Zone of War comprises the best of two worlds - the element of strategy building and development and the fun factor of a very intense war zone action game with 14 hectic levels. The idea is very simple; you are in charge of a fortress defense area and you are a first class Private. If you win a battle, you earn a promotion from Sergeant all the way up to an army General. But it takes several intense battles to get even reach the rank of Lieutenant! You can see your rank in the “Achievements” menu section. You have two machine guns – small and heavy. The smaller one has a faster turn and is mostly fit to defeat infantry troops. The heavy gun can be upgraded after every battle. Each battle you win earns you 3 points that can be used to upgrade your heavy gun. Good luck Soldier!
Upgrade Definitions: Damage – how much damage each of your shots create, Firespeed – how fast your guns shoot, Defense – how immune your fortress is to opponent attacks, and Mobility – how fast your guns can be turned one or the other direction. You can see Repair Base there as well (1 point is used for a full repair).
Tips: Keep one eye on the top left corner blue bar. It displays how much damage has been done to your fortress. It is a good idea to repair it once the bar is less than half blue, or else your defense system may get too weak during an attack and cause you to lose the battle. Try to upgrade your Damage and Firespeed in the beginning and then start sharing upgrade points for defense and mobility as the enemy attack gets heavier. This will save you from wasting precious points on “Base” repair in the beginning. Once the battle begins, concentrate on defeating heavy tanks and helicopters first as they inflict most of the damage on you. When the attack is getting too heavy for you, and you need some extra backup – you may call in Air Support by pressing the Spacebar button on your keyboard (There are 14 levels of play but air support can only be used 3 times in total).
Controls: To start shooting – left click and hold your computer mouse left button. The shooting direction is controlled using your mouse but don’t move it around too fast as your guns have a lag and cannot turn quickly. Aim by moving your mouse gradually from one target to the other. However, your small machine gun can turn very fast, and therefore you have a chance to take care of oncoming infantry while defeating the tanks at the same time. To call in Air Support, press Spacebar. If you need a break or to pause the game, press the Esc or 'P' key on your keyboard. Click the 'Resume' button to continue the battle.
