Game Introduction

A two player simultanious version of Dynamite Duke. This game combines elements of Punch-Out!! and Cabal and also borrows from scrolling first-person shoot-em-ups like Operation Wolf. The Double Dynamites is an intense game from start to finish. You can continue as many times as you like, but checkpoints prevent casual players from winning this game just by feeding it a stream of quarters.

Game Play

Most of the enemies can be shot before they fire at you. When overwelmed by enemies, press and hold the Punch button to charge up for a "Dynamite Punch" which damages every on-screen foe. While crouching, both Dukes can move from side to side very quickly in order to dodge bullets. Background objects can be shot to collect power-ups. In hand-to-hand combat, moving the joystick from down to up before attacking with a kick or punch causes both Dukes to do a more powerful jumping kick or uppercut, respectively.
