Dynamite Dux (sometimes stylized as Dynamite Düx) is a two-player side-scrolling action game from Sega, originally released in the Arcades in 1989 and ported to various home systems. Sega released the game for their own system, the Sega Master System, in 1989 but only in Europe. Other versions would be released on European home computers like the Amiga and Atari ST. The game has a visual design reminiscent of US cartoons from the mid-20th century, such as Rocky & Bullwinkle and Woody Woodpecker, with exaggerated facial expressions and surreal silliness.
The player(s) proceeds across a series of stages, fighting unusual creatures and bosses via an assortment of ranged weapons and close combat. Ranged weapons tend to have limited uses and vanish after a while.
