At first, I was skeptical of this game, because it didn't seem to be of such a good quality. But once I figured it out, it was clear that there was a lot of depth and substance here. Cannon Fodder is a war action game in which you control four troops at a time through a handful of missions. You have a top-down view, and there are many different atmospheres to play in.

To move your guys around, just left click where you want them to go. To fire, click the right mouse button on your target. To throw grenades/shoot rockets, hold the right mouse button down on the target and click the left button. M shows the map, and P pauses.

To destroy buildings, it is best to shoot rockets or throw grenades if you have them. Sometimes, there will be a box of ammo by the building. Shoot at it to make an explosion, blowing the building up. As the game progresses, you will have to use a lot of strategy and be very careful. You will also get to drive in cars and other cool vehicles.
