Levels[]

Phalo Theme


HUZZAH!
This tale has been told! It's done!


The game opens to a cutscene. A disgraced CoveredAnt commander is stripped of his rank for failing to stop the penguins from destroying the first Phalo System. He is branded as a Cake Addict and is forced to wear the Medal of Phailure to prove he has failed epically.


Meanwhile, on the defense station Egypt orbiting the Earth, the penguin Sparkan 117, also known as the Master Chef, attends an awards ceremony where he is commended for destroying the first Phalo System. The award ceremony is interrupted when Currantana, an artificial intelligence that protects the Egypt, reports that 15 CoveredAnt ships have just slipped out of Hyperspace and have surrounded Earth.

Level One: Egypt Station[]

MASTER CHEF:Permission to give the CoveredAnt back their explosive cake?
CAPTAIN JOSEPH:Permission granted.

-The Master Chef and Captain Joseph

The Master Chef, along with UCA armed forces, try to stop the CoveredAnt boarders. Other Penguin ships are destroyed. The Master Chef battles his way to an explosive cake the CoveredAnt have placed on the ship, and disables it with the help of Currantana, who is inside his armor. He drags the cake bomb to the airlock and jumps out, still hanging on. The Master Chef enables the bomb and throws it into the CoveredAnt troop ship. The ship is covered in cake and crash lands on Earth in Kenya. The Master Chef spacewalks to another Penguin ship and lands on it. The ship departs for Kenya.

Level Two: The CovredAnt's Been Deported to KENYA![]

Exhausted, the Master Chef blacks out. When he wakes up, he is on firm ground. He runs into the town square and knocks out all the CoveredAnt with the help of his Chefs. They run through these passages until they meet up with the UCA. The Master Chef then then proceeds to the beaches and knock out and capture all the CoveredAnts. He then grabs a vehicle and zooms through an underground highway that's teeming with CoveredAnt and meets up with the second UCA group.


Level Three: Metroville[]

CHEF CAPTAIN: I asked for reinforcements, but I never thought I'd get you....

--A Chef Captain and the Master Chef.


The Master Chef takes control of a giant Lobster Tank to get the CoveredAnt off a long bridge. At the end of the bridge, he grabs a smaller vehicle and zooms off into some tunnels. He eventually ends up in the center of the city.


A giant, electronic ant is walking through the city, demolishing everything in it's path. The Master Chef grabs a Sushi launcher and jumps onto the giant ant as it passes by him. He stops the ant. and blows it up. The Master Chef calmly walks down the ramp of the exploding ant and is picked up by Army Grapeson and Commander Unlocks in a Skua drop ship.

Level Four: The Arbeater[]

  • Starting Weapon: Energy Fork
  • Secondary Weapon: Cordial Rifle

The disgraced CoveredAnt commander is about to be condemned to a life of washing dishes when the High Popcorn of Truth decides to give the commander a chance to regain his status. The commander takes up the mantle of the Arbeater, an elite CoveredAnt kidnapper. The Arbeater's first mission is to capture the Cake Addict Leader, who is hiding in a salt mine.

The Arbeater manages to infiltrate the salt mines after an epic mid air battle with some Cake Addict Bananas, with the help of Grapes, Edibles, and Artas Vummay.

Level Five: Pavlova[]

The Arbeater battles his way through Cake Addict soldiers and finds the Cake Addict Leader, who brings in the artificial intelligence monitor of the fifth Phalo System, 545 Yummy Crouton. Crouton is about to explain the true purpose of the Phalo System, but is silenced by CreamofTartar, the leader of the Broots. In all the confusion, the Cake Addict Leader falls down an energy shaft.

Level Six: Beta Phalo[]

The Master Chef and the rest of the UCA forces from Egypt Station jump through hyperspace and arrive at another Phalo System, named "Beta Phalo" or "Installation 05". The Master Chef jumps through the atmosphere and lands on the Phalo, with some CDFTs. He and Currantana fight their way through ruins until they reach a massive temple where the Popcorn of Regret is hiding.


Level Seven: Big Mistake[]

Currantana explains to the Master Chef that the Popcorn of Regret plans to activate the Phalo System, which will destroy all life in the universe. Commander Unlocks, speaking through a signal to the Master Chef, explains that to activate the Phalo, the Popcorn will need a special key called the Ingredient. Commander Unlocks says she'll find the Ingredient while the Master Chef captures the Popcorn of Regret. Gameplay starts.


The Master Chef fights his way through various CoveredAnt forces and arrives at a docking station for a giant bowl of pumpkin soup that floats in the water separating him from another temple. Various walkways extend across the soup. He and some other chefs start the soup bowl up by pouring in chives and other spices.


As the soup bowl crosses the lake, another soup bowl coming in the opposite direction filled with aliens approaches. Various aliens board the ship, only to be knocked into the soup by the Master Chef. They reach a platform on which an underwater elevator is located. Using the underwater elevator, the Master Chef and his soldiers arrive in an underwater structure that is being slowly flooded. Fighting their way through hordes of CoveredAnts, the Chef and the rest take another elevator to the surface.

Millions upon millions of CoveredAnt ships suddenly arrive out of Hyperspace, and the Master Chef arrives in the throne room. He fights off Regret's guards, then challenges Regret to a cooking contest. If the Popcorn wins, Regret can rule the earth, if the Master Chef wins, Regret must be taken into custody. The prophet accepts.

There is a time limit and three recipes to choose from: CoveredAnt Cake, Apple Strudel or Pineapple Fritters. The Popcorn makes soup. If the Chef does the recipe correctly, Regret gives up. Also, Edibe PWNSOME Guards will try to stop you by attacking you with Energy Forks and Cordial Rifles, so you also need to fight them. If the Chef loses, you will lose the game and have to start again. The Master Chef leaves Regret in the hands of two Chefs, and they depart on a Skua ship. The Master Chef runs out of the temple, but trips and falls into a deep chasm.

Level Eight: Seared Ingredient[]

The Arbeater and Artas Vummay are walking as Broots are taking some Edible's PWSOME Guards armour. Artas Vummay talks to the Popcorn of Truth and the Popcorn of Mercy. The Popcorn of Truth explains that with the capture of a Popcorn, the Edibles had to be fired, and the Broots were given the positions of guarding the Popcorn, leading the armies etc. The Popcorns then show The Arbeater and Artas Vummay a frozen 545 Yummy Crouton. The Popcorns were asking the Oogacon (aka 545 Yummy Crouton) how to unlock the Phalo ring, and the Oogacon told the Popcorns that they needed a Seared Ingredient. The Popcorns send The Arbeater, Artas Vummay and some Edibles, CreamofTartar, and his Broots to get the Seared Ingredient.

Sergeant Army Grapeson catches the strand of spaghetti, and helps Commander Unlocks to come up. They hear a noise, then the invisible Arbeater knocks Grapeson out and disarms Unlocks. CreamofTartar arrives and captures Unlocks and Grapeson, but pushes the Arbeater down the chasm after the Arbeater discovers that the Phalo Ring is actually meant for stopping the F00d.

Level Ten: Cheesehead[]

The Master Chef wakes up and finds himself in the clutches of a giant F00d with spaghetti-like tentacles. The Arbeater has also been captured, and he and the Master Chef meet. The giant F00d introduces himself as Cheesehead, ruler of the F00d. Also, they meet the monitor of Beta Phalo, 3512 Passionfruit Cheesecake, who pleads to the Arbeater and Master Chef to stop the activation of the Phalo Rings. Cheesehead tells them he also wants the activation to be averted to ensure survival of the F00d. The Master Chef and the Arbeater are teleported to different locations.

The objective of the level is to escape the F00d who are taking over Low Truth and follow the Popcorn of Truth, who is attempting to launch a huge ship in the middle of the city.
