Arena of Skill is a Coco 3 arcade/D&D style game that was released as freeware in 1988 for the Coco 3 only. In the game, you build a character, with various physical characteristics, and then build up his/her's weapons and armor. Using hit points similiar to D&D, and also adding potions to the mix, you have to battle various challengers, gaining experience, strength, and money, so that you can afford to improve your characters weapons and armor. It also allows you to save multiple characters that you can choose from each time you play. In the actual battles, you use the joystick to combat your opponent. You can also create your own monsters to fight against.
