Arkadian Warriors is a hack-and-slash fantasy dungeon crawler blending arcade and RPG elements. Heroes battle their way through a dungeon filled with monsters, traps, and treasure, with the ultimate goal of defeating the Gorgon. These heroes can temporarily transform into huge beasts that provide increased battle capability. The beasts include a phoenix, a lion and a dragon, depending on the class. This state can be acquired by battling enemies, which slowly fills up a meter. Players can also level up and gain additional experience, spells or skills.
The different classes include Soldier, Archer and Sorcerer. Players can go through the dungeons alone or enter an online cooperative game. The game's main location is the town hub, where the nineteen different quests, leading to Gorgon's defeat, are received. The game's longevity is added to by dynamically generated dungeons, changing the layout every time.
