iPhones Get a Double Dose of Dragon

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 9, 2011 in Videogames |

A remake of the arcade classic, Double Dragon, hit the app store last week. Brizo Interactive  teamed up with Aksys Games to revive the license from the grave with fresh graphics, revamped gameplay and a remastered soundtrack. I had a chance to sit down and give it try and while the touch controls can be difficult to master, especially with the newly added move-sets, but otherwise it plays well. Unfortunately, I still find myself asking why they couldn’t just post the title to Xbox Live!, Playstation Network, or Wiiware for that matter. It’s a fantastic remake, but it’d be nice to have an actual controller. The app’s current price of $3.99 is a limited time offer. I can’t imagine them pricing it much higher, though.  Still, if you loved the original, you’ll definitely want this app.
