CANNON FODDER - Walkthrough/FAQ Super NES Version 0.5 Authored by: GadesXion aka Shouvik :) firstname.lastname@example.org (Put "Cannon Fodder" in the subject line) AIM: gadesxion --Z101------------------------- Table Of Contents (Use Ctrl+F) ------------------------------- Z101 - Table Of Contents Z102 - Intro Z103 - Version History Z104 - Game Basics Z105 - Passwords Z106 - Walkthrough Z107 - FAQ Z108 - Legal Stuff and Acknowlegements --Z102 Intro ----- Cannon Fodder is a classic underrated addictive game for the Super NES which i discovered had been neglected on the FAQ boards and thus decided to write this FAQ for. Its a fun little game where you control a group of soldiers and elimintate any enemies in the given level. --Z103--------- Version History --------------- 0.5 - My first FAQ! Game basics section is complete. Walkthrough and passwords complete through Mission 5! --Z104----- Game Basics ----------- The Intro Screen : First the "score" at the top is the number of kills home = your kills away = your casualties (Graves will form on the hillside as your caualties grow) on the left column, the Heroes are ones that have been killed, and the Squad are the people that are alive.The following number is their individual kills By pressing select at the first screen the options menu will pop up: Load Game : This option is actually a password entry screen; passowords for thecurrent level can be found by selecting Save Game Save Game : This option gives the password for the current level Key Define : The controls for Cannon Fodder can be assigned with this option. My recomended controls are as follows: Move - B Shoot - Y Map - X Weapon - A Stereo : Stereo is set to off by default, change it if you wish Pressing start will begin the mission - Gameplay Basics Basically you move a target around the battlefield, pressing move will command your soldiers to move to the target, pressing fire will command then to fire at the target very simple-- but it gets complicated as strategy is needed in the later missions. By pausing you can move soldiers individually and you must usethe map to help you plan out your attacks. If you pause and select the names of soldiers and then the snake thingy it will separate your troops into groups so you can command them individually, dont worry though because troops that are left alone WILL defend themselves, although not very effectively. (Use R and L to switch between soldiers/ groups) --Z105--- Passwords --------- Mission 1 - NBPBZ Mission 2 - BCBCY Mission 3 - SCSDX Mission 4 - CDBGW Mission 5 - TDSHT - --Z106----- Walkthrough ----------- :: Note the number of Recriuts remaining is only if you travel through the game with 0 casualties:: Mission 1: The Sensible Initiation --------- Phase 1/1: Its A Jungle Out There Briefing : With 2 soldiers you must kill all enemy 13 Recriuts Remaining 3 Enemy Soldiers Very easy, if you lose this mission you should not even bother with the rest of the gamejust move your soldiers into range of the enemy and openly fire on them, kill all 3 of them and youre done! Mission 2: Onward Virgin Soldiers --------- Phase 1/2: Bridge Over the River Pie (Haha like the movie get it?) Briefing : With 3 soldiers you must kill all enemy 27 Recriuts Remaining 17 Enemy Soldiers This level is MUCH harder and is what the rest of the game will be like. You now have 17 enemies as opposed to 3. I still recommend you keep all of your soldiers in just 1 group. First off there will be an enemy swimming towards you from the north, kill him immedietly. Next 3 enemies to the south stay by the trees and lure them 1 at a time and pick them off for easy kills. Now head west along the south border, 2 soldiers will come rushing in, pick them off (your groups mass firing should get it done very easily). Head north when you hit the west border and pick off the 2 soldiers standing by the river. Now go to the bridge (use the map if youre lost) and pick off the one guard across the bridge. Go west and lure the guards by firing bullets near them until they come into your range, and then pick them off. As always use the trees for cover. Go around the trees and head east slowly, you will be approached by 2 soldiers at the clearing, pick em off. (see a pattern here?) Head east and kill the last 3 soldiers. You win! watch your soldiers jump around in victory :) Phase 2/2: Trash Enemy HQ Briefing : With 3 soldiers you must -kill all enemy -destroy enemy buildings 27 Recriuts Remaining 22+ Enemy Soldiers (Soldiers will continue coming out of the building if you do not destroy it) 1 Enemy building I think by now you get the idea of the game, so i can condense my strategy. At the very start 2 soldiers come in from the west, kill them and cross the river. There are 2 more soldiers by the trees You know what to do. When you reach the end of the peninsula, 2 soldiers to the west across the river and one incoming from the south. As a reminder stick to the land so your soldiers wont be slowed. Follow the river east along the north shore. One soldier will come from the east and one more is across the river at the end of the south peninsula. Go south and follow the river west killing the 3 soldiers along the way. Go south and kill the 2 soldiers waiting in the corner. Go east and kill the 9 soldiers along the way until you see a building. Kill the 2 soldiers north of the building and any that come out of the building. There is a little brown crate next to the building- pick it up to recieve grenades. To use a grenade target the barrels around the building HOLD down fire and then press move, when you throw a grenade at the barrels they will explode and destroy the building. ::Note keep your soldiers a safe distance from the buildings when destroying them, flying debree can kill your soldiers:: Mission Complete!

You will see a building with crates around it. DO NOT shoot the crates! kill all surrounding enemies and go and pick up the crates and destroy the building. Go back and destroy the 2 buildings you passed along the way with your grenades. Come back and go west, there are ALOT of enemies along the way make sure not to slip up or you may lose one of your soldiers very easily. when you see the 4th building you can throw grenades at it or just shoot the crate.
