P.O.W. Prisoners of War™

There are many genres of arcade video games. These include fighting games, sports games, and classic platform games. Beat ‘em up (also known as brawler or fighting game) is a video game genre featuring fighting between the protagonist and a large number of enemies.

P.O.W. Prisoners of War™ is a side-scrolling beat ‘em up arcade game released in 1988. The objective of the game is very basic. The player controls a military prisoner who breaks free from his cell and must fight his way into the enemy’s main base in order to eliminate their leader and escape.

The Gameplay

The gameplay is pretty straightforward and easy. The player has to control a military prisoner, as mentioned before, and must fight against opponents to reach the enemy cell. There the player has to defeat the leader of the enemies and escape from their clutches. The objective is to escape from the enemy’s base by fighting through four stages filled with numerous soldiers trying to stop the player from escaping. The stages consist of a P.O.W. camp, a warehouse, a jungle, and the enemy’s base. Enemies include foot soldiers, commandos, and green berets.

Along with the usual actions (kicking, punching, and jumping), three special attacks can also be performed by pressing control buttons in a combination: a jump kick (jump and then kick), a back punch (jump and punch simultaneously), and a head butt (punch and kick simultaneously). The player can also pick up one of two weapons dropped by defeated enemies: a throwing knife and a machine gun.


There are huts and rooms where the player can obtain power-ups by defeating the enemies inside. The power-ups consist of a full life recovery, a brass knuckle that increases the player’s attack strength, and an armor that makes the player invulnerable to gunshots and knife throws.

Difficulty Levels

The game ends when the player loses all the lives.

Interface and Controls

Interface and controls are very easy. Just use the arrow keys to move the character and the control buttons to administer the moves.

P.O.W. Prisoners of War™ has all the elements of an engrossing fighting game and is still enjoyed by everyone who plays it.
