A groundbreaking, uber-popular game upon its arcade debut in 1987, Double Dragon is the undisputed godfather of co-op beat ‘em all!

Enter Double Dragon Trilogy, a compilation specially optimized for mobiles and which includes all three installments of the beloved arcade series: Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, and Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone. The first one begins with Billy and his brother Jimmy, two martial arts experts, in a mission to rescue Billy's girlfriend, Marian, who’s been kidnapped by the Black Shadows Gang. All your favorite moves are here: punches, kicks, elbows, knees, head-butts and an assortment of not-exactly-street-legal weapons.

Battle your way through all 3 titles and bask in the greatness of one of the ‘80s most popular arcade games!

•Two game modes: “Arcade” (play the game from beginning to end and go for the high score) and “Story” (unlock new stages and achievements while playing through the game)
•Customizable controls
•Three difficulty levels: “mobile” (specially balanced for mobile games), “original” (similar to the arcade version) and “expert” (a real challenge!)
•Achievements & leaderboards (Game Center)
•Choose between the original 8-bit soundtrack and a brand-new remastered one!
•Co-op mode (two players) via bluetooth
•Gamepad support - very soon with most iOS controllers

Great game but please please update

The game is great and I’ve been playing it for years but the developer needs to update the controls. Ever since iOS 13.3 the controls are broken, all the buttons are mashed together and this makes the game unplayable, same goes w R-Type and R Type 2. Please do not buy until it is updated. Dotemu please please please update the controls, does NOT work on iPhone XS, XS pro, 11pro, 11pro max but it does with the XR and the iPhone 11?? I pay premium but games don’t work with my Pro

Much better...just needs a few more tweaks until perfection...

The developers added continues (thank you!) and made some other tweaks, which are a BIG improvement over the previous version. However, having a (or at least have the option to have) "add credits" button would be ideal for the games, Especially for Double Dragon 3 where having additional credits is mandatory to purchase items at the shops. And where's the level map for Double Dragon 3? Other than that, everything else is Double Dragon nostalgia awesomeness, a top notch port of all the games I played in the arcades as a kid.

For those who were wanting the NES versions: These are the ARCADE versions of the games, which came out BEFORE the NES versions.

Keep up the good work development team!! Here's my five stars for Double Dragon trilogy!!!

Unplayable on iPhone X

All the games in this pack, double dragon, rtype etc are unplayable on “modern” iPhones. It is astounding that apple would feature this. I love rtype. I love double dragon.
The default control scheme squashes all the controls in the bottom right corner of the screen. It’s supposed to be a dynamic system where you can move the controls wherever you want on screen. It probably worked great 4 years ago - but it hasn’t been updated in so long that it’s impossibly broken. I was so excited to play this. Then so disappointed in apple for featuring and dotemu for not updating. This can’t possibly be a hard fix for the devs - I am one - I know, it’s easy. BUT the publisher has to pay them to do the update. And that’s never going to happen.
Apple - why would you feature a game that doesn’t work on your latest devices?
A stunning failure to retro gaming fans. I’m sure it it was on Apple Arcade it would be getting an update.
