Under rating threshold (show) I have to agree with Hadro. Another huge flaw I found is that if you purchase something and don't use it in the following round, then you lose it for the round after. Why? If I don't use something, just let me keep it.

Under rating threshold (show) this game is actually terrible. once you lose, you have to start again. you should just keep your money and get to try again.

Under rating threshold (show) if you're looking to do this legit (no right click then play over and over): - After each round max out each item in this order: Thrust, Skis, Freaky, Powder, Creativity (i.e. if you only have $100, use it only on thrust, don't get thrust and skis). - Each round, hit all thrusts in a row as you're launched (how ever many you have); then use the skis next (again, how ever many you have), then use freaky ... With this method, you can beat the game quick and easy and you don't need to have great accuracy (try for 30 degrees and full power, but even so I beat each level with 40% power and 65 degrees and still beat the game). If this helped you please rate.

Under rating threshold (show) steep gap between levels, beat 100, then 200 then next is 600? and you dont get to save up money to buy more stuff to try and win. i cant think what the levels after that are like.

Under rating threshold (show) I hate that when you are firing your rocket against some of the last competitors, the arrow goes really, really fast. I keep firing at minimal power. It's very annoying. If the arrow went a little slower, it would be a lot easier.

Under rating threshold (show) Good concept, but having to restart the game if you lose? That's not good. If you really want to keep it, have to difficulties, medium where you don't have to start over, or hard where you do have to start over...

Under rating threshold (show) this game is highly overrated and it has some serious gameplay design flaws. let me elaborate: you get three attempts each level, but you have to play almost perfect at every attempt, otherwise you wont have enough money for the next level. and if you don't have enough money you can just as well restart because you have the same set of powerups on every three attempts. that means, asuming you always get the same cannon angle and power, you will have the same distance on every try. that defeats the idea of having three attempts. also as said by other people, most of the time you spend waiting for the plane to reach the water and click on one powerup. and when you have a high vertical velocity (after using three thrusters) you only have a split second chance to click. there are more but this edit box is too small and i am too lazy. if you want to play a good cannon game then search for nanaca crash in google. too bad that game is not in kongregate.

Under rating threshold (show) Ok, so here are my thoughts about this game. 1. Controls are awful. On top of having to do everything near-perfectly in order to get past a level, the power/angle thing becomes increasingly irritating as you get further in the game. Making it go faster does not add a challenge, it just makes it more frustrating. Graphics are ok, not my cup of tea, but decent. Music, none, unless you count that annoying 'yee-hoo' sound effect. Gameplay and upgrading system is a mess. I personally don't like games where u have to repurchase upgrades every round, it seems pointless, and a creativity bonus...? Lame. It's a good idea and not bad for a 'prototype' (which it obviously isn't considering this game has been on here forever with no sort of updates) but what it really lacks is playability.

Under rating threshold (show) I got a awsome combo, ith this you can get to 7000 Meters! 1. your angle has 2 be on the most horizontal position. 2. try to fire as hard as possible. 3. use freaky. 4. immediately after the freaky use trust. 5. do that with as many freakys and trust you got. 6. cash left? buy Creativity. THUMB THIS UP SO OTHER PPL CAN SEE IT

Under rating threshold (show) What a sucky game... 1. If you don't have the cannon angle and power set right. You lose. 2. If you don't make enough money to get the needed upgrades to go further... You lose. 3 If you lose... You have to start over which makes this game highly frustrating.... ESPECIALLY trying to reach 7,000m for the hard badge... >.

Under rating threshold (show) Easiest way to get badge: when you hit water after the 2nd run right click and hit play. It will keep the cash you got and take you to the shop, and you can do the level again. keep doing this until you have a decent amount of cash. max your style points, and make sure you are staying on level 1. keep buying stuff (thrust most important) until you have over 1000$. Then buy everything. Get about a 30 degree angle and go for max power. as soon as you launch use all 3 thrust. the use a ski each time you hit water. after those run out use the fish when you hit the water. rate up to help others!

Under rating threshold (show) Terrible, terrible game. The arrow moves far too quickly and in order to get the upgrades you need to have a perfect launch which is impossible when the arrow is moving so fast you can't even see it. The fact that you have to start from the beginning after you don't beat the distance is probably the worst of it all. I mean seriously 20m off and I lose 20 minutes of my time. TERRIBLE. Too bad there's no 0/5 because 1/5 is a compliment.

Under rating threshold (show) Its a good platform for a game but like many others have said, it has a few design flaws that really lower the playability factor of it. 1) The most common that seems to appear in the comment box is that with certain items (Ski's, Freaky etc) is that they are one use items), thus one mistake basically can cause you to start from square one again. 2) When getting mid way through the game, the arrow moves exponentitally fast making it extremely difficult to actually progress. 3) If you lose a level you go back to square one. I font mind one use items but with certain upgrades they should be permanent and instead of starting at square one you should be able to reply the levels, for this I only give it a 3/5
