"I have to free Insaniac!" - The opening speech from Archer when starting the level

Gorgon is the homeworld of the Gorgonites and is the first level in the one player mode of Small Soldiers, the video game based on the film. It is based in a temple-like surrounding and features several instances of Insaniac held by a machine created by the Commando Elite that Archer must destroy to free him each time, both to unlock each spirit wells blocked by a fence and to help him defeat the Commando Elite. In the story line, Gorgon is being invaded by the Commando Elite.



Small Soldiers (PS1) Walkthrough Level 1 Gorgon


When starting the level, the mission screen shows the following missions:

  • "The Commando Elite have invaded Gorgon!"
  • "Rescue your captured Gorgonites!"
  • "The astral fires will take you higher."
  • "Use the spirit wells to traverse this realm."
  • "Repel Kip Killigan and Bipod at any cost!"

Level Features

Archer must go through the level, destroying the Commando Elite and freeing Insaniac several times by destroying the machines, which will occasionally fire two green bullets at Archer. Each Insaniac will follow Archer around until entering a spirit well, destroying the Commando Elite he comes across. He cannot be killed by Archer and the Commando Elite. At the end of the level is a green Gorgonite Chanter token which must be taken to the green chapel to unlock the green Gorgonite Chanter which will return a green key to unlock the green door leading to the next level.


Total: 3

  • In the second area, use the astral fire to jump, but instead face the opposite way to get the spirit on a ledge.
  • In the second area after the three Bipods, go to the second hole to the left through a spirit well to get a spirit. It is seen after the bridge in the second area.
  • In the third area with the lava, go to the right platform and the secret area is behind you, containing a talisman.


  • In the film, Gorgon is ultimately not seen, vaguely represented as a place of natural beauty due to know definitive depiction of the world in the film outside of what the Gorgonites interpret as possibly being Gorgon. The level in the game is the first actual look into the actual location within the universe of the Gorgonites. However, the level itself is not so much Gorgon in its entirety but, one of the many nameless locations set in Gorgon.
  • It is also the only location mentioned in the film; other levels are game-only based.
  • It is the only level to contain only one Gorgonite Chanter: the green Gorgonite Chanter.
  • This is the only level to contain non-spawning Gorgonites, and the only level with Insaniac existing without having to be summoned by Archer.
  • In this level, Insaniac is immortal to both Archer and the Commando Elite.
