Two Crude Dudes
Description official description
After a nuclear explosion, New York needs rebuilding. This has barely started when the 'Big Valley' gang enters and takes full control themselves. The Government sends a pair of heavies known as the Crude Dudes in to clear them out.
As one of these Crude Dudes, you must travel through tough streets and take out Big Valley's people, destroying their vehicles and avoiding the force of their weaponry. Foes include werewolves, skeletons and hunchbacks. Gameplay is essentially Bad Dudes-style beat 'em up driven, with bosses on each level.

The levels are all filled with a great variety of villains and monsters, including bruisers, pyro-maniacs with flame-throwers, werewolves, blood-sucking hunchbacks, robotic skeletons and suchlike. The music is good, and the backgrounds, displaying varied wastelands and inner-city decay, are certainly atmospheric. The two-player mode is also great fun.
Er....not for the squeamish?
The Bottom Line
In the post-holocaust ruins of a city, a criminal organisation of heavies, mutants and robots appears and takes over. However, the decent people of this city are determined to rid their fair land. So two crime-fighting warriors are hired to make their way through the desolate landscape, taking out all the horrors who oppose them. It's up to you, as one of the warriors (or both of them, if you're playing the game with a friend) to battle through horizontally scrolling 2D levels of beat-em-up mayhem, each ending in an encounter with an extra-tough villain or giant mutation. Ultimately, you must face off against the scientist leading the secret organisation. On the way, you can collect energy-restoring power-ups from cola vending machines, and this is a sub-game after each level involving one such machine (if you've restored all your energy, smash it for a giant bonus). You can also pick up weapons such as pipes and metal posts, and you can throw barrels and even abandoned cars at the enemies.
