P.O.W. - 20081999120000 by Shadow Lord
Game:P.O.W.Company:SNK
Type:FightingPlayers:1/2

You managed to smuggle some TNT into your cell... with sweat creeping down your brow, you light the fuse... in a few seconds you will be fighting for your life as you try to escape.. P.O.W. was a particularly hard brawler back when the platform beat-em-ups were just getting started with titles like Bad Dudes and Double Dragon. It has some very innovative features (like fighting on an elevator, eons before Streets of Rage!) and the first brawler at the time that I know of that you can actually fire a machine gun, whereas previous games you could only dodge bullets and not stoop to using a gun yourself.
P.O.W. is a real hair-puller, where a player with full life can be chopped to mincemeat by bad positioning or a grenade that flies from off-screen foes. The object of the game, of course, is to flee the enemy's camp, then the country. Of course, like all games like these, the entire army is deployed to kill a single escaping prisoner, so be happy you can now face this game with unlimited credits!!
