Nerdversity Reviews: Ducktales (NES)


There were many cartoons, TV shows, movies and more, that were turned into NES Video games. Some of these had come from the Disney Afternoon.


DuckTales was released by Capcom in 1989. It was built on the now classic Mega Man architecture and improved it in so many ways. The fact that Uncle Scrooge can pick from any number of stages, including Aztec temples, the moon and Transylvania.


Scrooge plays like Mega Man. His attacks are a pogo bounce on the cane and a golf swing. The object of the game is to amass a fortune of over $10 million to unlock the bonus ending for the game. The soundtrack is considered by many to be the best on the NES.
