Cannon Cadets by XMG Studios (Submitted)

Its finally here! The long awaited launch of Cannon Cadets is less than a month away! We are proud to give Touch Arcade members the first look at this awesome game!

In the new app, you are Rocketboy, who must save your team of Cannon Cadets from the grasp of Gordo, an evil genius lab monkey and his army of robots, determined to eradicate the universe of all that is fun. Gordo grew up in a mind altering test lab and developed a real hate for all the cheerful happy people playing outside. All the experiments left him an evil genius with an antenna with which he controls his evil robot army. The Cannon Cadets must stop Gordo and his robot army from destroying the universe!

Shoot your Cadet at the robots, trying to knock them out while dealing with complex structures that follow advanced physics rules including rolls, slides and hinges! Each level is a new challenge, from basic structures to complex Rube Goldberg-esk machines that will test the skills of even the bravest cadet.

As you play, rescue your Cannon Cadet team and add them to your arsenal and gain special powers like "Octopus Rain" , "Rocketgirl Burst" and more!

To be one of the first to be notified on release (and a few pre-release codes will be given out....) follow XMG Studio on Facebook here!

More info to come soon...

Save the Cadets.... Save the Universe!

Just so you know, the award winning graphics designer of Little Metal Ball Gold was the lead designer on this game, so its shaping up to be pretty spectacular!

But no really.... a few things:

1. Hinge Physics - through the use of a new physics engine, we have created a full set of hinge physics effects, where the connections between two items effects how they move around a hinge point

2. Moving enemies that can be attacked for additional bonuses and secret levels

3. "Boss Levels" where not only do you have to beat the robots, but you have to free one of your Cannon Cadet team members as well, adding their special abilities to your arsenal

and the coolest thing of all... (not sure if I'm even allowed to say this but what the heck...)

A FULL FLEDGED LEVEL EDITOR WITH SOCIAL SHARING SO OTHERS CAN PLAY THE LEVELS YOU CREATE!

Will there be an iPad version of this game ? The graphics look fantastic, and I'd love to play this hi-res on the iPad screen!

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...
IAPs = I Ain't Purchasing, son !
