Double Dragon punches iOS in the gutPosted on March 3, 2011
Beat-’em-ups are woefully under-represented on the App Store, but one of the genre’s earliest classics has arrived to help fill the void. Enter the … Double Dragon. Aksys Games has released Taito’s seminal scrapper in updated form, compliments of developer Brizo Interactive, for an “introductory price” of $3.99 — steep, yes, but set to increase to $7.99 at an unspecified point.
App Store reviews of the game — which is ported from the Zeebo platform — are mixed so far, with most complaints focused on the unnecessarily large (and opaque) “control panel.” Still, it’s said to be faithful to the original’s gameplay and features multiple unlockable characters. See Billy and Jimmy get their clobber on after the break.
