Main Menu
=========
On the Main Menu, you have few options. You have Save, Load and Play. 
That's it! At the top of the screen is your game "score". Home kills
and Away Kills. Hopefully you can keep the Away Kills at 0. Home is
how many enemy soldiers you have killed, and Away is how many of your
troops have died in action. This will be displayed on the screen below
also. Every time a member of your forces dies, his grave will appear on
the hill.
To the left is a Column with two sub sections - Heroes and Squad.
Heroes is the men that have been KIA (Killed in Action), and Sqaud
is your current gang of no-hopers.
Beside each of their names is a symbol denoting their rank. As I'm not an
expert on U.S. Military badges, I don't know what they mean, but if someone
could link me to a website where I could find out...

Main Menu Controls
==================
A:     Selects Option
B:     Nothing
C:     Nothing
Start: Starts Next Level

In-Game
=======
The idea of Cannon Fodder is to wipe out the opposition without getting your
men killed. This may sound easy enough, but one hit and you're dedeaded. 
That's pronounced di-ded-ed, btw, and is an AlaskaFox trademark phrase. You
may also have to destroy buildings. To do this you will have to use Grenades
or shoot barrels. The game is easy enough to get into, and once you're in
it's pretty hard to get out of. (Like the Matrix, I suppose, but what is the
Matrix?)

In-Game Controls
================
A:     Move soldiers to selected point
B:     Shoot gun (Use A+B together to fire grenades/rockets)
C:     Nothing
Start: Pauses the game/selects menu



Walkthrough Terms
=================
Password:           Before every Mission you're given a password. To see your
                    current password, look at the Save screen. To start from
                    a previous position, use the Load screen to enter old
                    passwords.
Briefing:           What you have to do in the mission. It will always be
                    either (or both) "Kill All Enemy"(sic) where you have to
                    kill all the enemies or "Destroy Enemy Buildings" where
                    you have to (you've guessed it) destroy all the enemy
                    buildings.
Squad:              The members of your squad if you've suffered no
                    casualties. The number in brackets is their rank. If a
                    party member dies, he'll be replaced by someone else in
                    the next battle.
Recruits Remaining: How many recruits you have in reserve if some die (this
                    is kind of your life counter)
Walkthrough:        A step-by-step guide to the mission/phase.

                               5. Walkthrough
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


===================================
Mission 1 - The Sensible Initiation
===================================
Password: None


Phase 1 of 1 - It's A Jungle Out There
--------------------------------------
Briefing:           With 2 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
Squad:              Jools (1), Jops (1)
Recruits Remaining: 13

Walkthrough:
The easisest level in the game, as it's the first. Go up to the north-eastern
corner of the map and kill the enemy soldier. Then proceed west and kill the
other two. You should suffer no casualties on this level, if you do, maybe
this isn't the game for you!





==================================
Mission 2 - Onward Virgin Soldiers
==================================
Password: UZHNC


Phase 1 of 2 - Bridge Over The River Pie
----------------------------------------
Briefing:           With 3 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
Squad:              Jools (2), Jops (2), Stoo (1)
Recruits Remaining: 27

Walkthrough:
Firstly, shoot the trooper swimming across to you. Go west and then south to
wipe out three more soldiers. Continue west and kill two more soldiers. Return
north, killing two soldiers to the west, and use the bridge to cross the water
(swimming is too slow, and leaves you open to attack). Shoot the soldier at 
the other side and go west. There will be three soldiers here. Go along the 
northern track to proceed east. Kill the first group of two soldiers and then
the second group of three. Mission Complete.


Phase 2 of 2 - Trash Enemy HQ
-----------------------------
Briefing:           With 3 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:                Jools (2), Jops (2), Stoo (1)
Recruits Remaining:   27

Walkthrough:
Immediately kill the two soldiers to the west. Then proceed west along the
bottom shorline. You will encounter two soldiers, kill them and follow the
shorline around the trees, killing a further two soldiers along the way.
Kill the soldier across the river and continue west. When you reach the next
bend, kill the two soldiers (to the west and south). Cross the river here and
shoot the soldier swimming towards you. Cross the river again. You should now
be on the south bank. Go west and shoot the two soldiers. Then go south from
the river. Kill the two soldiers here, and go east. Shoot two soldiers along
the way, and then five more guarding the base. Kill any soldiers that come out
of the hut and destroy it by shooting the barrels. Stand a reasonable distance
away, as the door and roof will blow off and can kill one or more of your
soldiers. Shoot the three soldiers in the north-west and Mission Complete.





===================================
Mission Three - Antarctic Adventure
===================================
Password: JHHJI


Phase 1 of 1 - Blast it's Cold
------------------------------
Briefing:           With 4 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (4), Jops (4), Stoo (3), RJ (1)
Recruits Remaining: 41

Walkthrough:
For this level, the bar has been raised quite a bit. You will have to be
much better not to be killed here. Go east, killing every soldier along the
way (You can't destroy the huts yet). Jump off the side of the cliff and go
down to the hut with the boxes outside. These boxes contain grenades which
you will need to destroy the huts. You will need to collect all of these boxes
to complete the level (or you can leave one and shoot it to blow up the hut).
Fire a grenade at the hut or blow up a single box to destroy it. Go west,
killing lots of soldiers in every direction and use the box beside the hut to
destroy it. Go back past the first hut you destroyed and up the slope. Go 
around the south of the lake to avoid enemy fire and destroy the hut with
a grenade. Shoot all the soldiers to the north and throw a grenade at the
final hut to complete the level.





===================================
Mission 4- Super Smashing Namtastic
===================================
Password: OFLJA


Phase 1 of 4 - Beachy Head
--------------------------
Briefing:           With 4 Soldiers You Must
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (5), Jops (5), Stoo (4), RJ (2)
Recruits Remaining: 56

Walkthrough:
Here you only need to destroy the huts, so don't go looking for a fight.
Go to the south-east of the map. You should only have to kill one soldier
along the way. Collect the box outside the hut to get some grenades. Kill the
soldier to the north and then blow up the hut. Go north, kill the soldiers in
the cul-de-sac if you want. Go north until you reach another hut, destroy it
with a grenade. Cross the river to the east, shooting those who come your way.
Continue east and blow up the hut with the box or a grenade. Go south along
the riverbank, and then blow up the hut for mission complete. I should now
point out that for a building to be considered destroyed the door must be
blown off. This means that if only the roof is blown off, the building is
not "destroyed".


Phase 2 of 4 - Pier Pressure
----------------------------
Briefing:           With 4 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (5), Jops (5), Stoo (4), RJ (2)
Recruits Remaining: 56

Walkthrough:
This one is pretty easy. Kill the soldiers coming across the water, and go
to the east. Then go down along the pier until you reach the very end.
Throw grenades at the hut until the door blows off, and kill whoever moves.
That's it. Finished.


Phase 3 of 4 - Village People
-----------------------------
Briefing:           With 5 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (5), Jops (5), Stoo (4), RJ (2), Ubik (2)
Recruits Remaining: 55


Walkthrough:
Go west until the junction, then south. Keep going south until you meet some
natives. You don't need to kill they natives because they wont attack you, but
if you do you'll get a cool death animation when they die. Go east until you
reach the river (watch out for the guys to the north and the quicksand). Then
after killing a few enimies cross the river to get the grenades and then go
north for more grenades. Go south along the riverbank, and destroy thr hut.
Go back the way you came (i.e. past the quicksand), and go over to the native
huts. Destroy the one on the left with the door. Then go north to kill some
soldiers, and return south to kill the final soldiers.


Phase 4 of 4 - Quicksand
------------------------
Briefing:           With 5 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (5), Jops (5), Stoo (4), RJ (2), Ubik (2)
Recruits Remaining: 55

Walkthrough:
Go north along the edge of the screen, avoiding the quicksand. After killing
the soldiers, shoot the landmine to the right of the next quicksand. Kill the
soldier and get the grenades. Then go up and around the quicksand. Watch out 
for the landmine and shoot the soldier. Go southwest and destroy the hut (P.S.
avoid/blow up the landmine). Shoot the guys throwing the grenades and then go
east and kill the guys in the sea. C'est tout!

Mission 5 - Those Vicious Vikings
=================================
Password: DNKFG


Phase 1 of 3 - The Valley Of Ice
--------------------------------
Briefing:           With 3 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (9), Jops (9), Stoo (8)
Recruits Remaining: 70

Walkthrough:
Go west along the north bank, killing all the soldiers. When you reach the 
hut, cross the water where it's narrow and destroy it. Return across to the
north bank again (where you crossed) and continue west. get the crate beside
the hut and blow up the hut. Blow up the other hut and get the rockets (the
battery looking thing). Cross the river south (the earlier the better), and
go west towards the last 2 huts. Destroy them and kill the soldiers. Go
further west and kill the soldiers with the rockets. Be careful here, as it
is easy to be killed. So move quickly and keep firing.


Phase 2 of 3 - Barmy Bazookas
-----------------------------
Briefing:           With 3 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (9), Jops (9), Stoo (8)
Recruits Remaining: 70

Walkthrough:
Go west and take out the soldier with the missile launcher and the hut. Then
go south and kill the soldiers, and east to destroy the hut. Go south across
the river to the island and across again onto the southern shore. Continue
south and destroy the hut. Take the missiles from outside the other hut and
go west. Take out the soldier, and go back a little and over the thin strip
of ice to the north. Take out a few soldiers here (one with a missile
launcher), and then go north to the top of the map. Swim across the river
to the west and kill the soldier on the hill. Continue west, kill another
soldier and also the other one on the hill. Go south where the river is very
thin and down along the peninsula killing soldiers along the way. Some extra
soldiers will come out of the hole in the ground so be careful. The next bit
it one of the most difficult bits in the game, but you'll be okay as long as
you keep moving. Go up around the trees killing everyone (especially the
missile soldier) and then take out the hut for mission complete.


Plase 3 of 3 - My Beautiful Skidoo
----------------------------------
Briefing:           With 4 Soldiers You Must
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (9), Jops (9), Stoo (8), RJ (6)
Recruits Remaining: 70

Walkthrough:
Go south and destroy the hut, next go south-west and kill the soldier. Be
sure not to hit the missiles as they are a great help for the level. Pick
them up and go south to the intersection. Go south first and take out the
soldier with the missile launcher. Return north and kill the lazy-looking
soldier. Go south and kill the soldiers - watch out for soldiers swimming
across the water, and a missile soldier on the other side of the river.
You'll probably need to use a missile to take him out. Alternatively, you
can go east and around the trees south avoiding the soldier altogether.
Take out the hut guarded by barbed wire in the south-east. If you've killed
all the soldiers on this side, get in the skidoo (the car thing), and go up
around the trees to the east. Use it to get across the water to the other
side by the jump (surrounded by gates). If you didn't kill the soldier
earlier, this will! Once across go immediately south and drive over the
soldier. Hehe! Drive over some more soldiers before getting out, and then
destroy the hut to complete the mission.

Password: EZMBE (minus Jools, I'll try to get a full-strength password)


Phase 1 of 2 - The Grand Canyon
-------------------------------
Briefing:           With 4 Soldiers You Must
                         Kill All Enemy
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (12), Jops (12), Stoo (11), RJ (7)
Recruits Remaining: 85

Walkthrough:
Go east killing soldiers (the usual routine now). Then south across the
bridge (and another soldier). Fall off the ledge (to the south) and go
west behind the depot. Kill the soldiers and destroy the hut. Go back
along to the east (just south of the ledge) all the way to the edge of the
screen. Next, go south and destroy the hut by shooting the boxes, and kill
the soldiers while you're at it. Now, go west along the bottom of the screen
and kill all the soldiers here. Go north and kill the soldiers at the compound
(I called it a depot earlier, same difference).


Phase 2 of 2 - Trigger Happy
----------------------------
Briefing:           With 4 Soldiers You Must
                     Destroy Enemy Buildings
Squad:              Jools (12), Jops (12), Stoo (11), RJ (7)
Recruits Remaining: 85

Walkthrough:
Go west and destroy the hut. Keep going west and destroy the south of the two
native houses (remember enemy huts must have doors!). Then go east into the
fenced section and destroy the north house. Go south then and east, and shoot
the box to destroy the final hut. Pretty simple, really.
