Found this at www.arcade-history.com



Does anyone know how to access this stage? Apparently, it's a level in which the Punisher must secure a hijacked airplane. Yet, I've played the game thousand of times and never got into this level (I did find the sprites for the hostages, but never thought much about them).

this page says it's a bonus stage of some kind, but it doesn't work properly. weird. Doesn't mention which emulator was used to access it though... anyone have a MAME cheat?

I know that the ending with the "bad guy parade" only occurs normally when you one-credit your way through the game.

I'm guessing the emulator must be MAME, since its only Arcade one with cheats that supports Punisher as far as I know.

Those females are used in the games intro. But not those particualar sprites. I just played the game thru also and didn't see anything about this level. It musta been a secret final level that wasn't finished. BTW, this game has 6 levels, not 5. The sixth llevel isn't called 6, just Final, but it is the 6th level.

Those are some fine quadruplets Punisher's got tied up there.

I know! I've seen the sprites before, as well as another female hostage (the prisoner from Stage 2 actually) and a male one (the bystander from Stage 1) while looking at the graphic data.

EDIT: I managed to unlock the stage using cheats for Final Burn. Like that site said, the stage ends only after a few seconds. Would've made a more interesting bonus round than the cliched "shoot the barrels" round they actually used.
