What video game is this?

It had a joystick you could rotate to make the hero’s shield go up and down. He was just walking slowly from the left to the right, full body, and the other button was for his sword. The shield could be put to low block, middle or high. Various flying weapons and fireballs would come whizzing at you and if you got hit you’d lose a bit of gladiator-type armor.

It was called…wait for it… “Gladiator”

Since this is about video games, I moved it from “Got Cite?” to “The Lame Room”

Was it The one that if you moved the shield up and down fast enough it became a glowing arc that blocked everything?

And eventually you walked around in your underwear?

Apparently. Perv that I was, I kept trying to get the female’s top to come off.
