Welcome to Retro Classix: Two Crude! ...or Crude Busters....or Two Crude Dudes!. Any of our old school gamers out there, has likely heard of this under one of those titles. This was a classic from the Arcade and Sega Genesis/Megadrive days. An old school multiplayer beat em up, where you go it alone or work with a friend to take down a crime syndicate in a post apocalytic world in 2040. 


This game in particular is based on the arcade version...so I can't stress enough how incredibly punishing this game is to play (they wanted you spending them quarters). The reason for the 2/10 Plat difficulty is two fold. 1. You're TECHNICALLY invincible, the game has a coin stystem where each coin = 1 Continue, but to insert a coin all you need to do is press r1.png. So while you have 3 lives per continue, you have infinite continues so you never REALLY die. and 2. While that would normally make it a 1/10, the game is still stupidly hard so it requires some work to get through. But since you won't see some kind of Game Over screen (unless you forget to reup your continues), it's more about soldiering on until the end then anything. 

Controls:
cross.png to Attack
square.png to Lift. Swing/Throw object
circle.png to Jump
dpad_down.png + circle.png to Roll
r1.png to Insert Coin

Step 1: Spend 20 and 150 Coins
This is simple enough, before you do anything, right at the start of the game before you can even play, you have to "Insert Coin". Otherwise, you'll just see the AI play. To do this, simply press r1.png. Once the game starts that'll coinsider you spending 1 Coin. Simply stand there and press r1.png 149 more times. The counter on the screen is going to max out at 99, just keep pressing r1.png and it'll pop when you hit 150.

Step 2: Play the Game until the end of Stage 3
Do note you don't HAVE to do this now, you can finish the game first then do it on your next playthough. But here's the thing, while you'll easily get the Welcome! trophy_bronze.png  trophy for playing for 5 minutes. The Dedication! trophy_bronze.png  and Superfan trophy_silver.png  trophies are technically glitched. They WILL NOT unlock at 30 minutes or an hour unless you're some kind of God at this game and make it an hour without dying. So a workaround to this is to make it to the end of Stage 3, a cargo Chopper will show up that see's you needing to beat the enemies then destroying the cargo hold, then normally you'd just take out the Chopper....instead, damage the front of the chopper just enough to get the gun to stop firing long range. Walk to the right of the screen and either hold the stick in that direction or rubber band your controller. The chopper can't hit you at this point and your movement will make the game think you're constantly playing and the 30 Minutes and 1 Hour trophies will pop this way. You can continue playing after this.

TIP: You can also use this time to get the Retro Buddies trophy_gold.png trophy, just do the same thing with a second controller...but that only took a couple minutes to pop for me.

Retro Buddies trophy_gold.png  (if you decide to do it here)

Step 3: Complete the rest of the game.
After doing the above, just complete the rest of the game. There are 6 stages that get increasingly more difficult as you go. Dying is inevitable here, you just need to use those continues up and just keep progressing as you revive. Now the game has a points system and one of the trophies is for hitting the top score of 1,000,000 Points. Doing this legit would be a nightmare, as every time you use a continue it resets your score. But don't worry, defeating the final boss nets you exactly 1,000,000 points, so this trophty isn't really missable. HOWEVER...there are reports after the credits roll and you need to enter your initials for your score, that if you attempt to put your initals in, the game kicks itself back to the title screen and starts over without giving you the trophies...so I suggest when you get to this point, just press cross.png quickly to get out. marking yourself as AAA. Besides, the game doesn't save your high score anyways...when you turn the game off and on agaiin your score is erased.

Step 4: Grab a second controller and bring in a second player.
If you didn't do this in Step 2, nows the time. There is no online component here so it's local couch MP, you will need a second controller for this. I did this in Step 2, but it literally only took like 2 minutes to pop the trophy. So not much time is needed.

Congrats on your 100% you Crude Dude!

8 trophies ( 3  )

  • Play for at least 5 minutes.

    Self explanitory, this trophy will pop right at the 5 minutes mark and will likely be the first trophy you get. 
  • You played for 30 minutes or more.

    Slightly Glitched

    This trophy is kind of glitched as it doesn't unlock when it's supposed to, but there is a workaround for it. See Superfan trophy_silver.png  for more details. 
  • You played over one hour!

    Slightly Glitched

    This trophy is kind of glitched as it doesn't unlock when it's supposed to, but there is a workaround for it:

    Make it to the end of Stage 3, a cargo Chopper will show up that see's you needing to beat the enemies then destroying the cargo hold, then normally you'd just take out the Chopper....instead, damage the front of the chopper just enough to get the gun to stop firing long range. Walk to the right of the screen and either hold the stick in that direction or rubber band your controller. The chopper can't hit you at this point and your movement will make the game think you're constantly playing and the 30 Minutes and 1 Hour trophies will pop this way. 

    NOTE: There's another cargo chopper in Stage 5 as well, you can do it there instead. 
  • You spent more than 20 coins.

    See Coin Wizard trophy_silver.png for more details.
  • You spent more than 150 coins.

    Since this is the Arcade version of the game, it has an obligitory "coin system", but inserting a coin in this game simply means pressing r1.png. Each coin acts as a contiue. In order to get this and Coin Operator trophy_bronze.png just press r1.png 150 times. The games on screen number will max out at 99, but if you just keep pressing r1.png until you hit 150, this will pop. 
  • Play for a while with a friend.

    There is no Online in this game so a second controller is a must. Simply play with 2 players until this pops. 

    I don't know if there's a specific time frame for this trophy, it only took about 2 minutes for me. But it could take longer for you. 
  • You made the high-score list.

    See Master trophy_gold.png for more details. 
  • You got the top score.

    The top score in this game is 1,000,000 points. But good luck doing that legit. Not only does using a Continue reset your score, the game is quite punishing throughout, so dying is going to happen. Luckily beating the final boss nets you exactly 1,000,000 points!

    After the credits roll, you'll get the high-score screen where you enter your initials. Don't bother actually doing so, the game doesn't save your score anyway, and there has been reports that trying to input your initials leads to the game kicking you back to the start without giving you your trophies. So, at this screen, just mash cross.png and both this and Apprentice trophy_silver.png  will pop.
