Arena is a visually striking hand painted magic-based first person shooter where you fight for your freedom against waves of monsters in a gladiatorial arena.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer when it was in Alpha, Arena is a lighthearted single-player arena shooter where you fight for your freedom after being locked up for using magic. Your magical abilities will certainly come in handy as the enemies come in many different forms and can quickly overwhelm you if you’re not careful. You start with a simple lighting spell, but as you progress you can purchase more powerful spells, such as missiles and plant friends. Which can greatly increase your chances of survival.
The visuals are fantastic and the whimsical audio design really makes you smile. Once you peer below the beautiful hand painted world of Arena though, you’ll notice that the combat is excellent too. It’s a very fast paced game with a nice variety of enemies and spells to use. It’s also very tough and requires real skill to tackle the later waves of enemies – and good luck with the final boss!
