Cannon Busters is a game about building artful cannons that take out other players. Think of your biggest, most expensive and difficult-to-build ballista and then throw it against a stack of wooden cannons and blast them out of the level.

Explore the fantastic land of Gearbolt as we follow a motley crew of travelers on an unforgettable journey to reunite 2 best friends. S.A.M. is a high-end, friendship robot determined to reunite with her best friend Kelby, the missing heir to her Kingdom under siege. Casey Turnbuckle is an out-dated, spunky grease-monkey repair robot, looking for an upgrade. Philly the Kid is a wanted, immortal fugitive just looking for a chance to shake them. Along for the ride is the greatest swordsman never known and an oversized Cadillac Eldorado that transforms into a sentient, giant robot. On their own, they're a lost cause. Together, they're the hippest group of travelers in action-fantasy.

Based on an American fantasy comic book series by the same name, CANNON BUSTERS is an anime series about a wanted man and his partnership with an upbeat friendship droid. Philly the Kid is cursed with immortality, and has to cope with being chased and killed by bounty hunters over and over again. But his life takes a strange turn when he meets S.A.M., an extremely friendly robot looking for her best friend, who happens to be the missing prince of Botica. Along with maintenance droid Casey Turnbuckle, the outlaw sets out on a journey in his transforming Cadillac named Bessie to find him in hopes of helping S.A.M.’s besieged kingdom.

Cannon

This show veers uncomfortably from: desert post-apocalypse, pure traditional fantasy, video game style, comedy, extreme violence and horror, mech anime, ninja epic, goofy sci-fi... I probably missed a few. I made it to the end in order to see what on earth it was all about. Nothing, apparently. All its elements are just there. It's like story-by-committee, like one exec wanted this and one exec wanted that, and so on... It might be possible to mash genre elements together, but it would have to have a compelling central story. This very half-arsedly tries this with the prince, but it's far too little, far too late. So, the end result it just a nonsensical mess. It doesn't help that the main protagonist is literally invincible, although I found the ninja more annoying, because he is apparently capable of literally anything, and can dodge bullets, like some kind of wizard. That was lame in Star Wars too. So the protagonist is unstoppable and if the situation ever becomes...effort, then the robot girl has a super cannon that can do anything. It really makes a nonsense of what little plot there is, because there is no tension at all and ultimately no point to anything. Also, 'beer makes me stronger' is so stupid. The whole thing is just a stupid mess.

But that is why a bunch of gnarly bounty hunters blast a basketball-size hole in him just as he emerges from the W.C. Philly shrugs as the dripping, gaping wound heals in seconds. A few seizure-edits later, the vintage boat that looks like an old retro-futuristic Cadillac that’s parked outside goes into Raging Bull mode, allowing Philly, SAM and Casey to escape. But not before SAM says, in clueless-C-3PO style, “These aggressions are inappropriate” smack in the middle of battle — and then, smack in the middle of the same battle, her mouth drops open to reveal a big cannon, prompting one of the bounty hunters to exclaim, “It’s a Cannon Buster!” (Source: decider.com)
