Double Dragon Trilogy now available for iOS and Android devices


Ah Double Dragon,one of my favorite beat em’ up’s from my childhood. In fact I still play them from time to time. Well seems like I wasn’t the only one who thought they were decent games as DotEMU (The same company behind the Blazing Star, Metal Slug and Raiden Legacy ports)  has ported all three of the Double Dragon games; 1, 2 and 3 over to ioS and Android. No not the NES versions but the arcade versions and faithful intact I might add. And yes while I have an issue with games such as this requiring touch controls, I’m happy to say that the game also supports gamepads and even two player action via bluetooth connection.

A groundbreaking, uber-popular game upon its arcade debut in 1987, Double Dragon is the undisputed godfather of co-op beat ‘em all! Discover this mobile version and go back to childhood!

The Double Dragon Trilogy can be found on iTunes and Google Play for $2.99. I got my copy and I’m loving it.
