XMG Studio Prepares to Launch Cannon Cadets into the iTunes App Store Stratosphere


XMG Studio today announces the upcoming launch of Cannon Cadets, its latest mobile game available for iPhone and iPod Touch users, rocketing into Apple’s App Store in early August 2010.

From the award-winning company that brought you Drag Racer, Little Metal Ball and Marine Sharpshooter, XMG Studio’s Cannon Cadets is a supremely addictive physics game with 80 visually stimulating and diabolically devious levels to challenge children and adults alike.

In the new game, you are Rocketboy, who must save your team of Cannon Cadets from Gordo, an evil lab monkey, and his robot army, that are determined to rid the universe of all that is fun. Players will shoot their cadets at the robots, trying to knock them out while dealing with complex structures that follow advanced physics rules including rolls, slides and hinges!

Each level is a new challenge, from basic structures to complex Rube Goldberg-esque machines that will test the skills of even the bravest cadet. As players advance, the Cannon Cadet team members will need to rescue fun new friends and add to the player’s arsenal of special powers to use against Gordo.

Features of Cannon Cadets include:

- 80 beautifully illustrated mind twisting levels on four unique planets

- 4 playable characters (RocketBoy, RocketGirl, Pop, and Granati)

- Hidden Bonus Levels

- Amazing game physics including hinged and moving objects, as well as complex chain reaction style challenges

Cannon Cadets will fling into the iTunes store in early August for the iPhone and iPod Touch, with an iPad version to follow soon. For additional information check out www.facebook.com/xmgstudio or follow us on Twitter at @xmgstudo.
