Cannon Challenge - Be a Kid Again


If you had a cannon, what would you do? So would I. Fortunately, this cannon is tiny, digital and comes as an iPhone application. Cannon Challenge is a hand held battlefield where you can destroy as many targets as you would in real life — all of them.

Just aim the barrel by tilting it up or down on the right side of the screen, set your velocity by sliding the adjustment knob up or down on the right side of the screen, and press the huge 'fire' button in the bottom center. Watch your targets explode with old school graphics and a hefty demolition sound affect that is very satisfying to the ear.

Repeat, repeat and feel warm inside. Everyone likes to blow things up. Cannon Challenge just gives you the opportunity to do so without harming anyone or anything. If you remember this game from oh, twenty years ago, you'll surely agree it's just as much fun now as it was when you were 5.

Cannon Challenge is backed by the Discovery Channel, a company who provides us countless of hours of interesting information via television.

This mini-jewel of an app is a huge success in the iPhone gaming world. And it is really fun — for the first hour of play. Then, you realize you're squinting at the tiny objects as if you could see better if you just leaned in. Good luck to all your eyes and remember to blink every once in a while.

There is no way to die in this game but you only have 15 bullets in your tiny shooter so my advice to you is "expel wisely." And blast away!
