The presidential candidate's daughter has been kidnapped! It is your job to get past enemy lines and rescue her. This is the third game in the Ikari Warriors series, and features similar arcade/action gameplay. The screen is a top down view which scrolls vertically, with numerous bad guys to defeat. You start the game with just your fists, and as the levels progress you can find weapons and other objects to help you out.

Whereas the original Ikari Warriors games featured machine-guns as standard weaponry, the third in the series introduced hand-to-hand combat. In fact, the entire first level is hand-to-hand, with only the "boss fight" sequence using a rifle.
