P.O.W. - Prisoners of War is a single-player port of the arcade military-themed brawler from SNK. It's notable for its optional areas that allow you to collect items and weapons, including guns with limited ammo. It's also very difficult for an NES beat 'em up.
This is the enemy headquarters. Your orders are to invade the enemy's camp as a prisoner and destroy their leaders.
This version adds bosses that aren't present in the arcade version.
Despite the title, in this version there is only one Prisoner of War.
P.O.W. is kinda lame. Its combat is fairly brain-dead, although it does have a cool gun you can use sometimes. The enemy variety is piss-poor, and the bosses aren't great either. The music and graphics are average, and the gameplay gets old well before the end. It's a competent game but nothing special. It is super hard at least.
