Level 1- You can get 7 green troops and 2 green veicles to follow you, you get 1 rifle carrier and two jeeps by just waiting at the start, after you go past the base another rifle carier will follow you if you save him, in the area where you pick up the supplies will be two rocket guys battling tanks, destroy the tanks and they'll follow you. Now follow the path to the portal and go near the mountains to the right, you'll see two green rifle carriers and destroy all neaby Tans and they'ss follow you, now keep on going and you'll see one last rifle carier, now after they are all following you play some fun games like "Follow the leader" or go back to base and see how long they take to come back! Level 6- Put as much food in a green base and see how long you can hold them off! Also you can put all the food in one area and watch all the ant hills ants come to it! 4.Multiplayer stategy's and info Everything you need to know about multiplayer and more! Pleasee e-mail me strategies and scenarios! Note:The helicopter's have the same stats from the single player game. Also I give school type grades on the games, also you can hurt your friends helicopter's by fring weapons at them in the games. The games Bug Hunt-Chew Chew Bug B Q In this scenario you have to kill 100 points of bugs (Big insects are worth around 8 points, small ones are worth about 8) before your opponent does, you battle in a level 3 like arena with a indistructible train going around the arena, if you hover by it, it will drop you a item. Funness rating- B+ Strategies- Bug Hunt-Crispy Criters Same scenario before but with a twist,the bugs are more prone to attack you, there's a magnifying glass that's trying to destroy eveyone and sometimes when you destroy a buy, it will transform into four ladybugs, a bottlerocket launcher and others, you have to get 100 points top win. Funness rating-B- Strategies- Remember, when you kill a bug that transforms into a bottle rocket, the bottle rocket goes away after it fires it's rocket, also if you have a magnifying glass chasing you, try going over a bug or anothe helicopter to distract it. Flag-nab-it-Fort Frenzy It's capture the flag! You must steal the others guy's flag from their base (their base is just a guard tower near the enemy's flag that attacks you and when you destroy it it comes back after 5 seconds) Each enemy flag dropped off at your base is worth 25 points and you must get 100 points to win. Funness rating-A- Strategies- Flag-Nab-it-Freezer Burn In this one there are paper cups are all over the place, if you destroy the cups there will either be nothing, a powerup, or a red flag, bring 3 red flags to your base and you win, enemies can't steal the flag from you if you dropped it off your base, but there are 3 UFO's hideen undeneath the 3 seperate cups and if you release them they will barrage anyone near to them with lasers and there hard to destroy, sometimes the UFO's may find a flag underneath cups and take it, if you destroy them if they have a flag then you may steal the flag from them. Funness rating-C+ Strategies- Food fight-Picnic panic In this game in the middle of the arena there's a machine, the color of the water in the machine will be the color of one of the human opponeats, drop food into the machine and helicopters and Tanks of the color the water is will start coming out, they will attack any enemies near them, the object of the game is too put 100 points of food in the machine and have units by the machine of your color to win, if the color of the water in the machine isn't yours you can find a crayon lying around of one guys color and if you drop it into the machine the machine will start making units the color of the crayon you put in it. Funness rating-A+ Strategies- Food fight-Cherry Suprise In this game you must bring a chicken leg, a apple, a cupcake, and a ham can to your base to reveal a doughnut in the middle of the arena, in order for this to happen you must bring the food mentiond earlier and dop them off at your base, a countdown will occur and at the end of the countdown the doughnut will appear, you must them bring the doughnut to your base, you can delay the countdown by throwing a cherry bomb to theirr base, but watch out dragonflies will attack you. Funness rating- C+ Strategies- Rescue-Don't feed the crabs In this game you must save ten scientist before the bugs kill them, the first to rescue ten scientist wins, but there's a lot of bugs waiting to kill you.There's really nothing to talk about here. Funness rating- C+ Stategies- Rescue-Tide pool terror This game is very much like "Don't feed the crabs" except for differnt Bugs and the scientist seem to live longer, the same rules as above, this game is kinda like a "Expansion" to the the crab one. Funness rating-C- Strategies- 5.FAQ Q:How do I defeat the robot in the last level? A:This strategy is best done with two people, but one person could do it if but it would be harder. First, ignore the cherry bomb on the battery thing, that does not do anything in the mission, go toward the robot and switch to your paratroopers, fire them off and while doing this fire your machine gun, then after your paratroopers are done strafe around him and try to avoid the gun fire, now fire your naplam at him, keep on doing it until you run out of naplam, now use your laser aganist him, if you run out of laser, use your 4 missles, while doing all of this keep on firing your machine gun, this is the best strategy used on him. 6.End notes This info should help you on this game enough so you can win, I hope you enjoyed it.
