P.O.W. – Prisoners Of War

Control a military prisoner who breaks free from his cell, and must fight through waves of incoming enemy combatants. Fight via close-quarters-combat, or shoot your enemies with weapons they have dropped in this side-scrolling beat ’em up originally released in 1988!


Pilot a 1930’s airplane, and fight against legions of dinosaurs and cavemen over a tropical island filled with mystery and danger! While collecting Speed Up & Power Up items, beware of the numerous traps that await you in this horizontal side-scrolling shooter released by SNK in 1989!
