Hello all my Painkillers out there, and welcome to another addition of Grab A Buddy Monday! For today’s game, I’m going to tell you about a mash up, that even to this day, I have no idea how this even came together. Anyway, it’s time to grab your buddy, hook up your SNES, and let’s play some Battletoads & Double Dragon.
The plot of the game is simple. The Dark Queen has returned, and is once again hell bent on ruling the galaxy. This time, she has partnered up with the Shadow Warriors (you know, the baddies from the Double Dragon games), to make sure her plans go through. When the Battletoads find out about this, they get on touch with the Double Dragons, Billy and Jimmy Lee to help even the odds.
The gameplay is classic beat em up style. I like the fact that you can choose from all five battletoads and double dragons to play as. You play through seven levels, with a boss battle at the end of each stage. The downside of this game is that it follows the same gameplay as the first battletoads game, where if one person dies, and has to continue, that both players have to start at the beginning of that level.
Normally when I do these post, my goal is to try to get you interested in trying to find and play these games, and because of that, I try to not knock these games. Don’t get me wrong, because this is a good game, and you should definitely check it out. My issue with this game, is that it looks, feels, and plays like a battletoad game, as if the Double Dragons were added at the last second. Me personally, it would have been better to have a bit more double dragon stuff added in, but check it out yourself, and let me know what you think.
