Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja

I just played this cool and awesome game, but am I a bad enough dude to review this game? One does not simply review this game; you got to experience it for yourself. Data East’s Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja, released in the radical age of 1988, the president Ronnie got kidnapped by Ninjas, but are you a good enough dude to smoke pot and relax while the country is thrown into chaos? NOOOOOOO! You’re bad and you’re going to save the president.

Go around the country, punching and kicking ninjas, charge up your QI and let loose your inner energy on those evil ninjas, collect knives and nunchucks to take the ninjas down. Battle tough bosses that take more coins from you than a banker does to poor people.

Wow…that’s it really, how can I sell this to anyone. I mean I had fun with it but for some it maybe repetitive. The gameplay is good but the level design and graphics are kind of muddy and drab.

I mean all that happens in at the end is that you rescue the president and treats you to a burger. The most American way to end a game ever! But when you think about it, whilst it’s remained a classic, it’s mostly a ‘eh’ game since there’s not much to talk about. Heck, even a sequel was in the works…released in 2012, and with the help of Kickstarter it failed to be funded.

Overall, it’s an ok game and it’s a classic, but the only reason why anyone would remember this is the memes…oh the memes.

You can get it on the Arcade, Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Apple II, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, NES, ZX Spectrum and Zeebo.

Rating: 3/5

UPDATE: I made this review ages ago but it’s just filler at this point and I’ve gotten better by now. But quality stuff will return next week.
