The Punisher is a 1990 video game developed by Beam Software and released by LJN, which stars the Marvel Comics anti-hero, the Punisher. It is one of the few NES rail shooters.

In the same year (1990) there was also The Punisher computer game for Amiga and DOS systems, unrelated to this one and released by MicroProse.



The player controls the Punisher character from an over-the-shoulder third-person perspective through various New York City locations, shooting thugs and battling supervillains as bosses. The final boss is the Kingpin, almost impossible to defeat without the aid of autofire-equipped remote.

Game Boy port

In 1991 the game was ported to the Game Boy. The Game Boy version, titled Punisher: The Ultimate Payback, featured a cameo appearance of Spider Man, while the final boss was Jigsaw (changed from the Kingpin in the NES version).
