Bad Dudes is a platform beat-em-up based off the arcade game. You control a Blade or Striker, two incredibly bad dudes who must rescue the president from the dragon ninja. You fight your way through seven stages, beating up several different enemy ninjas. At the end of each stage there is a big boss to fight.

Bad Dudes has a pretty straight forward text table. The only real text is the intro and the ending. Space changes in different sections. The introduction uses 2C, the game over message uses 00, and the credits section uses D0. FF is used for the end of a line.
