* Cannon Land * Action-physics game (trailer inside!)

Hello Touch Arcade users!

We just released a teaser trailer for Cannon Land, a game of physics and precise timing for cannon-shooting.

Calm down, calm down, it is nothing like Angry Birds!!!
More like a cross between Hook Champ and Peggle, I guess...

Here's the teaser:

...and you can read more about the game here:

Cannon Land is developed by Currant Cat. It is the company's first project, but everybody in the team (me + 3 other dudes) have previous experience in game design and development, and we've been working together for 3 years now.

So have a look, tell me what you think!
Oh, and follow the Facebook page if you feel like it - it will be our main page for content updates!

I'll also be posting more arts and screenshots for the game here, regularly.
Feel free to comment, ask or demand anything! We are very excited about this project, and hope you guys share the same feeling!

UPDATE: Screenshots!
Here's some screenshots of the current build (we are working on implement the other scenarios into the game).

The "world selection" screen...

...and the rest of the scenarios!

A safe shot!

Bumpy area!

Beware of spiky mines!

I'm not sure why this hasn't gotten more attention. A few people will probably cry "Land-a Panda!" which wasn't exactly original anyway, but the gameplay in this seems considerably different with the obstacle/scenery interaction. A bit Pachinko-esque. Looks like something I'd buy

Thanks for the comments, guys!

As for the inevitable comparison with the "Land-a-Panda", well... we were a bit sad that it was released before us. We had the trailer ready to submit and spread the word, but decided to hold it for a week just to avoid immediate comparisons.

In the end, I think the games are quite different from each other: Cannon Land is less puzzle, and more like a balance between the cannon mechanics from DKC and a Pachinko (think Peggle). The levels will also be larger, with checkpoints - resembling Hook Champ's type of levels.

We are a small team, working mostly on our free time, and I believe we are doing an outstanding job. Cannon Land game will be fun, cute and challenging - exactly as we first envisioned it!
