Cannonhead Clash

Cannonhead Clash is a two player bomb-lobbing game featuring two things, known as Cannonheads, chucking bombs at each other. The object of the game is to hit the other Cannonhead with a bomb, causing them to fall into the water below. The bombs can also be used to destroy the terrain! Use this to your advantage, and try not to let your side get destroyed too much--you can't jump, and you can't climb up walls more than one block high!

To move your Cannonhead, all you need to do is hold left or right on the joystick. The fire button allows you to shoot your bomb. Remember, the longer you hold down the fire button before releasing it, the farther your bomb will go! Strategy and quick thinking are key--may the best Cannonhead win!

Its rare to find a game that could have been done on the 2600 already and just hasn't been. This is one of those perfect "shoulda been" titles. Is it complex? Impossible programming? A technical feat? Nope. is it a LOT of classic Atari fun? 100%!

This is right up there with Fall Down for me. It's one of those classic two player style games that would have been mega hits if just someone had thought of it! The characters are adorable, the levels are unique and clever, and the premise is so simple anyone can pick up and play. It's ideal for a fast two player game, but I gotta admit, the CP ain't no slouch. This game is a legit "Blast".
