I elbowed the Shadow Boss to death

Over 25 years after I first bought the game, I have finally finished Double Dragon! Back then I played it a lot with my best friend in 2 player mode, but now I am relegated to playing it single player. It still feels great defeating the Shadow Boss solo though. I actually killed him the first time I ever made it to him.

 

I know there are plenty of Double Dragon threads already, but I really wanted to start a new one for this momentous occasion. I had 1 block left on my last man and 10 seconds left on the timer. Fortunately I was able to get on top of the Shadow Boss quick and he never even landed a hit on me. In fact, he never even fired a shot from his gun. Two hits probably would have been all it took to finish me off. Like the thread title says, I only hit him with the elbow.

 

Has anybody ever finished this game 2 player? I am really curious if Billy and Jimmy have to fight after defeating the Shadow Boss.

 

I really like the You Win screen at the end, it is nice seeing something like that on a 2600 game.

Great question....I just checked and yes they do. There are 2 Boss Willys (!) on the last level. If both brothers survive the round they then face each other with a bat in the middle. Whoever wins gets the girl.

 

FYI, the pics below are from KevinMos3's hacked version...he has invincibility and weak enemy hacks to make game play easier. And then I also changed RAM address $AC to start on the final level (12) as well.
