-Full in-game control with D-pad/trackball or touchscreen
-Overlay of angle, velocity, current and high scores
-Change projectile size in Custom game

-Machine gun mode
And much more...
Cannon is a 2D trajectory simulation/game. The basic objective is to adjust your angle and power in order to hit a target.
Version 2 recreates Cannon from the ground up using the AndEngine open source 2D game engine.
The touch screen controls use pressure sensitivity that will likely need adjusted for your device. It is in the Scale preferences screen. Move your finger with a soft touch to adjust angle and power, press harder to fire.
Too slow/boring? Increase the speed multiplier, also in Scale preferences.
Random Targets: Targets are placed randomly on the screen and you try to hit them to gain points. With both Collision and Keep Targets options enabled, as is the default, it becomes a real challenge as old targets become obstacles.
Custom: Create your own target via screen coordinates and change a variety of variables to try hitting it.
Internet & read phone state are required by ads.
Prevent phone from sleeping is requested by AndEngine.

The issue tracker, which can also be used for suggestions, is at http://tracker.pilot51.com. Though it should be noted that Cannon has been mothballed due to too many negative/unconstructive comments and most of my other apps doing much better and consuming my time.

Works smoothly. Could be a good teaching tool. I made a similar program on my calculator. Then tried to adapt it to a "tanks" game.... didn't work....
it works great on my mt3g slide. Definatley helps with my physics. Just not really fun. could use the ability to scale the size
don't work. mytouch 3g
Does what it says. But you have to understand physics. I'm 17 and I get it. Your pretty dumb if you don't
Most retarded thing i have ever put on my phone!!
Its complicated unless you understand some basic physics. Great teaching tool to add a game to physics
