The great Beat'em up Double Dragon Neon from Wayforward is on 80% sale on Steam this week.

Double Dragon Neon is actually more a homage to beat'em ups like Turtles in Time and the 80's and 90's in general, than Double Dragon specifically, dut don't let that stop you from checking it out.
It's a great game, good satisfying combat, a light rpg system with skills and levling, funny humour, and truly amazing music.
Recommended!

A game reeking of toxic masculinity and the objective is literally save a scantily clad damsel in distress? No thanks

I have it but I've put off playing it because I haven't been able to get a friend to come over and play it in co-op yet. How is it in single player? Is the co-op drop in/drop out?

The core team that made this game went on to form Yacht Club Games (Shovel Knight)... IIRC this was the first time they all worked together on a project.

Have they went back and fixed the online? If I recall if you played it and reach a certain point the game just lags and desyncs all the time leading to a lot of disconnections between friends. I tried to play with a friend and once we got to the 4th level we would constantly lag out and the game would disconnect all the time.

From what I've heard it was a port done by Midnight City that was also abandoned after the first patch that didn't fix anything

Haha

For 2, it might be the right price.


Could folks who make these threads be troubled to post a link to the store page in their OP?

Can do!
I've never bought anything on the steam website so I just assumed everybody just looked up the game in the Steam client.
