Once more unto the beach! Your battalion’s on the march, there are snipers around every corner and you’ve forgotten to pack your sandwiches. This is the grim reality of modern warfare. Now you can experience it for yourself, as the battle-hardened troopers we lovingly call cannon fodder, cock their rifles, prime their grenades and march off into battle once more. They won’t all come back but that means more sarnies for the rest of us, so chin-up.
After the success of Cannon Fodder, a sequel was inevitable. The basic gameplay remained the same – guide a team of soldiers through a succession of levels populated by trees, huts and lakes. The major change is that the plot involves time travel, rather than straightforward war situations, and this means levels taking place in different scenarios including a strange ‘Alien Planet’.
The levels include a variety of vehicles such as jeeps, tanks and helicopters, which can be used to shoot or even run down enemy soldiers. Standard bullets are joined by collectible grenades – use these wisely, as nothing else can destroy huts or vehicles. Finding strategic defence positions can be vital as well.
