Feel free to ask me any questions about this game by e-mailing me at [email protected] Ben (Goku_549). Armorines Project S.W.A.R.M. Introduction Where have we seen this before? An overpopulating race of alien insects from another galaxy has landed on earth – the perfect place to colonize. The invading oversized bugs are ruthless, instantly destroying all humans, putting the fate of the world in jeopardy. Thankfully, the military has a secret, untested battle suits that may be able to withstand the deadly insect attacks. OK, so it’s not exactly an original storyline, but amazing graphics and the powerful Turok graphics engine make Armorines wildly addicting. Characters Name: Tony Lewis Rank: Private Age: 38 Height: 6’ 0’’ Defensive Weapon of Choice: Armor Shield Projectile Weapon of Choice: Shotgun Style Explosive Weapon of Choice: Rocket Launcher Name: Kyra Lane Rank: Private Age: 27 Height: 5’8’’ Defensive Weapon of Choice: Tazer Projectile Weapon of Choice: Sub-Machine Gun Explosive Weapon of Choice: Grenade Launcher Enemies Soldier Bugs Soldiers are the first line of defense. They are most effective when they attack in groups. Soldiers rush in for close-range attacks. Guard Bugs Guards can attack from a distance with projectile weapons. They are intelligent and are typically used to protect the brains and queens. Brain Bugs It’s no surprise that the brains are the most intelligent bugs. They organize the guards and soldiers and are also powerful fighters. The Queen The queen will not move from her hatchery unless absolutely necessary. If someone gets past her servants, she will ferociously attack. The Weapons Hint: When you need to destroy a swarm of bugs instantly, arm yourself with a weapon that has a secondary, more powerful attack. When you hold and release the Z Button, your weapon will produce a devastating blast. Only certain weapons have secondary fire. Plasma Shotgun Private Lewis automatically starts the game with this simple weapon. The Plasma Gun isn’t very powerful and isn’t equipped with a secondary fire option. Sub-Machine Gun This basic weapon emits single shoots, although you can perform rapid fire by holding the Z Button. Private Lane is armed with this at the start of the game. Tazer Kyra Lane’s Tazer may look fancy, but it’s not a very effective weapon. The Tazer can be used in close combat, or to fire weak energy bursts. Rocket Launcher The Rocket Launcher shoots straight and doesn’t offer secondary fire, but each blast can take out an arm of bugs. Use your rockets wisely and sparingly. Grenade Launcher This handy tool catapults grenades with a lofting arc, sending explosives bouncing towards the enemy – good for hitting they’re hard-to-reach places. Mine Mines are fun to play with but difficult to use effectively. Try getting close to a bug, sticking a mine on it and running quickly for cover! Thumper By strategically waving a thumper, you can attract insects away from their hiding places and lead them out. Once they’re in the open attack fast! Laser Rifle The Laser Rifle projects a long, powerful stream that can be used to knock out enemies or obstacles. But this gun is not good for a rapid-fire attack. Chemical Gun Green gobs of goo are ejected from this unique weapon and can burn through big bugs or bothersome walls. Once again, it’s not a good weapon for rapid-fire. Sonic Cutter This is another unique instrument, which fires a spiraling spray that can cut through anything. The Sonic Cutter will help you defeat the tough queen bugs. Brood Launcher The Brood Launcher is a strange tentacle-like contraption that can collect the hatching eggs and then launch them at the enemies. Staff of Pharoah This long wand with three prongs can pack a powerful punch, especially with the massive secondary fire feature. It also fires weaker rapid shots. Cheats Cheats can be either earned by getting Cheat Flags, or can be input before playing the game. The Cheats are near the end of this FAQ. Unidentifiable Species Detected In Siberia In the snowy fields of Siberia, an unknown race of enormous insects has taken over the missile silos in an attempt to steal human technology. The Armorines have been flown in to destroy the invaders and save the scientists. But most importantly, the military must get to the missiles before the bugs do. Protect any humans you find, because they will help you complete the mission. And get ready for an intense bug-bashing monorail ride through dark mines. Siberia Missions 1 & 2 Objectives: Collect the goggles as soon as you arrive. Climb the watch tower and deactivate the energy fence. Find and escort Dr. Delaney back to the power station. Ride the monorail and blast the bugs. Restore power to the monorail. Deactivate the second energy fence and enter the silo. Siberia Missions 1 & 2 Get the Goggles After running off the chopper, look behind the first room and blast the crate. You’ll desperately need the goggles to find your way around in the dark. Find the Laser Rifle After blasting a few bugs, head to the right and go up the ramp. Around the corner you’ll find a room. Flip the switch in the room to open the warehouse door, but watch out for attackers. Then make your way to the warehouse and collect the Laser Rifle and some ammunition. Deactivate the Energy Field After roaming around the area, you’ll discover that an energy field is blocking the only open path. Climb to the top of the watch tower to deactivate the energy fence. Bugs will appear from under the ground. Quickly head toward the monorail tracks and follow the path. Dr. Delaney Has the Code You’ll reach a tiny path on the left side before the tunnel entrance. Walk up the path and into the room to find Dr. Delaney. You must safely transport Delaney back to the power station so that he can activate the monorail. If the doctor dies, your mission is over. Take a Ride Once the power is restored, find the monorail. You can climb into the car through the opening on the right side. The ride will automatically start, putting you in control of the rotating gun. Keep firing and blast the swarm of bugs before they can hop into the monorail. Don’t worry you have infinite ammo with the monorail gun. Navigating the Mines As the wild ride continues, you’ll be blasting insects right and left. Occasionally, the monorail will come to an abrupt stop and you’ll need to jump off and find a switch. On the first stop, you must restore the monorail’s power. Find a ladder that’s hidden in the dark. Not So Fast After finding the switch to deactivate another electric fence, you’ll be able to enter the missile silo. But before you can finish the mission, an enormous insect will blast you with lasers. Run for cover to the right side of the dirt mound, then try for a direct shot to the head. NOTE: YOU DON’T HAVE TO KILL THE GIANT INSECT. YOU CAN JUST RUN RIGHT PAST IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL. Siberia Missions 3 & 4 Objectives: Free scientists so they can open blast doors. Launch the three missiles that bugs have not obtained. Gain access to the main control room. Free Dr. Easterbrook and talk with him. Get back to the surface. Destroy the gigantic bug blocking the path. Collect the two cheat-code flags. Get back to the landing pad and move on. Siberia Missions 3 & 4 Save the Scientists As you make your way through the maze of the missile silos, you’ll find several scientists trapped by bugs. Some are being guarded in rooms while others are lock in bathroom stalls! Save as many as you can – especially Dr. Easterbrook, who will help you finish the mission. Launch the Missiles The bugs are hoping to use the missiles against the humans. Three missiles have already been launched, but you can still save the remaining three. Press the button on the far wall of the launch area to shoot the missiles into the sky and make them eventually self-destruct. Collect Mines, Blow Down Gate You should be able to destroy one missile, but the other two are inaccessible. Find a pile of mines behind a desk in the room with the large gate. After gathering the mines, use on to knock down the gate. Then you’ll be able to find and destroy the remaining two missiles. Blast the Octagonal Door Dr. Easterbrook has locked himself in the main control room to keep away from the deadly insects. To set him free, you must first use a mine to blow open the octagonal door. Then you can access a switch that unlocks the main control room and releases the doctor. Avalanche! The only way to get past the piles of snow is to plant a mine and create an avalanche. Once it is clear, move ahead. The Hidden Doorway Once you reach the main control room, it will seem like there is no way out. Look for a doorway under the stairs and flip on your goggles. You’ll have to jump over some boxes and push a button to open a door that will lead you out of the building and back into the snow. One Big Butt Save your missiles for the enormous insect blocking the monorail path. Avoid his deadly rays while constantly shooting. Grab the Cheat Flags After all this hard work, it’s about time for a reward. In the room where you found Dr. Delaney, collect the Sonic Cutter cheat flag. There’s another Cheat Flag in the one-story bunker next to the two large cannons. You’ll need the flags later in the game. Siberian Missions: Complete Lost In The Jungle As it turns out, the insects have taken over an old temple near the jungles of South America and are using it as a breeding ground to hatch eggs and expand their army. The Armorines must infiltrate the surroundings, destroy all eggs and uncover an experimental weapon. These missions involve more puzzles and mazes, as well as badder bugs, including the deadly Jungle Queen. Collect as many extra weapons as you can and strap on those goggles! Jungle Mission 1 Objectives: Escape the tunnel by blasting the bricks. Enter the courtyard and clear out the attacking bugs. Activate the Stairway to the Sun. Infiltrate the Aztec Temple. Seek out the experimental weapon. Destroy all 34 bug eggs. Jungle Mission 1 Road to Nowhere You start in a tunnel that leads to a broken bridge long drop to your death. Looks for the bricks on the left-hand side and blast your way out. Round ‘Em Up, Shoot ‘Em Down Once you enter the open court, attackers will start appearing from all sides. Before long, you’ll be overwhelmed. Collect as many rockets as you can, then use Thumper mines to attract the bugs and shoot them all down in one blast. The Thumper will explode after a few seconds. A Maze In Mexico Large walls block off sections of the courtyard. You must step on the short stones that are protruding from the ground to open passages. Make your way around the area, collecting mines and rockets, and be prepared to take a long swim. I hope you brought your swimsuit. Stairway to the Sun Notice the large crates to the right of the main entrance. First, you’ll have to figure out how to lower the front ones. Then you’ll have to jump on top of them and step on the stone, triggering the gigantic stairs. Climb up the stairs and open the path to the Aztec Temple. Entering the Temple You’re in for plenty more swimming, so you’ll want to save your strength and find a better way over the moat in front of the temple. Stepping on the stone should do the trick. Once inside, look for the middle switch at the back of the room, then shoot it to lower a large column. Time for a Dip To collect the Chemical Gun, you’ll need to dive into one of the drowned passages. Get your head above water and shoot the light brick near the roof. That will open an underwater wall, which is located to the left. Inside, you’ll be able to collect some goodies. Scramble Some Eggs Your third objective is to destroy all 34 bug eggs before they can hatch. You’ll find eggs in three different locations: Most can be destroyed in to gigantic hatchery rooms, and the others are hidden in the ceiling. After blasting the embryos, watch out for angry parents! Jungle Missions 2 & 3 Objectives: Kill all the bugs on your way to the hatchery. Climb the old ruins and locate the hatchery. Incinerate the large eggs. Wander through the caves and destroy all eggs. Blast through the tunnels and explore. Locate the entrance to the queen’s lair. Battle the queen’s protectors. Finish off the Jungle Queen. Jungle Missions 2 & 3 Lock On As you wander through the foggy jungle, use the target lock on the standard weapon to spot and kill hard-to-see insects. Big, Bad Brain Bug This gigantic creature has more than just intelligence . The bug you’ll encounter in the jungle is fast, powerful and deadly. You’ll have to run for cover and try to hit the beast from a distance. Moving forward will only put you closer to the Brain’s treacherous grasp. Buzz Off The flying bugs are more of an annoyance than a true threat. Get them in sight and take them down before they fire back. Sneak Attack Guards will be shooting at you from atop an old pyramid. Find a safe place and take them out from a distance. Then race up the ruins and spot the hatchery on the other side. From high above, you can destroy the eggs in the hatchery. Be sure to hit the big egg in the middle. Going Around In Circles? As you begin the second mission and advance through the jungle, attackers will swarm you from all directions. This is another good place to use a thumper mine. You’ll quickly feel like you’re going in circles – look for a blocked cave entrance on the side of a hill and blast it. More Rockets to Blast Fallen rocks block three separate tunnels. You should be able to advance through an opening by discharging two rockets to create a hole. Move carefully through the tunnel on the left. Although it may seem impossible to slip through the rockslide, you will fit. Leap of Faith When you reach the sudden drop, abandon all fear and take the plunge. You’ll go splashing into water without a scratch. One-On-One With the Jungle Queen Actually, it’s more like one-on-twenty. The queen doesn’t budge until absolutely necessary, and she has plenty of protectors to keep her safe. But once you get close enough, she will finally stir and release a terrifying attack. Aim for her body, then her claws, and finally her head. After a while, she’ll disappear and attempt to replenish her strength. In the meantime, fend off her many minions. Jungle Missions: Complete Conquering The Volcano The bugs have targeted a volcano lab in Hawaii, where they’ve trapped more scientists and started several hatcheries. Your job is to destroy the breeding bugs, save the scientists and finish off the Volcano Queen. These missions are frustrating, because much of the area’s visibility is very low. Goggles are a necessity. Walk slowly and look carefully for hidden openings – most are in unlikely places. Stay alert and try not to shoot fellow humans! Volcano Missions 1 & 2 Objectives: Destroy eight bug breeding holes. Find the crashed bug pod. Gain access to the research base. Find the security key. Gain access to the lower research labs. Volcano Missions 1 & 2 Home Wrecker After salvaging what’s left of the crashed ship, go through the tunnel and spot the bug hole behind the busted tank. Drop a mine and blow it to pieces. Avoid the Lava Before reaching the pool of lava, search for a nearly invisible cave on the right side. Don’t attempt to jump the lava pit, or your game will come to an end. After traveling through the tunnels and crossing the narrow bridge, look for a thumper and a Sonic Cutter underwater. Locked Out After finding your way through a few more dark tunnels and blasting your way past a few more pesky insects, you’ll come to a couple of blocked passages. The switch behind the statute will open the first side door, and the switch inside will release the closed gate. Finding the Crashed Bug Pods Not only is the waterfall refreshing to look at, it’s a passage to the bug pod. Enter the hidden tunnel behind the waterfall and follow the ledge to the left. A seemingly dead-end cave will lead to a clearing. To advance, place a mine on the pod and clear the path. Pipe Dreams To get to the research facility, you will have to travel through a series of large pipes. Turning the first valve will give you access to the pipes. After moving through the first passage, climb up into the next one. Continue to twist all the valves to gain access. Make the Jump Once you reach the fallen bridge, turn left and search for the exposed pipe. As always, your goggles will help your vision in this dark area. Try jumping down and landing on the protruding pipe. Alternatively, you can make your way around to the right and blast more bugs. Power Up and Haul Out You’re very close to completing the second mission successfully! The shiny silver object sitting on the ledge is an access key to the main generator room. Once inside the room, you must activate power to the lift and ride the elevator down to the research labs. Volcano Missions 3 & 4 Objectives: Blast openings and crawl through lab tunnels. Locate the missing scientist and collect bomb beacons. Shoot rock formations to continue decent. Blast loose rocks on the ceiling to cross lava. Run from flowing lava and climb to safety. Find and destroy the three queen eggs. Drop smart bomb beacons in three egg hatcheries. Escape the nesting area before detonation. Defeat the Volcano Queen. Volcano Missions 3 & 4 Get On Your Knees After straining your eyes trying to reach the volcano lab, it’s a relief to be able to see again! But that won’t last long. Blast obstacles to uncover secret passages to other rooms. Tap Down on the Control Pad to get on your knees and crawl through the small ducts. Trail Blazing After finding the missing scientist and collecting the bomb beacons, you’ll spend more time wandering around the base, flipping your goggles on and off. When you reach what appears to be a dead end, shoot at the loose rock to create a new path for yourself. Outrun the Lava Sounds easy, right? Believe it or not, lava can move pretty quickly. After jumping down into the hot liquid, start racing in the opposite direction, with guns blazing to clear out attackers. As you reach the far end of the tunnel, climb your way up to the large opening. 1:30 and Counting As if there weren’t enough bugs on the loose, more eggs are about to hatch. Luckily, you’re ready to blow the area to pieces. Clear out the attackers and plant the bombs. Be sure to know the correct route to escape, because you’ll have only 1:30 before mass destruction. Finish Off the Queen The Volcano Queen is very similar to the Jungle Queen. Once again, try to hit her body, then her claws, then her head. Like the Jungle Queen, the Volcano Queen will try to restore some of her energy and send her guards after you. The surrounding area has several places to duck and hide, shielding you from the deadly rays. Also, rockets and nails are on the ground in abundance. Collect as many as possible. Volcano Missions: Complete Not Over Until The Last Bug Is Squashed The last of the three war heads has landed in Egypt, where the Armorines will have to destroy the remaining bugs on earth. But to ensure that the aliens never return, you’ll also be sent into space to find the mother ship and finish off the race for good.
