Game Instructions (scroll down to play)
Welcome to WarZone3 - World War 2 Edition., and advanced 3D tank
simulation game, set during some of the most critical European
and Russian battles of the Second World War.Your objective in
WarZone3 - WWII Edition, is to battle your way through as many
missions as possible, starting on D-day in Normandy France as
part of the British 6th Airborne, across Western Europe to Holland
as part of the US First Army, and then towards Moscow and Stalingrad
with the Russian Red Army.
Each level is set during a different time period/location during
the war, and consists of several missions which much be completed
successfully in order to progress to the next level.There is a
short briefing before each mission, which outlines the mission's
objectives, provides operational background, and gives warning
as to the amount and type of resistance you can expect to face.
During combat, you can check the top right hand corner of the
screen for your currrent mission completion criteria. Upon successfull
completion of a mission, you will be debriefed, given statistics
about your performance, and then prep'ed for your next mission.
Pay close attention to you mission briefings, these occur before
you are sent out on your mission, and they will highlight your
mission objectives. Failure to complete you mission successfully
will end your game. The mission briefing stage will also notify
you of any special combat conditions that you need to be aware
of during your mission (ie the presence of friendly tanks in the
area, special mission objectives on radar, visibility reports
The missions take place over five distinct combat areas and time
periods (levels). You must work your way through each level before
progressing to the next. The first level is set in Normandy France
during and immediately after the events of D-day (June 6 1944).
You must start here if this is your first time playing WarZone3-WWII.
This level consists of 5 missions, and upon successfull completion
of these, the next level will be unlocked, and you will be allowed
to progress on to new missions. You will also be given a level
access password (check your mission de-briefing at the end of
the 5mission). You can use this level access password to continue
from the same point, the next time you visit the website and play
WarZone3-WWII. Simply type in a level unlock password during the
level selection screen, and then click that level to begin playing.
Game Controls :
Maneuvering your tank is pretty straightforward, use the arrow
keys to steer and drive the tank. Use the 't' and 'e' keys to
rotate your gun turret clockwise and counter clockwise respectively.
Pressing the 'r' key will cause your gun turret to re-center itself
automatically. Use the [space bar] bar to fire your weapon. Your
weapon will automatically reload itself after firing a round.
Press 'c' to change the camera distance.
Press [Esc] at any time to open the 'Options Menu' (this also
pauses the game). Within the Options menu, you can alter the graphic
detail (to improve performance on slower machines), toggle the
sound on/off, amongst other things.
During gameplay, the bottom half of the screen will display information
about your tank (bottom left) and a radar (bottom right). For
information about your radar see the section below. The bottom
left hand corner of the screen displays information about your
tank in the form of power meters. This provides data about your
tank's armour (when this reaches zero, your tank will be destroyed
and your game will end), your tank's canon (indicates whether
your canon is reloading or not, a full bar indicates readyiness
to fire), your tank's current speed, as well as the status of
any power-ups that may be in effect (if a temporary power-up is
in effect, the power bar indicates the time to expiration). Additionally,
on some missions, you may be ordered to defend key positions from
enemy attack. During these types of missions, a power bar labeled
'objective' will indicate how close that objective is too being
destroyed (and thus mission failure).
During combat, you will see a radar panel in the bottom right
hand corner of the screen.This will enable you to locate enemies
and allys, and navigate around obstacles etc.. Items depicted
on the radar screen can be identified by the following scheme
buildings, civilian vehicles, trees etc..
available 'power up'
Sometimes a destroyed enemy tank will leave behind a power-up.
Collecting these power-ups will increase the effectiveness of
your tank, and improve your chances of success. Power-ups appear
on your radar as a blue 'P' shape, and on the main display as
a spinning blue 'P' (bobbing up and down). Collect these power-ups
by driving your tank into them. Some power-ups are effective over
a limited period of time (a timer appear will appear in the bottom
left hand corner of the screen indicating how long the power-up
has before expiring). Below is a brief summary of some of the
power-ups you may encounter in the game :
Instantly repairs some or all of your damaged armour.
Armour Piercing Shells
Temporarily replaces all your ammunition with armour piercing
shells. Each of these shots will destroy any target with
a single hit, regardless of it's size or armour strength.
||Temporarily makes your canon
reload twice as fast, effectively doubling your rate of fire.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to quickly
fire a shot behind you, turning both your tank and your turret
simultaneously in the same direction will allow you to aim behind
yourself much faster.
Make use of your separately rotatable turret. Rotating your turret
perpendicular to your tank's direction will enable you to fire
at targets while 'side stepping' their return fire.
Take your target's movement direction and speed into account
when aiming shots at them. Particularly for long range targets,
aiming towards their direction of movement will increase your
chance of a hit.
On some mission you will be required to protect or attack specific
targets (other than enemy tanks). Focus all your attention on
