Hi guys!!!

I watched some reviews and some playthrough videos. Would have loved if this was released on 3ds to buy it. I don't have PS4 and too lazy to config the laptop to Steam (also I dont have credit card so unable to buy it).

I agree and specially I UNDERSTAND your comments guys, but here's my two cents:
- I havent play it so my opinion is merely from a spectator point of view. That being said, I like the overall art. I like the new enemies with the exception of the karate guys: DD have a lot of deep roster to develop, so I cant understand why those pesky "normal standard" karate guys.

- Didn't like the sound of the hits, how the knife hits, and how lazy they were in some aspects: using roper, linda, williams exaclty as they appeared in DD1 and DD2. They also were very lazy on adding the EXACT SAME DD1 title song, instead of a updated retro remix. Even the version that appeared on river city ransom sounds better.

- Weapons looks useless.

- Too few enemies. WHy not adding more variations to the right hand guy for example?

Overall I like the graphics. I'm mad about retro art so it's a gift for my eyes, and I want to use those backgrounds myself, but I can't avoid to think this looks too much like a fangame. Even in my fangame I have the twins with running animation. that whould have been a good update here. The twins run in DD3, why not here?

I really would love an updated version with the graphics of SDD and/or GBA. I think for lazyness they went with the 8-bit instead of the 16 bit style. And that just can't be.

Give Ebinuma the production of a new DD game please!!

PD: I'm the only one who think that Jake is based on "Animal" from Dragonninja?? he's the boss on the stage 4 of that game. you can see him in this picture:

yes the ios version still works but im using a ipad2 and i dont think it can actually update to the new ios update so i got kinda lucky. so as long as the ipad 2 doesnt die i should be able to keep playing it. hopefully i can buy another and just install the app from my icloud. Also that definetly looks like animal from bad dudes. first thing i said to myself when i seen the enemy in the game. I also agree that DD2 for pc engine, sprites looked pretty bad. I like DD4 its not bad but it was'nt what i wanted really. I also agree that they should've had a running option. i have also would've liked to see them use the sprites for vs mode in double dragon one for billy and jimmy that would've been nice. The game is pretty tough I make it to the 24th floor and get crushed, The AI is just brutal they crowd you and spam specials. I also havent gotten the share play option to work something about my connection is not strong enough which is bullcrap but whatever. I dont mind seeing ebinuma joining the team as well and putting together a complete SDD.

Well I got a chance to play and while I feel it is an okay game, it is definitely not the best of the series. I just felt so much more could have been done. It feels more like a fan game to me than an actually sequel. It seems like I was dodging spamming enemy specials more than anything. Overall it was some good beat em up fun, but I rather they give a sequel to SDD than anything else with an updated version of their game play and system. I just feel if you are going to come up with DDIV, you have to at least make it better than SDD, DDA, and DD IOS. Like I said, it was good but I really wanted this to be better.

Overall, I enjoyed the game, but I'm quite the fan so there is a little bias.

Pros:
The moves are easier to pull off.
I'm partial to these 8-bit graphics.
The return of past enemies
Decent length for a beat em up
Reasonable price
Stage select
Tower mode is not the greatest, but adds to the replay value.
Co-Op

Cons:
No online Co-Op. (Although people have used share play using the PS4.)
Lots of dead space between enemies in the first levels
Jumping on gears is too stiff resulting in cheap deaths
The larger karate guys can hit you when you aren't near them if they glow
No new earnable moves like the original Nes version
And the biggest disappointment is the first 3 Nes games aren't bundled. They should have the rights to use them.

It seems the reviews are split according to the Internet. As a fan though, it's hard not to enjoy this. Even after beating it, I will continue to play this.
