Arcade Skill Game for Kids – Cannon Coinage
Catch an egg and coins in this fun game! Cannon Coinage is a tricky and addicting arcade-style skill game for kids where you have to use an egg-firing cannon to retrieve gold coins that are stuck up a tree. Collect all of the gold coins in each level to progress by dislodging them from the tree and catching or collecting them. Each time your egg hits off a coin, the coin falls from the tree. As it falls, it can dislodge other coins from the branches if it makes contact with them. Be careful however, because if your egg falls all the way back down to the ground, it cracks – so you have to catch it too.
You must very quickly move your cannon over and back underneath the tree to catch the falling egg and to collect the coins that are falling or land on the ground. If you keep letting the egg fall to the hard ground, it breaks open and it’s game over! Collect all of the coins in as few shots as possible to score extra points.
This colorful egg-shooting game really will test and exercise your prediction skills, hand-eye coordination and reaction speed, as you have to quickly position the cannon to catch the falling objects (especially your egg!) You’ll also need really nifty fingers to succeed. Good luck Speedy – Let’s load up that cannon and have a Blast!
How to Play: Use your computer keyboard to maneuver your Cannon along the bottom of the game screen. Use the Left and Right Arrow keys to move it side-to-side, or alternatively, use the A and D keys. To fire your egg, aim using your computer mouse and Left Click to fire. To help you aim, you’ll see a thin line coming out of the Cannon. This indicates the direction the egg will fly once you shoot it. Your goal in each level is to fire your egg at the Gold Coins in order to dislodge them from the tree, and collect them. If the egg touches off one coin, it falls down. On their way down, both the egg and the dislodged coins can hit off other coins. This gives you a combo, which enables you to score extra points.
Each coin you catch with the cannon earns you bonus points. You earn maximum points if you catch the coin before it touches the ground. Remember, catching your egg has to be your main priority! Each time the egg hits the ground, it cracks. If it falls more than 3 times, it breaks open and you have to replay the level. You complete the level when you collect all of the coins (including coins on the ground too). You can see your ‘Egg Health’ at the bottom of the game screen. As the levels progress, they become more difficult, and obstacles and power-ups are introduced. Star power-ups give you double and triple points depending on how many coins you knock down with them. Red spiky obstacles are to be avoided – if your egg hits off them it becomes more damaged.
Tip: Fire your egg at an angle to increase your chances of dislodging more coins. If you just shoot straight up, the egg is more likely to come straight back down. Try to predict the route your egg will take after it hits a coin, so that you can quickly position your cannon to help to catch it as it falls back down.
