Spartacus gods of the arena
Spartacus: The Game
is a now-defunct online Facebook-based web game, developed by Large Animal Games.

It was followed by a the sequel, Spartacus: Vengeance The Game.


The player takes on the role of a Dominus of a Ludus, and is befriended by Lucretia, who assists the player in learning how to run and maintain their ludus.

The goal is to create winning gladiators, use their winnings to buy and maintain their weapons and armor, and to buy new gladiators who can fight more powerful opponents.

The main-world map of the game

Should the Gladiator win his or her fight, the winnings are based off of how difficult the fight was, and how they finish their opponent. If they lose, their Dominus (the player) must choose if the defeated gladiator should be allowed to live, if the defeated Gladiator fought well and pleased the crowd, the price to allow them to live is small, but Gladiators that lost the crowds favor will cost the Dominus a great deal of Hounor (see below) if they want to save them. If they are not saved, the Gladiator is killed and his equipment is lost.

Playable CharactersEdit

The games supported a variety of gladiators to choose from, with fighters hailing from lands such as Germania, Britania, Africa, and even ancient Asian lands. The cost for the gladiators generally ranged from in-game currency to Facebook credits, depending on the gladiator. Either way, gladiators from these special areas usually came with their own unique armor and accessories that indicated their culture, such as Shakka equipment for Africans, or Genji armor and samurai swords from Asia. 

In addition, characters from the Spartacus series were also playable in this game. such as Spartacus, Crixus, Gannicus, Varro, and Theokoles. While some gladiators, like Rhaskos and Hamilcar, could be attained through in-game currency, usually the majority of Spartacus gladiators used Facebook credit, meaning real-life money had to be spent to play as them. Occasionally, there came variations of the same character, such as the Thracian Spartacus or the early version of Crixus. While almost all characters are from the first season and prequel, eventually characters from Spartacus: Vengeance also appeared, such as The Egyptian.

Offline StatusEdit

From December 21, 2012, the game was officially removed from Facebook and put offline for good.
