The Punisher: The Ultimate Payback! (1991)

The Punisher: The Ultimate Payback! released in 1991 by Acclaim Entertainment is the Game Boy version of the 1990 NES console game The Punisher about the Marvel comics vigilante Frank Castle, also known as the Punisher. It contains several changes from the original. It features cameo appearances of Spider-Man in the first level rescuing hostages and the final boss was switched from Kingpin to Jigsaw.

Just like the NES version The Punisher’s origin has been slightly altered from that of the comic books, in the games he is a former police detective instead of a US Marine. The game follows Frank Castle after the death of his wife and children at the hands of the mafia after which he decided to become a vigilante who hunts down and kills every criminal he believes deserves it.

The game begins with Spider-Man telling The Punisher that a drug lord is hiding in a mall and that he has to get him. With Frank Castle shooting villains while protecting the innocent. Spider-Man appears between the action to offer advice on how to beat upcoming levels and swings in to rescue hostages once their captors have been shot.

At the end of the game when Jigsaw realises that The Punisher is going to kill him. Castle says, “Penance is good for the soul, but punishment is good for the guilty.
