Heavy Barrel 068/365

This March of 1990 game is fantastic. It has a Contra feel, which are large shoes to fill but it’s there. The weapon options were better too…crazy I know.

Heavy Barrel is a shooter with a top-down view similar to Commando and Ikari Warriors. Terrorists have seized the underground control complex of a nuclear missile site. It is up to the player to infiltrate the installation and eliminate the leader of the terrorist army before they can launch the missiles. To stop the terrorists you will need the powerful weapon Heavy Barrel. The problem is that the weapon still is in the installation. Before the fortress fell the weapon was taken apart and locked in six different storage lockers. To defeat the terrorists you must collect all keys and reassemble the weapon. The game supports co-op for two players.”

Pick up your own copy here and don’t forget to check “Sold Items” before hitting up an auction.

I got nothing on a Heavy Barrel commercial so here’s the first NES one.
