Dudes with Attitude was a third-party puzzle game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1990 by American Video Entertainment.

The puzzles in Dudes with Attitude require the player to make their 'Dude' or 'Dudette' a certain color by having them move across a paint can. After turning a certain color, they can hit treasures of that same color. The object in each puzzle is to retrieve all the treasures in a room without their 'Dude' or 'Dudette' falling prey to the various enemies in rooms, or running out of time.

Manual's descriptionEdit

"These Dudes are on the move: Dude, Happy, Patch, Bozo and lets not forget Babe and Foxy. They are somewhere in the Caribbean exploring lush lost islands and finding a King's ransom in lost treasure. Bounce with them through a radical adventure. If you hang around long enough you'll meet slithering SERPENT SENTRIES and the dreaded GUMSPLATS. There are many strange creatures that roam the underworld of these forgotten islands. You may escape the hounding JAWS only to fall victim to the beautiful and deadly twirling STAR-A-LIZER. As in any adventure, your worst enemy is your own attitude. You'll get emeralds, sapphires and gold. But don't cop an attitude, or you'll never win the game. You can choose to be any one of the DUDES or DUDETTES. Patch is the oldest at 18 and is the leader of the posse. He's cool, sly and sometimes sinister. He also knows the islands like the back of his hand. BABE and FOXY are the girls of the group, and although BABE is a bit of an airhead, FOXY has an IQ higher than a coconut tree. Dude, at 14, is way cool cause whatever he touches seems to slide into place like clockwork. His best friend Happy is smart, energetic and the crew's prankster. Bozo is not too bright. In fact he's pretty dumb. But his unbelievable good luck more than makes up for his stupidity."

Trolls on Treasure IslandEdit

The game was given sequel treatment in the form of Trolls on Treasure Island in 1994. Instead of "dudes," this version features trolls, which were a reemerging fad in the early 1990s. While the game features the same engine as the original, the level designs are completely new.
