Blood & Glory is an action game similar to the Infinity Blade series where the player competes in gladiator tournaments in ancient Rome. The game is made up of a number of tournaments where the player fights other gladiators in one-on-one duels. The player has to block, dodge and parry the attacks before attacking when the enemy is off balance. This is done by swiping left and right across the screen. Combos can be used for extra damage. A special attack meter is filled by blocks, dodges and attacks. When full a powerful special attack can be unleashed.
Winning duels lead to experience being earned and the fighter will eventually level up. Skill points will then be received and can be spent to increase three stats: attack, block and health. The game is free-to-play and has in-game shop where items such as weapons, shields, armor, helmets and potions can be bought.
