''Double Dragon Neon is a side-scrolling beat ‘em up that reimagines the classic formula slightly to try and offer a new experience for players that perhaps didn’t ever get to experience the original game in all its glory. You play either Billy or Jimmy Lee as they begin a mission to rescue Billy’s girlfriend who has been kidnapped by the evil Skullmageddon gang. Their mission takes them through classic environments reminiscent of the original game and will even find themselves on a quick, questionable, jaunt into space.
Neon trades on nostalgia from the start and doesn’t just rely on games from their own franchise to trigger it. The cheesy metal soundtrack, the brothers who could easily have been drawn from any number of popular 80s movies along with references to the decade littered throughout the game.''
