Hop into the sandals of a gladiator and fight for glory in epic arena battles. Now with cross-platform realtime online multiplayer 1vs1 battles!

Gladihoppers is a wacky 2d physics gladiator battle simulator where the mix of the 2d physics and regular 2d animation offers a fun and original gameplay quite unlike your average gladiator mobile game. The combat system features two different battle stances for your gladiator, each with their own directional attacks of varying power and speed that allow for more dynamic and interesting battles.

In addition to melee attacks there are also javelins to throw and over 90 items to customize your gladiator with; swords, axes, maces, shields, helmets, armor, pants, gloves and shoes.

Gladihoppers blends retro pixel art 2d sprites with 3d low poly environments to bring you a unique looking style and stunning visuals that provide an immersive gladiator experience.

- Online multiplayer vs random opponent or a friend
- Fast-paced melee and ranged combat with hitboxes for each body part
- Career mode featuring various tactics and ways for you to bring your gladiator to glory
- 'Spartacus' War' strategy mode with factions, armies and towns to conquer
- 'Save the Emperor' arcade mode for a virtually endless fighting experience
- Quick Fight mode for custom and/or randomized short and fast-paced arena duels, including split screen multiplayer on the same device
- Over 100 pieces of equipment and 16 different character faces from four populations during the era of the ancient Roman Empire: Romans, Gauls, Nubians and Egyptians
- Seven arenas with their own unique look and feel: The Colosseum, Aegyptus, Macedonia, Gallia, Hispania, The Ludus & The Palace

No complaints

So I have no complaints about the game that I can think of, but I do know that if you start adding things to the game it will get way more plays and continued play. I know that I will uninstall this sometime because I know I will be done with using the same armor and weapons even when fully upgraded. So if you could treat this game like call of duty and start adding things like weapons and different armor and even armor and/or weapon customization, then it would be amazing. We need more incentives to keep fighting the fights lol!

New swinging animations as the weapons get higher tier would be great. So would special effects like burning damage or poison damage. The little things like that would make me addicted to this game if they were done.

I like the game. The fighting I really like and each hit has weight to it. The music is tribal and fits with the style and theme. I really like the combat and besides a few times I’ve never looked back on a time I lost and thought the cpu was being cheap. The only thing I dislike is the career mode. It’s where you choose a character with unique strength and endurance stats (you get to choose only one, but can reveal others that might have better gear and stats with gold coins). After every fight you get three options, one free the other two with gold coins, to upgrade either gear or your two stats. There are three stats that you upgrade once you level up, but they are useful after fights. fight and level him up until death, when he dies you start over again, but you can use gold coins for permanent upgrades. The permanent upgrades never increase damage and leveling up doesn’t either, so unless at the end of the battle get a better weapon or an increase in strength you can’t increase damage. If I’m unlucky with the stuff I get I’ll only be able to increase health and health regen items with money, and I’ll fight people that have 100 less health but double the damage I do so the fights drag on and it just isn’t as fun. To change it I’d add in a third star you can upgrade that increases damage, and make the gear or stat upgrades bigger than increments of one or two.

Developer Response ,

First of all, thank you so much for this review! And regarding your complaints about the Career mode, they're good points and I totally agree. The true random nature of the upgrades can put you in a very good or a very bad situation. I think that for the next update I will (among other things) address this problem and make the upgrades take into account your current stats and be less random. Thanks again, GoneTogue!

Online and button mapping

Hello developers when I first saw your game I immediately fell in love with it eventually I eventually got the game on my phone. Now for the little changes I know your probably a small Indy game team and I don’t expect you to get on this right away but I just though it would be nice to add online play to the game. I know that can be a challenge especially if you have a small team ( which you probably do) but I just think it would be a fun feature so you can rank up in competitive play or just casual games against other players or you can just play with some friends and see who’s the best. Besides that another thing I want changed is the button mapping. Sometimes I end up pushing the wrong button and losing so I just want a feature where you can change where the buttons can be placed ( this might also help for left handed people as well). Anyway these are my little suggestions for the game and maybe you can add these later. Well I’m still gonna play the game and support you. I hope you ( or your team) keep making amazing games and keep up the good work!😁😁😁

Developer Response ,

Hey, thanks for your suggestions! I've just recently added online multiplayer to the game. It doesn't have a lot of features yet, but it's a start to see how it goes. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think! :D
