I started making this game for Pico Day this year. Problem was I only had a couple of hours until the deadline and I simply didn't make it. I was hoping to finish it up a day or so later, but I ended up not touching it for almost three months. Anyway, better late than never I suppose so here you go :)

Huge thanks goes out to JohnnyUtah for giving me permission to use his graphics and audio!

Oh, and please enjoy it for what it is. This never was meant to be a perfect game ;)

Edit: Apparently it was possible to cheat by right clicking somehow. I was not able to reproduce it, but I made right clicking instakill you so don't try no funny business ;)

** Please recommend for Tankmen collection, ty

Good game, but badly programmed.

don't get me wrong, there's no glitches or anything but I gave it a very low score because the game is only set at 3 lives and 9 cannonballs, this really is a bad idea especially since how long you have to wait to get to 42195m. The limit for lives/ammo combined with how long have to play the game for made me gave it a really low score. That and he game is just a little too simple. It's an alright game, but don't set the lives and ammo at something so low.

These opinions should be directed towards the game design, not programming ;)

okay

The art is not original, because you ripped it off of Tankmen. The gameplay is annoying, because the perspective sucks, wich makes aiming very hard. And the idea isn't new or fun. sorry, 2/5 4/10

"Balloon Boy 2: The Taedium"

It's probably a lot more fun to watch the chase scene than to actually play it, because Tankmen 2: The Chase is extraordinarily tedious, that is, if you're trying
to get to the 42195 point, and the Balloon Boy game isn't nearly as bad in comparison. This game would make for a great loading screen distraction if you're torrenting the entire Law and Order TV series.

No Pause Button?

Games that want to test your endurance should have the basic courtesy of a pause button. The pause button is a simple feature to add.
You spent time to develop an "insta-kill" for right-clicking on the game, but you won't put time in for a pause button? Your priorities are backwards.

While I could argue what's most important (the instakill also only was 3-4 lines) you're definitely not wrong when you say a pause feature is needed. So I added it (space) :)
