Viewed from a top-down perspective, Heavy Barrel is strikingly similar to Ikari Warriors in that you control the direction of your weapon with a rotating joystick that also moves you. Two buttons control your weaponry, one for your main gun, and a second for your grenade weapons. Inside the fortress, there are many items which you can collect to assist you in your task. Locked boxes are scattered about that contain powerful weapons including heavy machine guns, spread guns, flame throwers and the Heavy Barrel, a super-powerful gun made of six component pieces which you must collect separately. The Heavy Barrel does not have an ammunition limit, but it only lasts for a short period of time. Grenade weapons include standard grenades, large red grenades and sweeping flails. Players must pick up keys to open the locked boxes.
Your enemies are numerous and varied. In addition to your garden variety soldiers, you must also deal with machine gun nests, tanks, helicopters, flying soldiers and other assorted attacks. At the end of each level, there is a boss you must defeat as well as a final boss at the end of the game. ~ Michael Schwartz/Joan Dykman, All Game Guide
