Sonic Boom Cannon

Author Comments

Here is my two week mini game project. This hedgehog-powered cannon can fire your favorite sonic character down courses to collect rings, chaos emeralds, and distance for rings.
~UPDATE - 26/05/05~
I fixed some of the more demanding glitches such as the 0-1 degree miss-fire and the "bellow ground" glitch many of you people said you got. In truth, the character was up in the air and was not coming down for a while. what ever the case, theres code to prevent it now.
-I added two more songs (doubling the file size) by popular demand.
-A mute button is now an option.
-The 'submit' button works at 50% now. the scores / names are stored on my site but they are not sorted in any way.

Please people, dont compare this game to the kitten cannon or call it a rip of it. The kitten cannon was just a rip of an old flash game called pingu where you whacked a penguin with a bat down a mine field.

Objectives :
1) Unlock all the characters by collecting enough rings.
2) Gather all 7 chaos emeralds, if you cant do it on the field, you may buy them for 200 rings each.
3) beat the secret ending.

Controls :
left / right to lower and raise the power.
Up / Down to tilt the cannon.
Space to fire. simple.

Flash stats :
FPS 25
file size 760kb~
estimated game play : 30 minutes or less.
I'm still working on the submit scores button so bare with me.
The save button works great.

Well I'm off to go work on the ST.T6. see everyone soon. PS I don’t need your criticism.

Love it, it's an amazing pastime had by all!

Played this game back in the day and thought it was fun then. Just beat it again now and still enjoyed it. This game is very similar to all of those other cannon games but it's Sonic so not much to say. Takes about 10 minuets to beat.

This is the game that got me to love "What I'm Made Of" because I don't think I had beaten Sonic Heroes yet so it's important to me I guess.

Quick and fun with a great taste in music. Only gripe would be that there's nothing available to be collected when your character is off screen, but I think some of the rings being gained based on distance mostly remedy that

ya know..i remember this game being so quick and fun but i got to play it again for a while years later and its just clunky and sluggish seems like my memories may be clouded by nostalgia wish i could love this game again but im just not feeling it

I played this game all the time on my dads old computer its a 10/10 "it has a little something for everyone"
