How do I get more Cannon crack for my videogame fix?

Videogame Filter: Anyone ever found another game that plays the same as Cannon Cat?? Too much fun, too few levels.

Cannon Cat has something I haven' t seen before: No movement keys. The only thing you can do is 'fire'. You have to trade off being able to attack enemies and navigating through the 2-d game by recoil alone. I love the gameplay. If you know Japanese could you please tell me what the author says about the game?

Strange Attractors is another "one-switch" game. You only have one button. If you don't hit the button, you just drift through space, and if you do hit the button, you're attracted to the nearest object.

Wow, Strange Attractors is a damn fun game. Thanks.

Cannon Cat has the added feature of a mouse to aim with, so it doesn't really qualify as a 'one button' game. I figure it's got to be based on some 1980s arcade game or something, it's such a simple concept I'm doubting it's new.

Many of the games from the one-button game contest mentioned in this Mefi thread are available for download at That said, my favorite one-switch game is Don't Shoot the Puppy.

Lethal Application seems to have quite similar gameplay, and has good replay value (different weapon dynamics on repeated playthroughs). Unfortunately, I do not think that the full game is available for free.

Actually, if you email me, I can get my hands on a copy. Unless you are against that sort of thing. I'd understand. Email is in profile.
