for it). Just go back to the Arena when you are done for the next bout.

There are 7 champion opponents you need to face. And trust me, these guys are no pushovers. Get this: there are no walkthroughs or guides on Swords And Sandals out there on the internet. Why? Simple - it's hard and the enemies' actions are randomized. It's not something you can create a step-by-step walkthrough on.

So is the gladiator in you ready? If you are, play Swords And Sandals NOW!
