Gladiators: Survival in Rome is a survival action RPG made by Colossi Games for Android and iOS where you play as a fugitive of the Roman army who goes on a quest to rescue survivors and rebuild a city.
It’s a complicated game no doubt and newer players will definitely be overwhelmed, but these tips and tricks will certainly help them get better.
Focus on story quests
Gladiators: Survival in Rome has story quests. These quests are extremely vital for various reasons: Firstly, they will take you across the entire world of the game, and in the process discover most if not all of the map.
Secondly, laying through them will allow you to discover other side quests, rewarding you with useful items and resources. Lastly, doing them will teach you more about the world and characters, immersing you more in the game.
Don’t forget to repair your equipment
As in any survival game, Gladiators: Survival in Rome also has weapons and tools durability because of which the gear you use will degrade the more you use them and eventually break. At this point, they will become significantly less effective and thus cost you more energy.
The last thing you would want to happen is for your gear to break after only a short while of adventuring. So, make sure to visit a repair table in your village and repair your gear before you head out into the wild. Additionally, it’s a good idea to have an extra weapon and tool in your inventory as a backup for such situations.
During your travels and adventures in Gladiators: Survival in Rome, you will eventually come across survivors you can save and take back to your village.
These survivors can be of use once you build huts for them, after which they can be recruited to do tasks such as cutting wood and hunting. This will essentially give you free wood and meat.
While, the quantity of said resources is rather low, getting a few extra for free is convenient.
Manage your energy
Energy in Gladiators: Survival in Rome is used to perform actions which means you need it for everything, making it one of, if not the most important resource in the game.
Every time you spend energy you will gain XP. This is great until you realize you only get a limited amount of energy to spend every day.
For starters, food like cooked meat and mushrooms restore some of your energy; the former replenishes 20 energy and the latter replenishes only 1.
You can also watch ads that will replenish your energy by 20, however, this can only be done 5 times every day. There is also a mini-game you can play every day which will usually replenish your entire energy bar, so make sure to play that only when you’re out of or close to running out.
Upgrading gear in Gladiators: Survival in Rome costs gold, and while it isn’t hard to come by, it certainly isn’t easy to earn.
So make sure to only upgrade gear that you know will be useful in the future. Upgrading level 1 items is pretty useless as you will eventually come across higher-level gear without upgrading anything.
Know when to back off
This is perhaps the best advice to follow in Gladiators: Survival in Rome and survival games in general as death has consequences, which in this case means you will drop all your inventory and will return to your village.
While you can journey back to the place where you previously died and attempt to retrieve your lost items, it can be difficult and sometimes outright impossible to do so if the area you died in is heavily guarded by difficult enemies.
So, don’t be ashamed of backing out of fights if it’s too much for you to handle.
