Re: Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

I did get this game and it is fairly brutal but that being said I did start to have some fun with it after I started to get the hang of it. That being said I still can't get past mission 2. I have gotten past the Abobo screen usually with one bar of energy in my last life and then I am quickly kille...

Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

I am morbidly curious about the Atari 2600 version of double dragon. I own the 7800 version which I don’t actually think is as bad as people say. How much of a step down is the 2600 playability wise?

Who didn't own a NES in the 80's?

Back in the 80's I never owned a NES. I owned a 7800 and then a SMS. The 7800 was first because I foolishly believed my friend that the NES was more expensive and the only plus it had was better graphics. I came to find this was incorrect. Fast forward 1 and half later I am trying to decide between ...

Same. I wonder if you could use the 2600 controller?

Re: Praise for Desert Falcon

Think I may have played it on the Atari Anthology ? Had a hard time of it if memory recalls might need to spend more time with it. Any collections that have it are going to have the 2600 version which is not nearly as good as the 7800 version. I still like the 2600 version though. I actually play t...

Re: 7800 homebrews?

I love Desert Falcon and Food Fight. I'd love to see proper versions in a new flashback. I also like Double Dragon. Not sure why it gets all the hate. It's very playable once you figure out the reverse kick. I also like Choplifter, Xevious, Commando, Rampage, Alien Brigade and Ikari Warriors.

Praise for Desert Falcon

I love this game! I know I'm in the minority but I really enjoy it. The 7800 version is obviously preferred but I also enjoy playing the 2600 (via the DS atari collection) on advanced mode. The action is frantic and I love swooping down grabbing power ups or treasure dodging enemies. It would be nic...
