DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.

First release in a trilogy of "Sarge" games in the Army Men series which were ported excessively. Frustrating for its poor collision, slow-as-molasses controls and poorly-functioning radar, and its tendency to kill you near the end of very long levels without extra lives or a way to continue.

Here's an overview of what these values refer to:

Value Reference
548 X Position
76 Z Position
745 Y Position
157 Facing Direction (out of 360°)
0 ???
544 X Position (Alternate 1)
76 Z Position (Alternate 1)
749 Y Position (Alternate 1)
552 X Position (Alternate 2)
96 Z Position (Alternate 2)
741 Y Position (Alternate 2)

The alternate X/Y/Z positions track certain parts of the player's body, whereas the main set refers to the entire body.

Disabled Passwords

Present in the ROM are five additional passwords that are dummied out thanks to an inability to enter lowercase characters. To re-enable these, remove the three lowercase Zs. Interestingly, the "All Levels" cheat is displayed after finishing the final level, complete with the three Zs at the beginning. This seems to indicate that either this cheat was intended to be revealed when you beat the game, or that the devs were so bad at coding they didn't bother to bugfix the password list for the last level. The All Levels cheat seems incomplete, and doesn't appear to do anything but take you to the final level. The Continues cheat also seems unfinished and doesn't appear to do anything; you certainly don't resurrect or get another chance when dying or failing in Campaign missions. The "Living Large" cheat has (even worse) serious collision issues and you can actually get completely stuck climbing up ledges.

Alternately, you can apply the following GameShark code to re-enable all of the above cheats. Omit the lower case z's when inputting them.
