    TRIVIA
    Gladiator was released in March 1986 in USA.

    A prototype version of this game is known as "Golden Castle". This game is known in Japan as "Ougon no Shiro", and as "Great Gurianos".

    Guaranos and Irene appear in Allumer's "Blandia" as the selectable characters Gurianos and Irriana respectively.

    Stephan Gore holds the official record for this game with 41012800 points.

    UPDATES
    The Japanese version ("Ohgon no Siro") and the prototype ("Golden Castle") have a nudity feature not present in Gladiator. The female warrior Irene is shown with bare breasts when defeated by removing all layers of her chest armor (In Gladiator she still wears a bikini top when defeated this way).

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • When Gurianos is fully armored, the player may create a momentary protective shield by rapidly moving the joystick up and down.
    • Pick up all 4 flying swords at the beginning of each stage to turn Gurianos' sword RED. If the player is then able to hit an opponent's shield 14 times with his RED SWORD, is armor is momentarily changed to a glowing GOLD color and his opponents can't harm him.
    • Break the Magic Crystal Balls to replenish Gurianos' armor.
    • Each opposing warrior has his own personality and way of fighting. Irene is vulnerable when she strikes at the player's chest armor. Zenon is most vulnerable when you trick him and make him laugh. Each opponent has his strengths and weaknesses and it's fun and challenging to the player to learn each of them.
