I played through the whole thing with my GF last night. It only took a couple of hours. (In my opinion, that's good). 10 bucks for a few hours of XBLA or PS3 game play is great. Short, sweet, to the point. But you can replay that game to unlock stuff if you want.
I discovered several cheats while we played last night. I wanted to share them with the world as well as my sketch of one of the common enemies: Linda. She's a dominatrix. She's hillariously tasteless. It's pretty rad.
This is my version of the Double Dragon Neon Linda.

When you're in the map you can hold down L1 L2 L3 R1 R2 R2 select and start. If you hit them all, then you'll hear a robotic crash sound and then you can play the game as a f_cking ROBOT. You may have to beat the game first on normal. I'm not sure, but I think you can just do that. Basically hit all your L, R buttons + select and start.
Secondly, when you in the lab level with the punching bag - hit the punching bag 87 times. This is an homage to 1987. If you don't get it, then you never will. If you do that - exactly 87 times. You'll hear a SFX and then you can play through an extra part of the game with weird art. It's cool.
Thirdly - In the countryside (or maybe the level after that) you will see two gravestones close to each other. Before you bust them up - duck 7 times inbetween them and you'll unlock a weird thing. I can't explain it. It's weird. But the thing helped out. I'm not saying any more about that.
I think that's all I found. But I also recommend when you play leveling up your training wheels and keeping those on through the first playthrough - it will make things seriously easier. Farm the level 2 boss and spend your upgrade points/cash on that or balance and you'll be straight for the first few play-throughs.
That's all I got for now.
