I love this old Flash game which you attempt to propel a human cannonball over the longest distance possible. It’s very short (less than 5 mins for each game unlike those damn Tower Defense games)
Although the characters in this game come from an adult game Cross†Channel, this little game is perfectly PG.
The in-game instructions are in Japanese so I have done a small summary of the main features of the game below. There’s more detailed English instructions for the 1.05 version of the game at jayisgames.com.
To start you select a trajectory to propel your unwitting human cannonball (I believe he’s called Taichi) into the sky. Select an almost vertical trajectory and you can probably get a result like this below.
After you have clicked and set the trajectory, sit back and watch as Taichi bounces up and down until his velocity drops to 0. When he hits a character on the ground, he may be affected in a number of ways like increased velocity, slowdown or even stopped which concludes the game.
Bad effect (but good for Taichi)
All this is automatically resolved so the only way you can increase the distance travelled is by using Aerials. When Taichi is ascending, click to push him diagonally downwards with an increased speed (works well to direct him to a beneficial character on the ground). On descending, you can click to drive him diagonally upwards (both to avoid certain characters on the ground as well as to build up speed) The Aerial button flashes red for the former type Aerials (limited to three) and blue for the latter (recharges upon descending).
When the Special word flashes on the screen for a split second, just click the mouse for some really OTT powers (a bit like the tag team powers in the Marvel Vs Capcom series)
My best score is 7399.51m through a potent mix of pure skill and extreme luck. Just kidding about the pure skill part
There’s three versions of this game on the .NET. I’m not sure of the differences between the three versions because I only play version 1.07 on the official(?) site.
