Double Dragon II: The Revenge - Atari ST [017] PlayThru

Title Screen

NOTE: A trainer was used for making this capture.

Having played the original Double Dragon, I decided to continue with the series.  The Double Dragon sequel is an upgrade in many areas, but still a ways off from a great arcade port.

The graphics are a good job. I like the use of color.

Music?  There is none, and I don't think there is an excuse.  I do not like the sampled title tune either that appears at the title screen.  Sound effects are OK.

Control seems OK, but does get sluggish at points, slowing down even when there isn't a screen full of enemies.

If you are a side scrolling beat'em up fan, this is a decent effort. Give it a try. Otherwise, it is an average port, and much more could have been done, in my opinion, so this is probably a pass.

The tune heard at the beginning is from the arcade release.
