1.UPDATE HISTORY
---------

Version 1.0---12/17/99---Created this FAQ type thing.

---------
2.INTRODUCTION 
---------

Armada is a great shooter/rpg from Metro3D. This walkthrough
is mostly made from information collected from throughout the
internet. If you have any more questions that this FAQ type 
thing doesn't answer, feel free to contact me 
(mattmartin13@hotmail.com).

3.BASICS 
---------

-The controls are as follows:
 Analog Thumb Pad: Change ship direction
 Directional Button: Press UP or down to ascend or descend 
from planets you orbit
 A Button: Fire Main Weapon
 B Button: Special Power Pod Attack
 X Button: Scanner
 Y Button: Activate Shield
 Left Trigger: Warp Engine
 Right Trigger: Thrust
 Start Button: Pause or Exit from menu
 
-Only the top 4 items in your inventory are equipped. 

-You are awarded a new ship every fourth level up to level
44. Even after the last bulk upgrade your stats (I wish I
could see them) still go up when you gain a level.

-The last mission is #31. Even after you beat it though
you can still play forever, but their is no ending.

-There is no way to contact the Armada, you can only frag
them.

-The "special" weapons, such as the Phoenix Missile, are
fired randomly by your ship.

-The large green dots on your radar are a chance to do a 
escort mission. Use your Scanner to talk to the large ship.
By doing this you can earn up to 1000 credits.

-Small green dots on your radar are ships that will become
your wingman when you scan them.  

-The red dots are the Armada. The large ones are more harder
to kill, but give more experience.  White dots are your 
mission goals.

5.TIPS
---------

-The best places to get money and experience and the differant 
planets. These ships are harder to kill (because of their 
higher levels), but the money and experience are worth it.

-Hold down the Scanner when leaving a planet. This way you pick
up anything you forgot to in the heat of battle.

-The Eldred are possibly the best for single player because of
their experience boost, critical hit, and their ability to warp 
without using energy.

-The Vorgon are possibly the best for multi-player because their 
homing shots can steal the most kills and also help pick off the
 enemies that dodge.

---------
6.SECRETS
---------

-Sorry, no cheats.

-After level 16 you can buy a "super" Ultratech, called Shiva, 
at the Allied Starbase for 50,000 credits. This item gives you 
infinite energy and more shots fired.

-After level 32 you can but another "super" Ultratech, called 
Disrupter, at the Secret Base for 95,000 credits. This item 
kills Armada ships in one hit (I think).

-After level 44 (the last ship upgrade) you get unlimited 
power pods.
