Barrage is a rather destructive action game that puts you on a shooting range with the objective to hit as many dummy targets as possible within 3 minutes. You control a gun which may either fire small or large grenades at dummy soldiers, jeeps and tanks. The gameplay is simple but it is not that easy to get high scores.

See also /usr/share/doc/barrage/README for more information.
