A “now” retro game released as a coin-operated arcade game in 1996, Cannon Dancer, also known as “Osman” in the US, has become an absolute legend in arcade history. Cannon Dancer (Osman) is an Action Jump & Run set in a dystopian late 21st century, in which the world is under the control of a single federal government. One day, a new threat known as “Abdullah the Slaver” – an evil sorceress who wants to take control of the world – appears, causing widespread terror and panic. This fear incites the abandonment of all economic activity and corruption in the government, which now undermines the foundations of society itself. Judicial Affairs Director, Jack Layzon, fears the worst and summons a lone assassin.
I would tell you all about the game, but I’d rather show it by having you watch my video.
