Cannon Basketball 2

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The game combines classic cannon play with competetive puzzles to give you the challenge you've never faced thus far. You will have to find unlocking mechanism for clearing your way to the basket first before you can put a ball into it. On some stages, you will have to use a teleporter to reach the basket. The game becomes more addictive as you climb up the level ladder and open new puzzles and new ways of reaching the basket.

I enjoyed this a lot, I thought the level design was particularly good for a cannon game and avoided the "find the exact pixel-perfect spot to click on" trap that these games can often fall into.

there's a glitch on level 17 and i cannot pass the level unless its fixed. balls keep getting stuck in the teleporter. this is making me so sad, so very, very sad.

The concept sounds great. Looking at some of the puzzles, you certainly could have made them more difficult, some of the higher level puzzles still seemed a little simple. It became less about getting it on the first try and more about wasting an entire attempt to see the good shots to make the next attempt perfect. That is the issue with almost all of these types games though, so I can't really be too hard on you about that..

Also, I never ran into one, but perhaps a ball limit? I know the score system is kind of a "soft limit" for shots, but making it more of a requirement to think about your shots is nice. (Disregard this, if there is an actual ball limit. Though writing this now.. I realize I should just go check myself....OK I did.. fired ~100 shots.. no apparent limit) While I would count that against you, I do like that you made sure there is collision with your other shots, does mean if one is bored they can think of new ways to make the shots.. so that is where no ball limit is a plus. I know it's impossible to cater to everyone's needs or wants, so safer to go with the fun options.

Overall, in the midst of my debate with myself... it was a decent-good game, managing to be simple with some complexity. I would urge for it to be more difficult.. but that's just my preference, and I am but 1 amongst billions.

Good job.
