************************ * THE STORY SO FAR ... * ************************ Double Dragon is the story of two twin brothers, Billy and Jimmy Lee, facing the odds together in a city where survival has to be learned the hard way. Their knowledge of the martial arts, combined with the experience of tough urban existence, has made them both formidable fighting machines, ready for any challenge that comes their way. But now the brothers are faced with their greatest challenge ever. Billy's girl Marian has been kidnapped by the Black Warriors, a savage and ruthless street gang led by the mysterious Shadow Boss. Using skills gained from a lifetime on the streets, and whatever weapons come to hand - including knives, whips, baseball bats, rocks, and even oil-drums - Billy and Jimmy must pursue the gang through the sprawling slums, factories and outskirts of the city, to reach the thugs' hideout for a final confrontation with the infamous Shadow Boss! ************ * THE CAST * ************ BILLY LEE: Height 5'10''.

The action takes place across all the scenes straight out of the Arcade machine in all their faithfully reproduced colorful glory! At the bottom of the screen are shown two sectional bar displays, with a number next to thwm. These are the 'lives left' information for the two players. As the bar runs down, a life ebbs away. Once all the lives are gone, you're history! In the center is displayed the time left to complete the level you're playing. If the count goes to zero, you lose a life. Tough huh? No loitering. Just as in the Arcade, you clear a level to progress deeper into Gang territory. A victory tune announces comletion and you move onto the next stage. If you succeed in winning through all five stages ...... a surprise awaits you. Hace a nice day! ******************************* * A NOTE FROM THE PROGRAMMERS * ******************************* Dear Games Player During our Herculean task of cramming as many as possible of the multitude of animation and graphic elements that make up the Arcade game into the CPC, we were faced with a problem. To get both one- and two player options, and to achieve the autentic feel of two- player simultaneous action, simply took more memory than we had available. But we knew how dissapointed you would be if the game didn't have the same two-player mode a the Arcade game you know and love. So we came up with a memory-saving solution. We implemented sprite stacking techniques to create the animated characters (using two smaller sprites instead of one larger one to create each figure). The resulting small gap you may notice in the characters at waist level, is the compromise that the architecture of the CPC forced us to make. This should not impair your enjoyment of the game in any way. The Programmers *********
