Military Madness: Neo Nectaris iPhone Walkthrough/Guide/FAQ

I've written another Walkthrough/Guide/FAQ, this time for Military Madness: Neo Nectaris for iPhone, also known as Neo Nectaris released in 1994 for the PC-Engine. There's a bit of a story behind why I wrote this one.

I wasn't planning on writing one, but then I noticed that I missed a contest Hudsonsoft had put up, where they would publish an authors guide for Military Madness: Neo Nectaris on their official web site. This contest was unfortunately barely publicized at all. The person who won did not do a very good job on their guide, but I won't go into details. It's not about money or free iPods to me, only the fact that such a poorly written guide is up on the official site when the game deserves better. So I set forth to show 'em how it's done.

Take a look at the guide here. And yes, there are lots of screenshots. Sometimes there's not a lot to write because Neo Nectaris is generally intermediate level difficulty, not something that requires extremely in depth strategies like Advance Wars Advance Campaign or a complex tactical wargame.

UPDATE: Guide is now finished.  You can also view the plain text version here.
