Dynamite Cop, known as Dynamite Deka 2 (ダイナマイト刑事2) in Japan, is a beat-'em-up game created by Sega AM1. It was released for all three versions of the Sega Model 2 arcade hardware in 1998 (the only game to run on all Model 2 boards) before subsequently being ported to the Sega Dreamcast the following year. It is a sequel to Die Hard Arcade (Dynamite Deka in Japan), though unlike its predecessor, lacks the Die Hard film license. It was soon followed up by Asian Dynamite.

Gameplay

Dynamite Cop is largely the same game as Die Hard Arcade, however instead of taking over a skyscraper, Wolf Hongo and his group of "modern day pirates" hijack a cruise liner and three protagonists are tasked with saving the president's daughter. Bruno Delinger returns but Cindy Holiday does not (in standard versions of the game at least), instead being replaced by two new characters, Jean Ivy and Eddie Brown, each with slightly different movesets to Bruno.

Primarily the biggest change in Dynamite Cop is the ability to face and attack in eight directions as opposed to only two. It is also less realistic than its predecessor, and the superior technical specifications of the Model 2 (and Dreamcast) hardware lead to higher quality graphics and sound.

Similar to Deep Scan's relationship with Die Hard Arcade, the Dreamcast version of Dynamite Cop includes the 1980 arcade game Tranquillizer Gun which can be used to give the player extra credits. The Dreamcast version can also be upgraded to "version 1.1" using a special save file, unlocking Cindy Holiday from the first game as a playable character.

History

Legacy

Coolnet Entertainment planned to work with Sega to produce an Xbox port of the game (with extra characters)[14], but the port did not materialise.
