Double Dragon

In Double Dragon, you play as Billy Lee, a martial artist whose girlfriend has been kidnapped by a ruthless street gang. You can perform kicks and punches with the A and B buttons as well as a powerful jumping kick by pressing both attacks at the same time. The enemies you face have different attacks so knowing how they fight is very important. Some enemies will use weapons against you and will drop them when hit, allowing you to use it against them.

The game unfortunately doesn't include simultaneous co-op but it does have a vs mode. The controls are not as smooth as the more refined beat 'em up titles for the Super NES but there is still some charm in the simple yet challenging game.
