In Brief:
Arena Battle is exactly as the title says, an arena battler, where you place your soldiers on the battlefield then press the start button for the battle to proceed with no more input from you until the battle is finished. If you are successful, you move on to the next level, if not you start the level again.

You can see a video of game play up to level 4 HERE
The Game:
You start by placing your army until you run out of funds, that at the start of the game is limited to 10 gold and a selection of two soldiers; a shooter (of magic) and an ogre melee battler. Each character costs 2 gold, so you can place five pieces on the first battle arena.

Progressing to level 2 opens up a new piece that has no attack abilities, but slows enemy movement by 2. Level four adds a further piece called a bull that does area damage and is harder to kill. Each successive level also adds a small amount of extra gold from the previous level. Army pieces do not carry forwards to the next level.

More soldiers are added as you progress, the next one at level 9 called a drummer that does a lot more damage compared to the other pieces in the arena. Other pieces are added later, but no information is given about these. Enemy combatants are randomly placed on the battlefield. Each time you replay the same level, they will be positioned differently.

To exit the game, press Esc which brings up a menu that takes you to the main menu, where you can exit the game. A quicker way to exit is to press Alt+F4. Progress is saved, but if you click on New game any progress is overwritten.

Conclusion:
Arena Battle is a simple top down game with retro graphics that has little to keep you entertained for more than a short break; so I would say, this is an ideal coffee break game, but not something I would play for extended periods. The early stages of the game are relatively easy with only two losses between level one to fifteen. I doubt I'll play this again. We had a similar game some months ago that I've already forgotten the name of.

When restarting the game, it always defaults to full screen mode.
Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 62 antimalware engines. You can see the scan HERE.

The games seems to run fine for the first time after the installation program starts the game but if I exit the program and then try to restart it, I see a rectangle box briefly and then it closes and the opens a web page tab for the toomkygames web site. If I re-install, it does the same thing.

Chet Morton, Sorry folks. The game I was having trouble with was Goblin Defenders an earlier give away. I fixed it with messing around with the compatibility settings in Windows 10 shortcut.

Chet Morton,

Glad you got it working. Compatibility mode really helps sometimes. :)

Who doesnt like a good strategy arena battler? Enemy combatants are randomly placed on the battlefield, and using your limited gold you hire soldiers to vanquish them all but do not actually do the fighting, just watch how your strategy played out as the one making decisions. Initially in the first level there are 5 enemies but clicking them gives no information on their abilities, background, or any other info as to why they exist. 10 gold and a choice of a ogre that fights up close (melee) or a wizard that shoots magic from a distance and additional soldier types are added as you progress. The cost for the unit is in the lower left in yellow so for example at 2 cost each you can place 5 of your soldiers in the first level. Clicking these soldier types gives more information such as you will notice the distance fighters have less hit points (health) and so they will need to be out of the way of attack - hence a bit of strategy.

As it stands now, generally the idea of this type of game is always popular with fantasy theme always has alot of potential and retro style graphics or can be done with dinosaurs, robots, mechs etc if the gameplay were to be worked out... and heres where the game needs much work. Since your not actually fighting, watching the battle here is too fast to see whats going on and not that enjoyable due to that and didnt really entice me to want to play later levels. Sounds in the attacks are the same. Enemy pieces of the ogre look identical to your ogre causing confusion as I thought at first my ogres were brought forward from a prior level but your soldiers do not carry forwards to the next level. Need to slow things down so the battle can be enjoyed to watch it play out, add some effects for deaths, attacks, more types of units, perhaps traps.

If you really want to feel like a Roman emperor, judge your fighters based on how bravely they fought. If you think they’re not worthy, open a piston floor below them and drop them in lava - as I'm doing with this game and deleting it but hopefully the next of kin will learn and improve. Rating: D

Today's game is simply place your fighters on the table and hope for the best I suppose :)

One thing you will need to do is pay attention to the play mechanics a bit and understand what things do. When you hover your mouse over the Wizard, etc, it shows you the attacks or land effects it's capable of and also the cost of gold to set it out that is.

You don't have to use all your gold in one turn as the start button is always highlighted, if you hit start before placing fighters on the screen its an immediate game over.

I suppose this can lead to different ways of clearing a level but I'm almost fairly certain that you'll need all the help you can get with your gold. Good luck with Level 3 :)

Because of the simplicity of this game, it's easy for anyone to pickup and play this little gem even if you don't like this genre. It's a coffee break item for sure.
