What INSPIRED this game?
I was inspired by the roman gladiators and their fights and I was also inspired by a top-down zombie shooter game that I saw, but have forgotten the name to. I just mixed these two together to make the game

Neat arena game. I like the concept, the highest score I got was 21 kills haha. Edit: Played it some more, it seems that the enemies cubes can push the player and themselves out of the play area. Maybe something to look into.

LOL, I never played a "top-down shooter" with melee combat before! This is actually quite fun and unique. I had a good time. There are certainly things that could use tweaking though. Enemies spawn way too quickly (or perhaps more numerously, I'm not sure what triggers they're spawning) and player movement feels very awkward at times, since the speed is quite variable. However, the core combat is pretty good.
