North American box art.

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.

Status

  • By getting extremely close to the television, I can play indefinitely.

Review

  • Overall: 2/10
  • Best Version: Vs. System

Good

  • For the first few minutes play the game, you'll probably enjoy yourself.
  • The cartoon graphics are kind of nice, and there is a noticeable difference in tone between the ducks and clay pigeons.
  • The game has some nice memorable jingles.
  • The Vs. System adds an additional type of game play and allows you to shoot the stupid giggling dog!

Bad

  • The game quickly becomes dull and repetitive.

Ugly

  • All of the game is dully similar. Although there are three modes, you're essentially doing the exact same thing in each. There just isn't much content.
