An iDevice version of classic beat-’em-up Double Dragon? Pff, whatever. Local co-op with a friend via Bluetooth? Okay, I’m listening.
Evil Avatar reports the revamp comes courtesy of Aksys, the same publisher behind the BazBlue series.
It’s not a direct port, instead featuring new art, sprites and remixed music, as well as a gameplay overhaul – probably a good thing since nostalgia clouds the unwieldiness of the original.
Played with an on-screen virtual controller, the revamp features as “easy to use” combo system and new attacks.
Achievements, unlockable characters, new enemies and bosses ices the cake, while two player bluetooth co-op puts a cherry on it the size of your head.
Double Dragon iPhone hits the App Store in March, and in the meantime, sports a fetching Facebook page.
