You've just lost your position in the empire army. You set out to begin a new life as a gladiator trainer. Atleast you found an old abandoned farm where you can build your gladiator school. Can you train simple slaves to become fighters and survive the gladiatorial spectacles in the arena? It won't be easy.

Ever since the supreme emperor banished you from the war, your old life have all but disappeared, once the greatest military commander in the empire now forced to recruit soldiers at the local slavemarket. You’ll need to regain your reputation and status in the empire by rising to the top in gladiatorial rankings.

Choose wisely how to level your fighters. Keep a close eye on them, make sure they are loyal or they might rise up against their master. Make sure they fight for you and for your cause.

I Barely have the first hours of play and I can say it's very good. For a while I was looking for a game like this and I found it. Much better than Age of gladiators. If You like management games and the theme of Gladiators is super recommended, only lack the Spanish translation.

Product received for free early access review a game that already has solid foundations and is based on a relatively little theme on PC. In the State (Alpha) there is already something good to have fun and if the devs go to the end of their roadmap, then Gladiator school will be a title to have absolutely in his library steam, for little that we like the genre management/management. At the moment the only reproaches I have to make him are three:-1. An annoying bug that makes our Gladiators no longer recognize baths or training machines (reload his part seems to solve the problem). 2. Fights that quickly give a feeling too repetitive (the setting up of a simulation of the fights would be very appreciable, I think and even more so when there are many Gladiators to be fought). 3. A UI not always well thought (why can not one cancel an order with a simple right click, instead of having to go click on the cross of a thumbnail?).
