Game Description:  

Released as a coin-operated arcade game in 1996, Cannon Dancer has become an absolute legend in arcade history, with fans still looking for ways to play this beloved title once again. Now, the game is making a triumphant return.
Cannon Dancer (also known as Osman) is a classic action jump & run adventure with a Persian-Arabian flair. Control the Cannon Dancer Kirin, an acrobatic, highly skilled martial arts fighter, and fight your way through several stages while defeating enemy forces. 
The world is controlled by a single federal government. Without warning, a new threat appears: Abdullah the Slaver, a female sorceress. Abdullah’s goal is to control the world and to cause panic and terror. The fear of her leads to abandonment of all economic activities and a corrupt government. Help Kirin rescue society and defeat Abdullah the Slaver but watch out for other betrayals.


Cannon Dancer (also known as Osman) is a classic action jump & run game where you need to collect different power-ups by destroying containers with the letter ‘P‘. In addition to the power-ups, Kirin has three special attacks per life which will destroy all on-screen enemies.

Why Cannon Dancer (Osman) is joining the SLG catalog:

The Legend, the Myth it is Cannon Dancer!    
At Strictly Limited we are eager to look for hidden gems and we do not hide, that we love action games, especially those, who formed an entire genre. In the legacy of legendary titles like Strider, we were able to get the one and only Cannon Dancer, known as Osman in the West, to become a part of our portfolio.   
It is one of the few action games which formed this genre and became a legend in arcade history by feeling ‘in your face’ while playing:   
The Cannon Dancer goes from one to hundred when pushing the start button. The bright colours , the setting, the loud music, the personal history behind the game and the action from the beginning all add to the games special flair. 

 The small quantity of this version made this beloved game an absolute legend in arcade history. It only released in arcades in Japan and the US and even in these countries the number of available arcades was so low, that almost no one got their hands on the game.  
Even now, you will still find people who are searching for one of these rare retro arcade machines, you will find fans who are still doing Fanart of the TEKI (Kirin and the Sub bosses) and you will find gamers who will pay thousands of Dollars to buy a circuit board for their Arcade at home. Released in 1996, Cannon Dancer is an Arcade classic, and this is the reason, why Cannon Dancer belongs to the SLG family.
