Double Dragon screenshots:
Set in a post-apocalyptic New York, Double Dragon is the story Billy and Jimmy Lee, twin brothers trained in the fighting style of Sou-Setsu-Ken. Together, they managed a small martial arts training school, teaching their students to self-defense. One day, Billy's girlfriend, Marian, is kidnapped off the street by the Black Warriors, a savage street gang led by a man named Willy. The Black Warriors demand to the Lee brothers to disclose their martial arts secrets in exchange for Marian's freedom. The Lee brothers set out on a rescue mission to crush the Black Warriors and save Marian.
Using whatever techniques they have in their disposal, from the basic punches and kicks to the invulnerable elbow strike, as well any weapon that comes into their hands, the Lee brothers must pursue the gang through the city slum, industrial area and the forest before reaching their hideout to confront the big boss, Willy.
Double Dragon game never gets too redundant and straightforward, albeit there are only six different types of enemies. The enemies are all common thugs that only have one or two moves apiece, but as you fight more and more of them, you get slight improvisations that make more exciting fights like the aforementioned boxes and weapons to use, spear-thrusting statues and broken bridges with instant-death pools between sides.
Double Dragon video:
Just about everything from the arcade is here. The ability to kick a barrel or box on the ground is gone, but it was better picking them up anyways. The enemies in Double Dragon are definitely harder than the arcade, the trick is to not let yourself get cornered, follow that and you should do fine.
Graphics in Double Dragon are actually more vibrant and colorful, and many seem to have more detail and depth to them. Most of thugs are the same, and color switching isn't used as much as the coin-op, but it's okay!
