Newly-formed indie studio Skyjoy Interactive have recently unveiled their incredibly fun-looking debut game Super Kid Cannon. Described as a “vertical launcher,” SKC will see players guiding a plucky lil’ red panda — the eponymous Kid — through a series of fantastical aerial obstacle courses in a bid to rescue his beloved from the clutches of evil.
The fast-paced vertical-scrolling action glimpsed in SKC’s trailer (see below) looks like it could be a blast, and I’m absolutely loving the game’s wacky premise and über cute characters (red pandas ftw!), so I’ll definitely be picking this one up when it hits the App Store next month.
Here’s the official game description we received earlier today from Skyjoy:
Super Kid Cannon is a free-to-play, fast-paced, action packed, family friendly adventure that takes all the fun of classic platformers and turns it all sideways to create a unique gameplay experience. We can only describe the genre as a Vertical Launcher. The inspiration behind SKC came from classics such as Mario and Donkey Kong.
ETA: Super Kid Cannon is set to soft launch on the New Zealand App Store this February, and should be available in the US and the rest of the world very soon thereafter. As mentioned above, it will be a free-to-play title (with optional IAPs). To stay updated on everything SKC, be sure to drop by Skyjoy’s Facebook page and Twitter feed regularly.
