Description

In Bad Street Brawler, players take the role of the former punk rocker and current martial artist Duke Dunnegan, or aternatively the wrestler Gorgeous George (Bop N' Wrestle) or as a high school teacher pushed to far (Street Hassle) who finds he is the only one in the position to clean the mean streets from various thugs and loonies.

Gameplay involves walking through the streets and taking out any enemies that get in the way. Kicks and punches are your basic moves at first, but as the game progresses, new moves and attacks become available, and new enemy types to beat up as well.

Trivia

Amiga

Unlike the other versions, the Amiga version was not an official release by Beam Software & Melbourne House. It was instead made by the Polish company World Software, whose developers enjoyed Bad Street Brawler so much they decided to make their own version for the Amiga using, among others, sprites ripped from the ZX spectrum version.

NES version

In the NES version, some enemy sprites are changed: the blind man was changed to a thug, grandma is now a small Italian, the basketball player is white and the skull on a bomb was removed.

Power Glove

Bad Street Brawler was along with Super Glove Ball the only games designed to showcase the Power Glove that were released. Two other additional titles were scrapped.

Sprites

Bad Street Brawler uses sprites that are doubled in height and width before being displayed. This results in big sprites, but they look blocky.

Stages

After stage 10 Bad Street Brawler goes into infinite repeat mode; stage 11 is the same as stage 6. However even the stages 6 to 10 are nothing more but rehashes of the stages 1 to 5 with more & tougher enemies.
