Cannon Ball

by

Asteroids spawn from the right and we have to detroy them using a Cannon with 2D physics. We can also adquire power ups that will grant us more fire power during some time.   To complete a level you have to destroy all the asteroids that will be spawning during 1 minute. If all asteroids are destroyed the level is cleared! But if one single asteroid reaches the left side of the screen the level is lost and will have to play it again!   Controls:    Use the mouse to aim and hold left button to charge the cannon.  Release the button to shoot the bullet!  Also you can use the ENTER key to pause the game.

Hey DUKEBOT;

Nice game mate. I only played through the first level but it was fun once I got the hang of it.

I played it in the browser and my laptops aspect ratio hid the cannon from me in the beginning. At first I could hear the shot but not see any as I spammed shoot. A little confusing but I figured it out :)

Also I'm not sure if the frame rate is a result of a design choice, technical limitation or the browser player, but it felt like about 20 FPS. Not a deal breaker by any means, but these days I notice it immediately.

Anyway good work and I'm looking forward to seeing updates to Cannon Ball :)

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

Right now as this is an early prototype, I only allowed to play in 1280x720 at windowed mode. I will study it and see how can I adapt this to fit all possible screen sizes, so you don't have the problem when playing on laptop screen.

The game is supposed to run at 60 FPS, and the downloadable version for windows plays smooth. But it's true that the web version feels like running at a lower framerate. I will have to see why this happens.

Thanks again for your words. I will keep improving the game and making updates to it. Any feedback on gameplay will be wellcome as I want to make a fun game that people can enjoy and have fun while playing it.
