The game is very nice, has funny melodies and looks great. It is a real
"must play this game" type.
The Sound : Not impressive when we talk about quality, but its the
funny little melodies which do the trick. Reminds to
circus-sounds or more like lemmings ][ sounds.
Graphics : Great, well drawn graphics. I think they just used about
20 to 30 colors (in 256-mode), but this game is not about
graphics, its about funplay.
Speed : Super, very fast scrolling of the screen in several
Playability : If you have a good mouse which is not too sensitive,
then it plays very well. The game aint too difficult, so
anyone can play it.
¦ ¦··02 Background Story···················································¦ ¦
THere was no background story supplyed. So lets make one up.
Your country has been invaded by enemy troops. As you are mr. Patriot
number one, you want to save your country. To do so you call up on a
army of recruits. You train them to become soldiers so you can send
a squad to the country to wipe out the enemies.
¦ ¦··03 Object of the game·················································¦ ¦
In this game you can lead an armie of several soldiers. You can send a
few of them (mostly 4 of them) to a mission. In this mission you must
succeed in 2 tasks. These are "kill all enemies" and "kill all enemy
buildings". Not very original, but they cover what the game is all
about. With the mouse you can send your troops as a squad or as individual
soldiers to attack the enemy. After you kill all enemies then the mission
is over. Some missions are divided in several phases. Each of them is in
the same scene as eachother. After you ended all phases the mission is over.
When the mission is over you get to see several screens, like :
a. The heroes of victory. Here you see you squad where they get promotion.
b. Casualties of war. A list of the soldiers you lost in this mission.
c. The starting screen. Here some new recruits are added to your army.
The recruits are all fresh with 0 points. The more the recruits
kill the more points they get. This will result in promotion in the here-
¦ ¦··04 Ingame Keys/Movement···············································¦ ¦
The game is divided in 2 parts :
a. The beginning screen, where you see a row of recruits which try to pass
through a door. Only a few of them can enter for a mission. Each mission
has its maxium of soldiers.
Each soldier has a kill-score, this indicates there experience. The more
experience the higher their rank.
A score is also displayed in the top-screen, with the HOME:AWAY option.
This is the total score.
The Save and the Restore options are clear enough for you (i hope).
The mountion is clean in the beginning of the game, but later on a few
gravestones will appear. Each of them is one of your lost soldiers. The
average soldiers are represented by a simple white cross and the officers
are displayed as a precious stone. The nicer the stone the higher the
rank of the soldier.
In the hero-part you can see the lost soldiers with their rank and their
In the squad part you can see the soldiers who are currently a part of
your team. If one of them get killed the squad will be added with other
soldiers (with are moved trough the recruit-door).
By clicking the mouse you can start the game with the squad.
b. In the game part you are on a certain area which is a part of a bigger
area. You can move on the land with the left mouse-button. Its also
possible to select the MAP to see the enemy buildings left and your
If you see an enemy you can kill him with the right mouse-button. To
activate a special power (grenade or rocket), you must press both
mouse-buttons at the same time.
In the top left you see a list of you members. You can select several
of them so they will split up. This way you can select your own little
groups in stead of using the entire team at once. This way you can use
the low ranks as "cannon fodder", sure thats the name of the game.
You can also select items from the inventory by just clicking at them.
This way you can decide how much grenates the team gets.
To activate the special power you must clock on the symbol (grenade
or rocket) and then you can use both mouse-buttons.
¦ ¦··05 Items & Objects····················································¦ ¦
Crate of grenades : 4 grenades.
Crate of Rockets : 4 rockets.
Snow Mobile : You can drive in it.
House : Enemy building.
Fuel tank : You can destroy it and all enemies around will die.

Soldier : Just a rifle.
Grenade thrower : Throws grenades
Soldier 2 : Has a machine gun.
Machine site : Posted at vital parts. Shoot very fast.
Rocket Launcers : Right, they shoot rockets.

¦ ¦··06 Hints······························································¦ ¦
Always split the team of in seperate soldiers. This way you can put your
team members at vital positions in the game. If you doesnt use a team, then
this team will go in automode and kills all enemies with try to get closer.
Grenade throwers arent very dangerous, just use your machine gun.
Rocket Launcers are dangerous, Just try to shoot them before they shoot
you, or move fast towards them and zigzag a lot.
Watch out for land mines, they arent drwan very well, so hard to see where
Dont be a fool and dont step into quick sand or swaps, They kill you.
When you see a fuel barrel with troops aaround it, throw a grenade to the
barrel and admire the explosion.
Snow can be very slippery. Plan ahead on this ground.
Water comes in two kinds. You can shoot when you are in the water, but only
at the dark places. A nice trick is to get your enmies in the ligth water
so they cant shoot and you can! This works especially when theres a pier
close the the water.
In the mountain scene, you musnt stand too close to the edges, you might
fall into them.
