Great game but please please update
The game is great and I’ve been playing it for years but the developer needs to update the controls. Ever since iOS 13.3 the controls are broken, all the buttons are mashed together and this makes the game unplayable, same goes w R-Type and R Type 2. Please do not buy until it is updated. Dotemu please please please update the controls, does NOT work on iPhone XS, XS pro, 11pro, 11pro max but it does with the XR and the iPhone 11?? I pay premium but games don’t work with my Pro

Much better...just needs a few more tweaks until perfection...
The developers added continues (thank you!) and made some other tweaks, which are a BIG improvement over the previous version. However, having a (or at least have the option to have) "add credits" button would be ideal for the games, Especially for Double Dragon 3 where having additional credits is mandatory to purchase items at the shops. And where's the level map for Double Dragon 3? Other than that, everything else is Double Dragon nostalgia awesomeness, a top notch port of all the games I played in the arcades as a kid. For those who were wanting the NES versions: These are the ARCADE versions of the games, which came out BEFORE the NES versions. Keep up the good work development team!! Here's my five stars for Double Dragon trilogy!!!

Awesome beat’em up classic
Definitely one of the best arcade classic on today’s new devices. Unlike like others which bombard you with ads and convoluted menu which is completely unnecessary. This is exactly what it is and was from the 80s. The remix to the original music is a greatly appreciated touch and done right, with the option to switch to the original. Thank you for making the controls adjustable. And thank you for thinking it through with the video option as well as the game’s difficulty. If you’re into old school video games or Arcade1up classics then this game absolutely deserves to be in your collection. Get the original beat’em up godfather of them all. Yes - this came out before Final Fight.

Unplayable on iPhone X
All the games in this pack, double dragon, rtype etc are unplayable on “modern” iPhones. It is astounding that apple would feature this. I love rtype. I love double dragon. BUT The default control scheme squashes all the controls in the bottom right corner of the screen. It’s supposed to be a dynamic system where you can move the controls wherever you want on screen. It probably worked great 4 years ago - but it hasn’t been updated in so long that it’s impossibly broken. I was so excited to play this. Then so disappointed in apple for featuring and dotemu for not updating. This can’t possibly be a hard fix for the devs - I am one - I know, it’s easy. BUT the publisher has to pay them to do the update. And that’s never going to happen. Apple - why would you feature a game that doesn’t work on your latest devices? A stunning failure to retro gaming fans. I’m sure it it was on Apple Arcade it would be getting an update.

Key configuration all messed up
I played this game many atimes without any problems but now the key settings are all messed up the default key configuration makes the buttons overlap against each other and they are huge in size. I tried moving them around but I can’t do anything because the smallest I can get them is no small enough so I can’t move the punc and kick to the right side because the d pad is overlapping and taking up all the space. I tried support on the web site but there is none. And they don’t even mention DD anymore. I don’t know what else to do. I even deleted the game and re downloaded it but it stays the same arrrrrrgh! Some one please help me!!

This game is unplayable
It’s very unfortunate I wish the bugs could be fixed I should’ve realized with the last message that was sent not to purchase this game, but I did anyway hoping that I could play it on my platform iPhone 11. I spent three dollars for nothing. I hope the developers could get this game fixed the control nob and attack buttons fill the entire screen. Everything is enlarged and the game is unplayable. If I can give zero stars I would. It’s a shame because double dragon was awesome. DOTEMU please fix this bug so I could write about what an awesome job you guys did. I know it’s only three dollars but I don’t like wasting money.

Controls aren't the greatest
It took some getting used to because of the controls(trying to execute moves, walking off ledges, etc.). It's still entertaining and frustrating at times. The controls do make it more of a challenge.

It's Double Dragon!
I think it's funny that one of the reviews for this says that it's a loose comparison to the original Double Dragon. Uh, this is the original Double Dragon. The controls aren't perfect, but this is a direct port of the original arcade games (for better or worse). If you played anything else called "Double Dragon", then THAT was the different version.

I like the music. I love how it looks just like the arcade with the sounds and all but the controls are HIDEOUS. They're so stiff and unresponsive. There are times when I'm trying to just press punch and my thumb is clearly only over the punch button but either nothing happens and the bad guys proceed to pound my character as he just stands there OR I throw and elbow (not touching the jump key at all) and then proceed to get pounded. Hard to move diagonally too or even move at all. 1 star for the arcade portable nostalgia and music but the best classic Arcade fix of DD is on emulator still.

Not worth it.
This is a waste of $2.99. The only thing good about it is that it stays true to the game like it was years ago. The problem is the control of the joystick is not calibrated so it doesn't move like the real joystick did in the arcade, the buttons do not work like it should (I.E. when you press the punch button, it kicks instead) and sometimes there is a delay in action when you move or press the buttons. If you want to waste your money on this, then it's fine. I don't think it was worth the investment..

Configuration Issue
The joystick display is to big and when I go to configurations to set it down to a smaller size, it sits on top of the other buttons, which prevents me from moving them to the left or right; I never had this problem in the past. How do I fix this?

It's freaken Double Dragon 1, 2, and 3
Is all 3 classic Double Dragon arcade games in 1. Love the music. Thanks for this game. I haven't found any lag at any parts. In the arcade, if there are 4 enemies on the screen at ones, it will lag. In this version, when there are 4 enemies at ones, IT NEVER LAGS AT ALL! Thanks for fixing the lag.

Just like original
Brings me back to playing this with my Dad on the original Sega system. The game is just as I remembered. Love it... Only complaint is the ability to jump kick in I and II it should be more fluid. If that gets fixed it would be 5 stars. Great game and great job bringing it to the mobile platform overall.

Rip off
Wow! What a ripoff by the developer! Purchase price for this game shows $2.99. Why the hell did I get charge for $13. On top of that, the game doesn’t even work. The kick, punch, jump, pause buttons don’t work. The only thing that worked was the joystick. Even after trying to change the control settings, it still does not work. Don’t waste your time and money! This game hasn’t been updated for 4 years. No wonder its only got a rating of 3 stars.

Perfect port of the actual Arcades!!
For those (who are most likely trolling) who give this a 1 star and say it's not the original don't know what they are talking about. THIS IS THE ARCADE VERSION. Not the nes,genesis,amiga,commodore etc.. So it comes with all the controls for better or worse of the arcades. It also has MFI controller support AND Bluetooth multiplayer. So for those who want and know about arcade games and want a classic beat 'em up without all the nonsense expensive to play "Free"-2-Play this is good example.

Impossible to play
Controls are terrible. I find my character continually changing direction when I press punch or kick or just doing nothing and getting killed. The hit detection is brutal in this game. Enemies have a far greater range of motion and almost always get the first hit. Anything less than perfection won't cut it in this game, and that's a terrible situation to be in with controls that lend themselves to imprecision and mistakes...

Game was unplayable for years.
Nice of you to patch it after years of not being able to use it on iphoneX due to the controls being blown up and covering the entire screen. You guys are terrible I assume you only updated it because no one was buying it after years of you selling a broken app.

WHY??? 😭
The late 80s, we had everything, Guns N’ Roses, arcades, and Double Dragon. It was the favorire arcade for many of us who were kids in the 80s, I waited for a version for iPhone and... and... why did you do this? It is simply impossible to play it on iPhoneX, no sound at all, I see half screen (!!!!!!!) and only two buttons. Please update it, you killed one of the best arcades ever

First I'll give you two stars for nostalgia. The controls while they are greatly improved in double dragon 2 there are times where I can't hit anyone. Double dragon 3 tho what the heck is this. The character and animation are so insanely jittery and I'm playin on iPad Air and iPhone 6 Plus. Just wow. Please let me refrain from vomiting

On screen controller is unusable. Controller configuration option is even more useless. I cannot move the buttons to anywhere on the screen where they are able to be pressed. Perhaps the on screen controller would work on an iPad, but on my phone it’s garbage.

Thanks for stealing
If you’re not going to continue to update the app then it needs to be free. The joystick gets stuck and you find yourself only able to move in one direction. You have to keep pausing the game to unstick it. Fix it or give me my $3 back.

Awful control configuration
Can’t adjust the controls. The joystick box overlaps the other controls and it can’t be fixed on an iPhone X. The compatibility section should be updated and new iPhone models should be removed from the section. Refunds should be given for this.

Waste of money
This game is a complete waste of money. The controls are garbage and the games aren't even the same as the originals. The levels are different and the story is completely absent. I wish I had listened to the reviews and not purchased this. Save your money and DON'T BUY THIS APP!!!

Just bought the game for my IPhone 12 Pro and can’t play it. The buttons won’t work. The only thing that works is the analog. You can’t jump, punch or kick. Very disappointed I paid 2.99 for a classic game that doesn’t work.
