    ++ 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

    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 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.
         MOVE                   YOUR SITUATION                  BUTTON(s)
     Elbow Drop                Outside the Ring               Attack + Down
     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 <warzone@icemaster.org>.
