Cannon Spike is a game much like expendable except it has Capcom 
characters in it!  It's pretty easy to learn so I expect you to know 
the buttons already.  (It took me 5 minutes to learn them)  Just in 
case you don't know the buttons though, here's the DEFAULT setting:

Y: Heavy Attack
X: Heavy Shot
A: Weak Shot
B: Weak Attack
LT: Special Attack
RT: Target

Note that the weak shot and weak attack can usually be comboed. 

SHIBA SHINTARO********************************************************

Story: Shiba got involved in the terrorists' conflict and became their 
target right before he won the World Championship Skateboarding Title. 
He's probably the most well rounded next to Charlie, use him as a 
beginner's choice.  He really shines at close range though.

Transportation: Skateboard

Strength: 6
Speed: 6
Stamina: 5
Attacks: 7
Fun Factor: 7

Heavy Shot: Cyclone Ball
This has very short range, but powerful.  Get in a large group of 
enemies and use it, it will most likely kill one of the enemies.

Heavy Attack: 1080 Turn
This Attack is very hard to hit with, but very strong. It has the 
potential to take half a Boss' life if the whole combo hits.  Don't use 
it too often though, since he is left wide open for a long period of 

Special Attack: Homing Akaby
Great Special.  Decent damage, and never misses.  Goes great if comboed 
with any of his other attacks.


Story: Charlie came from the U.S. Army to assist Cammy on a secret 
mission.  He's from the Street Fighter series and one of the best 
fighters in the game.  He is one of the best in both close range and 
long range.  Quick and powerful attacks are his specialty.

Age: 28
Sex: Male
Weapon: MARS Command Carbine
Transportation: Rollerblades

Strength: 8
Speed: 7
Stamina: 7
Attacks: 7
Fun Factor: 6

Heavy Shot: Piercing Cannon
Goes through EVERYTHING.  Use it against large bosses, and it wont stop 
damaging them until it goes through it.  Damages like hell.

Heavy Attack: Somersault Kick
Very strong against bosses, except it leaves him wide open for a couple 
of seconds.  Don't do it unless the enemy is dying.

Special Attack: Sonic Barrage
Pretty weak for a Special, but it has long range.  I wouldn't suggest 
using this too much…

King Arthur***************************************************

Story:  He was sent to assist, or more so protect Simone.  He's the 
strongest character in the game, being able to destroy most enemies 
with a slash of his sword.

Age: 32
Sex: Male
Weapon: Gunlance "Excalibur"
Transportation: Walking

Strength: 10
Speed: 3
Stamina: 8
Attacks: 6
Fun Factor: 5

Heavy Shot: Arthur Missile
Launches about 10 missiles.  All of which have moderate homing.  Not 
too powerful for the strongest character in the game.

Heavy Attack: Arthur Rush
Very strong.  It could kill some bosses with one hit, and can kill a 
crowd of enemies.

Special Attack: Arthur Beam
This practically crap compared to the other specials.  It's moderately 
strong, but hard to hit with.  He does have stronger and better 

Cammy White**********************************************************

Story: Cammy is soldier from a crime organization in Shadaloo.  She had 
recently been having trouble completing her missions so Charlie was 
sent to help her.  She's one of the weakest but she's also the fastest 
and most agile of the characters.  Her attacks may seem weak, but the 
have great priority and cover area, making her one of the best in 
killing a crowd of enemies.

Age: 21
Sex: Female
Weapon: ZZ01 Mantis and Caesar SNG
Transportation: Rollerblades

Strength: 6
Speed: 10
Stamina: 6
Attacks: 8
Fun Factor: 7

Heavy Shot: Riot Smasher
It has great range and moderate power.  Use it occasionally and point 
properly.  It leaves her open for a second or two.  Can usually hit 
multiple targets.

Heavy Attack: Cannon Spike
Cammy performs a somersault and screams "Cannon Spike!"  Don't use it 
too often since it leaves her open for a long time.  It's her strongest 
move though…

Special Attack: Chain Grenade
It covers a wide area but it doesn't go far.  Weak for a special, only 
use it if you need to be "Invincible" for a short amount of time.


Story: Works with Arthur to complete a mission.  She is part cyborg and 
has superhuman strength.  Simone is probably the weakest when fighting 
a crowd of enemies from afar.  All her long range attacks go in a 
straight line, but her close range attacks cover large areas.   

Age: 25
Sex: Female
Weapon: C&P MPV and a Samurai Sword
Transportation: Rollerblades

Strength: 7
Speed: 9
Stamina: 5
Attacks: 6
Fun Factor: 6

Heavy Shot: Samurai Laser
Goes in a straight line, its powerful but it covers little area.

Heavy Attack: Samurai Slash
Very strong attack.  It can hit all enemies around her and it doesn't 
leave her open that much.

Special Attack: Samurai Sword
Again, it goes in a straight line but is VERY powerful.  It can take 
half of most bosses health.

Baby Bonnie Hood*************************************************

Story: A human with a dark soul.  She may be innocent looking, but she 
is destined to be a great monster hunter.  BB Hood was not meant to be 
played offensively, but defensively.  Her Cheer of Fire can be done 
while walking making it perfect for going around bosses.  Her Apple for 
You is weak in power but it pushes enemies away.  She's also a decent 
hit and run character.

Age: 12
Sex: Female
Weapon: S32 Impact
Transportation: Scooter

Strength: 7
Speed: 7
Stamina: 6
Attacks: 7
Fun Factor: 10

Heavy Shot: Cheer of Fire
It has short range but she can move while she's attacking. It has 
moderate attack power.

Heavy Attack: Apple for You
Perfect hit and run attack, she drops an apple and explodes on impact.  
It has weak power but usually pushes the enemy away.

Special Attack: Bazooka Paradise
One of the best specials.  You can move while she fires two sets of 
bazookas.  It doesn't leave her open and it has great attack power.

Mega Man*********************************************************

Story:  A robot created by the infamous Dr. Light.  Although he is only 
a machine, he carries the heavy burden of making the world a more 
harmonious place for humans and robots alike.  Mega Man is the weakest 
defensively, but a strong offensive attacker.  He's the perfect Hit and 
Run character.

Age: 7
Sex: Male
Weapon: Mega Buster
Transportation: Hover Shoes

Strength: 6
Speed: 9
Stamina: 3
Attacks: 7
Fun Factor: 9

Heavy Shot: Super Mega Buster
Average attack with moderate attack, range, and coverage.  Use it 

Heavy Attack: Tornado Hold
Short range, but it hits all enemies and usually stops them or even 
kills them!

Special Attack: Rock N' Roll
One of the best Special Attacks.  Mega Man turns into an indestructable 
ball for you to control.  You can either run away protected, or damage 
an opponent severely.

Special Thanks to my Mom for buying this game for me. ;)
