Swords and Sandals 3 Walkthrough
Coming at you with GREAT doses of strength and comedy - this is Swords And Sandals 3! If you loved the first installments, then you will surely go nuts about this one. The objective of the game pretty much stays the same: kill or be killed as you fight one gladiator after another in the Arena / Coliseum.
Just like Swords And Sandals 1 and 2, you get to customize your character when you enter the game. HOWEVER, the third installment has some nice additions in this department which takes the game to a whole new level. Aside from being able to change the hair, hairstyle, skin color, built, weight, etc. of your gladiator, you get intimate amounts of personalization by being able to add your own Taunt and Victory call. Along with that, you can even add an interesting trivia about your Gladiator (although they are pre-set).
Just how crazy could you get with your character's optimization?
Well, I just watched Rocky IV when I first got my hands on Swords And Sandals 3. The first idea that popped into my head is, why not resurrect Carl Weathers' character (Apollo Creed) in Swords And Sandals 3? Immediately, I went to the character customization screen - found a not-so-tall BUT bulky build for my character's body; made his hair a little thicker; added a moustache; and lastly, picked a dark skin color. The end result? The guy does look like a flash-game incarnation of Apollo Creed!
As for the Taunts and Victory calls, I made it as close as possible to Apollo's: "Living In America" (as my taunt call... that's the song he sang before getting killed in the ring) and "Somebody has to take you to school" (this is my victory call). YES, I did a good job of creating a gladiator that is identical to Rocky's Apollo Creed. Not only that, I did a good job of following his foot-steps at the ring, too... my gladiator fell swift. Nah, he didn't even fell. He was turned to ashes! Man, I didn't even get the chance to use the Victory call.
Of course, that may not be crazy enough for you. BUT trust me, the personalization options in Swords And Sandals 3 is more than enough for you to create a rainbow colored gladiator. That's something you don't see everyday!
Just like in the previous installments of this popular RPG games series, much of the action will be at the Coliseum where you will execute moves and attacks in a turn based fashion. The format, HOWEVER, is different this time around. Graag Skummo has summoned you to defeat 5 gladiators he personally chose. You will see the statistics listed... and that allows you to pick up the cannon fodders first. BUT keep in mind, at the end of the day, you need to fight them all. You need to beat 5 gladiators before moving on to the next batch of 5.
The "Challenge The Next Arena Champion" Mode is played like 'The King Of The Hill'. You need to rise through a hierarchy of Gladiators until you become the highest ranked of them all. If, along the way, you are defeated, you will be brought back to the castle screen where you can make the necessary preparations to begin your assault for the championship once more.
All in all, I think it's safe to say that Swords And Sandals is MORE than just a sequel. The entirely different format of the game, while sitting on the same premise as before, sets it apart from its predecessors. Bottom line, this is one of those RPG games I would highly recommend!
