Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble! (Viewtiful Joe Scratch! in Japan) is the third of four games in the Viewtiful Joe series. It was developed by Clover Studio and published by Capcom for the Nintendo DS in 2005. Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble! looks and plays similarly to Viewtiful Joe and Viewtiful Joe 2. However, the touchscreen is a key feature of the game's controls. It enables gamers to split the level in half as well as swap the top screen to the touchscreen and vice versa.

Gameplay Edit

In Double Trouble!, there are now 6 extra bars of VFX instead of 5. The Mach Speed and Zoom VFX powers present in the other Viewtiful Joe games have been removed. In addition, players collect V-Tapes instead of V-Films. The VFX bar also seems to drain slightly faster than in other games.

  • Slow - Slows down the action to do more damage and begin lock-on. This is Joe's trademark power and has been in the series since the beginning, way back in the original Viewtiful Joe.
  • Split - Allows the player to split the screen horizontally and can be used to drop objects on enemies as well as to jump through walls.
  • Scratch - Allows the player to shake the screen around to make random pieces of debris fall on dazed enemies.
  • Slide - Switches the bottom screen with the top. Slide is similar to Zoom from the first 2 games, but it also gives access to another power, Touch.
  • Touch - Can be used to remove small, normally indestructible enemies, such as bats, from gameplay or to flip or turn switches in the background.
