Double Dragon Trilogy heading to iOS and Android

DotEmu will be releasing Double Dragon Trilogy onto the App Store and Google Play Store before the end of the year. It’s exactly what it says on the tin – an app encompassing mobile ports of the arcade versions of Double Dragon, Double Dragon II: The Revenge and Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone.

Of course, a couple of enhancements have been made in the process, such as selectable difficulty levels – including one that’s a little more mobile friendly, achievements and leaderboards, a remastered soundtrack (as well as the original) and support for most iOS and Android game pads.

Personally, I still think the NES version of Double Dragon II is the best in the series.


Vectrex compilation coming soon to iPad and iPhone

The Vectrex is an insanely cool piece of kit – you really need to see one in person to understand the magic. For those of you who don’t know anyone with a Vectrex, you’ll be able to test out a number of the system’s games in the near future when Vectrex Regeneration hits the App Store for the iPad and iPhone.

Vectrex Regeneration will include all 19 official Vectrex releases, with plans to include a number of popular homebrew titles under way. The app will also boast leaderboards and support for the popular iCade peripheral.

Obviously some of the magic is going to be lost due to the way the Vectrex screen works, but if you’re looking to test out the system’s games before taking the plunge, this app might be right up your alley.


Bizarre Creations’ Fur Fighters now on iPad

One of Bizarre Creations’ less successful releases was Fur Fighters for the Dreamcast (and later PS2 as Fur Fighters: Viggo’s Revenge) – a solid third person shooter which replaced your usual soldier types with a variety of woodland creatures.

For reasons unknown, a group of former Bizarre staff (under the guise of Muffin Games) have released an updated version of the game for the iPad, entitled Fur Fighters: Viggo on Glass. It’s currently listed for $US1.99.
