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. Written by Shawn Watson

Keep in mind that many versions of Gibberish are slightly different. You may need to learn a new "gibberish dialect" if you want to communicate with some folks. A common variation uses "thg", "diggadee", "ithica", "dither" or "ither" instead of "Edgar". In some versions, for words that start with vowels: A becomes "adiga", E becomes "edige", I is "idigi", and U is "udigu" In Northern England, a popular variation on Edgar is Amiga, thus making "dog" into "divigog" and so forth. Another variation is to place the letters "uthug" before each vowel. For example, "hello" would be "huthegelluthego". Another variation is to place the letters "ib" before each vowel. For example, "hello" would be "hibellibo". "Egg-Language" is another variation except put the word "egg" into every syllable. Take a hike = T(egg)Jake (egg)a H(egg)Mike. Just remember to pronounce every broken syllable as you would normally say it, and not as I spelled it. Example "head" = is pronounced "h(egg)ed" Another is "Pig Latin," in which you take the the first letter of the word and put it on the end, then add an "ay" after that. So now "food" would become edify. Or "Dog" would be okay. Other languages can also be turned to Gibberish. Swahili is a good example because most words don't have compound consonants. The added letters are "~rg~". Asking for a glass of water in normal Swahili is "Nataka Maui". In gibberish Swahili it becomes "Natargaka Margaux". You can try a similar technique in other languages. One common version is to add "itherg" after the first letter of each consonant. Example: Bottle becomes . For a syllable starting with a vowel, replace the "i" in "itherg" with the vowel.
