MORE Cannon Fodder


Why Cannon Fodder?

Did you already played "Command & Conquer", "Commandos", "Star Craft" or "Warcraft"? It will be strange if you answer "No". Those strategy games are/was in the glory! Commanding troops in missions is very good! As "Wolfenstein" was for "Doom", what was for those games? Well, "Cannon Fodder" is the oldest game that has the "essence" of the those games. I'm not 100% sure about it but if it wasn't the first, was the second! If someone know any game, tell me. I would like to play it.

What are the features of the remake?

* Redrawed graph - I don't "rip" the original game. All the graphics was drawed in the Paint Brush

* Game play - The same + inovations. Using the mouse, right click to walk and left to fire. Grenadies and Rockets aren't in the remake. Your ammo isn't unlimited, you will have clips with 30 bullets each. When the bullets run out, your soldier will recharge the weapon (amazing sprite!). There's a menu with 3 options: fire mode 1 (only the closer soldier fires), fire mode 2 (everybody fires, no economy) and divide clips. Your soldier can "talk" (text on the screen, created in the editor)

* Objects - There are mines (kill the soldier), Barrels (blows up to the air and falls in the soldier, if he be there!), Ammunitions Crate (give 1 clip to the soldier or can be destroyed), Briefcase (for missions with "object recuperation").

* Music - The only thing ripped is the title sound. It is the same of the original game (with changes and efects). The inovation is the in-game music. Cannon Fodder has no music during the game but in MORE Cannon Fodder you can select 10 musics in the tracks list (some Iron Maiden!).

Hello

I very recently started making my own clone of Cannon Fodder, but I found yours and have to say i'm very impressed. Well done!

However, I am wondering if you'd like some help with this, would you be willing to send me your sourcecode for this package? I have some good ideas and would like to; number one - make some graphics and implement a MOD feature and multiplayer feature...!

If you are interested in talking more about this, which i hope you are, please e-mail me at danielc(at)aol(dot)com(dot)au

Take care!

Hi "Anonymous", Thanks for your post but I can´t contact you (you write no e-mail).

In misson 10, you start with 3 soldiers and can go left or right. First, kill the incoming flush of soldiers, as they come from both sides. Then, hunt down the others. If you killed everybody, your leader will ask for getting out. Now, just go to the end of the road (bottom of the screen).

Thanks for playing.

I always thought "Dune 2" was the original "Command & Conquer" style game, "Cannon Fodder" was definately an awesome game though!

Good work on the remake.
