Shooting a cute orange kitten out of a cannon, then watching it bounce along is the simple and addictive idea behind the online flash game Kitten Cannon. The launch angle is chosen using arrow keys, and pressing and holding the space bar shoots the kitten.
Trampolines, bombs and explosives that are littered over the side-scrolling playing field and propel the tabby, while metal spikes and venus fly traps kill poor kitty. The high score is then displayed onscreen once it comes to a bloody rest. The cat has unlimited lives and each game only takes a few seconds. Developed by Dan Fleming of Burst Studios, Kitten Cannon was made using Macromedia Flash software and is viewed using flash player that can be downloaded free.
