Summary

Pretty lousy game

The Good

As a kid, I thought this game was pretty fun, watching the little guy jump up from level to level. However, these days, it doesn't even hold its nostalgic charm.

The Bad

The game was too short. There were only THREE levels and once you were done with them, the levels started over with different timing intervals. Thus, once you finished the three levels, the game was boring and no longer held my interest. Further, the game was too difficult. The first board and second boards were ok once you got your timing intervals down. However, the third board is just impossible. I only defeated it a few times before I just got too frustrated.

The Bottom Line

A good idea for a game in theory, but CannonBall Blitz fell much too far short of the mark.
