Duck Game is….a game. It’s a little hard to describe, but it’s pretty much a 2D arena fighter were you play as ducks, and if that doesn’t sound interesting to you, I don’t know what will.
The Basic premise of the game is that you play as a duck, you pick a hat, and then kill your opponents, and the first person to make 10 points wins. Sounds simple, right? Will it is, but that’s actually a good thing. You see, in Duck Game, one hit kills you. I mean, you can equip armor, but that really doesn’t help you, so really your life depends on every single move that you make, and it in turn makes Duck Game a really tense game. While the formula sounds stale and repetitive, it really isn’t. Duck Game is just one of those addicting games that’s just really fun to play. The controls are really nice and smooth, you jump with A, pick stuff up/throw stuff with Y, shoot stuff with X, and you can even quack if you press the B button.
The other great thing about Duck Game is that it’s fair. Experience doesn’t matter too much, since it’s a one-hit kill game, so even if you’re a new player it’s fairly easy to pick this game up and get the hang of it. The only real downside for Duck Game is that the player community is small, and not the friendliest. People either get mad or irritating really quickly, either rage quitting if you’re winning or insulting you if you’re losing, which takes away a lot of the fun from the game, and while not everyone is like this, a large majority of the player-base is. Another problem is that it is a very small community, as I mentioned earlier, so it takes a very long time to find a match in the game, if you even find one at all.
But despite those negatives, that doesn’t mean that Duck Game isn’t worth getting, because it is. If you are even fairly interesting in getting this game, please do so, because it has the potential to be an amazing online game, all it needs is a larger, friendlier community.
