Thorough stat tracking.
Now with Global Leaderboards!
In the Cannon you must control a super-cannon filled to the brim with fireballs, ice shards, electricity and vines to stop an upcoming onslaught. Ninjas, pirates, robots, monkeys, zombies and aliens all want to take you down and its all down to you to beat them back.
But behind this cliched overcoat is a deeply strategic game. Each weapon has different effects on each enemy, so you need to balance your weapons against each other so you don't run out of energy at a crucial moment.
The game includes three quickplay modes and a fifteen level campaign mode. You can play the game your own way, with four difficulty options, unlockable backgrounds and remappable controls. Indiecity extras means that the game has 50 Achievements and global leaderboards, so you can hone your skills and compete to be the ultimate cannon-meister.
Reviews from the XBLIG version of the game:
Indie Game Chick, previously in the top 10 of the overall leaderboard: "Overall, I really liked The Cannon a lot. It’s got a wonderful combination of strategic action mixed with some really funny British humor"
XboxHornet, [8/10]:"If this game was given a face lift with better art, different stages with settings in them and more music, I could see this on Xbox Arcade."
DealSpwn, Second in indie picks for the week: "The Cannon delivers fun and firepower in equal measure. If blowing up hordes of ninjas and pirates with a massive gun turret doesn't sound like your cup of tea, I'd recommend seeking immediate medical attention."
While The Cannon on XBLIG doesn't have proper achievements or leaderboards, it does have local multiplayer, both co-operative and competitive, so if that sounds like your cup of tea, then go check it out! It's also only 80 points! ($1)
