Thanks for posting this. I love Double Dragon. I can no death it.

You get the most points by using headbutts but it's terrible and takes forever.

What's a "point pressing"?

 

Point pressing is where you do something repeatedly in a game in order to boost your score. For example, Contra keeps spawning more enemies, so you can keep killing them for points. And there's no timer in Contra so you can do it indefinitely.

 

Double Dragon you can point press by repeatedly kicking or punching an enemy without knocking them down. But there is a timer so you can't keep doing it indefinitely. The only way you can point press indefinitely is by resetting your health and the timer by exiting and then re-entering areas. Not sure which aspect is forbidden.

There's no timer in Double Dragon 2 so you can point press indefinitely by repeatedly kicking or punching enemies and not knocking them down. I dunno who'd have the patience to do that for very long.

I had a couple of stupid deaths. Slipped up on my wall strat and lost a life there. Also lost a life to the knife wielding chins that are right after the wall.

The final boss was being a total dick and constantly throwing jump kicks. I almost game over'd to him.

This time I spent more time headbutting enemies. I would've had over 200k had I not stupidly lost a life in mission 3 to the knife guy at the bridge.
