Far into the future, the fate of New York is quite grim. Nuclear radiation has leaked out, wiping out a majority of the city. The charred remains of the metropolis is mostly made up of self-serving gangs and disgusting mutants of magnificent proportions!

Unfortunately, one of the gangs has acquired the assistance of a great scientific mind to help the members in their evil endeavors. This being has also managed to evolutionize the mutants and mechanical terrors that haunt the city streets.

Being the all-around good Samaritan dudes who you are, you must use your brutal strength to hack your way through. Even a friend can join in!

Game Reviews

Even with its title of "Crime Capital" New York still pulls the tourists in. But when a series of nuclear explosions level the Big Apple in the year 2010, few folks feel like visiting, much less moving there! It takes the Peace Corps Task Force 10 years to reconstruct the once proud city. Their efforts, however, go for naught when an evil-minded organization of bandits, Big Valley, moves in and starts trashing the town all over again!

The government won't sit still while their rebuilt metropolis is being crushed a second time. They have no choice but to call in the most skilled, ruthless mercenaries around -- the Two Crude Dudes! Enter you and a friend.

Two New!

Yup, Two Crude Dudes for the Genesis is a double-player, eight-megabit, fist fighting extravaganza! Experienced arcade coin-poppers who played Data East's two arcade versions (Bad Dudes or Two Crude) will love Genesis Two Crude's kick-and-punch action. You also get five stages of side-view, slug-n-slam street fighting. In fact, the game is nearly identical to its arcade predecessors, except the Dudes lose a few of their "too" crude features, like belching.

Get Bad, Dudes

Your properly pumped-up individuals, Biff and Spike, are shade-wearing, studly, street heroes with attitude. They know all the basic hand-to-hand assaults, but the most potent and useful is the grab-n- throw. You can toss signs, cans, cars, small tanks, enemy fighters, and even your partner! Not only are Biff and Spike lean and mean, they're also well-dressed for street punks. No wimpy 8-pixel-tall sprites here! All the characters are oversized, graphic health hazards.

Roadkill War Zones

The Dudes show off their buffed bods when they clear a level, but there's no room for posers when you're crime-busting in Two Crude. This game's a riot straight from the get-go! As you progress into devastated, mutated New York, you'll pile drive Punks, flame-spitting Pyomaniacs, Rabid Dogs, Snipers, and a slew of cyborgs. Ugly faces deserve beautiful backgrounds, and you'll get plenty of those in the sewers, warehouses, snowy alleys, and subways.

ProTips:

  • You can take out entire gangs of enemies with a single, flying jump kick!
  • Try a leap-n-grab attack to ground this thug airlift.
  • To defeat a Pyromaniac, use a jump kick. Then retreat to a safe area of the screen while he fires his flame gun. Now move in and do it again.
  • Trap Santa Bomb Claus on the ledge above you. Then rock him with a few fists. You'll be safe from his explosive "gifts".

Killin' for a Livin'

Data East gets a double-fist high-five for Two Crude. Biff and Spike have the fight game down cold with sweet visuals, great rockin' tunes, and controllable, intuitive gameplay. Whether you're a novice or a veteran street-beater, you'll be into the Dudes 'cause you can choose your difficulty setting. Remember the bigger they come, the harder they fall!

You wanna know who's bad?? The Bad Dudes, that's who! They're back from the coin-op and the NES, sort of, in Two Crude Dudes for the Genesis. Although it isn't specifically a sequel, Data East's latest 16-bit kick-and-slugfest is basically a revamped Bad Dudes, but with tons of new enemies, graphics, street-poundin' sounds, and all sorts of moves. You can grab-n-throw enemies, street signs, cars, and even your partner in crime-fighting. Play it, live it, be CRUDE!

As said, Two Crude Dudes also know as Crude Busters - all non-American markets.
