Last month, the remastered version one of my favorite games, Day of the Tentacle, was on sale. This month, the remastered version of another one of my favorite games is on sale. Duck Tales!
The Xbox marketplace currently has the Duck Tales remastered game for only $3.74.
From the website:
DuckTales: Remastered is a hand-crafted, beautiful reimagining of one of the most cherished 8-bit titles of all time. Go back to one of the golden ages of gaming, but now refined with a level of detail that will please the most hardened devoted Disney or retro Capcom fan, alike. Featuring hand-drawn animated sprites, authentic Disney character voices talent and richly painted level backgrounds from the classic cartoon TV series, Scrooge McDuck and family come to life like never before. The gameplay retains the authenticity of its 8-bit predecessor, simple and fun, with slight modifications to improve gameplay flow and design. Embark on an authentic DuckTales adventure, as Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews; Huey, Dewey and Louie travel to exotic locations throughout the world in their quest to retrieve the five Legendary Treasures.
I used to play this game for hours and hours. I loved how you can use the cane as a pogo stick or a hockey stick, and how you can bounce across treasure.
It’s an all around fun game and the original still has a huge replay value–so I can’t wait to try this version.
It’s also a strange coincidence for me. I was just talking about this game yesterday and the beautiful “moon level” music.
The Duck Tales game was previously not backwards compatible. However, they’ve fixed that and you can play this digital download on either the 350 or the One.
