Question How many "Cannon Fodder" games are out there???

Anyone might be able to tell, how many "Cannon Fodder" games are out there?
I found these:

[full commercial];
- Cannon Fodder (CD32) (1994) (Sensible Software)
[full commercial];
- Cannon Fodder: Amiga Format Christmas Special/Cannon Soccer (OCS/ECS) (1992) (Sensible Software)
[2 level demo];
- Cannon Fodder Plus (OCS/ECS) (1993) (Sensible Software)
[4 level progress demo];
- Cannon Fodder 2 (OCS/ECS) (1994) (Sensible Software)
[full commercial];
- Cannon Fodder 2: Alien Levels (OCS/ECS) (1994) (Sensible Software)
[4 level demo];
- Cannon Fodder 2: Not Very Festive (OCS/ECS) (????) (Sensible Software???)
[4 level demo];


...and still counting

If you want to count it there was that sensible soccer game with cannon fodder characters and a grenade as ball too.

No, i don't wanna count that one.
It's a shareware or freeware, build in Amos and unsupported by Sensible Software... and a crap with no highscore savin'... so it sucks all the way

erm, the game above was supported by sensi, it was released on a demo cover disk for sensi soccer, and was basically same but grenade as a ball, and with cannon fodder characters - sensi soccer 1945 I believe :-) Ohhh thats a good game ;-)

You're thinking of sensible massacre!

No highscore saving? I never recalled any high scores in any of the Cannon fodder games anyway. Just wondering

Quite right. But there's a difference in this "shoot'em up, all those soccer players" that all you do i point and shoot which gets REALLLY boring after 200 of kills - without the ability to proove this

Erm you ask for Cannon Fodder games and then dismiss one!

That is damn PATHETIC!!!! (sorry to shout but it is!!)

It is Cannon Fodder on a pitch simple, it would have made a good Cannon Fodder sub-game.. or a Good SWOS sub game !!!

Well... EXCUUUUUUUUSE MEEEEEEE!!!

BTW: You ever played Cannon Fodder?... I don't think that there was any sub-game that looked like the one mentioned above... i believe that there was NO sub-game... and i'm not interested in games that have ONE (...or two ...) sprite from CF...



PS: Should i repeat myself one more time?...

oh my god- whats with the arguing?

Sensi Soccer + cannon fodder characters = sensi soccer 1944 !! :-)

By the same creators- Sensible.... And a fine good FUN game! I'd rather play this than any Sensi soccer/ Cannon fodder game at the moment, its just so goddamn good fun- I played my gfs cousin (he's never seen an amiga ever cos I'm in japan - lol) and we had a right hoot ;-)

I'm with bippy on this one- if it would have been called Cannon Soccer- then you'd say it was a cannon fodder game right? ... Have you even played it yet?

@ Shooney: If you don't want, or want to tolerate, people's input then don't ask for it.

bippym was helping you out and your reply isn't going to encourage others to do the same.

Ok, let me be the guilty one...

All i said was: "No, i don't wanna count that one.
It's a shareware or freeware, build in Amos and unsupported by Sensible Software... and a crap with no highscore savin'... so it sucks all the way "

Then he shout at me: "That is damn PATHETIC!!!!"

Should i REALLLLLLY repeat myself that i want ONLY CF games?

Thanks for this, it was realllllly helpfull..

Ok ok , I'll agree that its not "technically" cannon fodder as the title states otherwise, ... but thats seriously the only reason why its not a cannon fodder. :-)

anyway, kambare! (good luck!)
