++ 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
proper credit is given to its author, The IceMaster.  You may not distribute
this document in printed or electronic form for any profit, unless you have
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:
                  __                                   __
               __|  |__                Start     __   |__|
         Left |__    __| Right         ====     |__| Attack (A)
                 |__|           ====           Interact (B)
                 Down         Special

++ 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:

Opponent in any position
     MOVE                   YOUR SITUATION                  BUTTON(s)

 Flying Leg Drop*      Standing on Top Turnbuckle         Attack + Right
  * These moves can be used to knock down an opponent if he's standing.

Opponent is inside the ring
     To Climb out: Stand next to the ropes and tap the direction toward them
     and press Interact.
     To Climb back In: Stand next to the apron, hold Interact + Up.
Opponent is outside already
     To Climb out: Stand next to the ropes, hold Interact + Down.
     To Climb back In: Stand next to the apron, hold Interact + Up.
 Note: You can throw an opponent out with some moves such as suplexes.

 Elbow Lariat              Outside the Ring              Interact + Down

     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

     In order to tag your partner, press Interact.

     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 .
