Title: [PSP GAME] Kitten Cannon
Post by: sg57 on March 16, 2008, 05:55:30 PM
Nickname: SG57
Projet name : Kitten Cannon
From : USA
Division : PSP Game
Original enter : YES
Support Motion : NO
In last NEO Compo this project have won in the top 10 : NO
Project description: 

Here's a PSP clone of the popular flash game
"Kitten Cannon" by Dan Fleming.
Kitten Cannon is very simple to play and maybe harder to watch if you're the squeamish type  :'(

Just aim the cannon using the up/down directional pad buttons or analog stick and use [X] to fire.  The red bar on the cannon indicates the power of your shot.  Leave the rest to gravity and the objects that litter the ground.  Press [START] to pause and SELECT while paused to return to the main menu.  My high score is 3852 feet! Beat that score and I'll give you a cookie  :-*

Take screenshots with the TRIANGLE button - saved in "Kitten Cannon/Screenshots/'.  Highscores are now automatically saved in the Screenshots folder.  Please redownload if you have a version released before 8 AM on this boards time. (just replace the eboot and add a screenshots folder if you dont want to have the longer transfer time).

Credits:
Game sprites, game sound effects and concept are
from the flash version of Kitten Cannon so the
rightful authors of those get credit as well.
The background music is the instrumental version
of Daft Punk and Kanye West's - "Harder Better
Faster Stronger". This uses OSlib, an advanced
2D graphics library for the PSP. The OSlib intro
was created by Brunni.  AlwaysAmiYumi
for quick, responsive testing.

Everything uncredited so far was done by me (SG57).

Enjoy and vote for it if you like it more then any other entry in the competition  ~sm-32.gif~

P.S. I don't know what the whole 3.xx, slim, phat issues are - all I know that this has been tested both on a phat and a slim and worked, 3.xx i can't say no or yes to - if i get word that it doesn't work on 3.xx i can recompile to work - thanks :)

EDIT

I updated hte info, basically I added screenshots.  Press TRIANGLE at any time to take a screenshot, stored in "Kitten Cannon/Screenshots" folder.  Highscores are now automatically saved as well, in the Screenshots folder.

Please redownload if you downloaded before the last time this post was edited  :-X

Haha nice entry.  Not much of a game but at least it's amusing.  I like the splash screen effect and the virtual violence.  It works on my fat PSP with 3.80 M33-5.  So far my high score is 3151 ft.  I like the choice of music but it quickly gets repetitive.

"A video game is a game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device." - wiki

I'd say it fits into that category  ::sm-29.gif::

And yeah, the music may get repetitive considering only one is included... OSlib uses it's own form of music (.bgm) so mp3 playback would be only possible if hte user converted their to .bgm using Oslib's converter...

If you have any recommendations for a good ambient background music, lemme know.

And yeah nice highscore, I still have got you beat ;)  however a guy named jsharrad has me beat by far:

I'm currently considering adding a little kick-powerup where you can have a boot appear and kick the kitten to help get out of hte way of a plant or just coming to a dead stop
