Open Fodder

An open source port of Cannon Fodder

Project maintained by OpenFodder Hosted on GitHub Pages — Theme by mattgraham



Cannon Fodder is an action-strategy shoot ‘em up game developed by Sensible Software and published by Virgin Interactive.

The game is military-themed and based on shooting action but with a strategy game-style control system. The player directs troops through numerous missions, battling enemy infantry, vehicles and installations.


While Open Fodder is packaged with four demos, the full game requires the retail release available from GOG, or the data extracted from the Amiga version using SOS_Unpacker or the WHDLoad installer.
