Tips for Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise Of The Dragons

Get ready to level up your Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise Of The Dragons experience with these ten game-changing tips! Whether you're a newcomer to the franchise or a returning player, these insights will help you navigate the game's unique challenges and make the most of your gameplay. Or at least let you survive longer than the two minutes that my first run lasted! 

1. Feast on Special KO's

Keep an eye out for opportunities to perform Special KOs, especially when your health is full. These knockouts drop valuable food that can be converted into cash. Spend that cash wisely at the shop to purchase tokens, unlock items, and even new characters!

2. Choose Your Continue Type

When starting a new run, pay attention to the continue options. Infinite allows unlimited continues, permadeath means one life and you're out, and continuous requires spending five tokens to continue. For starters, go with infinite until you get the hang of things and avoid getting frustrated too quickly.

3. Minions Mean Rewards

During boss fights, don't just focus on the big bad guy. Take out the minions as well. Defeating these underlings gives you a chance to perform Special KO's, granting you health-restoring food or extra cash. It's a win-win!

4. Boss Bonuses

After defeating a boss, you'll get to choose an upgrade for both your primary and secondary characters. If none of the items interests you, don't fret. Opt for a one-time cash payout instead to boost your funds.

5. Strategic Sector Selection

Each stage has four sectors to play through, but the order in which you tackle them matters. Start with the hardest sector first. By completing it, you'll only need to finish one area, saving you from tackling all four. Smart choices lead to smoother progress!

6. Gun-Wielding Troubles

Enemies armed with guns pose a greater threat due to their extended range. When facing levels with mixed enemy types, prioritise taking down these gun-toting foes first. Eliminating them early on will spare you the hassle of dodging bullets while dealing with others.

7. Token Shop Triumph

Don't squander your hard-earned cash on continues. Instead, cash out and head to the Token Shop. Unlocking new characters or items can give you an edge in combat and make previously challenging areas more manageable. Put in the effort, grind a little, and reap the rewards!

8. Watch Your Step

Watch out for fall damage! Some stages feature platforms or edges where falling can cause harm. Stay towards the middle to avoid accidental falls. And remember, if you can fall off, so can your enemies. Use this to your advantage by grabbing and tossing them off or simply giving them a taste of your punches near the edge!

9. Smash and Prosper

Don't leave any furniture or boxes intact. Break everything in sight to earn easy money. Additionally, keep an eye out for slot machines, poker tables, arcade machines, cars, and tires — they can all be smashed for extra cash. The more money you have, the more awesome items you can acquire!

10. Character Chemistry

Each character possesses unique abilities and strengths. Take advantage of this diversity when selecting your duo. Large characters like Abobo hit hard but move slowly, while faster characters like Jimmy Lee excel in agility. Pairing complementary fighters allows you to switch between them strategically, adapting to different combat situations with ease.
