++ Introduction ++
++++++++++++++++++

Welcome to the WWF War Zone Text FAQ for Nintendo GameBoy. The latest
revision of this FAQ can be found at WWF War Zone Web Coverage located at
http://warzone.sports-gaming.com -- since July 6th 1997, the leading source
of WWF War Zone news and information on the internet.
The information contained in this document may be freely used so long as

received The IceMaster's full consent to do so.

Why are British Bulldog, and Ahmed Johnson in the game?
WWF War Zone's development began between late 1996 and early 1997, long
before any of these two wrestlers left the World Wrestling Federation.

Why is Dustin Runnels still Goldust?
By the time Goldust became Dustin Runnels by burning the Goldust outfit and
doing a "shoot" segment, WWF War Zone was already in the process of being
finalized. It was way too late to change the name text all through the
game, re-film the movies of Goldust making challenges and comments, etc.

++++++++++++++
++ Controls ++
++++++++++++++

Fans of fighting games as well as wrestling games will need a little
practice before they can get used to the control system in the GameBoy
version of WWF War Zone. The moves system is based on fixed directions (ie.
left is ALWAYS left, no matter which way you're facing, it's NOT like a
fighting game).

Default Configuration:
Up
__ __
__| |__ Start __ |__|
Left |__ __| Right ==== |__| Attack (A)
|__| ==== Interact (B)
Down Special
(Select)

+++++++++++++++
++ The Moves ++
+++++++++++++++

Most of the moves, besides the few basic ones, are done by holding a
button and pressing a direction. The direction is what triggers the move,
not the button. For example, you hold Attack and press Up to do a frog
splash when you're standing on the top turnbuckle. This is awkward at first
and takes some getting used to.
The following moves can be done by anyone, and are listed in the game's
manual. There are a few minor errors in the way the moves are named in the
manual, so here's a list for your reference:

BASIC MOVES
===========
Opponent Standing

and press Interact.

Opponent is outside already

Note: You can throw an opponent out with some moves such as suplexes.

MOVE YOUR SITUATION BUTTON(s)
Elbow Drop Outside the Ring Attack + Down
Elbow Lariat Outside the Ring Interact + Down


GRAPPLED INTO TIE-UP
====================
When you have control of your opponent in a grapple, it's considered a
"tie-up". Once you have him in a tie-up, the following moves can be done:
Break Tie-Up Rapid Left/Right
Kick to Stomach Up
Headbutt Left
Eye Rake Right
Vertical Suplex Attack + Up
Body Slam Attack + Left
Power Slam Attack + Right
Irish Whip Interact + Left or Right

You can also grapple from behind. The following moves can be done:
Atomic Drop Left, Right, or Up
Back Suplex Attack + Left, Right, or Up


TAG PARTNER
===========
In order to tag your partner, press Interact.


FINISHING MOVES
===============
Every wrestler has his finisher in War Zone GameBoy. All of them are
their real ones except for Owen Hart (he uses a Spinning Heel Kick instead of
the Sharpshooter). Finishers are done by holding Special and pressing THREE
directions in sequence. All of them are done in a Tie-Up except for
Mankind's Mandible Claw (which is done over a fallen opponent).


++++++++++++++++++++
++ The SuperStars ++
++++++++++++++++++++

The finishers are NOT listed in the manual, I've found each of them
myself and listed them in each of the wrestlers' own sections below. Again,
the directions are NOT relative to your position. Left is ALWAYS left, and
right is ALWAYS right, it doesn't matter which way you're facing.
If you would like to use these finishers in your own list of any kind,
please give credit to "The IceMaster" at .
