Arena is a strategy game which the author states is based on a Commodore 64 game of the same name, although there's not much information about that original game available online. There IS a game called Chaos: The Battle of Wizards for the ZX Spectrum, and that game is cited by the similar game Morkin 2 as its inspiration, so maybe the author mis-remembered the platform he played it on. ANYWAYS! This game is a two to four player battle between wizards, who cast spells to attack their opponents or call forth magical beings to do battle. It's a turn-based game where you move your wizard and cast spells, and also direct your underling(s). The controls and gameplay are not very intuitive so you will definitely need to press the ? key to access in-game help and likely will need to reference ARENA.TXT for more details.
