Sponsored Game Review: Super Kid Cannon

May 3, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: Super Kid Cannon is an Android game that puts players in control of a red panda on a journey to safe his beloved Justine from the evil Snow Leaopard, Khan. Jumping from cannon to cannon, players have to time things right and get to the top of each level, collecting as many coins as possible on the way. Sort of like a mix between a pinball game and classic, retro platformer, Super Kid Cannon is great for little ones as well as those who want to play something with a lot of character. Take a look at the trailer below to get a taste of Super Kid Cannon.

How it Works: First of all, you’ll need to download Super Kid Cannon from the Play Store, and once you’ve done that you can start playing.

The game is really simple to start playing, all you need to do is to touch the screen to get the cannon to launch our hero to the next cannon. However, you need to time this right, otherwise the cannon might launch you in the completely wrong direction you need to go.

The blend of pinball and platform mechanics works well together to deliver a decent pace throughout the game and allows players – no matter their age – to approach Super Kid Cannon at their own pace. The classic, retro tunes in the background are a nice touch and the graphics are colorful and engaging. Easy enough for youngsters to play, but satisfying for big kids too, there’s a lot to love about Super Kid Cannon and it’s free to play. Super Kid Cannon also has a partnership with Seeds, a company looking to change the world through gaming, and it’s a very admirable cause, indeed.
