Tan troops

Coming soon!

Here are stategy's to use in single player levels
On some of the levels, it's easier to get a friend and help you
in the level, each of you can take differnt paths and take out enemies 

Always Strafe, it's easier to cause damage and take less hits that way

Level fun to know info!
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 
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 
Also you can put all the food in one area and watch all the ant hills ants 
come to it!

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 
train going around the arena, if you hover by it, it will drop you a item.
Funness rating- B+


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 
the bottle rocket goes away after it fires it's rocket, also if you have a 
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 
you destroy it it comes back after 5 seconds) Each enemy flag dropped off at 
base is worth 25 points and you must get 100 points to win.
Funness rating-A-


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 
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  
and take it, if you destroy them if they have a flag then you may steal the 
flag from them.
Funness rating-C+


Food fight-Picnic panic
In this game in the middle of the arena there's a machine, the color of the 
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+


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+


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+


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-


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.
