    [--------------------|IV) INTRODUCTION TO THE GAME|-------------------]
        This is one of the few launch games for the Gameboy Advance. Once 
    again it was made by 3DO. I have to say that this game isn't all that 
    bad. It isn't the greatest, but it's a lot better then the Gameboy 
    Color games. I think 3DO just has to experiment a little with this new 
    system so each game they make will just get better and better.

    that you encounter. Go down until you see 3 vehicles. Shoot or grenade 
    them until they blow up. Continue down and grab the Health box. Go down 
    some more until you see another vehicle. Blow that one up too. An extra 
    fun little thing you can do is blow up the barrels lying around. Go 
    right until you come to a fence. 10 tans will come out of the really 
    long building. Go up to the circle in the road. Now go up until you see 
    some walls on the right. Shoot the 3 tans standing around the walls. 
    Now you have to shoot all 5 of the cardboard tans. They have to all be 
    down at once so find the fastest route to do so. The keys will pop out 
    when they are all down. It may take a while for you to get them. You 
    have finished your first task. Go up until you see a vehicle go back 
    and forth. Shoot the vehicle and be careful it can hurt you if you

    [----------------------------|C) AREA 41|-----------------------------]
    Mission Briefing:
        Using alien technology, Plastro is planning to launch an assault.

    alien world, Area 41.

        2. Gain entry to Hangar 13.
    
        You start out on some grass. Shoot any tans you encounter. Go up 
    but be careful. You have to shoot the control tower but it has a spike 
    that attacks you. Then go through the gate that just blew up on the 
    left. In this next area one of the tans has a machine gun when you 
    shoot him. When you walk in go to your left as far as you can and go up 
    until you reach the grenades. Take the grenades and go up until you 
    reach a gate. Shoot or grenade the gate until it breaks. Go through it 
    and go as far left as possible. Go up and destroy the control tower 
    there. If you want to, on the right of the tower is a building with 10 
    tans that come out. Tan number 4 will drop a machine gun. Go left past 
    the tower into the next section. Be careful because there is a airplane 
    runway that has airplanes moving on it and they can hurt you. Figure 
    out the pattern to the planes and cross the strip when safe. At the 
    bottom of the left side is a bunch of mines. They are the flasing dots. 
    Be careful not to step on them for you will get hurt. Make your way 
    through them heading left. Ignore the gate and guards for now and head 
    all the way left and grab the health box. Then go all the way up and 
    then right to the next control tower. Destroy the tower and you have 
    completed your first task. Go on to the right and go up through the 
    gate. Go to the left and grab the machine gun. Go up and grab the 
    grenades. Go all the way up and grab the health box. Shoot the top 
    truck to get a machine gun. Go right and shoot the doors open to Hangar
