The Arena Eternal was constructed by the mysterious Vadrigar, the enigmatic Arena Masters, far in the past. The arena was designed to satisfy the Vadrigar's insatiable hunger for carnage and battle. Now you, as a gladiator, must enter battle against the most powerful warriors in history who populate the Arena Eternal. More than 30 types of opponents, each with but a single thought -- survival -- awaits your appearance!
During gameplay, you have a wide variety of weapons from which to choose including several types of guns (machinegun, shotgun, plasma, lightning, rail and BFG), rocket and grenade launchers and bladed weapons. Three kinds of armor can be utilized, each uniquely affecting your armor rating, while more than a half-dozen power-ups dot the arena, providing enhanced combat abilities ranging from invisibility to flight.
