DescriptionSubmit Description
Double Dragon is Activision's attempt at porting the popular arcade game to the Atari 2600. Naturally, many sacrifices had to be made, most notably with the graphics, which means that the characters look very bizarre in terms of the colors used for them. In addition, the one-button setup required Activision to compress many of the fighting moves by combining button presses with joystick movements. This feels a bit awkward at times, although much of this can be attributed to poor collision detection. Double Dragon can be played by one player or two players simultaneously, and there is also a one-on-one fighting mode for two players. (Contributed by Larcen Tyler)
