Has the feel of the old arcade series with a modern twist that makes it quite fun to play. Recommended for anyone that loved the old arcade series, as the challenge of the game can easily be adjusted by using as little or as much of the tape system as you like.

2D 80's-style goodness with addictive beat'em co-op both local and online, a bro-tacular game indeed! Only major downside is how it keeps crashing lately mid-game (though I have Win7 but my bro-in-arms plays on Win10, so that might be the case???)
There is not much to say else about the game. It is high-quality 80s cheesiness brought to you by WayForward, i.e. the Platinum Games among western (indie) developers. Graphics are amazingly well detailed and the game boasts a killer soundtrack. It's also pretty cheap during sales. So yeah, get the game.

Game crashes every 10 minutes on Windows 10. There's about 12 developer ads that come up with you launch the game and not one of them bothered with supporting their game. Avoid anything made by any of them.

A fun new take on the classic original beat em up. Self aware and has a fun neo-80s look it to it.

Great game until you get to the helicopter stage, then it consistently crashes in both single and co op mode. Such a shame, especially as Skeletor... I mean Skullmageddon was quite a funny villain.

Broken due to game-crashing bugs (One notoriously known in a certain level where arrows rain down on the terrain while you jump over gaps). The developers are no longer supporting the game, so you will be buying a game that, more than likely, you will not be able to beat. I have tried multiple ways to get around it, but there is no work-around. RIP to an otherwise fantastic game that I thoroughly enjoyed playing with friends.

Screw this game. I was having fun with it, but just as I finished the first boss fight. The game ended up crashing for a SECOND TIME!

I refuse to believe this is my computers fault on the account that I built this computer a few months ago and have only played video games on it. Mainly from steam.

DEVS need to fix this ♥♥♥♥. It's INFURIATING!

"We could all play Double Dragon and switch off every time it crashes!" - my friend, suggesting a game to play.

Getting it out of the way right away, DD: N has a catastrophic bug that users seem to have pinned down to anyone playing on Windows 10 with an Nvidia graphics card. Due to what seems to be a memory leak issue, after a short while the game will crash to desktop. 3rd party programs attempt to fix this problem by increasing the amount of memory available to the program; this increases the time you can play before it crashes but cannot truly fix the problem. The longest I could play this game before crashing with a patch was about 1 hour 15 minutes. Without the patch, maybe 15-20 minutes at a time.

Outside of that issue, the gameplay is fairly standard fare for a Beat 'em Up. It might be my overall lukewarm opinion on the genre in general, but I find it incredibly boring because of the same uninteresting combos you use for the entirety of the game. Variety is attempted through constantly introducing new enemies and environments as you play, but you don't really handle them any different, so I don't know if it really matters. Final thoughts on gameplay is that it feels like a chore you go through to see the rest of the game, after the game crashes (always at the end of a level, of course) neither I nor the handful of people I've played it with feel any desire to replay the level.

Gameplay out of the way, though, and the game has a really nice feel to it. That "mock 80's retro" feel played up to 11 gives you something to smile about throughout the game and the soundtrack -- by the wonderful Jake Kaufman -- is a treat. I'm also a fan of the antagonist: Skullmageddon, an over the top Skeletor-like villain. I hear that the ending credits are simply amazing, but as I can't get the game working long enough to beat it I haven't actually seen them.

Conclusion / tl;dr : While the aesthetic is charming, the incredibly repetitive gameplay and horrific bug(s) that nobody thinks they need to fix make this game something I can't recommend.

I had to redact my recommendation of this game. It frequently crashes with Windows 10, and the developers have taken the money and ran far far away a long time ago. I loved this game, but too bad it is unplayable for so many.
