A Trip Down Memory Lane
Ducktales is an old school romp through 5 different levels from around the world featuring everyone's favorite Scottish duck, Scrooge McDuck along with his nephews and the quirky cast from the complimentary Disney Afternoon show, DuckTales. The game features classic platforming action where the player uses Scrooge’s signature cane to pogo on top of and smack enemies to help him do the one thing he does best; get more money! Rather short for only being 5 levels long, the game does have multiple endings at multiple difficulties so it’s replay value is high form the most inexperienced player to the best game master. While the gameplay is solid, the music is not a slouch either. Every track sets the proper tone for it’s back drop with the theme from the Moon level being one of the most recognized and loved songs from the gaming community. With multiple endings, a solid soundtrack and a pick-up-and-play nature, this game is not only one of the best one of the best on the system but one of the few great licensed games to come out of any game company. And with a solid score of 9 out of 10, this game just simply cannot be recommended enough.
