Elysium: Blood Games plunges you into a world of blood, dark influence and secret dealings. You play an Arenamaster who controls a ludus of 3 fighters, plucked from the ruins of an ancient city and trained in the art of spilling blood for gold. Your goal is to guide, train and prepare them for the ultimate goal: holding the championship banner high.

Elysium features fully detailed warriors with 5 stats + a profile pic and a special trait that can affect gameplay in various ways, making them true individuals. Your job is to mold and guide them on their brutal journey and earn as much gold and glory as you can for yourself while keeping them alive and well. There is a dark side as well: Use your Influence to purchase assorted favors to gain special benefits, bribe opponents with gold, or use special Brews to boost your fighter’s skill.

The game features a detailed career engine, including injuries, realistic aging algorithm and career arcs, varied potential and development curves, and a training engine where you can specify what aspects to work on. Sign them to contracts that evolve as they develop in skill, acquire new blood in the between-seasons draft, and compete against 9 other warriors, all hungry for their own glory. Warriors over time retire, get killed or die of natural causes, and the game features full tracking of highly successful warriors, championship winners and those who tragically die in combat.

* The game includes lots of built-in help and tooltips to make the process of learning the game quick and simple, and high-res graphics/UI, music and sound pull you into the experience.

* Totally replayable - warriors, brews, schedules, everything is randomly generated every time you start a new game. No two setups are ever the same.

* Gamble on other matches, bribe opponents, advertise your matches for greater earnings, complete secret objectives for rewards and upgrade to larger venues as you accumulate career wins. 12 special match types change up the experience: Flaming Swords, Lions, extra gold or even the rare Sudden Death match!

* Use assorted dark methods to improve your warrior’s chance: Buying brews for your warrior to drink for boosted stats or buying special Favors (over 40 in the game) using your Influence obtained by winning matches.

* Complete career engine built in, including injuries, retirement, aging, and widely varied development arcs, making it a game that constantly changes and evolves over time. The game also comes with history tracking, like Championship winners, retired/killed warriors, Hall of Fame performers, and more.

* Thousands of ultra-detailed fight texts make the combat come alive, with realistic ebbs and flows, nail-biting comebacks, bleeding and sound effects to draw you into the action, with complete stats breakdown at the end of every fight: hit percentage, average damage, etc. Control each move of the fighter during a combat (Lunge, Normal, Defensive, or aim for a vein for Bleeding) or set it to an attitude and watch the combat play out. The choice is yours.

* At the end of every season, negotiate contracts, draft new blood into the league, and add to your own personal manager stats that can influence your ‘character’ in the game. Compete in single-elimination playoff tournaments, where the losers go home!

I Didn't like it at all. I Didn't understand anything. In Addition It has no options menu, only when you start a game you can mute the music. And it runs in window mode. Should have a tutorial, there is information but nothing in the game is shown in a clear way.

Product received for free Gladiator Gameplay idea is nice, but not well implemented here at all. First, no Information on how to proceed in the Game. And second, the Fighting looks awful. Pure Texts attacking System. Pure Simulation Gladiator Game. You shouldn't have a Problem with something Like that to find Elysium Blood Games Like ...

Crashes more often, has many Bugs and UI glitches. But that was already with the Positive. The Game looks sumi * * en. No, not the Fact that it is a 2D simulation/Mangement game that consists mainly of Text. It's simply optimized for a Resolution of an estimated 800 * 600 and looks heavily pixelated and distorted On my 50-Inch screen in HD. The Gameplay is modest, the management part is very limited and the Simulation seems to be limited to a Random Generator. Unfortunately, due To the Above-mentioned UI glitches, I was not able to carry out some Of the Necessary Accurctions in the game in the first place and then uninstalled it after about 15 Minutes.
