Graphically, the game developers have opted for an overhead view and a revamped, cartoonish style, but the gameplay and storyline scream "Classic Army Men action!" The despicable Tan General Plastro whips up another fiendishly clever plan for world domination, so it's up to Sarge (the Green Army's resident Rambo) to rally his men for another valiant attack.
The gameplay is similar to Army Men for Game Boy Color, consisting mostly of runnin' and gunnin' through a human world where potted plants can easily be mistaken for redwoods. Players will guide Sarge through 17 clever environments, occasionally using tanks or gunboats to terrorise the Tans.
· Travel between the Human World and Plastic Soldier World.
· 17 Environments and sub-levels to explore.
· Play as fearless Bravo Company leader Sarge or as Ace Reporter Vikki
· Terrorise the Tans with five unique weapons: M16, M60, Flamethrower, Bazooka and Grenades
· Foes include Tan Soldiers, Aliens, Dust Mites, Beetles, Robots, Wasps and the evil Plastro
· Pilot tanks and boats
· Experience a variety of challenges, from full-on combat to challenging puzzles and perplexing mazes.
· Blow up vehicles, piggy banks, electrical outlets, tennis balls and other objects to find valuable power-ups and puzzle pieces
· Use the Password entry feature to come back to the game at any point
The Army Men franchise shines on Game Boy Advance, with responsive play control and bright, vibrant graphics. For anyone who's ever savoured the smell of plastic soldiers smouldering under a magnifying glass on a hot summer day, Army Men Advance delivers a solid blast of nostalgic fun.
