-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to my Front Line FAQ for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This guide
was written using Microsoft Notepad, under Windows XP Home Edition.

Version Number   Release Date         Version Information

Version 1.00     September 8, 2003    First version of the guide submitted to
                                      GameFAQs, essentially complete.

Version 1.01     September 9, 2003    Made some minor corrections and
                                      revisions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 GAME MECHANICS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basically, you control a soldier going through the battlefield, using a gun,
hand grenades, and a couple of tanks to annihilate the enemies and take over
their fortress. This goes on forever, with the enemies becoming a little faster
and smarter with each victory you gain.

The 2 Player mode doesn't add much excitement either. It just let's two people
take turns in playing through the stages, with each turn ending when the
current player's unit dies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  PLAYER UNITS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player Soldier - Wears a blue uniform and a red helmet. This is the basic
                 player unit that is able to shoot a gun, throw hand grenades,
                 and board tanks. The soldier dies with only one hit from any
                 enemy weapon, but its hand grenades are the only weapons
                 capable of destroying the tanks inside the enemy fortresses.

Small Blue Tank - The weaker of the two tanks your soldier can board in. It
                  fires light artillery shells and can be destroyed with one
                  hit from any enemy weapon.

Large Blue Tank - The stronger of the two tanks your soldier can board in. It
                  fires heavy artillery shells and can be destroyed slowly
                  with one hit from any enemy weapon, or instantly with two
                  consecutive hits from any enemy weapon.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  ENEMY UNITS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enemy Soldiers - Wears green uniforms and blue helmets. These soldiers can be
                 found at the first half of each stage, up to the point where
                 you are able to board your own tank. Their only weapons are
                 guns similar to your soldier's gun, and they can be killed
                 with one hit from any of your weapons.

Small Green Tanks - The weaker of the two types of mobile enemy tanks, found
                    at the second half of each stage. It fires light artillery
                    shells and can be destroyed with one hit from any tank
                    weapon or the soldier's hand grenades.

Large Green Tanks - The stronger of the two types of mobile enemy tanks, found
                    at the second half of each stage. It fires medium artillery
                    shells and can be destroyed slowly with one hit from any
                    tank weapon, or instantly with two consecutive hits from
                    any tank weapon or a hit from the soldier's hand grenades.

Large Green Fortress Tank - The immobile tank guarding the enemy's fortress,
                            found at the end of each stage. It fires medium
                            artillery shells and can only be destroyed using
                            the soldier's hand grenades.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           GAME TIPS/BASIC STRATEGIES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The score counter starts from the value 0, and the highest score possible is
99,999 Points. But when you go over that value, the counter starts over from
the value 00,000.

You start out with 3 lives, and you get extra lives as you score increases.

The only enemies you actually need to kill/destroy are the fortress tanks at
the end of ach stage. You can dodge and ignore all of the other enemies if you
want.

Once you are on the second half of the stages, you can no longer turn back.

The tank that you get to use at the second half of each stage is determined
at random.

The second halves of the stages are wider than the first.

Use the terrain to your advantage. Use the various obstacles to block out enemy
fire and throw grenades from safety.

All of the enemies can kill you through physical contact, even if you are
riding on a tank.

The player soldier's hand grenades and the large blue tank's heavy artillery
deals area-effect damage, allowing you to kill multiple enemies with one shot.

The player soldier's hand grenades are the only weapons than can be shot over
obstacles and enemies.

If you are hit once when riding the large blue tank, you can actually repair
the damage by exiting and re-entering the tank.

The enemies can make double shots, two quick and successive shots from their
weapons. This can kill you instantly even when you are riding the large blue
tank.

The enemies become faster and smarter with each stage that you complete, and
they also use double shots more often.
