Online Play Coming to All Retro Games on iiRcade

Co-Op Classics: Double Dragon

It's one of the most influential video games of all time.  Two brothers.  A kidnapped heroine.  A trek to the distant lair of an evil overlord.  The description might fit Super Mario Brothers, and that game is excellent, for sure.  But this is Co-Optimus, and only co-op will do.  We're talking about Double Dragon, a game that is synonymous with co-op; indeed, for many people, it was the first co-op game they ever played.  We'll take a closer look at this genre-defining brawler for this week's installment of Co-Op Classics.
