This is the current build of Double Dragon Neon
Again, not being on iPhone already makes this game better than Double Dragon iPhone.

I've got to agree but I wasn't impressed with the iphone game either. I really do not like the direction that these teams keep taking the franchise. The thing that I loved about the original game was that it wasn't too wacky, it was fairly realistic for its time... Well, as far as beat em ups go :)

Swainy, don't get me wrong. The iphone Double Dragon was nothing special. It was a a DDA rip off with uninspired levels, bad controls, new enemys that didn't fit at all, but with a decent art direction. Overall it was rather "eh...".

But compared to Neon, oh my god, DDi looks like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night! Suddenly, that lackluster game seems to get the rose color treatment.

It's like having a really hideously ugly friend that you keep around you when you want girls to notice you. Even if you are not Ryan Gossling, suddenly you are so much more approachable compared to your friend, Toxie.

Anyway, Neon is basically the new "Megaforce" of games.

Aside for the graphics, what bothers me the most about Neon is how the game's developers and marketing people barely talk about the actual game system (i.e. the "gameplay"). It's all about how they're "not taking anything seriously" or how the lead developer wants to include a Battletoads DLC. Superficial stuff that barely has anything to do with the play mechanics. Okay, they talked about trading health and reviving fallen partners in 2-Player mode (which would've been kinda cool if it wasn't for the dorky "high five" execution), but other than that it's a huge contrast from Double Dragon Advance, where the lead designer talked about what ideas he implemented from the previous games and what new stuff they added. There's more to making a Double Dragon game than including 80's references and punching Abobos.

Note that taking a standard game feature and giving it a "funny" name (online "bro-op") doesn't count.

It's possible they're both variants of Williams, seeing how they're both around when the name "Williams" is displayed (unless the white guy has his own name introduction during the kidnapping sequence), but it would be lame if that's the case (especially if they pull a Battletoads & Double Dragon and make "Roper" a Machine Gun Willy clone again).

Anyway, I've uploaded a comparison photo of Williams and Roper from Double Dragon (specifically their Mission 2 variants from the arcade version) and their namesakes from Enter the Dragon. They're not 100% alike, but they do have some vague similarities (both Williams have a 'fro and the Ropers have similar hair styles too).
