Where can I find a manual for Double Dragon V?

It does float! And doesn't get soggy in milk! :)

Where can I find a manual for Double Dragon V?

Post by Trev » Sat Mar 24, 2012 2:49 am

Atari Age doesn't have a scan (the only one they are missing it seems) and I can't seem to find one for the Jag version elsewhere. I finally got the game (keep the sarcasm to a minimum :wink: ) but it was just a loose copy (I wasn't gotta break the bank for this one :P ) Anyone know where I can find a scan? (or buy just the manual?)

If I had it I'd scan it for you. I will eventually have it, just probably not in the near future.

I appreciate the thought. Thankfully, it seems to be the type of game that doesn't require knowing too many special moves in order to win. Button mashing seems to be working just fine for me. :P

You could try looking up a FAQ for the SNES or Genesis version if you just want a move list. It might be a safe assumption to say the motions are the same across all versions.

I managed to pick up some special moves by doing Street Fighter type motions. The thing is ... I'm not sure I even need them ...

When I tried to play it like 2d fighters that I'm used to, I got pummled quickly. The cpu seems to block everything, the hits I registered seemed to barely do any damage, etc ...

I then tried to play it more like a button masher ... I'd jump quickly w/a few high attacks, and switch up and repeat some low ones. I'd slowly back the cpu into the corner as quick as I could, land a few hits, backup & repeat. Using these "techniques" I never lost a match ... not even one. :wink:

Now granted I've only done the normal difficulty. And to be fair, I have more matches that end due to no time being left than to the opponenet being finished. But still, I'd have to say Double Dragon V is both one of the most difficult & one of the easiest 2d fighters I've played. :P

Awesome! Lemmi comes through again! :)

The manual is hilarious. :P One thing I don't get is that the box says there are 12 characters, but the booklet only lists 8 (p w/the boss) Is there a way to unlock more?

Oh geez, are you actually playing this game? First Club Drive, now this.. You must be wanting punishment or something. Might as well track down Air Cars while you're at it! :lol:
