Double Dragon Trilogy

By DotEmu

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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)
•Customizable controls
•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

Absolutely awful controls, nothing like the original

I wanted to like this game...but it is beyond aggravating to play. The controls are so god awful it makes the game unbearable to play. As for the is absolutely, positively NOTHING like either of the originals for NES. Not even remotely close. The instant the come near you, they relentlessly unleash a barrage of attacks...over and over and over again. You get punched several times and then knocked down, and without a nanosecond to spare, the very instant you automatically get up, you get beaten and knocked down again. The original wasn’t like this whatsoever. Trust me, I enjoy a challenging game, but this game doesn’t give you the opportunity to even play. Did I mention the controls are an abortion?

It's Double Dragon!

I think it's funny that one of the reviews for this says that it's a loose comparison to the original Double Dragon.

Uh, this is the original Double Dragon. The controls aren't perfect, but this is a direct port of the original arcade games (for better or worse). If you played anything else called "Double Dragon", then THAT was the different version.


I like the music. I love how it looks just like the arcade with the sounds and all but the controls are HIDEOUS. They're so stiff and unresponsive. There are times when I'm trying to just press punch and my thumb is clearly only over the punch button but either nothing happens and the bad guys proceed to pound my character as he just stands there OR I throw and elbow (not touching the jump key at all) and then proceed to get pounded.

Hard to move diagonally too or even move at all. 1 star for the arcade portable nostalgia and music but the best classic Arcade fix of DD is on emulator still.
