[size=240]Double Dragon - Dead Or Alive (Level 1)Consoles[/size]

This is the iconic music from the first level of Double Dragon, one of the greatest scrolling beat 'em ups of all time. It was converted to a number of platforms and here we compare the music from the console versions. For a comparison to the arcade game simply open the retro player and have a listen!



Atari Lynx (skip to 2 Minutes)



Nintendo NES



Sega Master System (skip to 0:30)



Atari 2600 & Atari 7800 (same music - skip to 0:50)



Sega Mega Drive / Genesis[/align:1hfa1h1n]

Mega Drive has the best music.  The Lynx has a very good rendition as well. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

They were my 2 favourites too, I was quite torn but after listening to them a few times I thought the Lynx version was closer to the arcade game so I went with that.
