Good graphics: check. Mythical creatures: check. Blood, violence, and a shamed gladiator set on revenge: check, check, and check. If all those are all on your list of "things for a good mobile game," then Gamelion Studios' Rage of the Gladiator should fit the bill pretty well.

HIGHLIGHTS
* Stunning 3D graphics!
* Full voice acting. Each boss has its own personality, and taunts you mercilessly!
* Extremely realistic animations. When you attack bosses, the impacts and hits feel "real."
* 14 insane finishing moves. Summon a fiery meteor, a savage tornado, or transform into a hulking colossus 10x your size!
* Customize your character with new weapons and armor.
* Gain new powers and skills! How will you build your character? Choose Offense, Defense, or Magic.
* Epic music. Enjoy blood-pumping masterpieces by legendary composer Sean Beeson!
* Great replay value. Beat the game to unlock new difficulties, where bosses are much tougher with all-new abilities! Over a dozen hours of gameplay!
* A monumental undertaking, with content comparable to a console title, but with a budget title price!

About Rage of the Gladiator:
You play the role of Gracius, a gladiator battling for his life in the arena. Your opponents are no ordinary evil, but are epic boss fights whose tricky attacks will challenge even the most elite gamers. There are no ‘fodder’ enemies – its all bosses - the most fun part of games! Beat them before they brutally beat you.
Armed with your magical warhammer and a trusty shield, you must exploit their weaknesses by jumping, dodging, shield blocking, or counter-attacking with proper timing, agility, and thinking. Then unleash your rage by brutally pounding your enemy with your warhammer, and perform over-the-top combo finishers such as summoning a vicious lightning storm or a deadly pillar of fire.

    Whenever I see a game that looks this good for free I'm awful leery. Usually means impossible to get past level 3 without $20 in "gems"

      Whenever I see/hear the word "gladiator" I think of this

      Yup I played a game like this before and the first one or two bosses were great fun. Then you better start reaching in your pocket for the most basic of weapons and armour to start progressing.
      Frequently free games are just getting skipped right by these days, I assume this is another one.

        If it's free I pass... been doing that for 6 months now. Can't stand being nickel and dimed. Would gladly pay $5-10 bucks up front for the whole game.

    I don't think that's the best strategy...
