    Double Dragon's review

    Published: 2012-09-26, by Peter Warrior.

    Ported version of the classic beat'em-up

    • Great port of a classic
    • Amount of additional characters
    • Controls and timing should be improved

    "Billy and Jimmy are back 25 years later"

    Once upon a time, there was not only a Double Dragon arcade machine, but also multiple sequels, both official and bootleg and even a film starred by Mark da Cascos. Double Dragon also inspired a new era in scrolling fighting games and some scenes, as the end of the first stage battle against a clone of B.A.Baracus or the end of the game, when you fight against that machine gun dude, have deeply sunk into gamers' collective consciousness.

    Since it was obvious that such a goldmine as DDragon would land on Android sooner than later, the question was if it was a crude port or if it will add something or improve anything. Fortunately, the correct answer is the former, though it's nothing to write home about.

    This game updates graphics, animations and sounds from the original game, making it more similar to some console ports. There are also some dialogues and a kinky intro. Moves seem a little bit more varied than the original game, though I'm not sure at all (where did the elbow smashes go?). Likewise, I might say that this version is shorter than the arcade's.

    The best part is the vile amount of additional characters. There are around twenty, every one with an odder background than the former. Anyway, here's Double Dragon for Android. It may be alike Double Dragon for Game Boy Advance. It's fun, it's retro and it can bring you back to Big Trouble in Little China times.

    This, along with Espgaluda and DoDonpatchi, all fail to run on new devices. I've wasted my money on not 1,not 2 but 3 games with this company. Cave needs to be investigated for simply ignoring there customers. Not happy!

    Got a new phone and when i try opening the app i get an error. What is going on i paid for this app and cant use the app i brought. I got no reply also from the developer, this is unfair the app is broken and he is selling it. An update is required not to authenticate to his server. The app should load straight away if he has shutdown his authenication server.
