Advance Wars: Dual Strike is the latest in Nintendo and Intelligent Systems' series of turn-based strategy games. As in the previous titles, you'll be tasked with defending the world from the evil Black Hole army that's sucking the energy from Omega Land. Under the command of new CO's, including the spunky Rachel and thoroughly loathsome Jake, the Allied Nations must rise up and, as Jake would say, totally pwn the Black Hole armies before they run amok over the continent. Werd, son.
Anyway, Advance Wars: DS is arguably the most feature-filled of any of the Advance Wars games thus far. In addition to the dual-screen interface, which lets you move units with the stylus and examine stats and information while retaining the customary view of the battlefield, there's also numerous scenario-style battles, in which you can either challenge yourself to win as efficiently as possible, win without spending more than a certain amount of cash, win in a certain amount of time, or so on. For the purposes of not going crazy trying to include every single thing in this guide, though, we're going to focus on describing the various CO's that are available to you, give you some general tips to work with, and guide you through the normal campaign mode. Enjoy! If you're looking for more info on a specific part of the game, please check out the Advance Wars: Dual Strike page on Gamefaqs.com.
