It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Cannon Cat!
An ex-rocket scientist and a brilliant programmer – David Ngo and Don-Duong Quach – teamed up to form Loqheart, the studio behind Cannon Cat. The duo created an addictive adventure game based on a heroic cat on a mission to rescue goldfish from a villainous emu. This 2-D action-adventure game reminds me a bit of Donkey Kong, as you blast the superhero feline from cannon to cannon, collecting floating fish and avoiding hovering obstacles along the way. The game is simple and fun; it requires a little coordination and precise timing to advance to the next level.
The Corona team loved the quirky characters (I’ll confess that we have some cat lovers among us) and the fantastic graphics (every minute detail from the floating clouds to the determined expression on our hero’s face was exceptional). Cannon Cat has a lovable storyline, offers great gameplay and is super high quality to boot.
Cannon Cat hit the App Store on Thursday, April 26 and has since received accolades from a number of review sites and was an instant hit among players. The game was featured on the App Store as New & Noteworthy, has quickly risen to become one of the top 3 free iPad apps in the U.S. and is the #1 free iPad game in both the Kids and Adventure categories. Cannon Cat also snagged the Game of the Week title in the European App Store and is a Top 10 game for iPad in 59 App Stores worldwide.
So whether you’re a cat lover, an adventure game fan or just have a fondness for goldfish, Cannon Cat is a blockbuster game that’s certainly worth a download.
