      "Destroy the Enemy Army!"


This is exactly what you do in this game, destroying the enemy's army, all of
it! You take control of a commando named Super Joe( emphasis on the Super)
and your mission(s) is to kill the enemies in your way until you reach a place
containing a nuclear weapon that you need to recover or the imprisoned world
leaders you need to save or something like that. Anyway no one cares, just kill
everyone and keep moving without asking any questions. The game consists of (4)
missions, each containing (4) areas. The four missions look basically the same
with minor changes and a higher difficulty as you progress.

At the end of each area, you will face sergeants in green clothing, they will
send quite a number of soldiers after you. To end the level, you have to kill
him and his soldiers and any other green sergeants with them OR kill the other
soldiers and he will simply give up, giving you the  chance to go to the next
area.

On your journey, you will encounter many, many secrets. There are secret
hidden ladders which will show up when throwing a grenade in a certain place.
Once they are revealed, you can go down and find items/enemies/puzzles/etc..
in the undergound shelter. There are also many hidden items that can be
uncovered in the previous way or by simply going over certain terrains.

This FAQ consist sof two sections; the walkthrough, and the secret ladder
section. While reading the walkthrough and reaching a certain secret ladder,
I will tell you its location and maybe the items in the underground shelter but
I will not tell you the layout or the detailed contents of the underground
shelter. Each secret ladder will be given a number, and upon scrolling down to
the secret ladder section and finding the same number, you will see the details
of the underground shelter reached from that secret ladder.

If you have any contributions, corrections, questions or anything, don't
hesitate to e-mail me. If you find out a secret ladder or item or anything I
have missed, your help would be greatly appreciated.

Now that that is out of the way, I hope you like this FAQ. If you do( or don't),
then please rate it. Also note that this FAQ is best viewed with Wordpad.

Commando is a hard and challenging game. You start with your rifle and a
limited supply of grenades and have thousands of enemies to kill, around a
rough 15 enemies per screen. You start with only (5) grenades but there are
a lot of grenades lying around everywhere. What you need to do throughout the
course of the game is to keep throwing grenades. You can't throw them to your
left or right though, only in front of Super Joe.

In your quest for annihilation, you encounter prisoners. These can be found in
underground shelters, escorted by enemy soldiers, or simple tied to trees. You
need to go "touch" them if you want to free them. Once freed, they help you
out in various ways, ranging from points( 1,000 points) to rifle and grenade
upgrades.

Be sure to rescue all possible prisoners, as their help is needed( the items
they give out) and you get extra points at the end of each area based on the
number of prisoners you have rescued. Points give extra lives, and that is very
much needed.

You will find various items either just laid out for you to take, or by
throwing  grenade in a certain spot. Some even appear when you go to certain
places or over certain terrains. You can also get items that give points by
throwing a grenade at certain enemies. Items gotten this way only give you
bonus points though. Here is a list of all the items you can get in the game
and their purpose...

You will also encounter different enemies. Most of them can be easily killed by
firing you rifle at them. Some need to be killed with grenades like the green
soldiers with the shield and the enemies hiding in/behind a barricade. Learn
how to use your weapons effectively and how to kill your enemies.

Finally, when you're going through screens, you can't go back. The only way to
go back( if you really need it) is to either die, and if your last checkpoint is
a long way back, you will go there OR if go down a secret ladder and when coming
out, it may locate you in a previous screen.

Enemies can't come for you from the back; once they are left behind, they are
gone. Be warned though, enemy soldiers can and will go to you from the sides,
so make sure you always stay away from the sides of the screen, it is very
dangerous.

And now, on with the walkthrough!

             The Walkthrough
=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-


+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
--------------------------------First Mission-----------------------------------
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

--------------------------------Area Number (1)---------------------------------

As soon as you start, keep heading forward while shooting your rifle to kill
the enemies until you reach three trees close together. Go between them and
a hand grenade will appear. Take it. You'll notice the grenade status icon will
start glowing, at this time any grenade thrown will kill all the enemies on the
screen. Wait a bit and when you see a whole bunch of enemies, try it out.

Afterwards, keep moving and you will se soldiers jumping down to you from the
right. These will keep spawning infinitely so kill a few and keep moving. Then
you'll find four flashing boxes strategically placed before the barricade.
These are grenades, take them and throw one at the soldier hiding behind the
barricade( you can't kill him any other way) and you'll find that a secret
hidden ladder has appeared. This is [Ladder 1-1.1].

After that, keep going forward until you reach a hill on your left side and see
strange looking soldiers heading in your way with strange looking hands from
there. These are soldiers that will try to kill you with knifes. They are
especially dangerous and you should eliminate them ASAP because they move in
a strange pattern. After killing them, throw a grenade on the leftmost side of
the hill's side. You will reveal the [Ladder 1-1.2], this is a very important
ladder to go down from.

Note that you can't take the four grenades on the ground if you go down the
ladder, but it doesn't matter at all.

Next, you'll find a prisoner being taken by two soldiers on your left. You can't
save him by using grenades or in any other way; you should go right and aim your
rifle diagonally to the upper left direction and keep firing till you kill the
two guys. Saving the prisoner will get you 1,000 points.

After saving the prisoner, you can see a soldier hiding behind a barricade and
throwing mortars at you, he's on the right side. Throw a grenade at him. Then,
go forward a little and throw another grenade that will hit the right side of
the bridge. This will reveal [Ladder 1-1.3].

On the bridge, some guy in a motorcycle will throw grenades at you. These are
most easy to evade and you can't kill him, so don't even bother. Walk under the
bridge and keep going between the ponds until you reach a place with lots of
guards hiding behind rocks. Go to the first rock on the right side and a hand
grenade will be revealed. Take it.

After taking the hand grenade, move forward until you make sure most of the
soldiers hiding behind rocks are visible. Then, press the "A Button" to kill
them all! At least two of the dead soldiers will leave barells or bags of
money behind.

Now before moving on, there is a secret hidden ladder right behind the rock in
the middle. This will be called [Ladder 1-1.4].

Keep moving and throwing grenades at the cowards hiding behind the barricades.
There are four grenades on the left that you might want to take them. Also
there are two prisoner tied on trees on your left side so save them as well.
They give you 1,000 points each. Now you see the green grass on the right? At
the end there is a secret hidden ladder. Let's call it [Ladder 1-1.5].

After all of that, keep going forward, killing everyone you see until you
reach a kind of closed out place. This is where the final battle will occur.
Move forward until you hear a new theme playing, this signals the start of
the battle. Keep killing the soldiers until the leader( the dude with green
clothes and a shield) surrenders, or kill everyone including the leader to
end the area. Note that the green guy running around will disappear if you
don't kill him quickly. He can't attack you( unless you go touch him) and he
gives you a smacking 2,000 points when killed, so make sure he's your first
target.

At the end screen, you will get extra points for completing the area and
additional points based on the number of prisoners rescued in area with your
current life. Each prisoner gives you an additional 1,000 points. Also, you
might notice that you have an extra life by this time; this is because you get
an additional life once you reach 20,000 points( not every 20,000 points 
though).


--------------------------------Area Number (2)---------------------------------

You'll start in a big empty land filled with soldiers. Just keep firing your
rifle and moving forward. After moving a bit you'll see a car heading your way,
evade it by going right. Now while being in the right side, move a little
forward and you'll notice a truck moving from right to left. Once this happens,
stop so you won't get hit by it. Then, throw a grenade or two( remember, you're
in the rightmost side of the screen)until you reveal a secret hidden ladder
(it is a little bit above the place the truck comes from). Lets call the ladder
[Ladder 1-2.1].

Next, keep going forward and you'll see a couple of grenades on your left. Take
them; you'll need to eliminate the soldiers hiding in the pits with them. While
doing so, two bikers will try to hit you from both sides, right, left, and then
right again. They shouldn't be much of a problem. After a while, you'll see
three soldiers firing at you from inside a pit, a little after them, you'll see
two rocky hills and a little space between them, go to that space and an item
will be revealed: A BulletProof Vest. Be sure to take it.

After taking the bulletproof vest, you'll see a soldier hiding behind a
barricade in the middle. Throw a grenade a little bit below him to reveal
another secret hidden ladder, it is called [Ladder 1-2.2]. behind this
particular barricade, there's a broken bridge. Throw a grenade on the right
side of it to reveal another secret hidden ladder. [Ladder 1-2.3].

After the bridge, you will encounter soldiers with rocket launchers, they are
only dangerous if you don't know what to do. Now they only fire in one
direction, and that is in a straight line in front of them, so be sure to kill
them quickly if you are right in front of them. A good way would be to keep
firing diagonally at them or throwing grenades while side stepping. Either way
way, don't make them kill you.

Now there is a cool item here, placed next to the grenades on the left side.
You have to throw a grenade slightly to the right of the grenades to reveal a
wireless remote radio! If you take it, you will be moved to the next area! If
you use it, then jump to the walkthrough of the third area, if you don't,
then continue reading.

Closer description of the location of the wireless remote radio: It is just
below the start of the bridge in the middle.

Now after all of that, continue going across the bridge. There is a secret
hidden ladder here located at the end of the bridge in the middle,
[Ladder 1-1.4]. It is an extremely important ladder that brings you down to
a hidden shelter containing prisoners that will give you a hand grenade
power up/upgrade when saved. This power up will make the blast radius of the
grenade a lot bigger and is needed in later parts. Note that you will lose
this and any other power ups if you die( lose a life) so do your best to
avoid enemy fire.

Also note that there is a soldier hiding in the water on the right side of
the bridge. You can kill him via grenades but the strange thing is, once you
kill him, he will probably drop an additional points item that you can't
reach. Strange.

After the bridge, you will encounter another new enemy; machine gun turrets
inside stone rooms. The machine gun bullets fired by these are strangely
slow and easy to avoid so they shouldn't be *too* much of a problem( you
can't destroy them though). Keep going forward and you'll see a prisoner
tied to some stone hill, save him and he'll give you 1,000 points. A little
bit in front of the prisoner, you will see this screen:

'_S _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ M_M_'

So save the two prisoners, get the grenades then throw a grenade to the left of
the big boulder to reveal a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 1-2.5].

After you do all that, continue forward while doing the usual, killing soldiers
and evading bullets until you see three green sergeants with shields who will
keep throwing grenades at you. Make them history and continue til the end of
the area, at the scene of the last battle of the area. Before that you'll see
soldiers coming out of houses on both sides. Make sure you don't get too close
to these houses because you don't know when the soldiers will come out and kill
you. The last battle area is easy so just kill everyone there and finish the
area.

Before I move to the next area, here's a detailed map of the place with the two
bridges, two secret hidden ladders, and items:

--------------------------------Area Number (3)---------------------------------

Okay, this is a bit different than previous areas. Also, the secret hidden
ladders are indeed completely hidden in the most part and won't show even
if you throw a grenade at its location so follow this walkthrough carefully.

You'll start in an area filled with these cubic houses, some have enemy soldiers
coming out of them, some have secret hidden ladders and some are just there for
shows. As soon as you start, keep going forward until you see three grenades on
the ground, take them if you want. Now you see where the grenades are? To their
left there's a cubic house with its door visible to you. Go to it and you'll go
down a secret hidden ladder. Let it be [Ladder 1-3.1].

Now after this secret hidden ladder, there are three other secret hidden ladders
before the next checkpoint. You can only go down one of them, so make your
choice wisely. The checkpoint is marked by the first barricade in the level.
Before it and after the secret hidden ladder you already know of( the one to the
left of the grenades) there are three cubic houses...

| B______      __    |  The "B" is the pit that marks the checkpoint. If
|        __    \_\   |  you go down one of the ladders marked with a number,
|        \_\ __ #3   |  then when you get out you will be placed on the same
| __        /_/  __  |  line as this with all the other secret hidden ladders
|/_/#1      #2  /_/  |  behind you, so you can only go down one of them.
|     _              | The house in the middle has its door visible and enemy
|    /_/             |  soldiers come out of it. The one on the uppermost right
|    #               |  side also has its door visible. The ladder at the 
|_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ |  bottom is the ladder you went through before. When you
       -Grenades-       come out

of it you will be placed at the beginning of the area so it's no problem. This
is [Ladder 1-3.1], remember?

Now here are the names of each ladder based on the numbers placed on the 
map:

#1: [Ladder 1-3.2]
#2: [Ladder 1-3.3]
#3: [Ladder 1-3.4]

After choosing the ladder, continue and you'll find yourself in a place where
you are surrounded by pits( they act like barricades). Keep going forward,
killing the enemy's soldiers until you see a soldier hiding in a pit. Below
him there's a cubic house that has a secret hidden ladder. Let it be
[Ladder 1-3.5].

Above this particular pit, there are two houses, one on the left side, and one
on the right side and there are a couple of grenades to leftmost part of the
screen. Take the grenades and go to the house on the right side of the screen
because it has the secret hidden ladder [Ladder 1-3.6]. Note that if you go
down this ladder, then you will miss the next one so make your decision.

Now you will have finished the cubic houses part. As soon as you get out, you
will see two ponds, a big one on the right, and a small one on the left. Throw
a grenade a little bit below the right pond to reveal a secret hidden ladder.
Let's call it [Ladder 1-3.7].

Afterwards, keep going forward. You'll see another pond, keep going. By now,
you should be eliminating enemy soldiers with ease. After a while, you'll
reach a place with two barricades( one on each side) and a bridge. Keep going
below the bridge, completely ignoring the biker who will be throwing grenades
at you.

After the bridge you'll reach another area with normal houses on each side.
Soldiers will keep going out from these so keep_moving_forward while firing
and throwing grenades Don't stop for a second, if you, then you're history,
even if you still have the bulletproof vest from earlier( you should still
have it by now). Note that the last two houses spawn soldiers with knives so
be sure to eliminate them quickly.

After you get out of that place, you're in a completely new area. This new
area is filled with big, white houses. Most of these houses spawn soldiers
so be careful. At first there are three houses on the left, then two on the
right, then another three on the left. Of these three houses, the one in the
middle contains a secret hidden ladder( similar to those in the beginning of
the area) so go down it, it's [Ladder 1-3.8].

Then you'll see three houses, two on the right side and one on the left. This
is especially hard to go through. As soon as you go right from the three lined
houses from before, "hug" the upper wall of them and keep going left. The two
houses on the right keep spawning enemies at an unbelievable rate, so just
keep hugging the lower houses' upper walls and going left without any form of
hesitation, then go up.

Next, there are two houses next to each other, both spawn enemy soldiers.
Avoid them by going right and up. Then you will see two houses, each in the
far edge of each side. The one in the right side contains a hidden ladder,
the last secret hidden ladder in the area, [Ladder 1-3.9].

Finally, keep going forward, killing soldiers, avoiding bullets and houses
until you reach the final battle area! The final battle area consists of
two soldiers hiding behind a barricade( firing mortars at you) and a big door
that a whole bunch of soldiers come out from. No leader is here, just normal
soldiers. To complete the area, annihilate every single one of them.The
soldiers hiding behind the barricades can be spared but eliminating them will
make your job a lot easier. The easiest way of killing the soldiers is by
going to the bottom of the screen and shoot your rifle upwards while side
stepping left and right. Now when this is over, on to the next area!


--------------------------------Area Number (4)---------------------------------

Right at the beginning, you will be greeted by soldiers with rocket launchers,
throw grenades and/or shoot your way through them until you see three grenades
on your left. Take them and while keeping yourself on the same line, keep going
right. At the rightmost side, there is a hidden hand grenade that will be
revealed once you step on it. Take it and then throw it to kill all the enemies
on the screen!

Then, keep going forward. You'll walk on a couple of bridges and fight the
usual enemies. Go across the first bridge, and the second, but not the third.
Before going across the third bridge, head left and throw a grenade to the
other side. You'll uncover a secret hidden ladder/ [Ladder 1-4.1]. Now, go
across the bridge to see a soldier hiding behind a barricade. Throw a grenade
at him to both kill him and reveal a secret hidden ladder- [Ladder 1-4.2].

Next, keep going across the bridges until you find two soldiers, one on each
side, hiding behind barricades and firing mortars at you. Throw a grenade at
left soldier to kill him and to reveal a secret hidden ladder-[Ladder 1-4.3].
Afterwards, go across the bridge and you'll see three trees close together.
A *little* below them is a secret hidden ladder. To reveal it you have to
throw a grenade in the right side of the previous bridge in the middle of it.
Let's call it [Ladder 1-4.4].

After this ladder, there are a couple of barrels on your left. After you pass
these, a car crosses from the left side to the right. After it, a bike crosses
from the right side to the left. Make sure these don't hit you and continue on.
You'll find some grenades on the right side. Take 'em and move to the left side.
Keep going in a straight line on the left side until you see two soldiers
sitting and throwing grenades at you. Throw a grenade to kill them both AND
reveal a secret hidden ladder. It is called [Ladder 1-4.5].

After that secret ladder, there is another one on the upper right side( just
before the road ends on the right side), and another one below the surveillance
tower( on the line where the road and ground meet. They are are called in their
respective order [Ladder 1-4.6] and [Ladder 1-4.7]. You can kill the green guys
up in the surveillance tower if you want.

Keep going forward and you'll see a tent on your left. Soldiers will come out
of this at a hilarious rate. Really, it's quite funny. Stay as far away from
this as possible and keep going forward. The mission is nearing its end. Not
much later you'll see another surveillance tower. Again, throw a grenade right
beneath it to reveal a secret hidden ladder. That secret ladder is called
[Ladder 1-4.8]. Also, take the grenades found here.

After this, there's another surviellance tower, and after that...there's a long
space, the silence before the storm, for after it...is the area of the final
battle for this mission. This area consists of a large wall( perhaps the front
of a castle?) with three windows, each having a green clothed soldier behind it
with a maching gun. The door of this great wall opens to usher out soldiers and
the crazy green soldier. You don't have to kill the three soldiers behind the
windows and they aren't much of a problem, but they do give a good number of
points so go for it. Also, the normal soldiers coming out for you is increased
significantly from the number in previous areas and the area to fight them is
very small. The best way is to keep circling clockwise while shooting the rifle
and throwing your grenades. You could also try standing in a corner and
shooting away anyone who comes near you. Either way it shouldn't be that hard.

After killing everyone, you will have completed the area, and the mission!
CONGRATULATION!!! You still have a long way to go though.

--------------------------------Second Mission----------------------------------
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

--------------------------------Area Number (1)---------------------------------

As you already know( I told you in the beginning of the FAQ), the areas in all
the missions have the same landscape. They do differ however in the enemies,
how the enemies act, secret ladder locations and other things, so be prepared!
Also note that only your lives and grenades carry on when moving from a mission
to the next. Any status, like weapon upgrades and bullet proof vests do not
carry along with you.

As soon as you start, keep going and get that hidden hand grenade( it's between
the three trees) and throw it to kill everyone. There's somthing really cool
that happens here after throwing the grenade; all the colours change, kinda
become negative, for a few seconds. Anyway, after that keep moving...you know,
the usual...kill everyone, evade bullets...yadda yadda.

There's a secret ladder here on the lower side of the first hill on the left
side, go the trees below it and throw a grenade to have it appear. It's called
[Ladder 2-1.1]. Next you'll see the soldiers with the knives. They come
at you from the left and right sides. There are a couple of grenades lying above
the hill on the left side and you can see a small hill right in the middle of
the screen. Throw a grenade on the lower right side of it to uncover another
secret hidden ladder. It is [Ladder 2-1.2].

Now you see the grass on the right? Go there and keep walking forward until you
hit the hill. From there, throw a grenade to uncover another secret hidden
ladder. It is [Ladder 2-1.3]. Be careful though, because when moving to go down
this ladder, you can be killed if you touch the jumping soldiers from the hill.
Yes, if they're jumping from a wholly different place and you hit them while
they're in the air, you die. Also note that if you die here, then you will
completely miss this ladder.

After the ladder there are the same two soldiers guarding the prisoner. Kill
them just like you did in the first mission, by firing your rifle diagonally
from the right side. After saving him, keep going forward and under the bridge.
See the two ponds? Then you've reached a checkpoint.

Go forward between the two ponds and get the hand grenade hidden below the first
rock on the right. Go a bit forward and throw it to elimiate as many soldiers
as you can. After doing that, keep moving till you see three boulders in same
line, with a soldier hiding behind each. There is a secret hidden ladder located
behind the boulder on the right, [Ladder 2-1.4], and another one in front of the
boulder on the left, [Ladder 2-1.5].

After the three boulders, you'll encounter the soldiers hiding behind
barricades. Notice how these soldiers fire at a much faster rate than in the
first mission, and with good accuracy. This makes killing them a priority, so
get the grenades on the left( behind the three trees) and use them well. Oh and
don't forget to save the prisoners tied to these trees.

There are another four grenades behind the fifth barricade so take those as
well. Now after the barricades section is over, you'll see four boulders lined
in a diagonal way from the lower left corner to the upper right corner with
soldirs hiding behind them. Now these never gave you trouble in the first
mission but now they are extremely dangerous. Their accuracy and speed with
machine guns are very good and they are spread on the screen in such a way, that
makes avoiding them very hard.

What you need to do is quickly go to the left side and throw a grenade to
eliminate the first soldier. Then side step while firing your rifle until you
come in line with second. Throw a grenade to kill him as well. Do the same
thing for the four soldiers and then move on.

After going through this, you will be at the final battle section of this area.
Despite having a very large number of soldiers coming your way, this section is
eay to conquer. Aim at the green soldier with shield and keep firing your rifle
rapidly( having the upgrade really help here). All the soldiers will keep
coming from the same spot, so if you just keep shooting at it, you will kill
them with ease. After you feel like you have killed a great number and are
nearing the end, throw a grenade to end the area with a blast!


--------------------------------Area Number (2)---------------------------------

Okay, the change in difficulty between each mission really shows in this area so
be careful. At the beginning, go forward whilst shooting all the soldiers in
front of you until you see the enemy car moving towards you. Unlike in the
previous mission where you can simply go right or left and evade it, this time
the car will go to the direction you're going so it is near impossible to pass
the car.

What you should do is this: As soon as the car appears from the upper screen, go
down and don't move. The car will try to hit you but then it will go right back
up. After that's over, keep going and you'll see the truck moving towards you 
from the right side. Again, don't try to go forward when it stops as it will
take you by surprise and hit you. Don't even try that from its back as it will
do the same thing. Instead, just wait for it to stop and leaves the screen and
then go forward.

There are a lot of soldiers here but firing away your rifle should take care of
everyone with ease. In the next screen you'll see three grenades and two pits,
a long one on the right and a small, short one on the left side. Throw a grenade
to kill the soldier in the left pit and take the grenades, then go down to the
bottom of the screen and head right so that you'll be facing the soldiers in the
other pit. Throw another grenade here to kill both soldiers and reveal a secret
hidden ladder, this one is [Ladder 2-2.1].

There's another ladder here, above the small pit and right below another one
after it. This ladder is [Ladder 2-2.2]. If you still don't know where these two
ladders are, look at this map...

After this section, keep going and you'll see a biker trying to run you over
form the right side. There are two others later on, so keep moving forward
while in the middle of the screen. The other soldiers coming at you shouldn't
be a problem by now and although the bikers are a bit faster than last time,
they shouldn't be a problem either if you just stay in the middle.

After you pass the three bikers and reach the area with the three soldiers in
a pit, go left and kill the soldier in the really small pit. Then, go a bit more
to the left and throw a grenade to reveal another secret hidden ladder, right
below another one of those pits. Let's call it [Ladder 2-2.3].

A little after that, you'll see a little bit of space on the right side between
two stone walls, the area where you found the bulletproof vest earlier on. Go
there and the bulletproof vest will appear again. Take it, but be very careful
because a lot of soldier will come from the right screen so don't be hasty. Now
that you have this vest, you should probably be more confident, so kill the
soldiers every where and eliminate the one in the pit in the middle.

Now do you see the damaged bridge? A little bit before it in the middle of the
screen is a secret hidden ladder. Throw a grenade there to reveal it. This is
[Ladder 2-2.4]. After the bridge you'll encounter the soldiers with rocket
launchers. Just like last time, kill them quickly and "strafe" left and right
to evade their attacks.

Now right before the lake there are two secret hidden ladders, one on the left
side and one on the right. The one in the upper right corner is [Ladder 2-2.5]
and the one on the left, right next to the four grenades, is [Ladder 2-2.6].
If you don't want to continue and go right to the next area, throw a grenade
right below the bridge to reveal the wireless remote radio that will take you
to the next area when taken. It is in the exact same place as it was in the 
previous mission so check that mission's area 2 map that I've made to find it.

If you have decided to keep going, then go across the bridge to see some
machine gun turrets. Don't worry though, as even in this mission they don't
pose much, if any, threat. Keep going forward, firing your rifle, killing the
soldiers, evading the bullets, taking the grenades and saving the prisoners
on the way( which will give you 1,000 points each, when saved).

After you see the green sergeants, know that you're nearing the end. Keep
going and when at the final battle screen, kill the soldiers to finish the
area. If you don't have the bulletproof vest or the grenade upgrade then this
will be a pain to complete. What you should do, either way, is kill the
soldiers that stand in your path and throw a grenade to kill the leader.
Then, go to the upper right corner and kill everyone that gets close. That's
the safest way I can think of to complete the area.


--------------------------------Area Number (3)---------------------------------

Keep going forward and shooting your rifle to kill the soldiers. There isn't
anything to take before the grenades so take those and then stop. On the left 
there's a soldier hiding in a pit, firing at you. Throw a couple of grenades 
above him to reveal two secret hidden ladders. The one on the right is
[Ladder 2-3.2] and the one on the left is [Ladder 2-3.1].

After that, take the grenades and keep going forward until a soldier hiding in
pit on the right side. Throw a grenade right below him to reveal another secret
hidden ladder, [Ladder 2-3.3]. After that, there are some grenades on the left
side that you could take. Also are a couple of the soldiers with knives so
eliminate them quickly.

Now at the pond area there are two secret hidden ladders, one below each pond.
To spare any confusion, look at this map...

|/G/ __   / \     __|
|_ _`_ \_ _ _ _ _/ _|

Next, keep moving, killing the soldiers on the way. Nothing should be a problem
now, everyone is easy to take care of. Once you see the little pond in the
middle, throw a grenade right below it to reveal the secret hidden ladder
[Ladder 2-3.6]. After passing the bridge, you'll see soldierscoming out of their
shelters on both sides, you just keep going forward while firing away your rifle
until you reach the place with the big white stone houses.

Over there, there whouldn't be any problem if you keep firing rapidly at the
houses' doors( where the soldiers spawn) so just do that and you'll be fine.
There are a couple of secret hidden ladder in this area that will not appear
even if you throw a grenade at them. Instead, go to the doors of some houses
and Joe will go down. All is shown in this map...
 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

|                         | The final battle area is a piece of cake. To

|WW#WW WW$WW WWWWW        | battle and the area. The mortar enemies are a

|_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _| easy and should pose no threat.


--------------------------------Area Number (4)---------------------------------

This area is very hard. You can't just keep going forward and shooting
everything you see. No, there are far too many enemies to do that to so what you
have to do is stop, shoot everyone you see, keep going, stop, shoot, etc...

Right at the start you'll encounter the soldiers with rocket launchers. They
fire at a faster rate than last time so be extra careful in eliminating them.
Move in a zig zag motion and keep firing your rifle rapidly while also throwing
grenades to kill them.

Next, go to the four grenades and take them. Now after that, stay in the same
horizontal line and throw a grenade. You'll reveal a secret hidden ladder,
[Ladder 2-4.1]. Don't go down that ladder yet though because there's a Hand
Grenade that you could miss. The Hand Grenade is found on the rightmost side of
the screen, in the same horizontal line as the grenades were. Use this when
you're in a tight spot.

After that, keep moving carefully across the bridges while eliminating your foes
until you reach the soldiers hiding behind a barricade. throw a grenade to kill
him and then quickly go to the left side. The reason you should do this is that
there are a lot of soldiers, including those with rocket launchers, on the other
side and thanks to the dumb AI they won't cross the bridge to reach you but 
instead they'll be stuck on the edge and they won't be of any harm to you. You
can use this in other places as well.

Anyway, once you're on the left side, aim right and shoot everyone. By the time
everyone near you is dead, a bunch of soldiers will have stacked up on the 
other side of the bridge. Throw a grenade to clear them off and go to the right
side to do the same thing again. This time however, when you throw your grenade,
a secret hidden ladder will be revealed. [Ladder 2-4.2].

Next, you'll reach a large area with two soldiers, one on each side,
hiding behind barricades and firing mortars at you. Also there are a lot of
soldiers coming at you from the bridge. Throw a grenade right below the bride,
in the middle of it, and you'll reveal a secret hidden ladder. Quickly go down
to get a breather from all the action. Also, when you get out, you'll be in the
same place but with none of the soldiers behind the barricades. Oh and this is
[Ladder 2-4.3].

After you cross the next bridge, as usual, a lot of soldiers will come at you.
A good strategy I have is to keep going in circles around one soldier while
evading the bullets. After a while of doing this, a bunch of soldiers will have
stacked up as one soldier giving you the chance to either run away( because
only a set number of soldiers can exist in one screen, which means none will
appear afterwards) or shoot them with extreme ease. Try doing this in other
places as well, areas with lots of soldiers and big space to move in.

By the way, see the bunch of barrels on the left? Throw a grenade right below
them to reveal a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 2-4.4]. Now, after the
barrels... there's this car that comes at you at great speeds from the left.
There is no way to keep going past it so just go a little bit forward then back
immediately and wait for it to reach the right side before you continue going.
Also note that the car doesn't go in a straight line, but will get closer to
you( move in your direction) as you move so keep going back once you see it.
This can be very hard due to the fact that there are a lot of soldiers in the
area that will obstruct your path so here's what you should do. Before going
past the barrels, stack a couple of soldiers at the bottom of the screen by
going in circles around a fixed soldier. Then, leave those alone and go up,
killing any soldiers near the barrels. After crossing the barrels and the car
appears, go right and down until you're right next to the three trees. The car
won't reach you there. 
An even easier method is to stand next to the barrels (on their right) and then
quickly going up and down. The car will appear and move all the way to the right
without hitting you.

But this is the easiest method:
Just stand on the left area of the barrels and then move a bit forward
(you don't need to go back). When you move forward, the car will appear
ahead of you. It will move and reach the right side without even getting close
to you.

After the car is gone, keep going and a bike will try and run you over. It'll
come from the right side and will be very slow so it shouldn't be a problem at
all. A bit forward is a tent on the right side with some soldiers around it.
Throw a grenade to its left, right where the ground and road meet to reveal a 
secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 2-4.5]. Also, take the grenades that are lying 
around here.

Now keep going and you'll see how many bullets are fired by each soldier.
If you keep going while in the middle of the road, everything will be easy and
you shouldn't face a single problem. When you see the two soldiers on the left
side throwing grenades at you, throw a grenade at them yourself to kill them.
Doing this will also reveal a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 2-4.6].

Now after that you'll see the watchtower. You can kill the soldiers on top of
it by throwing a grenade or two at them but I don't see why you would do that
as they don't pose much danger. Also, there are two secret hidden ladders
here, one on each side of the tower. Throw a grenade to the left and right
sides to reveal them. The one on the left is [Ladder 2-4.7] and on the right
is ladder [Ladder 2-4.8]. Note that the ladder on the right side is a bit far
from the tower. Look at this map to know where everything is.

After that, keep going forward. I really shouldn't be explaining every little
thing here because it will be very very easy if you keep in the middle of the
screen. That is, until you reach the final battle area...
the second mission's fout=rth area final battle is surprisingly easy. It 
differs from last time in two things. For starters, the enemies fire bullets
at a faster rate than last time( as in all the mission). Second, the green
soldiers hiding behind the windows will come down and attack you if you get 
too close.

What I did was really simple. As soon as I entered the area, I kept going 
forward, firing my rifle until I killed the crazy green guy. Then, I went
to the left side and kept firing at the right side( the door) until everyone
was dead. Surprisingly easier than last time.

<3 CONGRATULATIONS! <3
<3 YOUR 2ND MISSION IS ALL OVER! <3
<3 NOW ON TO THE THIRD MISSION! <3



+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
--------------------------------Third Mission-----------------------------------
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

--------------------------------Area Number (1)---------------------------------

Now this is somewhat hard. The enemies fire at a very fast rate and, although 
there aren't a lot of them on the screen at once, they're clever and will try
to gang up on you. What you should do throughout the mission is move, stop, 
kill, evade, move again.As I said, not many enemies will be on screen this time
round so it'll be a little bit different and could be easier if you know what
you're doing. 

Now as soon as you start, move forward carefully and take the hand grenade 
hiding between the three trees. Throw it whenever you see fit and keep going.
Then you'll see the first soldier hiding behind a barricade and a couple of
grenade below him. Take the grenades and throw one at him and a secret hidden
ladder will appear, [Ladder 3-1.1].

Next, a couple of soldiers will come at you from the left side. Don't stop
and attempt to kill them. Instead, keep going forward past them. In the area
after that, a lot of soldiers will be there, firing from all directions. Be
careful and slow in dealing with them because there are two knife soldiers
ahead and a secret hidden ladder. The ladder is found on the left side of the
hill on the left. It's called [Ladder 3-1.2].

After that it's the usual. Kill the soldiers and keep moving. After the three
trees a prisoner is being carried away by two soldiers. You can save him like
you did in the last two missions if you want, he still gives the lousy 1,000
points though. Go down the bridge and you'l reach the area with the soldiers
hiding behind rocks. This place place is pretty easy as you son't see more
than a couple of soldiers( including the one hiding) on the screen at one time.

Take your time taking these out and while you're doing that you could reveal 
a secret hidden ladder. It is found right under the rock in the middle
([Ladder 3-1.3]). One thing you should consider here( and later on) is that
enemy bullets have very short range so use this to your advantage and stand
away from your enemies, especially if there's a small number of them.

Afterwards, it gets a bit easier. No need for me to guide through every single
enemy so just keep shooting and killing. A good strategy is to keep going in 
one side because the range of enemy rifles is short. Take the grenades and
save the prisoners in your way if you want. If you keep moving while in one
side( preferably the right one) you will have no problem reaching the final
battle area. The final battle area is pretty easy. Keep Joe on the lower side
while aiming up and shooting the soldiers coming at you one at a time. Because
of the large amount of bullets fired the number of enemies on the screen at 
once is very low so it shouldn't be much of a problem taking them out.

Note: After the pond area, there is a hand grenade hidden right below the rock
on the right side.

--------------------------------Area Number (2)---------------------------------

This level is even hard. At the start, go to either the left or right side and 
shoot everyone you see. When you  move a bit forward, the car comes and tries
to run you over from the upper side. Just like you did in the last mission, 
move down and wait for it to go down and up before continuing. After it, the 
truck will come from the right side and try to hit you. Again, just like in the
previous mission, wait until the truck have move (the mistake is intentional)
all the way to the left side before proceeding. Trying to pass it will result
in the truck moving and taking you by surprise.

There is a secret hidden ladder here, found on the rightmost side a little
bit above the place where the truck appeared from. It's [ladder 3-2.1].
After that, you will reach an area filled with soldiers hiding in pits, keep
moving while in one side( preferrab;ly left) and you should be okay. After a 
while a biker will appear from the right side but he'll be way too slow to 
actually pose a threat. Another two will appear later on, one from the left
side and another from the right. They won't move in zig zag or follow you or
whatever, they just go in a straight line, which makes them very easy to avoid.

After a while you'll see three soldiers hiding in a pit. From there change
sides if you were on the left and start moving on the right side. After that 
there's a small space between two stone hills on right. As always, this is 
where the bullet proof vest is found, take it. There are two secret hidden
ladders here; one below the small pit in the middle of the screen( which is
[Ladder 3-2.2], and one in the middle of the right side of the broken bridge.
[Ladder 3-2.3].

Past the broken bridge are a couple of soldiers with rocket launchers.
Luckily for us, there are a small number of them due to the fast firing rate
every weapon has. Slowly kill everyone and take the grenades on your left. 
The Wireless Remote Radio is as always found in this area. To reveal it, 
throw a grenade a bit below the bridge and if want to complete the area
quickly, take it. 

If you choose to go across the bridge however, then there's a secret hidden
ladder that you might want to reveal. It's found right below the end of the
bridge. It's called [Ladder 3-2.4]. After the bridge you'll once again
encounter the machine gun turrets in the stone houses. These fire at you
like never before, they fire large, accurate bullets at a high rate so be
on the lookout for those. You might not risk saving he prisoners here but
it depends on you, really. 

There's a secret hidden ladder in this place, it's located on the left of
the big rock in the middle, on the same horizontal line as the three
grenades, the prisoner and the machine gun turret are. It's in the exact
same position as a ladder was in mission one so check out the map I've made
for that way back in the FAQ. Let's call this one [Ladder 3-2.5]. There's
also another secret hidden ladder found below the big rock up ahead, it's
called [Ladder 3-2.6].

After that, keep going forward, eliminating everyone in your way, you know
the drill. When you see the green guys with shields, throw a grenade or two
to kill them. In the area where soldiers spawn from both sides, keep moving
on and never stop until you reach the final battle area. While going there,
throw a grenade to kill the leader and then you have a number of strategies
to use to finish the area. You could and go move from corner to corner while
evading bullets and killing enemies, you could go in circles while firing
away like crazy and throwing grenades, you could stay in one side and 
dispose of the soldiers one by one or you could try whatever you see fit.
Also, if you have the grenade power up, then this'll be a million times
easier( same thing with the bullet proof vest).


--------------------------------Area Number (3)---------------------------------

This area is just like area 1-3 but with harder enemies. When you start, move 
forward and kill the soldiers until you reach the grenades. Most of the ladders
in this area cann't be revealed by throwing a grenade or by any other way, you
just go down them when you step on certain places. The first secret hidden 
in this area is found below the house a little bit to the northwest of the 
grenades. It's [Ladder 3-3.1].

 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ,
| _______      __    |  Next are( just like in area 1-3) three hidden ladders

|    ##              |  ##: [Ladder 3-3.1]
|_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ |
       -Grenades-

Going around the area while evading enemy bullets shouldn't be too hard in this
part because you can use the houses to stop the soldiers in their tracks and 
then use the grenades to kill them in groups. After you go past the pit, take 
the grenades on the right and while remaining in the right side, keep moving
forward. There's a hidden ladder here, on the first house you see after taking
the grenades and moving on. It's [Ladder 3-3.5].

A bit further are three grenades and a house that spawns soldiers on the left 
side and a house on the right side. The latter house has a secret hidden 
ladder, [Ladder 3-3.6]. After that there are three soldiers with knives, 
kill them and move on to the pond area. On the right side, below the big pond,
there is a secret hidden ladder. [Ladder 3-3.7].

After the pond part a lot of enemies will try to kill so be careful. What you
should do is choose a side( preferably right) and keep moving forward while
on that side. Once you reach the broken bridge part, kill the soldier hiding
behind the barricade on your side by throwing a grenade. Next, wait until a 
couple of soldiers stack up behind the barricade, trying to move towards you
( lol at the dumb AI!) then throw another grenade to kill them all! After you
do that, immediately go down the bridge before any more soldiers appear.

Now you're in the area with the two lines of enemy shelters on both sides. It
may look like a hard part but it isn't if you keep moving forward in one side
while firing away. After that section is over, you're in the white houses 
part. In this area, a good strategy I used is tricking the enemy into 
thinking you're going somewhere, but then going another direction. Yeah, I'm
not joking, it works.

For example go a couple of steps down then suddenly go left, you'll find that
the left path will be empty and easy to go to. So use this to advance past 
the houses until you reach the place with two houses on the right and a third
one on the far left. To get past this have all the enemies follow you back 
down and then left and then suddenly turn the other way around and continue.
Here's a map to show you what to do...

                             _________________________________________________

After that very hard part is over, keep going forward. There are more white 
houses but you shouldn't be having any trouble. The house on the rightmost
side after the two in the middle has a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 3-3.9].
A little bit further and you'll reach the final battle area. It isn't
difficult, just kill the soldier(s) behind the barricade(s) and kill everyone
while going in circles. See? That wasn't too hard.


--------------------------------Area Number (4)---------------------------------

You start in a big open area with lots of soldiers. Nothing new so keep shooting
and moving onwards. In the next screen there are soldiers with rocket launchers,
be careful and eliminate the as soon as possible. To do this, keep firing 
upwards and try to never be facing a soldier with a rocket launcher as they fire
at an extremely higher rate than before. There are a couple of grenades on the 
left and on the same line on the right side there's a very handy hand grenade.
Use this wherever you see fit.

Afterwards, go across the bridges until you see the soldier hiding behind the
barricade. Do go across the next bridge to his location, instead, go left and
kill anyone around you then wait. After a couple of second a couple of soldiers
will have stacked up on the other side, moving, trying to reach you. Throw a 
grenade to kill them and also reveal a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 3-4.1].

Throw another grenade on the guy behind the barricade to kill him and make 
another secret hidden ladder appear, [Ladder 3-4.2]. After that there will
be two rocket launcher dudes so throw a grenade or fire your rifle at them
to kill them. A bit further is a place with two barricades, one on each side,
with a soldier hiding behind each one. Throw a grenade on the left one to kill
the soldier behind it( that coward) and reveal a secret hidden ladder,
[Ladder 3-4.3].

After you cross the next bridge you'll see some barrels. Just past those is
the car that comes at you from the left. The same car that zig zags, is 
much faster than you and is very hard to avoid. Actually, it's pretty easy
to avoid if you do what I say. What you should do is stand on the left of the
barrels and slowly move forward until the car appears and reaches the right
side. It wont even get close to hitting you.

Go forward when the car passes and a bike will try to hit you from the right 
side. It's pretty slow so it shouldn't be a problem, especially if you're
walking on the left side. After that there are some grenades on the
right and a tent that spawns many soldiers above them, in the
next screen there are three secret hidden ladders. One is
where the two soldiers are hiding on the left( behind machine gun turrets),
one is on the right, right below the line where the road and grass meet and 
the last one is on the line where the grass and ground meet right below the
surveillance tower. Here is a map to show you where everything is...

(Sorry about the big map. I'll make a better, smaller one later)

A bit ahead you'll find more soldiers coming from all sides. Keep firing
your (upgraded) rifle to kill them. After a bit you'll see two surveillance
towers and three grenades right below the one on the right. Throw a grenade
at the location of the grenades, right below the tower, to reveal a secret
hidden ladder--[Ladder 3-4.7].

Past that is the third mission's final battle area. As before, there are 
three green soldiers hiding behind windows on the big wall. These fire at
you and will jump down and come at you if you get too close. The main door
will release quite a number of soldiers, more than in any previous mission.
However, your method of finishing this mission should be just like the
method you used in every previous one. Kill the green soldier hiding 
behind the window of your choice( right or left) and then stand where he
used to be and fire your rifle to kill everyone you see. The enemy bullets
shouldn't pose a big threat since the don't have a long range so keep firing
away from one side until you complete the mission.

Congratulations!

The third mission is all over!

Now go to the graveyard!

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
--------------------------------Fourth Mission----------------------------------
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

--------------------------------Area Number (1)---------------------------------

Last mission, hardest difficulty. The difficulty this time shows in how fast
the soldiers go. They are very fast and the strategy to use throughout this
mission is hit and run/evade. Keep on the move, shooting away and running
away because if you stand still or hesitate for one moment, then you will die.

As soon as you start, keep going forward and take the hand grenade from between
the three trees and throw it to kill everyone. Next, move forward and a couple
of soldiers will jump down from the right side. Go left to evade those because
they're very fast and will come at you to kill you. Then, just keep going
forward while evading all the bullets and killing the soldiers. The fast pace
can be easier for some to play than how things were in the previous missions.

Anyway, when you reach the hill in the middle of the screen and the
grenades left of it, throw a grenade at the right of the lower side of the
hill to reveal a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 4-1.1]. After this go to the 
right, below the hill and throw a grenade to reveal another secret hidden 
ladder. It's [Ladder 4-1.2]. Don't attempt to go down down this ladder before
all the soldiers on the hill have jumped down.

Further is the broke bridge and some more soldiers. Kill them and
quickly go down the bridge . There's a secret hidden ladder here, just
after the broken bridge, it's called [Ladder 4-1.3]. After it there are
a lot of soldiers hiding behind rocks, firing at you. Just to the right
of the first rock on the right is a hand grenade. Take it then throw it
after moving a bit forward to kill a large number of soldiers. Note that
when doing this there is bound to be a couple of barrel and money bag
items left behind. Take those too if you want along with the grenades on
the left side of the screen.

Next you'll find three rocks placed on the same horizontal line with a
soldier hiding behind each one. Throw a grenade just below the one on the
right to reveal the secret hidden ladder [Ladder 4-1.4]. After it are 
another set of soldiers behind barricade and even one soldier with a machine
gun. Remember that Super Joe too can use the barricade as shelter so hide
behind one whenever you find yourself in a tight situation.

Keep going forward and you'll find that there are a lot of grenades lying 
around just about everywhere in this area. Be sure to snatch as many as you
can. If you find difficulty passing a certain screen then make sure you're
moving onwards from one side and remember that evading is much more important
that shooting.

After a while you'll reach the final battle area. This is a very easy final
battle area so just kill everyone and move on. If you're having trouble, then
go to the bottom of the screen and keep firing upwards and throwing grenades
and every enemy should die. On to the next area!


--------------------------------Area Number (2)---------------------------------

You'll start in the same big space as in the previous area 2 missions. Kill the
soldiers surrounding you and get a move on. After a bit the car will come and 
try to run you over from the upper side, zig zagging if you try to evade it. As
you did in previous times, retreat when it appears until you reach the bottom 
of the screen then go back up when it's gone. Right after it, a truck appears
from the right side. Again, just as you did in previous missions, don't try to
pass until the truck has completely moved and reached the other side.

After it there are some grenades and some pits with soldiers in them. Right 
below the right pit is a secret hidden ladder which is [Ladder 4-2.1] and 
below the long pit on the left there's hidden ladder [Ladder 4-2.2]. After it
a bike appears from the right side and tries to kill you. It isn't as slow as
it was previously but it's still easy to get past. After it two more bikes try
to hit you, one from the left and another from the right.

Keep moving, evading bullets and shooting soldiers along the way. When you see
the long pit with three soldiers in it, go left and throw a grenade right below
the left side of the pit above it to reveal a secret hidden ladder, 
[Ladder 4-2.3]. After it, go forward and you'll see a small space on the right
side, between two rocky hills. In there is a Bullet Proof Vest that appears if
you step on it. Take this extremely handy item and move on.

Next is a soldier hiding inside a pit and a broken bridge. Throw a grenade 
right below the bridge, in the middle, to uncover a secret hidden ladder. This
ladder will be [Ladder 4-2.4]. After the broke bridge you'll be attacked by
soldiers with rocket launchers. Fortunately for us, there aren't a lot of them
so you should face any real problems. The Wireless Remote Radio is, as always,
found right below the bridge, next to the grenades( on their right). To be 
more accurate, there also a bit after them so throw a grenade there.
To the left of the grenades there is a secret hidden ladder, [Ladder 4-2.5].
On the far right side, below the river's bank there is another secret hidden 
ladder. This one is called [Ladder 4-2.6].

If you want to complete the area and instantly go to area 4-3, then take the
Wireless Remote Radio and jump to that area's walkthrough. If you choose to
avoid this and continue with this area, then go across the bridge and keep 
reading.

After that section you'll reach the area with the machine gun turrets inside
the stone houses. They fire big accurate bullets at an fast rate so pay
attention. A lot of prisoners are scattered here and although they only give
1,000 points each you may want to save them because they'll also give extra 
points if you complete the area without dying.

Keep going forward and evading the bullets fired from everyone. Soon you'll
see some green soldiers with shield so throw a couple of grenades to kill
them or if you're in a hurry, just go past them( recommended). After that
you'll be in an area that enemy shelters on both sides that spawn a hefty 
amount of soldiers. Keep going in the middle of the screen, zig zagging,
until you see the crazy green guy who identifies the final battle area. 
This is the hardest final battle area yet but it's still nothing impossible.
What you need to do is kill the leader by throwing a grenade at him right at
the beginning. Follow that by going from place to place while shooting away
and killing a soldier or two each time. You need to concentrate and focus
here. Monitor the enemy bullets as soon as they are fired so that you can
know where to go, how to evade the bullets and who to kill.

Remember: Don't stay in one place for more than half a second and keep 
stopping every now and then.

This can be hard and frustrating, and can take weeks to complete but try
to master moving, stopping and shooting really fast and you'll do it.


--------------------------------Area Number (3)---------------------------------

This area is exactly like area 2-3 and it isn't that much difficult except in 
the white houses part. To complete that part, use the enemies' speed against
them and make them go in a different direction than your destination. For
example, have the soldiers follow you to a far away corner and then quickly
turn around and continue. The final battle area is actually pathetic. Just kill
the two soldiers behind the barricades who are throwing grenades at you and 
everyone else should be a peace of cake.


--------------------------------Area Number (4)---------------------------------

This is it. The last area in the game. As expected, this area is extremely hard
and you're going to need every last bit of talent and will to complete it.
As soon as you start, go to the left side and advance while killing the soldiers
around and not too late you'll encounter some rocket launcher guys. Luckily for
us, all but one of them will be on the right so you just kill the one on the 
left and take the grenades. On the same horizontal line as these grenades, on
the rightmost side, there is a Hand Grenade item that will reveal itself once
stepped on. Take it if you want.

After that, go across a couple of bridges until you see the soldiers hiding
the barricade. Throw a grenade to kill him and go right. Now a couple of
soldiers will be to your left and back so kill them. In front of you there will
be some soldiers, including two with rocket launchers. Good thing is they can't
reach you because they're on the other side and thanks to the dumb AI, they
will keep on walking, trying to reach you but to no avail.

What you should do is wait until they stack up, and then throw a grenade to
kill them all. You will also reveal a secret hidden ladder( remember, you're
on the right side). This ladder is [Ladder 4-4.1]. After that is an area with
two soldiers, on each side, behind two barricades and throwing grenades at you.
If you're having any type of problem over here, then go down [Ladder 4-4.1]
because once you go down this ladder and leave it, you will be returned to the
same area but without any soldiers in it, including the two behind the 
barricades.

Across the next bridge you'll be in the area with the barrels. The car that
appears directly after you pass the barrels can be easily avoid by going to
the left of the barrels and moving forward while remaining on the left side.
After it a bike appears from the right side but it's as slow as always.
After that you'll see some soldiers hiding behind stuff all over. Be sure
to kill those because they are extra dangerous. 

There is a tent after a while with some grenades below it. To its left is 
secret hidden ladder [Ladder 4-4.2]. After the tent, throw a grenade a little
bit above the two soldiers hiding on the left side to reveal another secret
hidden ladder, this time it's [Ladder 4-4.3]. After that there's some more
secret hidden ladders, this time they're around the first surveillance tower
you see. One is on its left, [Ladder 4-4.4] and another is on its right,
slightly in front of it( [Ladder 4-4.5]) just like in area 2-4.

Finally( finally), keep going forward until you reach the final battle area
of the final area of the final mission. It's extremely to beat, just like
it was in the third mission. What you should do is kill one of the soldiers
hiding behind a window and then go to that window that he used to occupy. 
Then, aim your rifle at the incoming soldiers and fire away till everyone's
dead. What a piece of cake!

CONGRATULATIONS<3

YOUR ALL MISSION

IS ALL OVER<3


Congratulations on beating one of the most difficult games ever. If you
beat the game with (3) lives and (24) grenades remaining with you then
you will recieve a secret message from the developers.

    THE SECRET HIDDEN LADDER SECTION
=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

This section is to be used in conjunction with the walkthrough section. In the
walkthrough I've given each secret ladder a number. Here you can check the
number to see what each shelter each secret hidden ladder that led down to
it contains. If you don't want to use the walkthrough, then read the location
of each ladder. Don't forget that in order to reveal a ladder, you need to
throw a grenade at its specific location.

All ladders have been sorted by their areas in each mission to make checking
the ladders by the reader as easy as possible. Enjoy.

prisoner gives you 1,000 points when rescued. This is kind of an
introduction to the whole secret ladder thing.

Contents: (5) soldiers, escape ladder, flashing thingie.

Explanation: Again, two screens. Lower one has three soldiers, upper has two.
Just kill the soldiers here and go up the ladder.

Q: What's that flashing thing?
A: It is supposed to guide you for whenever you use the flashlight( because
the screen gets dark).

You see there are flashlights in certain shelters that make the screen go dark
and enemies can't see you. You can use the flashing circle as a guide to
wherever you want to go.

Q: Does it have a porpuse in this shelter?
A: I don't think so.

Although there are indications of there being a hidden screen above the escape
ladder, there isn't.

the end of the screen you're in( when compared to a few tiles for the rifle
bullets). Also the rate of fire is increased. With this, your rifle will be
a much more useful weapon than the grenade. Oh and, instead of firing small
balls you now fire big balls!
Note that you will lose this upgrade when you lose a life of finish the mission
you're currently in.

 ______________
|[Ladder 1-3.2]|

Location:

Contents: One prisoner, one escape ladder( shown).

Explanation: Save the prisoner and he'll give you a grenade upgrade. Unlike the
previous upgrade( in [Ladder 1-2.4]), the blast radius won't get any bigger.
Instead, you have now an INFINITE number of grenades, so no matter how many you
throw, they will never run out. Extremely handy.

Map: Not needed.

Additional Notes: If you go down this ladder first, then you will permanently
miss Ladders [Ladder 1-3.3] and [Ladder 1-3.4], so you have to choose only one
of these three. Furthermore, this ladder is permanently hidden, meaning it
can't be revealed if you throw a grenade at it.

-----------------------
 ______________
|[Ladder 1-3.3]|

Location:

the help of the two flashing circles on its right and left.

Map: Not needed.

Additional Notes: If you go down this ladder first , then you will permanently

 ______________
|[Ladder 1-3.6]|

Location:

Contents: Two snake holes, two holes that shoot flying daggers and one 
escape ladder( shown).

Explanation: There is nothing in here for you to get so just get out as quickly
as possible( in fact there isn't a reason that should make you go down this
ladder in the first place). The quickest way is to keep holding left and up as
soon as you start. You will avoid the snakes and reach the escape ladder. No
matter what happens, don't ever go to the upper right side. Ever. The walls
there will shoot flying daggers at you and you will definetaly meet your 
doom.

machine gun power up( rifle upgrade).This will make your rifle fire super fast
bullets and reach the end of the screen you're in( when compared to a few tiles

rifle will be a much more useful weapon than the grenade. Oh and, instead of
firing small balls you now fire big balls! You will lose this upgrade
when you lose a life or finish the mission you're currently in.

horizontal wall( in the same line as the prisoner). Go through the wall, save
the prisoner and leave the shelter. The prisoner, when saved, will give you a
machine gun power up( rifle upgrade).This will make your rifle fire super fast
bullets and reach the end of the screen you're in( when compared to a few tiles
for the rifle bullets). Also the rate of fire is increased. With this, your
rifle will be a much more useful weapon than the grenade. Oh and, instead of
firing small balls you now fire big balls! You will lose this upgrade
when you lose a life or finish the mission you're currently in.

       FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Q: Are you making these questions up?
A: Yes.

Q: Every single one of them?
A: Yeah, now stop bugging me.

Q: What's the difference between this and the Atari 7800/Arcade/Capcom
   Classics Collection versions?
A: All I know is that the Atari 7800, Arcade and CC versions are better.

Q: Where the heck are the binoculars?
A: I don't know. There is one binoculars each mission, in the same place 
   in the same area but I don't know( yet) where that is. In other words, if
   you find out where it's found once, you've found all its locations.
   If someone knows where it's found, please e-mail me.

Q: I reached a final battle area but the soldiers keep coming infinitely.
   What am I doing wrong?
A: What you need to do to trigger a final battle is get close to the escape
   door. The thing that confirms the start of a final battle is a new music 
   tune.

Q: Your FAQ sucks. You give more discriptive explanations in the first mission
   and give good strategies in the other mission. What's up with that?
A: Well at the start the game is easy so you needn't much help. Also, you need
   to get used to the game by yourself so that you can conquer the later 
   missions with my help. Another reason is that I hadn't completed the game
   before finishing the walkthrough for area 2-2 so I didn't know much before
   then.

Q: Hey dude, what's up? [Question already answered in the FAQ].
A: Unlike other authors, I will answer questioned that have answers in the FAQ.
   Be warned though, I check my e-mail only twice a week so it may be 
   faster to find the answer in the FAQ than e-mailing me about it.

Q: Sometimes, while I'm playing, the soldiers disappear. What's going on?
A: Well the game is a little bit too much for the weak NES so sometimes, when
   there are a lot of enemies on the screen and more are about to come, the
   game compensates for this by making some soldiers disappear. Or something
   like that.

Q: Aside from taking Medals of Honor, how can I get additional lives?
A: You'll get an extra life when you reach 20,000 points. You'll then get
   additional one's every 100,000 points, which means when you reach
   120,000, 220,000, 320,000, etc...

Q: I this capcom's first game ever?
A: No, but it was one of its first.

Q: What's the connection between this and Bionic Commando? Also, does this
   game have a sequel?
A: Um, I don't know.

Q: I heard that there's a secret message somewhere. Where is it?
A: If you complete the game with at least (3) lives and (24) grenades, 
   then you will get a special message from the developers.
   (thanks to AdamL for this)

Q: Hey I wanna know the secret message. What is it?
A: Here it is( I think this is it):

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
THANK YOU FOR PLAYING.

YOUR GREAT PLAYER.
   
THIS GAME WAS ENDED.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Q: Is the Table of Contents supposed to be something?
A: Maybe it's a jug?

Q: I can't pause the game. What's going on? Please help!
A: Calm down. The thing is, you can't pause as soon as you start a certain
   area. You need to move forward a bit before you can pause.

Q: 2 Player? What's that? Does the game have cooperative gameplay?
A: No. 2 player mode is just like 1 player mode. The only difference is
   that when you die, a second player starts a new game until he dies. Then
   the game shifts to the first player where he can continue from where he
   last died and so on.

Q: Thanks to your FAQ, I have never seen the game over screen. How does it
   look like?
A: Upon losing all of your lives, you will be taken to the title screen.
   Choose to continue and you will be returned to the start of the last 
   area you were in before losing. You will have default lives and grenades
   and 0 points.
