Double Dragon Trilogy
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A groundbreaking, uber-popular game upon its arcade debut in 1987, Double Dragon is the undisputed godfather of co-op beat ‘em all!
Enter Double Dragon Trilogy, a compilation specially optimized for mobiles and which includes all three installments of the beloved arcade series: Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, and Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone. The first one begins with Billy and his brother Jimmy, two martial arts experts, in a mission to rescue Billy's girlfriend, Marian, who’s been kidnapped by the Black Shadows Gang. All your favorite moves are here: punches, kicks, elbows, knees, head-butts and an assortment of not-exactly-street-legal weapons.
Battle your way through all 3 titles and bask in the greatness of one of the ‘80s most popular arcade games!
•Two game modes: “Arcade” (play the game from beginning to end and go for the high score) and “Story” (unlock new stages and achievements while playing through the game)
•Three difficulty levels: “mobile” (specially balanced for mobile games), “original” (similar to the arcade version) and “expert” (a real challenge!)
•Achievements & leaderboards (Game Center)
•Choose between the original 8-bit soundtrack and a brand-new remastered one!
•Co-op mode (two players) via bluetooth
•Gamepad support - very soon with most iOS controllers

Fix audio issues with iOS 9.
3 Star Title down to 2
DotEmu has done a mostly clean job getting one of THE most fun games from the past into the wonderful world of iOS.
The look is great, and you feel like it's 25 years ago re-living these classics on the iPhone/iPod/iPad. Graphically there's nothing I can tell that is off or nothing that glitches here. Well done!
The sound- very clear, and a bonus- not only the 8-bit Classic, but a modernized version of the soundtrack too! Sweet!
The gameplay- OK here's where the game takes a hit: but...not in Single Player! I'll admit, my 30 year old fingers may not tap the screen well enough to be as good as I used to be, but maybe that's why they included MFi support for controllers. I have yet to test that but another clap for DotEmu to that. The gameplay seems little more "speedy" than I remember as well but again I'm not sure if that is my perception.
Here's the rub: CO-OP Multiplayer! When a friend & I recently were pumped to try this: it was UNPLAYABLE! Choppy, unsynchronized play not to mention you barely can locate the other player to even start the game! This comes down to a testing issue. I'm not convinced they have thoroughly tested this portion of the game. We both have iPhone 6's running the latest iOS. Yes, even the latest iOS 9. This shouldn't be!
Further, they were quite kind when I emailed them for support of this issue, but they only offered more credit for their games library, not a promise of resolution for this game. What a shame. I hope they pour into this. I'm not mad at paying, because the game works for the most part- but your disappointment is doubled when you get a pal to play only to NOT be able to. 2 stars for not fixing any of the issues I reviewed in the last version.
Controls aren't the greatest
It took some getting used to because of the controls(trying to execute moves, walking off ledges, etc.). It's still entertaining and frustrating at times. The controls do make it more of a challenge.
Thanks for the fix!
