The Game:
The Punisher was programmed by Capcom and released as an arcade game in 1993. On the original arcade machines you can actually enjoy a gread side scrolling Beat'em up experience. You play Nick Fury and your task is to end Kingpin's sovereignity. To help you out, you can find quite a huge arsenal of weapons: a baseball bat, a hammer, Japanese swords, knives, shuriken, and even improvised weapons such as flame throwers. In 1994 the game in the USA was released for the Sega Genesis and in 1995 the game was released in Europe for the Mega Drive. Due to the inferior hardware, many of the destructible items in the background are now indestructible (see comparison of the images: the car can only be destroyed in the arcade version. After you destroyed it you see a charred corpse on the driver's seat). Thankfully enough, the gameplay of the Genesis/Mega Drive version was not altered and is equal to the arcade version.
Ninja Girls:
The female ninjas wear less in the arcade version.

After you defeated the first level's boss you ask him about Kingpin. When the boss refuses to give you some information, the Punisher shoots him in the original version. In the Genesis version he just tosses him to the side.

Bone Breaker:
The third level's boss only in the arcade ersion shoots with his vehicle. In the Genesis version it just crashes into you.

The final boss only in the arcade version is "allowed" to smoke a cigar.
