It wasn’t until I was three quarters through drawing this Duck Tales comic that the wife asked me “Why is Scrooge carrying a cane to bounce around? Can’t ducks fly?”
Smart woman. Horrible taste in husbands, but smart woman.
Anyway! Duck Tales! It was a cool game! It was a solid platformer with lots of bouncing and picking up stuff. I heard Castle of Illusion on Master System borrowed a bit from this back in the day and I can see the comparison.
Man, remember when Duck Tales was on TV? That was good stuff.
Personally I spent more time playing the C64 Duck Tales game, which was completely different from the NES one. It was a bunch of different mini games featuring the Duck Tales characters flying, photographing and platforming around the world, all tied together with a strangely addictive stock market meta game. Give it a try!
