Adult Swim games has some interesting free flash games available. The one where play a guy trying to whack chips out of a vending machine, the one where you play a hooker killing zombies. For their latest offering they have decided to pay homage to one of the great games of the 16 bit era: Cannon Fodder:
In the original, you had an army of tiny guys, not unlike lemmings, who could shoot and throw grenades. The missions were one of two: Kill all enemies, or Kill all enemies and destroy enemy buildings. The controls were ridiculously simple: Left click on the map for the guys to walk there, right click for them to shoot there. It was awsome and gruesome.
Adult Swim’s take on this is to give the guns to Lolcats. Yes, lolcats. They run around the forest killing each other, and defending cardboard forts:
When they die, a little speech bubbles appears with ‘OMG!’ or ‘Noes!’. It is very nicely done. The spirit of the original Cannon Fodder is maintianed in every way. Do yourself a favour and try it out.
