Description: You’ve spent the night cavorting at the Pistolrock saloon only to come out and see that Jeopardy James has sent his army of barrel goons onto you. Defend yourself and use what you can find around you to fight through the waves of barrels as fast as you can.
BarrelsUp is a western style catapult shooter built for the HTC Vive & Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets. Use your trusty slingshot, supply of tomatoes and dynamite to defeat the incoming waves of barrels.
Review: Barrels Up is a fun cartoon style wave shooter in which you will be shooting waves of barrels rolling towards you. Some will be slow, others will feel like they have been fired out of a cannon. You get access to a slingshot and even some dynamite but there are also some power-ups that you get from shooting the signs. With a nice wild-west look this game does keep things fun, but it will get boring rather quickly. It’s definitely worth the £1.69 asking price, but there is nothing here that will blow your mind.
