Random Encounter Live - Cannon Fodder

Danny heads out to the front lines with today's Random Encounter, as we play Cannon Fodder.

This military strategy game from the makers of Sensible Soccer was a staple of many Amiga collections, including that belonging to our very own Danny O'Dwyer. Join us as we relive the dense jungle and frozen tundras of Cannon Fodder.

This live stream contains strong sexual content, nudity, strong language, the use of drugs, and most controversially of all, Danny O'Dwyer.

Somebody please tell me what music the intro is a remix of. It's driving me crazy and I have to remember it.

Cannon fodder is a superb game and has definitely stood the test of time. I first played it on the PC after days of trying to free up enough base memory to get it to friggin run! I still have it on my gameboy and god damn is it a hard game xD

I think every old school cannon fodder player feels your hurt when jools and jops died :(

RIP man.

Can anyone remember the Cannon Fodder level that came free with the Christmas Amiga Format. It was Cannon Fodder Mixed with Sensible Soccer. The goal keepers were holding Bazookas.

It's been a while when I played Cannon Fodder, but I'm pretty sure this is Mirror's Edge and not Cannon Fodder.

omg the f***ing happiness this game brought me back in the day, loved everything about this game.

also probably has more to do with what got me into gaming than prince of persia or captain comet...lol

nice, cannon fodder is one of my all time favorites, I still remember Jools and Jops and trying to keep alive through the whole game, always kept dying on the arctic mission where you had 1 soldier in both parts (horrible horrible second part) and it was really hard to do without losing them...since you had to replay the first one all over in you failed the second once once (I might be confusing the levels with CF 2 though, they were very much alike)...

Next episode should show off the wonders of WINGS  by Cinemaware on the Amiga, a favourite from my all too distant childhood.

There is a punishment for killing natives, at least there was on the Amiga version, if you kill too many of them ( two i think it was ) they start throwing spears at you.

did this game have a shed that continuously reproduced enemy troops? was there a women constantly giving birth in there? also you had a limit of troops for the whole game which i thought was mean - infinite troops from a single shed but a limited number from a whole country. obviously your country lacked women.
