About The Game

Crude Buster is an arcade video game.

In the near future, ruthless gangs are the new rulers of the streets. Only a brave duo of seasoned street brawlers can end this terror and return peace to the streets. Don't forget to grab and use anything you can find as a weapon (pipes, stones, signs, cars, even enemies!) to survive this onslaught. Features solid graphics & sound and very fun gameplay mechanics!


Released in March 1990.

This game is known in US as "Two Crude".

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Crude Buster, Midnight Resistance - PCCB-00039) on 21/08/1990.
