Summary

A Very Bad Port

The Good

It was unique to the Atari 2600. Very few (if any) games were scrolling fighting games. and that's just about it.

The Bad

First, the gameplay is way too hard. You only land one kick on your enemy and then he counters with a 3-hit combo until you're dead. In fact, I've never got past the first screen it's so difficult. Plus watch the characters as they move.It looks a bit gay. And the colors are pretty screwed up as well. The purple skin looks eerie.

The Bottom Line

Don't buy this game if you're looking for something fun. Only collectors should hunt down Double Dragon for A26.
