The American Delta Vengeance Action Blood Force Kill Commando

The American Delta Vengeance Action Blood Force Kill Commando
The American Delta Vengeance Action Blood Force Kill Commando is a freeware first person shooter with a very distinct Commodore 64 feel. Clearly the game is far to advanced for an actual Commodore 64 to play, but the new-retro graphics make it pretty clear what the developers were going for.

A new installment in the legendary Double Dragon franchise is set to hit the virtual shelves on January 30th, 2017, which just happens to mark the 30th anniversary of the first Double Dragon title. The order of games is a little out of whack as Super Double Dragon for the Super Nintendo is technically the fourth Double Dragon game, but whatever, I’m just happy to see another Double Dragon title. As you could probably tell from the trailer, it is made to resemble an old school 8bit beat-em’-up. It definitely looks authentic, but only time will tell if Double Dragon 4 will live up to it’s predecessors in terms of gameplay.… Read the rest
