Return To Your Chopper |
While playing the game, hold SELECT and press A and B at the same time. You will return to your chopper on the overhead map screen. You can save your game and move around the map. This is helpful when you find yourself in an unescapable spot or need to select a different item.
In order to gain more hit points (up to 5, for a total of 8), collect as many cartridges from defeated enemies as you can. An easy way to collect the cartridges is to find a communications room that has an enemy soldier nearby. Kill the soldier, take the cartridge, then enter the room. Leave the room, and the soldier will have returned! You can do this as many times as you'd like to stock up on hit points.
I have found two ways of getting promoted in this game. To my knowledge, getting promoted only changes the color of your uniform.
1.) In Area 4, go to the place with the waterfall. You should be on the lowest platform. When you get to the edge with the skull and crossbones, swing across. There will be a Comm room there where you will need to use the Green decoder. (You can also tap the message to listen in on a dumb conversation.) Then talk to your superior officer and he will tell you that you have opened Area 16. There are no enemies in Area 16, just one big obstacle course.
2.) The second promotion is when you get to the blue room where you have to swing on the lamp post in Area 11. When you drop down the next hole, instead of swinging on the lights, swing on the ceiling until you get to the red platform. Then pull yourself up and keep going up and swing on that ceiling. Swing to the right and grab the red platform and pull yourself up. Swing on the lamp post and fall into the second hole that you encounter. There will be a Comm room there where you will need the Yellow decoder. (Tap this message for cooking tips.) After speaking to your superior officer you will have opened Area 17. This place is a sewer with many raptor type enemies. Good luck!!
