Description of Battletoads & Double Dragon for NES

The game features the characters from the famous Double Dragon series, Billy and Jimmy Lee, two young martial arts experts. Also included are the three humanoid toads from the Battletoads game. Some enemies are from the Battletoads and Double Dragon games while others are original. The game's engine and design are directly based upon the Battletoads series

The player has a choice of five playable characters: Billy and Jimmy Lee (from Double Dragon), and Zitz, Pimple and Rash from Battletoads. The player must then proceed through seven stages, kicking and punching each enemy that comes onscreen. A boss is included at the end of each stage, challenging the player before they can progress to a higher level of the game.

The Mega Drive/Genesis and Super Nintendo versions of the game are quite similar, the only differences being the Super Nintendo version has better graphics and higher quality sound, while the Mega Drive/Genesis version runs smoother, features more music tracks, has sharper sprites for the toads, and more comical reactions from defeated enemies.

The NES version of the game features 3D scrolling and other advanced special effects not commonly found on the console.

The Game Boy version is similar to the NES version, but it is only for one player. Also, the sprites are the same size although the screen is smaller, leaving less room for movement.

With two players, the continues are overlapping. Whenever one player continues, then both players have to start at the beginning of the level. This is the opposite of games like Contra, where a strong player can tow a weak player along to advanced levels. In Battletoads & Double Dragon, a weak player will hold a strong player back.
