The War Begins in
You recently purchased a Protovision action-strategy game
called WarGames, whose neatest feature is the ability to play against other
opponents in real-world scenarios at any time of the day or night. When you
started a new game, you encountered a flaw that connected you to a government
simulator in which all of the moves you made were echoed in the real world with
live ammunition, military vehicles and troops. This mistake could have happened
as a result of the recent top-secret work of Joshua Information Systems,
Protovision's parent company, to provide war strategy programs to the
Department of Defense. There must be some link somewhere...Your skill at
WarGames will have effects all over the world. You must stop the opposing WOPR
(War Operation Programmed Response) forces in a variety of missions before they
destroy the major cities and military sites. If you lose, you can kiss your
computer, that special someone and all your buddies goodbye. Good luck.
Twenty years after the WOPR computer almost started World
War III, it has grown further and learned more. It has concluded that a nuclear
exchange is now unlikely and ultimately inefficient, so more conventional
warfare must be used. Its goal is to stop all war across the globe with a
simple, logical notion: Destroy the entire human military machine, and war will
WarGames can be played from either side. Control the NORAD
(North American Air Defense Command) global forces to defend humanity from
WOPR's twisted logic and tyrannical desires. You can also take the reins of the
most technologically advanced force ever conceived as you control the WOPR
mechanized forces in the noble goal of saving humanity from itself.
