Real-time strategy games tend to follow a few basics but here is one that takes its large-scales battles and presents it in a humorous, minimalist art form. Here, your goal is to send little mannequins called “Guys” to your opponent’s side of the room while making strategic use of their types. And with 12 stages, you can be sure you will need different strategies as you progress.

Battles earn you points for unlocking more “Guys” or upgrade the ones you have. Whether it’s the “Guys” that specialize in Punching, Kicking or Throwing, knowing the right ones to send is the simple key to victory. You don’t even need to harvest any resources or construct buildings to start sending them in. Overall, it takes a simple concept about RTS and turns it into its own quirky mini-game.

▲ Hit the corresponding button to start mass producing your “Guys” and achieve victory!

▲ Use the points you earn to unlock additional units and adapt your strategies for tougher stages.

Rome may be relishing in all its glory, but it still needs the power and skill of a hundred gladiators to survive. Many enemies want to see Rome crumble, but since you rule over it, there is no way for them to win. Defend the city and watch it flourish under your rule – build houses for your gladiators, construct buildings to expand your influence, provide enough resources, and invest in your army’s training to stay on top of the fight.

To acquire more resources and skills for your gladiators, you must lead them to battle in different arenas – underground or formal. When in battle, tap your gladiator and drag it towards the enemy so it can attack. Gladiators cannot fight back if they are being attacked from behind, so be careful at all costs. Get awesome rewards like money, XP, new sets of weapons and armory, and resource loot after you win. Level up your gladiators with over a hundred sets of skills and polish your strategies in 7 classes!

▲ Activate your special skill when you feel like the enemy is gaining the upper hand.
