Today’s diversion at work was Swords and Sandals, a quirky gladiator sim built in Flash.
You can build your own character, name them, change their stats, buy equipment, and then head for the arena for a fight to the death RPG-style.
The game definitely does not seem totally balanced at the moment, but then what Flash game ever is? Regardless, it is quite a time waster and lots of fun.
My co-workers are still schooling me in our little mini-league we have set up for the game, but every once in a while I am victorous.
Now if I could only get that theme song out of my head… “Swords and Sandals… gladiators…”
