Review of Duck Life (Flash Game)

Review of Duck Life (Flash Game)

Duck Life is the first game in the Duck Life video game series, released in 1999 for Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, Playstation, and Sega Saturn. Released later as a flash game online, that is the version I tried out.

In Duck Life, you train your duck to win races so that you can collect enough money to save the farm. The beginning of the instructions offered on coolmathgames.com are: "The future of the farm is in your hands! Train your duck to run, fly and swim its way to victory so you can save the farm with your riches. Level up your duck through the different training courses until its skills are sharp enough to enter a race. There are four areas you’ll need to boost before your duck is ready to race: running, swimming, flying, and energy.""

The graphics are cute and about what you would expect from a flash game. Considering that it doesn't get much better in this format, I rate the graphics:

4/5

The gameplay is rather addicting. You choose from a series of mini-games, which are surprisingly difficult and surprisingly fun. They were made even more difficult, unfortunately, by my lagging computer. You mean it can't even handle a flash game? 

You then enter a race, choosing from a variety of difficulties and a variety of stages. The race will end very quickly if you try entering it too soon, because you will run out of stamina. It can be nerve-wracking to watch. Overall, I rate the gameplay:

4/5. 

Duck Life is an online flash game, so it's free, meaning the affordability is automatically rated at a:

5/5.

The replayability in Duck Life is difficult for me to say much about since I only just recently played it, which, considering its popularity and how much I like ducks is surprising. Anyway, based on how I feel about it, I can guess that it has somewhat high replayability, especially if taking into account, again, its popularity. 

4/5

Overall, just simply judging the game as it is, as well as going easy on it because it's a flash game, I rate the game a:

4.5/5

And that makes the average score in the end, about a:

4.5.

That's Duck Life. Thank you for reading! Happy quacking!
