Mr. Big is back in town, and this time he's captured your brother! He's being held at Big's Pig Pen which is located on the upper side of town. The problem is, every gang in the city is out looking for you. It is now up to you to beat the odds and rescue your brother. You start the game armed only with your fists, and along the way there are some additional weapons to be found such as baseball bats or garbage cans. Gameplay is an arcade style side scrolling action game for one player.

A fragment of music theme that plays in the cutscenes between the stages was used in the song Zabivayu by Russian band Narkotiki. The song is generally about gaming.

Unlicensed hack - Double Dragon IV

A hack of Target: Renegade with title screen changed to Double Dragon IV was available on cartridges in Russia and other countries. In fact, until the internet became available in every household, many players from Russia sincerely believed that this was the true Double Dragon IV game.

ZX Spectrum versions

Similar to the precursor, the game was released separately for the 48K and 128K machines. The former suffers the indignity of loading each level in turn, whereas the latter version loads everything in a single go.
