Firing The Atomic Cannon
11:12 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
In a recent review Macworld's Game Room examined Atomic Cannon, a ballistics game in the tradition of Scorched Earth. Players choose from a variety of weapon types to unleash on their tank based enemies. The Game Room gave Atomic Cannon a score of 3.5 out of 5 mice.
From the review:
Atomic Cannon—so named for a dark period of our recent history when nuclear powers actually did develop battlefield artillery capable of delivering a nuclear payload—features a tremendous variety of options to tweak and tool performance suited for your machine, and has some really nice special effects. I love the graded and shaded plume effects when you launch a missile, for example, and some explosions have downright nifty particle effects.To read the rest of the review click over to The Game Room at the link below.
Macworld Game Room: Atomic Cannon Review
You also have control over which landscapes Atomic Cannon displays, tank names and colors, font settings, and more game settings than you can shake a stick at—a dizzying number of options ranging from how many battles per deathmatch or how many rounds you’ll play to how often the wind changes direction, how hard the computer-controlled opponents are, how magnificent the explosions are and much more. In retrospect, maybe there’s a few too many—sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming deciding how you’re going to configure the game.
