Duck Game for PC and PS4 is a two-dimensional arcade game developed for multiplayer matches. It is a first work of a Canadian developer Landon Podbielski. Original Duck Game debuted in 2014 for Ouya console with Android operating system, and then an enhanced version appeared in 2015 for PC, with a single player challenge mode.

Game mechanics

Duck Game resembles titles like Samurai Gunn and TowerFall, offering fast-paced multiplayer gameplay on small, closed, two-dimensional arenas. Up to four players controlling cartoon-like ducks can compete on tens of maps, filled with weapons to pick up like shotguns, machine guns or flamethrowers. Due to the size of stages, skirmishes can end after mere seconds. The game rewards skilled players, fast reactions and strategic uses of jumps, dodges and arenas’ design.

The looks of players’ characters can be modified with wide variety of hats. They don’t have any effect on gameplay, being purely esthetical effects changing animations and sounds made by the ducks.

Game modes

Duck Game focuses on multiplayer mode, either online or locally with split screen. A challenge mode can be use to polish one’s skills alone through various minigames, which offer interesting twist on game’s mechanics.

Technical aspects

The game uses colorful, two-dimensional visuals in retro style. Gameplay is accompanied by electronic music and sound effects inspired by classic 16-bit consoles hits.
