Ragdoll Cannon 2 Instructions

The controls of Ragdoll Cannon 2 are very similar to those of the previous game in the series. For the most part, you will use your mouse: (1) move your mouse to aim, and when you think it's aimed at the RIGHT direction, (2) press the left click button to fire away. That's about everything you need to learn about the controls. Let's have a closer look at the game.

Ragdoll Cannon 2 Walkthrough

Ragdoll Cannon 2 - obviously, this is a sequel to the original Ragdoll Cannon game. Apparently, Johnny-K, the creator of the series, doesn't want to beat around the bush when it comes to naming his games. HOWEVER, whatever he lacked in fancy naming, he more than compensated for it with absorbing and entertaining game play!

The core concept and game play of Ragdoll Cannon 2 is identical to prior offerings in the series: with the help of high powered artillery, you will fire a hapless stick figure (a ragdoll to be exact) across a course that is filled with all sorts of obstacles. Your objective is to hit a small target. A single touch or hit would win the round, BUT that is easier said than done. You can easily liken its game play to a three ring circus that is combined seamlessly with an archery range.

In Ragdoll Cannon 2, the 'HERE' block (which was your target in the previous game) has been replaced by a much clearer and more vivid 'bull's eye' target. And to make the visuals even better, the cannon was also given a 'make over' - making it a bit more shinier than the cannon in the previous Ragdoll Cannon game. Another major visual / graphics change is that, instead of the previous blueprint style, Johnny-K's game now has 3 different themes: (1) first, we have the Matchsticks, (2) Pastels, and for people who love Halloween themes, there's the (3) Skeleton theme for your taking. Each of these themes have 20 levels before you can unlock the next, and then finally converging together to make up the final and the hardest 10 levels.

For those of you who can't quite work out how many levels there are in this game, I did the math for you: this game comes with a whopping 70 levels that are increasing in difficulty and challenge! You will start off with simple levels that require simple shots to get the job done. HOWEVER, the difficulty quickly ramps up and you will soon find yourself trying to figure out complex trajectories on top of your head to hit that 'bull's eye' target.

Adding to the complications, you will find specialized blocks, which, for some reason, are NOT given any name! Perhaps Johnny-K really doesn't care about naming - whether it's for the game or the elements in it. You will find blocks that burn bricks; there are blocks that snap sticks, and those are just to name a few. These blocks that snap sticks are marked with an X (crossed matchsticks, a skill and bones, or crossed bones). Only live stick man parts can touch the 'bull's eye' target to advance. With that in mind, these blocks will be your enemies for the most part. HOWEVER, there is a puzzle in the game that relies on using these blocks to your advantage to solve it.

Now, you may be thinking: 'this is all over my head! I'm not good at physics!' Well, don't fret if you are struggling in whatever form of science. I myself suck BIG time at physics. You see, while the golf-style scoring of the game encourages you to shoot as few ragdolls as possible, you can fire as many shots as you can or as necessary. And there's always the reset button that allows you to... well, reset the level. The good thing is that it doesn't entail any penalty or punishment to your score. When you get to the 10th level, you will surely have an idea of what is going on (or you may have gone crazy trying to figure it out).

If you love the first game in the series, you will surely love this one... or you will hate it. Well, the extra levels in the game are surely welcome, BUT let me warn you: some of them are excruciatingly difficult. Some of them could easily turn into pixel hunting. If you are someone who is used to pixel hunting and you don't mind, you are set. HOWEVER, for the rest of us, it could easily be frustrating. The good news, however, is that these pixel hunting levels are few and far in between.

If you loved the original blueprint style graphics (just like I did), well, the new themes are a little disappointing. The graph paper reminded me of my good and old calculus days. The new styles in the game make it more in line with your average and casual stick figure games. YES, they are colorful, BUT they are not distinctive. While the new themes are not bad, they are not as good as the blueprint style graphics that the previous game had. BUT that's just me.

If you can forgive the occasional pixel hunting levels and if you can ignore the disappointing graphics, Ragdoll Cannon 2 has a LOT of good stuff to offer. This game will surely test your mind and skill... with ragdolls and cannons. You don't find A LOT of games that do this.
