I. Introduction

The unholy war is an action/stratgey game from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos 
interactive. At first glance it doesn't seem all that impressive, so I was 
reluctant to purchase it. But I was always taught never to judge a book by its 
cover. So I bought it. Well I must say that I like it. The Mayhem mode is fun if 
your not into that strategy thing, and the Strategy mode is fun if you want more 
of a challenge. If you haven't guessed already this is my first FAQ. Well on 
with the FAQ ^_^!

III. Modes Of Play

The Unholy War is divided into two type of games. Mode one is Mayhem mode, which 
is just a one-on-one battle between you and the computer or another human 
player. Mode two is Strategy mode, which is a strategic battle where the two 
forces clash in campaigns to capture bases. During this mode Mayhem mode will 
come up when two warriors fight over the same hex. There are some different 
options in each mode. But good for you I have laid them all out for you! ( gee 
aren't I so nice ^_^ )

Mayhem Mode

The First thing you do is select your team. Here are all the options.

Note: Player 1 is always on the left and Player 2/Computer is always on 
	the right.

Player 1		Player 2/Easy AI/Normal AI/Hard AI
--------		----------------------------------

Teknos		Arcane
Arcane		Teknos
Teknos		Teknos
Arcane		Arcane
All			All     *this is both sides (Teknos and Arcane)
Arcane		All
Teknos		All
All			Arcane
All			Teknos

Once that is done you'll Select your BattleField.

Here are your choices:

1. Cycle Levels
2. Juicer
3. Toxic Dump
4. Proving Ground
5. The Hive
6. The Depths
7. Water Hole
8. High Temple
9. Random Level
10. The Lab
11. Factory
12. Steel Hallway
13. Cenotaph
14. Desert Ruins
15. The Volcano
16. Mysic Glen
	1     2     3      4      5      6      7     8

	9     10    11     12     13     14     15    16

That's how it looks like on the screen.

Once your in the game you'll need to choose what warrior you want to use. Then 
the match will begin. In the Upper Left corner of the screen is a small picture 
of your warrior. The red bar is your health and the yellow bar is your energy 
for your special powers. Below your yellow bar are the buttons that corrospond 
to your powers (ie for the magus the triangle button is for his stalking birds 
power). Once the button is lit you can use the power. 

Strategy Mode

The first thing you do here is SET WAR (ie choose the battlefield you want to 
fight on). There are 12 battlefields.

1. Crater Lake    2. Mount Altus 3. Great Desert    4. The Dead Lands
5. River Crossing 6. Twin Keeps  7. The Breeders    8. The Mine
9. The Siege     10. The Crater 11. The Great Void 12. Kenai

Next you set the players.

Teknos		Arcane
------		------
Player 1		Player 1
Easy AI		Player 2
Normal AI		Easy AI
Hard AI		Normal AI
			Hard AI

Those are all the options that are available. 

Note: you can't have 2 player 1's (DUH!! ^_^)

V. Power ups

What game would be complete without powerups. Just pick one up and super charge 
your warrior! When a power up is shows up and the battlefield an arrow with 
point to it. Not all the power ups will be battlefield at one time, what fun 
would that be ^_^! I'll do my best to describe them for ya...

1. Health - Raises Health - looks like an anhk

2. Speed - Increases Speed, temporaily - looks like a ball with a 	     	     
smaller ball rotating around it.

3. Super Jump - Increases jump altitude for a short time. Flying 		    	
	    characters rise more quickly. - looks like a ball that                 
		    moves vertically.

4. Engery Jolt - No energy loss when you use a weapon; lasts for a short 	
	     time. - looks like a ball with an aura.

5. Invincibility - Warrior is indestructible for a short time. - Looks 		
	 like a ball with a very bright aura.
