Re: RetroGamer #103: The Making of Double Dragon

I've merged Halfpenny's and Swainy's threads, since they were both about RetroGamer #103. Anyway... Double Dragon mainly came to be because during the last few days of Kunio Kun the development team suddenly realised that it would be fun if the player could pick up and use the enemies weapons but th...

Re: Clarifying the Abobo and Bolo mix-up

Re: Double Dragon Neon

The same is true for all their Kunio beat-'em-ups (all of them were rather different too, with the exception of River City Ransom and Downt...
