***** THE STORY *****
It all started five years ago...nuclear war set the world ablaze.
All civilization, any semblance of social order, lay in ruin.
And New York, in this nightmare necropolis of the future, was no different.
In an out-of-the-way corner of this urban pit lived two twin brothers.
Their names? Billy and Jimmy Lee.
Then one day, reality got even worse...
A letter arrived at the kung-fu dojo,
run by the brothers Lee.
“If you ever hope to have Marian back with you again,
bring us the Scrolls of the Sosetsu Arts.
The Black Warriors”
“The Black Warriors...!”
Yes. The greatest crime syndicate in New York,
organized by cold-blooded criminal genius...Willy.
“Marian...Hang in there....”
“You will be saved…I swear on the very bond that fuses our fates as one!”
The battle of these twin brothers’ lives is about to begin….

Pros and cons
Although this game is more advance then the original, there are still too much stuff missing from the original. This game have Advance graphics but missing the simple ness of the original. Far from "Arcade Perfect". You can run in this version. Some reason the music cuts out and sound effects remains. Music is somewhat the same.
The original start of the game is where a gang member punches the girl in stomach, all gang members walk off with girl. Billy and or Jimmy come out of garage with a Trans Am parked in garage. Things like this is missing from this version. This was the special part about this game. Things like this made the original game so awesome for its time. This version: Probably too much to list.
Overall it's a good game. Entertaining, playable for hours on end. Worth $1.99. But this version is lacking so much from original so it'll just have you missing the original even more and searching more for the original. I'm not 100% satisfied. Xbox 360 had a version almost the same as original but not on the marketplace anymore. I might have to spring for the actual arcade.
Decent Game With Wasted Replay Value
This game is actually pretty fun but unfortunately the replays hurt it. The dialogue is nice the 1st time you play it as Billy or Jimmy Lee, but upon replaying you see that it's exactly the same save their names if you switch. The bosses and other characters you unlock get no dialogue at all. I got bored of playing as Burnov because he can't kick, run, nor use weapons.
However, the game is fun to play though you may have a slight difficulty with controls. You may wrestle with the controls a bit but being cautious can help things, like getting into the hit zones of an enemy or not falling off a level by accident. Fortunately, you have plenty of lives to beat on normal difficulty.
The save isn't really necessary as the game is only 6 stages and it did not crash on me. However, a stage select would've been nice if they didn't allow saving but they don't have that. At least there is a time attack mode for a particular level.
There also is a typo in the intro calling Marian, "Marain" which cracked me up as much as "Bimmy and Jimmy Lee" in Double Dragon 3.
Lastly, you have a good arsenal of attacks with Billy/Jimmy and the limit break feature is fun though a bit slow to power up since you can't get hit. However, the animation is fun to do and it feels rewarding.
Needs some tweeks and fixes!!
Flaw #1: On the option settings, where it says "story event" the description says change difficulty? And also the "difficulty settings" the description it says story event on/off? The descriptions of those two settings are wrong. Flaw #2: sometimes when I'm playing stage level the music turns off randomly all you can hear is the SFX but no music. What's up with that? Happen to me twice already. Flaw #3: you guys took out the famous cut-scene in the beginning, please bring it back. Flaw #4: definitely needs autosave feature. One more request please add the original nes double dragon onto this app.
