Double Dragon is a classic arcade and go!e console game from the late 1980s, and into the 1990s. It was a great game and franchise in its time, popularizing the venerated Beat ‘Em Up genre. The success of franchise spawned several releases over different platforms. The original arcade game, and its first two arcade sequels was ported over to Android, and released by DotEmu, as a single collection. As such, this review will cover this trilogy.
DotEmu had two big announcements to share at E3 2015, the first being Titan Quest, and the second being the company expanding the Ys Chronicles series on Android with Ys Chronicles II.

Crazy news this morning for fans of old school RPG series, DotEmu has announced that they will be bringing the Ys Chronicles to Android in the near future… well the first game at least.

However Ys Chronicles was a remake of those games, with a bunch of enhancements and packed together, before being released in the early 2000s for PC and the PSP which is where it gained a lot of popularity, not that it wasn’t popular back in the early 1990s.
