Gamers of a certain age probably spent at least a few hours (or years) of their lives submerged in the original Double Dragon games. These side-scrolling beat-em-ups have stood the test of time, but emulators are so messy, right? DotEmu, a developer with plenty of experience porting classic games to mobile, has followed through on its promise to bring the Double Dragon Trilogy to Android as a single download.
Fans of classic beat-em-ups, it's time to get excited. while it's true that there are more than a few entries in this genre available on the Play Store already, almost all of them owe at least some inspiration to the great Double Dragon of arcade fame. DotEmu, no slouch when it comes to breathing new life into classics, is bringing all three of the original games to the Play Store sometime in the near future.
The gravy train just keeps on rolling for thrifty Android games. In addition to the dozens of titles on sale from other developers, retro specialist DotEmu has put all three of its Android titles on sale. You can pick up classic platformer Another World for $1 (75% off), shooter legend R-Type for a dollar (40% off), and shoot-em-up anthology Raiden Legacy for three bucks (40% off).
All three are solid games with 4+ stars on Google Play, well worth it if you're a fan of the original games or just the genres in question.
If you're old enough to remember a time when arcades blanketed the landscape, you probably also remember Raiden. This top-down scrolling shooter debuted in 1990 and attracted legions of fans. Now more than 20 years after it showed up in an arcade cabinet, you can play Raiden and its three sequels on your Android device courtesy of DotEmu.
This single download contains the original Raiden, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet.
