Punisher, The is a side-scrolling beat’em up video game developed by Sculptured Software and published by Capcom for the Sega Genesis Mega Drive on December 1994. The main character of the story is Frank Castle, who is also known as “The Punisher”. Castle is a Vietnam War veteran who has turned to vigilante justice against crime with his own personal war against evil. He uses his skills to seek revenge against gangs and drug dealers in New York City.

The goal of the game is to defeat all eight of the Kingpin's henchmen across five different levels including Hell's Kitchen and Brooklyn. During each level, The Punisher will travel through different pathways on foot or by vehicle and must fight an overwhelming number of street thugs on each route before facing one of the Kingpin's henchmen at the stage's ending. In addition, he must collect weapons like shotguns and machine guns hidden in briefcases or crates; along with items such as pizza slices that restore health points. Enemies have their own powerful weaponry ranging from firearms to Molotov cocktails; making them very dangerous opponents during battle sequences in some cases it may be necessary to use stealth to elude enemies instead of going head-on with them in melee combat.

Throughout the adventure Frank gains new abilities such as increased range or damage in ranged weapons by leveling up or receiving power-ups from defeated enemies in order to make his journey less challenging. Likewise there are special items which allow him to summon super powers like invincibility, jumping high into the sky or even fire a stream of flame for a short period of time.
