Sensible Software‘s classic ‘titchy man’ overhead scrolling shooter, Cannon Fodder, is well-represented on the Jaguar, having been ported by a company called The Dome Software Developments, who did a worthy job with the conversion.

Cannon Fodder, Game Boy Color
Believe it or not: Sensible Software‘s classic Amiga game, Cannon Fodder, was also released for the Game Boy Color, and it’s actually not a bad game at all. It was developed by Sensible Software themselves – so is very authentic to the original – and was published by Codemasters in 2000.
Cannon Fodder, Archimedes
The Acorn Archimedes conversion of the classic Cannon Fodder is pretty much identical to the Amiga original, even down the music, which is not always the case with Cannon Fodder conversions.
Cannon Fodder 2, Amiga
Cannon Fodder 2 is for players who want more Cannon Fodder action, and simply did not get enough of its predecessor. Sadly, it’s not quite as good as the first game, so may cause an overdose…
Sensible World of Soccer, Amiga
Arguably the best version of Sensible Soccer, on any system. It has international and domestic teams, leagues, cups, friendlies, career mode, specials, and more. The level of detail is quite remarkable.
Cannon Fodder, Atari ST
Sensible Software‘s classic Cannon Fodder is still the same great overhead war game on the Atari ST as it was on the original platform – the Amiga. Although it has to be said that it’s not quite as good as the Amiga version…
Wizball, Atari ST
Wizball is a really easy game to play. You just have to know how to play it…
Parallax, Commodore 64
First released by Ocean Software in 1986, Parallax is a wild overhead shooter from legendary UK gamedev company Sensible Software.
Sensible Golf, PC
Relatively obscure follow-up to Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder.
Sensible Golf was first released in 1994 for the PC and Amiga, and didn’t really make much of an impact on the market, although it’s not a bad game at all.
Cannon Fodder, Amiga
Sensible Software‘s brilliant Cannon Fodder is possibly their finest hour.
From the hilarious intro song, to the compelling action of the main game – Cannon Fodder is about as much fun as computerised war, with little titchy men and a mouse could possibly be.
