Bad Dudes Help

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

So...I'm play Bad Dudes for the first time (NES port) and couldn't get anywhere.  I kept dying a LOT.  I watch a YouTube long play video to get any pointers and I'm seeing moves I have not been able to repeat.  It looks like the player is throwing some kind of charged punch.  How are they doing that?  Also, any tips that anyone can give I'd greatly appreciate it.  Thanks in advance.

I haven't played Bad Dudes yet, but does this list of moves from this FAQ help?

Special Moves

Pick Up Items
Controls: Hold down and press A while on top of the item
Description: If an item or weapon is on the ground, this is the only 
way that you can pick it up.  Extremely useful.

High Jump
Controls: Hold Up and press B
Description: Allows you to jump extraordinarily (or some would say 
ridiculously) high off the ground.  Use this to avoid certain enemies 
if necessary, or to jump up to a higher platform.

Low Jump
Controls: Hold Down and press B
Description: Allows you to jump down to a lower platform.  That's about 
all it's good for.

High Punch
Controls: Hold Down and press A
Description: This causes you to punch up above your head.  It's 
absolutely useless, or at least I haven't found a place where it comes 
in handy.  

Low Kick
Controls: Hold Down and press A
Description: Kicks low to the ground if an enemy is nearby.  If no 
enemy is around, you will simply punch air.  This move is critical when 
taking down the smaller enemies.  If you have a weapon, you will swing 
that weapon instead.  Note that swinging a weapon while kneeling is 
about twice as fast as swinging a weapon while standing up.

High Kick
Controls: Push A and B at once
Description: Jumps and high kicks.  This is not as effective as the 
Spin Kick (see below).

Spin Kick
Controls: Hold Left/Right and press A and B at once
Description: Causes you to leap forward a little bit and perform a very 
long and powerful kick that does a lot of damage to the enemy.

Flaming Punch
Controls: Hold A for several seconds to start flashing, then release A 
to punch.
Description: The awesomely powerful punch will down any regular enemy 
in a single hit.  It can even take down more than one ninja at a time 
if they are standing close to each other.  The only downside is that it 
takes awhile to charge it up.
