Glatorian Arena, or GA, is a 3D online fighting game released on February 25, 2009, produced by Serious Games Interactive. As of March 11, the game was made available for download on BIONICLE.com. The web-based version requires the Unity3D plugin, a third-party software item which can be downloaded from a link on BIONICLE.com. A new version of the game, Glatorian Arena 2, was released on September 16, 2009 utilizing characters that appear in mid-2009 sets.

Gameplay

Navigation Area

The area where the player starts off is the main navigation area. Here, the player is allowed to choose and upgrade the select Glatorian, view his status for each character, see his awards list, or go to one of the three other areas. The areas where the player can upgrade are Strength, Toughness, Agility, and Mind.

  • Strength increases power.
  • Toughness increases attack resistance.
  • Agility increases the parry and healing ability.
  • Mind decreases time needed to charge the Thornax, and increases its power.

Challenge Game

An arena match between Tarix and Gresh

The core gameplay is one-on-one, 3D, hand-to-hand combat fighting in the Arena Magna during the Great Tournament. In order to win the fight, the player must reduce the opponent's health to zero. The health gear will shift to a lower number if the health bar is completely depleted. In each match three Thornax can be fired. After matches, a statistics sheet is displayed detailing the Glatorian's gains and a match summary.

There are five different Glatorian Leagues - Rookie, Veteran, Copper, Silver, and Golden. The player has to work through each, battling tougher opponents, until finally, he has become the Glatorian champion. Each of these leagues can be played with the different characters, and progress is tracked individually for each one. The player starts out as Gresh and after completing leagues, more characters are unlocked. Each character has his own unique fighting style.

Controls

  • X - Light attack which is quick but deals little damage.
  • C - Heavy attack which is powerful but requires a few seconds.
  • V - Thornax, which is the most powerful attack depending on how much it is charged. The charge is represented by a blue meter.
  • Space Bar - Parrying and healing.

Spikeball Game

There is an additional "Spikeball" game in which the player, as Gresh, is paired with a likeness of the Glatorian and faces off against two Skrall. The goal of the game is to get the ball in the other team's goal to score a point. The matches are one minute long.

Controls

  • X - Pass the ball and switch player.
  • Space Bar - Shoot and steal the ball, which initiates a tug-of-war like game. Repeatedly pressing space until the bar reaches green will allow the player to possess the ball. However, if it reaches red, the ball is lost to the Skrall.

The Outskirt Area

The player can also travel to the outside of the arena to talk with several Agori. The only Agori the player can initially talk to are Raanu, Atakus, Tarduk, Berix, Metus, and a Zesk. There are a selection of topics that the player can choose from to discuss with each Agori, save for the antisocial Zesk, who wishes to be left alone. The mouse is used to navigate the area.
