Video Game / Fire Barrel

Fire Barrel (also known as Air Assault) is a rather obscure vertical-scrolling Shoot 'Em Up made by Irem in 1993. The game bears many similarities to Raiden, such as weapon types and the overall feel of it. Though it barely resembles it, the game is meant to be a sequel of sort to Air Duel.

Otherwise, it's a somewhat okay-to good game with Awesome Music.


  • Homing Projectile: The Homing Missile weapon, which homes in on enemies but does less damage than the dumbfire Megaton Missile weapon.
  • Spread Shot: Two kinds: The Wing Gun and Grenade. The Wing Gun shoots up to seven crescent projectiles forwards, while the Grenade shoots rockets forwards, to the sides, and to the rear of the player.

Alternative Title(s): Air Assault
