1-2 players(handheld versions 1 player only)

They all pretty much control the same, one button attacks/picks up weapons, the other jumps, combine the 2 for a jumping punch/slash(the latter being much more effective). How much of it remains a beat 'em up depends on the game, but realistically speaking, the arcade game and the Double Dragon crossover are the 2 major reasons for this thread. Most of these games veer off into other directions with vehicle/racing portions, rappelling sections, obstacle courses, shooting, even flat out platforming. In all, it's mostly a very challenging, general action series of games.

Farthest I've gotten in Battletoads was Stage 6. Like the AVGN video, I never liked the fact that just because 1 player loses all their lives despite the other player have lives left, the game goes to the continue screen. It should have been like in TMNT II and III where the continue screen doesn't show up until both players run out of lives. Someone might think that Battletoads was created as a slap in the face to people who were interested in anything that remotely resembled the Ninja Turtles. When the NES version was released in Japan, some parts of the game became easier in a way that makes them more boring, like the obstacle courses producing obstacles less frequently, and replacing all the blue ramps with more pink ramps. The Genesis version's difficulty is basically between the NES and Famicom versions, retaining the blue ramps, but slower obstacles, except the robots in Stage 9 still don't explode on contact.

Ragnarok's World is the Gameboy version of the first Battletoads game, the screenshot pictured is the Gameboy-exclusive Battletoads game. This and the arcade game are the ones where you don't fight Dark Queen, and Robo Manus is the final boss. This Speed Demos Archive page has details describing some of the strategies for dealing with waves of enemies and bosses, and also how the items work.

Here's an amazing Battletoads speedrun by our friend, The Mexican Runner:

I had the nerve to make my own Battletoads clone, as I wanted to create something out of a beat 'em up engine I made. It included replicas of Turbo Tunnel and Volkmire Inferno's obstacle courses, and you got to practice them in test drive mode. What I wanted was a more 2-player friendly Battletoads game.
