Z.A.R (or Zone of Artificial Resources) is a First Person Shooter developed by Auric Vision and published by 1C. The game was released February 1, 1998, and received very little attention.
In Z.A.R, the player must undertake a multitude of different missions, which involve either destroying or protecting various environmental objects. The player is free to move around the environment as they please, and will encounter hostile robots that must be either avoided or destroyed with a variety of different weapons. Occasionally, friendly AI companions will assist the player. The game takes place entirely in outdoor areas, which range from deserts to military bases.
