Description of American Gladiators

A mini-games collection based on that Amercian TV show thingie of the same name, probably one of the dumbest things ever to hit the TV screen. The game was developed by Imagitec Design, designers of such popular games as The Humans series.

As I really hate all those TV show sports like Show Wrestling and this Gladiator stuff, I won't comment anymore on that. But the computer game is actually not that terrible after all. Probably because those grown-up guys and gals from the show are now just a collection of computer pixels. Not great, but as the various events are very unusual for computer games, American Gladiators is okay for a change. Probably a must-have for fans of the TV show, and worth a look to everyone else.

This game sucks. The DOSBox controls are awful and there's no way to change them. Assault takes a lot of luck, as the controls don't seem to work when you're following *exactly* how to pick up the damn weapon; Joust is nigh impossible to beat; Human Cannonball takes pure luck to even get the meters right as they fill very quickly; The Wall is impossible to climb accurately; and Powerball is super unfair as your opponent easily racks up points while you supposedly miss the easiest put-ins (that's how broken the controls are). The only event where I had a fair shot of winning was Atlasball, but even then, I found my cage getting stuck frequently at the top of the mounds. Unless you have a joystick to plug in, the keyboard never works well for this game.
