Ancient Arenas is a cutting-edge 3D "deathmatch" style
first person shooter. Battle your way through several levels in
a 'tournament style' competition of armed combat.
You progress from level to level by defeating a series of opponents
in this competition of armed combat. Scattered around each level
are weapons, ammunition, health packs, armour and various other
power-ups that can be picked up and used by you and your opponents
alike. Be sure to collect armour and health packs to protect yourself
from enemy fire and heal your injuries. Collecting weapons will
improve your combat effectiveness and top up your ammunition supplies.
Game Controls :
Use the [arrow keys] to move and rotate. Hold down the [z] while
pressing [left arrow] or [right arrow] to step sideways, as opposed
to rotating ( in other words, [z] is the strafe key). Press [space
bar] to fire your current weapon, and press the [number keys 1-5]
to select a weapon.
Press [Esc] at any time to open the 'Options Menu' (this also
pauses the game).
Collecting weapons and power-ups that are scattered throughout
the levels is essential to your success. Below is a list of items
that can be collected to aid you in the tournament.
A highly compact machine pistol with a high rate of fire.

accuracy and high rate of fire.
Effective over short and medium
ranges, somewhat slow rate of fire.
