Arcade archives: The Punisher

Capcom’s slew of Arcade brawlers during the late 80s and early 90s featured 2 comic book licences; Cadillacs and Dinosaurs and Marvel’s gun toting anti-hero, The Punisher (Capcom). The Punisher was released in 1993 and featured the titular character battling against hordes of the Kingpin’s henchmen alongside Nick Fury, if a second player decided to join in with the action.

The Punisher features tight controls, varied enemies, revolutionary movement options (for the genre) and entertaining firearms use implementation. It’s certainly one of the best titles in the beat ‘em up genre and comes highly recommended.
