Late 80's coin-op side scroller

You played as a hobbit looking character (short, maybe with a brownish cloak) that could shoot fireballs. I think you could power up your fireballs by killing monsters and collecting from them. Fireballs were weak at first and wouldn't go very far. They drooped off in an arc like you were shooting fire tears. All I remember is the 1st stage and the last/final boss. First stage you started in a forest and you could hop up in some trees to get your droopy fireballs to go out in front of you further, possably killing skeletons or something as the first enemies you saw. Last stage/final boss was a dragon. You had to make your way strait down a long pit (or maybe you fell down it as a set up for final boss, can't remember). Dragon was on the right side of screen and you had to time running left and right and shooting to kill him. His fireballs were like a strait, long line of fire bricks (best i can describe it) he would shoot at you and might have been some fire or something on the ground you had to avoid, maybe why I remember left and right running. Played it at the local gas staition in the late 80's. Came out about the same time as R-type, and Gauntlet I think becouse I remember playing the crap out of them at the same place and time. Thanks for any help!

Re: Late 80's coin-op side scroller

Last boss is Mr. Wardner and he turns into this huge Demon thing. You are right about walking back and forth to avoid his fireballs while shooting him.

Good game.
