In possibly the best news all year, the classic Cannon Fodder makes a welcome return to Xbox 360 and PC.
For those old enough to remember the early 90’s you will almost certainly remember the classic top down shooter Cannon Fodder. It was released on just about every platform at the time; Amiga through to SNES and I personally spent a hell of a lot of time playing it 🙂
GFI and Codemasters are handling the brand new game which will be on Xbox 360 and PC, there are rumours that the game will only be available in Russia though nothing has been announced on this yet. Here are some details:
Several military groups of Europe, Asia and Africa have made a military alliance to establish dictatorship by joint efforts. Your goal is to stop them at any cost… Even with a price of thousands lives of soldiers named “cannon fodder”, who are ready to die everywhere and every time it’s needed. ‘Cause it’s their work.
You have a small army which consists of only “cannon fodder” soldiers, who are ready to rush into fight with the enemy, sparing neither effort nor oneself. The player will have to pass several episodes full of cartoon violence among different locations, and the Earth is not the limit – it’s time to go into open space and show the enemy “who’s daddy”.
You’ll get classic isometric environment in full 3D, weather effects, change of time, destructible environment, physical water – all this and a lot more you’ll find in Cannon Fodder 3.
