Retro classic Double Dragon Trilogy now available for iPhone and iPad

Time to take a trip back to 1987 today as Dot Emu has brought retro classic Double Dragon to the iPhone and iPad. Better still, they've brought the whole trilogy to the App Store under one roof as the Double Dragon Trilogy. Time to get your punch and kick on!

Enter Double Dragon Trilogy, a compilation specially optimized for mobiles and which includes all three installments of the beloved arcade series: Double Dragon, Double Dragon 2: The Revenge, and Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone. The first one begins with Billy and his brother Jimmy, two martial arts experts, in a mission to rescue Billy's girlfriend, Marian, who’s been kidnapped by the Black Shadows Gang. All your favorite moves are here: punches, kicks, elbows, knees, head-butts and an assortment of not-exactly-street-legal weapons.

With two game modes, three difficulty settings, an 8-bit soundtrack and forthcoming support for MFi game controllers, Double Dragon Trilogy might find itself dropkicking its way onto many an iOS gamers shopping list. All this retro goodness can be yours for just $2.99. No quarters required this time around.

So hands up, who's buying this?
