North American NES box.

DuckTales, known in Japan as わんぱくダック夢冒険, Wanpaku Dakku Yume Boken, "Naughty Ducks Dream Adventures", is a platform action adventure game created by Capcom and first released on the NES in 1989.

I remember being interested in this game because it was pretty popular in Nintendo advertising, and because I enjoyed the television show. However, nobody I knew owned the game at the time, so I didn't end up playing it in earnest until around 2010.

Status

I do not own the game, but have beaten it on the NES on easy mode.

Review

  • Overall: 5/10
  • Best Version: NES

Good

  • The graphics are fantastic, and accurately depict the various DuckTales characters.
  • A lot of effort was made to include a lot of DuckTales imagery, which rarely happens in a tie-in game.
  • Despite the game showing up on lists as being one of the easiest NES games on the platform, I think the game offers a pretty good challenge for a first-time player.
  • Each area has a fair amount of hidden treasure and rooms which add to the replay value.

Bad

  • The mine cart riding portion is kind of annoying. It requires very accurate timing on a jump, and, if you succeed, Scrooge watches his Nephews fall to their death!
  • The difficulty settings don't increase the complexity of the game, they just cause enemies to deal more damage. This is a lazy difficulty setting.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
