Been frustrated behind the wheel lately? Perhaps someone cut you off on the 
highway last week? Instead of anger management classes, may we suggest a 
sleek speed missle or a homing mortar with a 100-foot blast radius to reduce 
your vehicular problems to smoking heaps of shrapnel?

Welcome once again to our twisted world where the drivers are insane, the 
explosions apocalyptic and the weapons hard core. As the ultimate automobile 
combat simulation for the PlayStation game console, Twisted Metal III 
features ten all new explosive battlegrounds including Hollywood, Hangar 18, 
Washington D.C. and Egypt. You can also drive one of fourteen revved-up, 
fully armed vehicles, including old favorites like Thumper, Roadkill, and 
that poor old sap Axel, as well as deadly hooligans like Firestarter, Club 
Kid and Flower Power. and if you're lucky, maybe Sweet Tooth will toss you 
an ice cream sandwich before he blows your wheels to smithereens.

Now get out on the battleground and make your momma proud.

Game Views

You can alter your driving view during gameplay by pressing the SELECT 
button or choosing CAMERA from the Pause Menu to access four different game 
views in a 1-player game: IN CAR, CLOSE, MEDIUM and FAR.

In a 2-player game, you can change the split screen view from vertical to 
horizontal at the Pause Menu. You can also choose from three different quad 
screen setups.

In a 3 or 4-player game, the game view is a quad screen setup.

Difficulty Level

There are three different difficulty levels you can choose from,    they 
consist of:
Cream Puff(the easiest), Twisted Metal(average difficulty) or
Pure Lunacy(the hardest).


The tournament consists of and eight level game. To clear a level you must 
destroy all opponent vehicles. There are teo different ways to play a 

CPU ALLY: Lets you play with a computer-assisted ally to help you annihilate 
your competitors. You will not see ending movies when using CPU Ally.

POOL LIVES: Lets you share your total number of lives with you co-op player. 
When either player dies, the collective number of lives decreases.


A deathmatch is a 1 through 4-player game. You fight head-to-head against 
other players, but you can also have other enemy cars join you in the 
battle. A deathmatch ends when one player successfully destroys all other 
player vehicles, after which the match resets for another battle.


You are awarded a password once you complete a level in a Tournament mode 
(you can press START to pause the game and view the password for that 
level). To enter a Password, sekect PASSWORD from the Main Menu. Then enter 
the Password.


There a total of ten new battlegrounds to choose from (two in which you have 
to unlock). They include: Hollywood, Washington D.C. Hangar 18, North Pole, 
London, Tokyo, Egypt, and Calypso's Blimp. I won't name the other two. You 
have to find out for yourself or cheat with a code from the best cheat site 
on the Internet, Cheat Code Central.
