Duck Hunt is a light-gun game by Nintendo originally released on the NES in 1984. It was later ported to the Vs. System, MSX, and emulated on the Wii U.

I first played this game when my brother and I bought the NES Action Set around 1988. The game was fun for awhile, but we quickly became bored of it.

On interesting thing I found while playing with a debugger is the programmers actually trapped the game to give a game over if you reach level 100 rather than having infinite play or a kill screen.
