Dynamite Duke (ダイナマイトデューク) is a 1989 arcade action game by Seibu Kaihatsu. Sega acquired a license to port it to the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Master System, releasing them in 1990 and 1991, respectively. Game follows mercenary Duke "Dynamite" Fredericks as he attempts to bring down Dr. Neil Ashe, a mad scientist who is trying to take over the world by using robots. Duke's right arm is cybernetic and appearently (according to the manual anyway) ten times more powerful than a normal human.
Japanese cover of the Mega Drive version has a character who looks strangely like Dolph Lundgren, an actor who become famous (somewhat famous) after playing the Russian boxer Ivan Drago in the movie Rocky 4.
The game plays like a lightgun game — you are Duke, positioned immediately in front of the screen, and your goal is to go around killing everything in sight. The D-pad moves your target crosshair (moving Duke in the process) and / shoots (there is no rapidfire). You can also melee nearby enemies — / punches and (no SMS equivalent) kicks. Should a powerup appear, simply shoot at it to take it. Duke laso has a special weapon called "Dynamite Punch" which is used by holding down the punch button and releasing it after Duke starts to glow. This causes massive damage to all enemies but can be used a few times in each level.
Each level has a boss fight in which player must defeat a boss character in close combat.
Master System version has less levels than Arcade, Mega Drive counterpart.
