Prisoners of War (P.O.W), also called as Datsugoku in Japan, is a side-scrolling beat’em up game produced by SNK originally released as an arcade game in 1988. 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. Fight your way out of a P.O.W. camp, picking up weapons along the way. A variety of enemies, including end bosses, stand in your way. One of SNK’s many war-inspired games.

The arcade version of Prisoners of War can be played by up to two players simultaneously. Player 1 controls a prisoner dressed in blue named Snake, while Player 2 controls one in red named Bart. The objective is to escape from the enemy’s base by fighting their way through four stages filled with numerous soldiers trying to impede the player’s escape.

The stages consist of a POW camp, a warehouse, a jungle, and the enemy’s base. Enemies includes foot soldiers, commandos, and green berets.
The controls consists of an eight-way joystick for moving the character and three action buttons for punching, kicking, and jumping.

There are also three special attacks performed by pressing two buttons in combination: a jump kick (jump, and then kick), a back punch (jump and punch simultaneously), and a headbutt (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. When wielding the machine gun, the player can fire it by pressing the kick button or conserve its ammo by pressing the punch button to gun whip enemies.
