Double Dragon Neon Review by: dsluckay

Overall: 7.5/10
Double Dragon Neon is a reboot to the Double Dragon series, which originally dates back to 1987. Like previous games, you take control of Billy Lee and Jimmy Lee as they fight to save Marian from the evil Skullmageddon. Neon is about as arcade-esque as it gets, and is a great throw back to the 80s-90s style beat-em-ups. Click here to see the full review.


[top]Tips and Strategies

  • DUCKING AND DODGING IS YOUR FRIEND! - If you never duck or dodge, you won't get far in the game. Learn to dodge and get "gleam" to have a much easier time.
  • Develop your own strategies - Use the tapes that you would feel benefits you the most, and upgrade them. We all have different play styles.
  • Destroy everything! - Destroy the objects around the level to get goodies such as health and lives. This is very helpful.
  • Buy things - You have money for a reason. I found that buying lives (and a lot of them) seemed to make the game easier. You can also buy more tapes and other things from shops.

FuzzFace!!
Befriend everyone's most favoritest helpful character!

About halfway through Level 6, you will come to 2 stones (after an arrow trap and in front of ladders). Duck between them seven times for a secret friend and soda.

Metal Head
Upgrade a song at the Tapesmith

First what you will need is a song, which can be picked up from fallen enemies or bought in the shops. Then, you will need the Mythril to actually buy the upgrade, the first time you should get some is when you first fight Skullmageddon on Normal. Then, find a Tapesmith (when selecting a level, it will tell you what shops are in the level. Ex. Level 2 has both a shop and a tapesmith in it). Just get to a Tapesmith and choose any song to upgrade and this trophy is yours.

Weapon Master
Use every weapon once

There are weapons throughout each level of the game. To pick them up, walk over them and hit . You need to hit an enemy with each of these to get the trophy.

A Foot Face?
Become the hidden idol!

In Level 7, you will be in a room with a punching bag at the very beginning. Slowly, punch the bag until you hear a chime (about 80+ times). You will then be teleported to another level, where everything has a different face. Finish the level and the trophy will pop.

Gleam On!
Dodge and get the Gleam 50 times

You will get a "gleam" every time you dodge at the right time when an enemy strikes by press and moving . When done correctly, a symbol will appear above you, and you will be glowing for a few seconds afterward. If you play the game from start to finish, you will most likely get this on your first playthrough. If not, try again on your second.

Mr. Perfect
Complete any level without taking damage

Do this on Level 1 on Normal. Only attempt it when you feel you are very good at the game (maybe by the end of your first or second playthrough). You are going to have to perfect your dodging and ducking technique. One slip up and you have to restart. For a much easier time, fully upgrade the song Magic Gambit and the Sosetsitsu Dragon Swarm. Then just use that on most, if not all of the enemies you come across in Level 1.

Break all the Skullmageddon monitors in the Rocket Dojo

In Levels 3 and 4, you will be in the Rocket Dojo. You will see come across 19 television screens on the walls, which can be broken by punching, jump kicking, throwing weapons and more. Keep an eye out, as some are above other TV screens and the last TV screen will be below you, which can only be destroyed with the Bomb Toss Sosetsitsu.

Pick a Winner!
Nail all enemies with the hair pick

The Hair Pick is a small, pink weapon that can only be thrown. When you find one, pick it up with and throw it with or . For this trophy, you need to hit a number of enemies with it. To know if the Hair Pick has hit them, it should be stuck in their hair. These are the enemies that need to be hit with the Hair Pick:
  • Williams
  • Linda
  • Abobo
  • Skullmagaddon
  • Hoverbizzle
  • Ichisumi
  • Mecha Biker
  • Shun
  • Roxy
  • Jiang Shi
  • Boa Boshi

These enemies are in most levels, except for the bosses. Use this list as a checklist, and if you missed one go back through the levels (though if you missed one, you will need to play through the game 4 times so you will most likely hit each of them during those playthroughs). Hit the objects in the levels to find Hair Picks, and they will also be lying around. Once everyone has been hit with a Hair Pick this trophy is yours.

Victory!
Defeat Skullmageddon!

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

To prep for this battle, visit the shop and buy the max amount of lives in Stage 10. At the end of Stage 10, you will meet up with Skullmageddon once more. He still does the same moves that he did in Stage 2, but better with more punch. Dodge his green skulls and his hat for the first part, and keep hitting him when he is either swinging his sword or taunting you. You can also use your Sosetsitsu powers on him. Evil Marianne is helping Skullmageddon, you can jump kick her to prevent this at times. Once he starts flashing orange, you know he is on the verge of dying. Once you defeat him, he drops Mythril, but don't think it's done there.

Now, Marianne teleports you to space, and you are a robot-esque character now. You one-hit kill enemies, so don't worry about them once you get to Skullmageddon. When you reach him, he will look chrome as you. Now you have to fight him all over again. Dodging is crucial here! Skullmageddon can hit you and rally you, making you lose an entire life in one animation. Be careful. Once he is defeated the trophy will be yours.

If you are having trouble with this boss, replay Stage 2 for Mythril and upgrade your songs.

Misters Perfect
Complete any level in co-op without taking any damage... with friendly fire enabled!

Repeat the strategy from Mr. Perfect with another player or controller. Once the online patch is released, this can be done with another player online.

[top]
Double Dragon
Finish every stage cooperatively on Double Dragon difficulty with friendly fire enabled!

This will be your last playthrough. Once the patch is released, this can be achieved online. For now, you will need another player (or a second controller, but not recommended). Again just make sure you have your songs upgraded and keep the general tips in mind. For an easier time, once you've beaten the game solo on Double Dragon difficulty, have the second player a "Shadow Bro". This is a copy of your profile transferred to the second player. Remember to revive your teammate as well.

Max Fidelity
Max out every song to level 50!!

Get ready for some grinding. You will need to to upgrade each song to the maximum amount, which is 50. It goes up in 10s, and each upgrade goes up in cost by 4 (2,6,10,12). It takes a total of 30 Mythril to fully upgrade a single song, and a grand total of 600 Mythril to upgrade every song fully. Do your grinding in Level 2 on Double Dragon difficulty, so you can upgrade your songs in the Tapesmith shop, and because you will get around 20 Mythril per run (Skullmageddon drops them). You are also going to need to have each mixtape, which can be found and bought in the shops across each of the levels (each level will say on the level select screen if it has a shop or tapesmith or both). All songs can be bought from the shops! The video guide missed 2 shops, meaning they missed the songs that can be bought from them!

Single Dragon
Finish every stage solo on Double Dragon difficulty!

This will be your last solo playthrough. Once you have beaten the game on Normal, do so again on Dragon and now you will be faced with Double Dragon. By now, you should have most, if not all of the upgrades. If not, upgrade your favorites first before attempting Double Dragon (suggested once are Magic Gambit and Dragon Swarm). Be sure to buy lives and health from the stores, and duck and dodge to conserve health.
