                              ==[ THE STORY ]==

                Billions of years ago, a being from a distant
                galaxy  was  transporting a precious cargo of
                life giving Ore.   The turbulent formation of
                our  solar  system  caused his ship to crash,
                and scattered The Ore over the molten surface
                               of planet earth.

                Through the millennia, ten  humans  came into
                contact with  The  Ore  and  were transformed
                         into super-evolved warriors.

                            These are the WAR GODS!

                            /.] Tips and Tricks [.\

   Blocking Throws:
     To Block a Throw hold Back or Down Back. Just Block doesn't Block a
     throw.  So if you're playing someone who keeps throwing, hold DB+BL
     and counter attack.

   Jump Into Combo:
     You can jumpkick or punch into combos now much easier, the extra
     damage is usually about 10-15% more, so it's a GREAT tactic.

   If You Slide, You Will Win:
     The 3D Slide is your key to victory against all players, especially
     newbies that haven't even touched the 3D Button yet.

   Evasive Get Up and Attacks:
     Use the Evasive Get Up and Get Up Attack a lot to surprise your
     opponents. Use the Evasive Get Up Attack when someone is doing the
     Unblockable Pounce Attack on you, and then Run up and combo them
     quick, or if they're running or walking towards you, use the Get Up
     Attack to knock them down and score some damage.

   The Shove is Useful:
     Whenever your opponent is just sitting around blocking run up and shove
     them, and then start a combo or do a special move. Since the Shove is
     unblockable, they are left vulnerable and you can start your combo.


                           --====] AHAU KIN [====--

[.\ STORY LINE /.]
          In a vision, AHAU KIN, an evil high priest, learned that
       untold power lay at the bottom of his tribe's sacrificial well.
          One by one, he sent his slaves to their death diving to
                                reach The Ore.
        Finally, overwhelmed with desire, he plunged to the well's
                         depths and retrieved The Ore.

  Description: Ahau Kin raises an altar to appear behind his

        on the blood-stained surface, and he jumps on top of
        them, keeping them "pinned" down.  The opponent struggles
        to escape, but Ahau Kin shows no mercy and shoves his
        hand into their chest. After he moves his hand around
        inside their torso for a moment, he yanks out the beating
        heart of his opposing War God. He holds the heart
        up high, then lowers it after a brief pause and takes a
        large bite out of it, as the victim drops from conciousness
        with a hole on their chest.
        (It's a stone heart if the victim is Tak, an artificial one
        leaking electricity if it's Cy-5, and a human heart squirting
        blood of it's anyone else.)

                                 entered.
          His body was destoyed by The Ore, but his soul is cursed

  Description: Voodoo takes out a doll replica of his opponent.

        its stomach, causing the victim's abdominal area to
        split open. From the hole comes their liver, while their
        intestines uncoil with blood madly squirting from the
        large opening.

[.\ STORY LINE /.]
                 Government officials were worried than an
           experiment to merge nuclear weapons with The Ore was
        in jeopardy. They sent their top operative to investigate.
                When he arrived at the research center, the
           building exploded, covering his body with fragments
                              of The Ore
                 The soldier was tranformed into WARHEAD,
                        a super-human fighter.

  Description: Warhead crouches down and radios his backup. Nukes are
        then dropped upon the unsuspecting victim, eventually blowing
        them to oblivion. As the mushroom cloud floats away, all that
        remains is a crater where the victim stood.


                             --====] GROX [====--

[.\ TIPS AGAINST AI /.]
1.) Usually, repeated up-forward flying kicks to the head from up close
    will work against him.
2.) When he jumps 3D Slide or walk back (if near center) and counter with
    a trap or projectile.
3.) Sometimes Grox takes block damage from some attacks, so find those
    and use them to your advantage.
4.) When he jumps at you Uppercut him when he is above you.

                             --====] EXOR [====--

[.\ TIPS AGAINST AI /.]
1.) If you want to be cheap, use Anubis and teleport whenever possible.
    In lower difficulties, this shouldn't be a problem; if he blocks,
    jump back, teleport again.
2.) Don't jump forward or back, he'll then EASILY get you with his lasers
    and his trap.
3.) If you sit there blocking he'll use his telekinetic throw.
4.) He has weaknesses to some moves, find them and use them often.
5.) Traps are useless against him.
6.) 3D Slide and fire a projectile to hit a BIT easier.
7.) Wait for his Arial Ore Energy shot, run up and uppercut. This will work
    good if you time it right so he doesn't get you when you're close.

                           ==[ COMBO TECHNIQUES ]==

There are 2 main types of combos in War Gods:

1) Predefined combos are a lot like combos from KI and MK3 combined. To start
 one, you hit with B, F, followed by HP (or HK if you're Ahau Kin or Cy-5),
 this usually gets 2 auto chained hits.  Complete ones are listed in this
 document with B, F, and so on, however, you MAY substitute B, F, with F, F.
 These combos also require PRECISE timing, so watch your character for signs
 of when the next button should be pressed. After you do a predefined combo
 completely, Exor will announce "COMBO!" and it displays this on screen:

 8 Hit
