Cheats & Tips – Advance Wars (GBA)


Unlock Advance Campaign

First buy the ‘Advance Campaign’ under Battle Maps which becomes available after completing the Campaign Mode. After you have bought it start a new Campaign while holding down the Select button. The words ‘Advance Campaign’ should appear in the upper left hand corner. This mode will make enemy AI tougher and some units stronger. Your opponent will also have more units while you will have less, but you will earn more cash for progressing.

Special Intel Tutorial

When you have finished the Field Training missions you will unlock a short tutorial called ‘Special Intel’ which gives you extra gameplay tips. It can be found at any time by going back into Field Training.
