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
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
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
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

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
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 these objectives.
