A Cannoneer's Curse

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Made for LOWREZJAM 2021

A game in which you fire whatever you can out of a cannon to defeat enemies, whether that's yourself, or enemies bodies.

Destroy the three obelisks to summon the final boss and end the curse!


  • Arrow keys or WASD to move
  • X/Shift to pick up enemies' bodies, load them (or yourself) onto the cannon, or hop on the cannon when it's loaded.
  • Z/Space to fire the cannon when you're on (or in) it 
  • Any key to advance dialogue

Sound effects (CC0) are mostly by rubberduck on opengameart.org

Music (CC0) is by SubspaceAudio on opengameart.org, here.

All art/code by me. @Thoof4 on Twitter, @thoof_dev on Instagram

waho that's hard :
the screen is too small, can't see the enemies before it's too late,
the player is totally defensless, reloading is sooo long, and there is no point in filling the cannon with corpses, because it makes me vulnerable... when being in the cannon makes me invincible.

good game thats all i can think of

The game is an example of pixel art done correctly. I mastered the controls after a few tries. The mechanics of this game are top notch, once you figure them out. It is not only fun to play, but also has a decent repayable factor.


really good mechanics, actually kind of original, and fun, kinda dificult but still rlly good:)
