BAD DUDES VS DRAGON NINJA 1988

Data east

Games TM - - RETRO -

Data East’s ar­cade brawler proved very popular on re­lease. af­ter all, who wouldn’t want to res­cue pres­i­dent ron­nie and share a burger with him in the game’s hi­lar­i­ous clos­ing cred­its? in some ways Dragon Ninja feels like a step back for the genre as it lacks the multi-di­rec­tional move­ment of games like Dou­ble Dragon and has a rel­a­tively sim­plis­tic move set. There’s no deny­ing that it’s a lot of fun, though thanks to in­ven­tive lev­els (one stage takes place atop a mov­ing truck) a large num­ber of dif­fer­ent en­e­mies and some en­ter­tain­ing boss fights, which in­clude a cameo from Karnov, who ap­peared in his own game the previous year.
