World and Empire
There are three civilizations in TZAR - the European, the Asian and the Arabian. They have some features in common, while some are unique. All buildings and units bear the characteristics of their civilization. All civilizations are carefully balanced in order to take full advantage of their distinguishing features and levels of technological mastery.
Choose Your Destiny
There are many ways to build an empire. Technology is the main driving force that determines the rise and fall of a civilization. It is a key factor for survival, expansion and dominance over less advanced cultures. New buildings, units and technology become available as you advance through the game. The various types of technology form a complicated structure called the Technology Tree. It shows the technological paths you can pursue in TZAR. Every structure has its uniqueplace in creating a powerful kingdom.
Fighting the World
Most of the units - peasants, military units, ships, siege weapons etc. - can be produced in the buildings. To produce a unit, the player must have achieved the adequate amount of resources and technology. Different units will require different resources. Wizards or priests can spawn units. Each spawned creature costs a certain amount of manna. Certain creatures require the existence of a particular technology. Manna is a parameter of wizards or priests. The player can name the best units and make them heroes. Each unit has its own attack, defense and health parameters. The units can gain experience in combat.
