Advance Wars: Dual Strike Guides and Walkthroughs
Advance Wars: Dual Strike is a turn-based tactics video game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS handheld game console. It's the third installment in the Advance Wars series and was released in 2005 for Japan on June 23, in North America on August 22, in Europe on September 30, and in Australia on March 22, 2006. The game is preceded by Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising and Advance Wars and succeeded by Advance Wars: Days of Ruin.
The player's main goal in Dual Strike is to beat the enemy army with their own army. Except in some campaign missions with special objectives, there are two ways to beat an opponent: destroy all of the enemy's units or capture their headquarters. The battle system is turn-based tactics. Two to four armies, each led by one or two commanding officers, take turns building and commanding units on grid-based maps. Every turn, units, which consist of ground, sea, and air units, can move across the different types of terrain and attack enemy units or perform other actions, such as submerging a submarine or resupplying friendly units.
