Victory Road

The original arcade game had an 8-way rotary joystick that allowed the player to rotate the onscreen character while moving in another direction. 
It includes character and boss voiceovers. 
NES screencap.
The NES version adds "zeny" as currency to buy better weapons and armor. The NES version emulates the arcade controls by locking the character's face when "fire" is pressed. Ammunition is unlimited. When a player dies, his flamethrower becomes a machine gun. 
Powerups are hidden under rocks that can be destroyed by the bazooka or grenades. 
This game has no vehicles, but armour lets players take a limited number of hits without timeout. 
The game reuses its predecessor's single-stage design but adds boss-fighting mini-stages.
