Thankfully, the Good and the Bad can team up to your advantage for extra points and a brand new vision on the game play. If you think you master the game because you can carefully land on the crash mat with all your teeth remaining, think twice! The levels are designed in such a way that you can use ambient elements to gain splatter points while still being able to complete the levels.
After metaphorically referring to the Good and the Bad, you may expect me to talk about the Ugly, but I can't because there is nothing of the sort. The graphics and effects are excellent although not extremely varied. In the same vein than the original version, the visuals were designed with simplicity in mind. The arcade feeling is sparkling all over the levels and the atmosphere is present.
What makes this game different from Human Cannonball is the depth and attention given to the game play. Admittedly, Human Cannonball was only a mini-game, thus it is to be expected that a full game has much more to offer. The initial game had several flaws which are now, for the most part, corrected. The most important drawback was the short living of the game: technically, there were too few levels to keep you coming back for more. With the edit were born a well designed set of levels, play modes, secrets to unlock and a smoother game flow. Other improvements include a slower power meter, changes in the controls and a new ability to turn your stuntman into a sack of flour for a more gentle experience.
Although all the pieces that were modified have been enhanced with brilliance, there are certain things that are still bothering me. In this game of precision where the physics are exaggerated for additional fun, the static wind turns out to be a nuisance - a trouble that will make the difference between a good and a bad performance in career mode. My suggestion to the creator is to make the air's force and direction smoothly vary so players can wait until they find a favourable time for the launching. Also, even though there are more levels, I miss the ability to create my own levels and play others'. Lastly, while the online high scores are indeed a great feature, they would be more useful if they worked. Offline high scores would have been a good addition, after all they are easy to implent... and they are reliable!
Overall, Super Human Cannonball is a great arcade game with a professional touch that will not disappoint you. Just like the original, it takes seconds to learn and hours to master, making it an ideal time killer. If you liked Human Cannonball, you will love the expansion for the new material it has in stock.

As a promising dare-evil, you must take to the air and judge power, angle
and wind speed/direction, in order to complete an elaborate array of stunts.
Of course each stunt you complete earns you points, but heres the twist, you
can also earn 'splatter points'. So if you miss your target, do it with style!
The more spectacular, the more points!
