Re: Double dragon IV for the NES?

Sounds like you've came across a hack of Target; Renegade.

I have good memories of the game but alas, the NES game is nothing to write home about. The Wiki entry is fairly accurate (amazingly!).

Double Dragon NES ROM hacks

Disclaimer - We at the Dojo don't condone the usage of ROMs, yadda, yadda... Nevertheless, Romhacking.net is an interesting site where fanboys have hacked their fave games to come up with something a little different (a LOT different in a few cases!) with a couple of Double Dragon entries. There's a...

Re: Double Dragon 128k - The graphics

Ah, back are we? Where the heck have you been? You'll never let the whole Spectrum thing die will you? lol. Have you seen the latest Retro Gamer magazine in regards to Nemesis on the Speccy? Interesting that... well, I'll let you read it yourself if you haven't already. Anyway, I prefer the colour v...

Re: Double Dragon prototypes

Do you think it was ever planned for the game to be two players or a straight port (I see the latter as more doubtful as most NES games seemed to be "inspired" by rather than exact copies. Never understood that personally).

This could be a pretty big deal actually. I haven't bothered with my DS for a long time but I'd probably pick this up. A new DD could follow...

They certainly are. River City Ransom and Renegade are Westernised versions of Kunio-Kun games.

Re: Dingoo A320... Play ALL the Double Dragons on the move!

Oh sure. I wouldn't diss owning the real thing.

But unlike many of the machines that have came before it, this is already gathering a great online community with emulators very close to the real things indeed and getting better every day. Haven't tried playing NES games on it yet mind.

Re: Double Dragon 2600 in the latest edition of GamesTM magazine

The 2600 had a bit of a comeback in the mid - late 80s though, didn't it? They released that modified 2600 and suddenly Atari released a few new titles too (such as Pac-Man Jr, which isn't bad at all). So grabbing the rights may not have been such a bad idea. Of course, a game like Double Dragon may...

Double Dragon 2600 in the latest edition of GamesTM magazine

Saw this yesterday in the newsagents... In the latest version of GamesTM they slate the 2600 port of Double Dragon in one of their regular features. Nothing of note is said really other than they think that the Megadrive / Genesis version is good (yeah, whatever...).
