Army Men Advance was a Game Boy Advance launch title released by the now-defunct 3DO game company. It is a 2D game in their moderately successful Army Men franchise. Much like Army Men: Sarge's Heroes, the story has General Plastro and his army of tan figurines have decided to take over the world and it is up to Sarge and reporter Vikki G. to thwart the conquest. Throughout the game you will be required to rescue team members, infiltrate tan bases, escape from a jail, investigate an extra terrestrial presence, and retrieve communications equipment. You can choose to play as either Sarge or Vikki, but the quests for each are identical and once a character has been chosen it is impossible to switch to the other unless you want to start again from the first mission.
The game was met with mixed reviews, with a MetaCritic score of 57 out of 100. TotalGames.net gave it a very positive review, however, awarding it an 86 and said "This is without a doubt a really fun little game." IGN gave a 7.0 out of 10 and said "There's definitely room for improvement for these little guys' Advance portable adventure, but it's a good first shot that can be expanded upon in the GBA's lifetime"
