Back of Box - DOS (United States/Canada):
    Televisions most innovative sporting event, AMERICAN GLADIATORS is now bigger than life in this all-new home computer version. All the action, drama, and competitiveness, right down to the personalities of the real-life Gladiators have been captured from the show that the NEW YORK TIMES has called “...a video game come to life...”. Seven events including: THE WALL, THE JOUST, THE ASSAULT, HUMAN CANNONBALL, ATLASPHERE, POWERBALL and THE ELIMINATOR, all captured with digitized sound, and 256 color photography taken right from the television show. NITRO, ICE, LAZER, THUNDER, GOLD, TURBO, ZAP, LACE, BLAZE and GEMINI are here and ready to psyche you out of your game. Do you have the strength, speed and concentration to put them in their place?

    These Guys Mean Business...

    Two years ago the American Gladiators battled their way to the top of the television ratings charts and have been playing King Of The Hill ever since. Based on a unique concept where skilled contenders, chosen from rigorous tryouts, get a chance to compete against the American Gladiators for cash, prizes, and fame.

    Now GameTek adds to the phenomenon by giving NES players a chance to try their hand at doing battle with the weekend warriors in events including The Joust, Assault, Powerball, The Wall, Human Cannonball, and The Eliminator. Don't miss out on being part of America's most talked about weekend series.
