DD II Shrine
By Sarah Crisman
Many people don't realize it, but Tiger Electronics did more
with their video game licenses than just create cheap LCD hand-held video
games. Some of their games got the Pocket/Travel Game treatment, and one
such game was Double Dragon.
The unit itself is completely self-contained: the red plastic case holds the
fold-out game board and the instruction sheet. The dice required to
play are contained in a special plastic-covered clicker unit (hence the KLIX
name) that allows you to "roll" them without the risk of losing them.
Finally, a small compartment holds the four magnetized marker pieces (two
red and two yellow) that are used to play the game. As it is, the game
is two-player only though I suppose you could adapt a single-player variant
if you were alone and really bored.
The object of the game is to be the first player to reach the Finish square
with both of his or her markers, and thus rescue Marian from the clutches of
the Shadow Warrior gang. I've included a scan of the instruction
sheet, the Fight Results table that explains how play works, as well as a
scan of the game board, the cover of the instruction sheet, and the case
that holds the dice. About the only thing I didn't scan are the little
plastic marker pieces, but they are so tiny (about 1 cm each) that I'm not
certain it would do any good to provide a scan of them.
As I recall, I found this in the clearance section of a toy store while
vacationing in Georgia back in 1991. Aside from contacting the company
directly, I have no idea how one would go about acquiring one of these
outside of Ebay or some other on-line auction/sale service.
It's a nifty little pocket-sized package that measures maybe 3" x 2" x
1" when completely closed up, and I just thought I'd contribute this to the
site, since you guys already have information on just about every other
Double Dragon product ever made!
