of this to make your own FAQ out of it. Unless you have MY permission DO
NOT take anything at all from this guide. Don't edit, don't do anything to
it and submit it without e-mailing me with permission first. You can
print it out, but only for personal use, no selling this! Summing it

My ICQ# is 34601221
My webpage is http://www.dcmagus.com
My MSN contact is dcmagus@hotmail.com, but any email sent to that

Be warned that I'm only on the net twice a week, don't expect replies
from me which are ten minutes after you've sent the mail. Here's some
guidelines about sending me mail:

1.Make sure you put the title of the game you're asking about in the
  subject. I've made a fair few FAQs, and it's a bit hard to work
  things out sometimes.

2.If it's an FAQ, make sure that it's not already in the guide!!! If
  it is, I'll do my best to ignore it.

  If it's not in there, make sure that the details you provide
  are, well, DETAILED, and not sketchy. Examples are "Hi need to know
  how to get past this part, i'm in a room and stuck", I need to know
  where you are, etc.

3.Ask nicely. So far, most people have, but if your mail goes along
  the lines of "Hi, need code for B2, reply within the next hour
  otherwise I'll bomb you" will not get you anywhere.

That's it. Sorry for being a pain, but it had to be said.

1)Introduction
---------------------------------------------------------------------

First it started off with the Tank Wars craze. A simple, yet extremely
fun way to blow your friends up. Then came along the release of the
very popular Worms. Turn based combat, using Worms and with hilarious
weapons? Sweet!

In 1998, Liero was made. While not well known, while not being leased
to a publisher, and while only being a small DOS game which people
could download off the net, got rid of the turn-based system and opted
for real-time combat.

And hell did it work. While only with support for two players, and no
internet/modem/LAN support, it's still a damn fine game for what,
380kb? www.mikrobitti.fi is the place to get this game from.

Like Worms, it's about you being a worm, and trying to kill the other
player in a confined area, full of dirt and rocks. There are plenty
of weapons, and "built in" to your worm is the ability to dig, jump
and use a ninja rope at your will.

There's also a strategical element needed to play Liero. In the vast
array of options, you can set loading times so that you either have
to wait for your weapon to reload after you've emptied it, or you
can have a full on slugfest where you don't have to reload at all.

The many weapons available range from the Minigun, a high-powered,
fast-firing gun, to the Mine, step on it and Ka-Boom!, to the
super Chiquita Bomb, think Banana Bomb with many more particles.
At the start of each round, you get to pick five, and only five
weapons to use. In game, however, there are the bonus crates.

Of course, being a DOS game, and only 380kb, the graphics aren't
too flash hot. But, the sounds are pretty good, with each explosion
sounding like...well, an explosion.

Other options include the ability to change colour of your worms,
change the blood value, number of lives etc. There are also a couple
of game modes: Kill'em All, Tag, Capture the Flag and Simple CTF. All
of these add up to the lastability of Liero.

Even though the graphics aren't that good, and there's only support
for two players on the same PC, it's a mighty fine effort for a DOS
game. For those of you who thought DOS was dead, well, the graphics
are, wake up and smell the aroma of worms burnt to a crisp. Now that's
gaming.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
2)Weapon List
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Bazooka

Type: Projectile

Fires a single missile, for moderate damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Big Nuke

Type: Bomb

This bomb rocks! Launch it, and then after a while, it will seperate
into many different parts, and then all of those parts will detonate.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Blaster

Type:Projectile

Fires a round ball, which detonates when it hits something, leaving a
fairly large crater.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Booby Trap

Type: Bomb

Annoy the opponents with these. They look exactly like weapon and health
pickups, but they will blow up in your face when you touch them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Bouncy Larpa

Type:Projectile

(No info yet)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Bouncy Mine

Type: Bomb

The most annoying weapon. Once fired, bounces around a LOT and hits for
a lot of damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Cannon

Type:Projectile

Fires a cannonball. Gravity applies, as when shot straight, seems to
fall down in an arc a bit. Nice damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Chaingun

Type:Projectile

Rapid firing gun. While not as fast as the Minigun, it's almost as
damaging. Hold down to fire very rapidly.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Chiquita Bomb

Type: Bomb

The mother of all bombs. Shoot it, and it will explode, sending out
lots of "bananas" everywhere, and each of them will detonate, lots of
damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Cluster Bomb

Type: Bomb

Like a Chiquita Bomb, but less damage, less particles.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Crackler

Type:Projectile/Bomb

Fire it, and a spinning bullet will come out, and it will spit out
small bombs which will deal a lot a damage in confined spaces.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Dart

Type:Projectile

Weakest weapon. Fire one dart for small damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Dirtball

Type:Projectile

When it settles, a clump of dirt will appear. Rebuild torn landsacpes,
hide yourself. It's pretty effective.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Doomsday

Type:Projectile

Fire two missiles at a fast rate. They do nice damage and the fast
fire rate is extremely handy too.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Explosives

Type: Bomb

Fire these, and the explosives will detonate after a set time or when
it hits something. Not that much damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fan

Type:Projectile

Blow things away! Bombs, projectiles, even the other worm!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Flamer

Type:Projectile

Shoots out flame. Not much distance, really not worth it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Float Mine

Type: Bomb

The mines which don't move much, but hang around in the air. Can be
knocked about by explosions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Gauss Gun

Type:Projectile

High powered, fast and deadly bullets are shot from these. You could
take out a 1000 health dude in about 5 shots.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Grasshopper

Type: Bomb

Once it blows up, another one will appear and detonate, then another
etc. It'll go on for about 5 bombs. Effective.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Greenball

Type:Projectile

A faster version of the Dirtball, but this time you have green dirt.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Grenade

Type: Bomb

Like a cluster bomb, but much, much, smaller explosions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Handgun

Type:Projectile

Shoot it once for okay damage. Has a laser sight.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Hellraider

Type:Projectile/Bomb

Shoot it, and the missiles will arc away, then detonate and split into
more detonating parts. Annoying and really not that effective unless
you are suicidal.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Larpa

Type:Projectile

(No info yet)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Laser

Type:Projectile

Hold on to it, and this cuts through dirt like a knife cuts through
butter. Lock on the worm for more damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Mine

Type: Bomb

Set it, and if someone touches it....BOOM!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Minigun

Type:Projectile

Best rapid firing gun. Fastest rate and best damage.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini Nuke

Type: Bomb

Small Big Nuke. Not too good, as explosions are small.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini Rockets

Type:Projectile

Like Doomsday, but only one missile and more damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Missile

Type:Projectile

High damage missiles which you can control with the directional keys!
Must have.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Napalm

Type: Bomb

Shoot it, and whatever it hits will be engulfed in flame. For some
reason, slows game down.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
RB Rampage

Type:Projectile

Shoot a bullet, and it will start bouncing. It will detonate after a
while.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Rifle

Type:Projectile

High powered bullet, deals a heap of damage. Laser sighting is great
as well. Too bad it's got major kickback.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Shotgun

Type:Projectile

Boom! Boom! Each shot splits into little particles which eat through
dirt and worms.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Spikeballs

Type: Bomb

Very, very, effective. Shoot these, and they are like razor blades,
slicing through the opposition. Then the blow up, for more damage.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Super Shotgun

Type:Projectile

Probably the most effective weapon. Not much kickback, but it's made
up for by a high powered, big blast radius projectile.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Uzi

Type:Projectile

Just like a Chain/Minigun, just a little weaker.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Winchester

Type:Projectile

(No info yet)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Zimm

Type:Projectile

(No info yet)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
3)Strategies
---------------------------------------------------------------------

-When picking weapons, you really want to have a good mix of bombs
and projectiles. Always pick the Minigun or Super Shotgun, they are
extremely effective. Some good combinations:

Minigun
Chiquita Bomb
Super Shotgun
Doomsday
Grasshopper

Minigun
Mini Rockets
Crackler
Grasshopper
Gauss Gun

And so on. Experiment!

-Don't forget the ever useful Ninja Rope (Hold down Change Weapon and
press Jump). It's very handy to get you out of any situation, where
there's somewhere to swing to.

-If you have reload times at 0, and lots of health, here's a way to
clear out plenty of land...Missiles! Since they can be remote-controlled,
you can terrorize your opponent while you're at it.
