Cannon Canon: Guns Of Icarus


Veterans of our adventures in Air Buccaneers will understand why I was excited to discover airship-defence game Guns Of Icarus, which is web-based 3D combat thingy with both multiplayer and single player campaign aspects. The basic "lite" version allows you to play through a limited version of the game, which gives you a taste of the aeronautical antics. I've not braved the multiplayer as yet, but I'm a little disappointed by how far away the sky-pirates remain from your aerial cargo-ship. Running around manning the guns is fun, and the tech-tree progression gives you something to aim for, but a genuine successor to Air Buccaneers, I suspect, remains the stuff of optimistic dreams.
