Intrigued by this. I love retro games but this was one i never played back in the 90's, always heard how good it is. Glad DotEmu have done the conversion, i'll pick this up later for sure

EVERYBODY SHOULD BUY THIS.. IF YOU DONT BUY IT I WILL SPANK YOU WITH MOON ROCKS.

In all seriousness.. I hope they did not mess up the controls.

Ah, yes, I remember this game well from so many years ago, when I played it on the PC.

Good controls for a game like this are critical, though, and I will wait to hear how they are are before hitting that buy button.

I haven't actually played any DotEmu ports as far as I'm aware, but I seem to recall that they are often praised for their control schemes. Or is this just wishful thinking, given that I've basically wanted to play this since it was first released?

I thought the double dragon port controls were done very well, that is my most recent memory of their work
