Theatre of Pain is a Mortal Kombat-esque fighting game featuring characters and settings drawn from Roman history and mythology.

It features high-resolution SVGA rendered sprites and backgrounds, as did Mirage's previous fighting game, Rise Of The Robots.

It uses a six-button layout, with weak, medium, and strong punches/slashes and kicks. There are both single and two-player modes.
