    WorldWar for the Palm OS is a turn based strategy game of global conquest based on the classic board game Risk. Try to capture continents for bonus armies which will help you in your end goal, to conquer the world.

    Each game can have up to 6 players, including any number of human or computer (with 3 levels of difficulty) players.

    How to Play

    From the menu tap on 'Start New Game.' and select the type of players. Players can be human, computer (easy, medium, hard) or none.

    When a new game starts, you have the oppurtunity to place extra armies on the countries that you own. You can see how many armies you have to place by looking on the Globe view. The number of armies still needing to be placed are listed in parentheses beside you total armies. An example is given below.

                  Armies to be placed
                      |
     Countries Owned  |       # Cards
                  |   |             |
         Player @ 4 6(5)            1
         Player # 7 7(0)            3
         Player $ 8 9(0)  Au        3
                |   |      |
            Symbol  |     Continents owned
                    |
                  Total Armies
    

    After the initial armies are placed, each player will place their alotted armies for this turn, attack, and finally moving armies between adjacent countries.

    You turn starts by placing your armies given to you for this turn.

    After you have placed your armies for this turn, you can then attack. To attack, you must have more then one army in the attacking country and the country you want to attack must be adjacent.

    If you sucessfully capture a country and have more then 4 armies left, you are given the oppertunity to move armies between the countries.

    After all attacking is done, you may move armies between adjacent countries that you own. This can only be done once per turn, and it will end you current turn.

    If you do not wish to move armies, tap the 'End' button in the lower right to end your current turn.

    You are given one card per turn if you successfully capture another country during that turn. Cards are worth armies if you have three of a kind or one of each of three types of cards. The cards are turned in at the beginning of your turn and you will receive the armies at that point.

    When you capture an opponents last country, eliminating them from the game, you are given all of the cards that they possesed. If this gives you enough cards to turn in for armies, you can do so at this time.

    Installation

    Double clicking on the .prc file should bring up to Palm install utility. Click done in this utility and the next time you HotSync the application will be installed.
