Polar Bear Cannon

Author Comments

Hello Newgrounds, I have been a member of newgrounds for years but all I have ever done is watch things and blam them till I can't blam no more but It's my turn now. I'm only 15 (I'm going for some sympathy here) and I am not an expert at flash but I thought that I would make a fun and simple game to start off with.

Go play kitty cannon

It plays like a cheap knock off of Kitty cannon, except not as fun. You could include some different lvls or things to shoot, but again, it's like you just took someone else idea and are selling it at wal-mart half off.

good good....

it is an good idea, it is really worked out ok but... as everyone told you the improvements already i cant think about anything but an cannon improvement system. and add some point things you have to collect

that is: at the end of the shot you multiply metres by points scored in that round for example a better cannon with higher firepower or a better polar bear or something else.

i hoped it helped?

Hypnogiraffe responds:

yes thank you I probably will make an improved/new version of this with everything people have suggested.

good concept! games like these are nice

Definitely has potential.
Add some sick catchy music, a background as mentioned before, other obstacles to be hit as well.
More things to propel the polar bear or speed it up. Maybe make the spikes a tiny bit smaller.
Great game though, the mood is right, nice bright areas.
Sound effects for every time the bear hits the ground and a sound effect for each individual thing hit, like the spikes for example.
All these are probly things you've already considered. But..
Great, nice work, keep working on it. :) haha

Hypnogiraffe responds:

That's some pretty good advice and seeing as how it seems people didn't totally hate it I will update the game with added sound and backgrounds and improve it in general

very good...

I found this game amusing for how simple it looked. Good job, if there is a second one, a little more detail would be nice. I agree with the guy below, somthing in the background wouldn't hurt.

Hypnogiraffe responds:

Thanks for the positive review and I will (if I go back and improve it) add backgrounds to it. This wasn't intended to be the best game in the world, it was a game I thought would be quite fun and a good way to learn about making flash games.


In my opinion, the signs were too close together, and the objects were too far apart.
You should have had something (like an iceberg) in the background.

Hypnogiraffe responds:

I agree with what you say, this is basically my first version of the game. I was beginning to get a bit fed up of making it but if I go back to it I will definetely make sure I go back and add some backgrounds.
