A downloadable game for Windows

Brave waves of enemies in the great colosseum ! Build your fame in the arena and have a fight against the man who abducted your wife.

Arena is a high difficulty game.  Be ware, you'll have to try hard to get good results ! Play the story mode (story line is yet absolutely incomplete), and defeat successive waves of more and more enemies. Feel like challenging yourself ? Compete for the high score in survival mode !

The game is still in development. Feel free to give us feedbacks and bug reports by leaving a comment (known bugs are listed at the bottom). We would enjoy to team up with graphists to have our own assets, contact us if you're interested.

Controls :

Format : Keyboard | Controller : Action

Arrows | Left Stick : Move / Jump / Crouch (Spacebar also allows you to move)
W | Square / X : Punch (Fast, might allow you to make combos)
E | Triangle / Y : Kick (Pushes your ennemies back)
R | Circle / B : Sword (Deals more damage)
S | RT / R2 : Slide (Cancels ennemy attack, stuns them and allows fast moves)
D | LT / L2 : Dodge (Well, that's pretty explicit)
T | DPad Down : Interact with items
P and Esc | Start : Pause the game

We suggest that you play with a controller, however we didn't have time to make the menu usable with it yet.

Targets for future improvements:

  • Juice (more and cleaner feedbacks)
  • Ergonomy (controller friendly menus, input settings)
  • Story (full rework)
  • PlayTime/Replayability (More ennemies, storing high score, balancings...)

Known bugs :

  • Persistant feedbacks : 
    • When hitting an enemy by sliding, the particles are persistant
    • When the player dies, particles are persistant
    • -Didn't identify the conditions- The text for the amount of damage sometimes also sticks to the screen

Patch notes :

  • v1.1 (28/02) :
    • StoryMode loads correctly
    • Player can now restart when loosing in SurvivalMode
    • Removed StoryMode's HUD from SurvivalMode
  • v1.2 (01/03) :
    • Improved StoryMode's HUD and difficulty curve
