Each commander has his/her unique special power. Better save your special power for the most urgent time. And don't forget to watch enemies side, whether they want to crush you using their special power.

Start by conquesing cities around you, if you have collected enough golds from the cities then you can start build barracks, airport, port etc. And finally produce your own troops to raise your firepower and raid enemy headquarter base!

Besides playing solo mode, there are also story mode and link cable mode to play againts your friend.

In the beginning of story mode I thought that Advance War is an easy game, but as we progress further the missions become more and more difficult. I even need to retry plenty of times to finish the story mode.
