Ougon no Shiro was released in March 1986 in Japan.

The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Castle of Gold'.

This version has a nudity feature not present in "Gladiator". See 'Tips and Tricks' section for more information, the female warrior Irene is shown with bare breasts (In Gladiator she still wears a bikini top when defeated this way).

This game is known outside Japan as "Gladiator".


* If you move fast UP and DOWN for a while you should activate a shield.

* How to strip Irene's clothes off : After breaking her sword, if her shield is not entirely broken, break it. Irene, unlike the other characters, has TWO suits of armor. DO NOT KILL HER! Try to remove as many parts of the armor as you can, throwing careful attacks. Focus especially on her chest-plate and on the... uh...'thigh-plate'?. After you've done that, defeat her BY ATTACKING HER LEGS. She will fall on her knees, with her sword on her hands against her chest. When you pass her, she extends her arms towards you and... HELLO!
