Who doesn’t love Daffy Duck? My kids now own quite a few DS games, and my 4-year-old plays this as much, if not more, than the more expensive games. It’s really funny, even if it is in a comically cruel way. Over the course of the game, players get to poke, throw, chase, feed, and chop Daffy with their stylus in a series of games and situations. It has a more interactive feel because of the way Daffy responds directly to the player in response to what they are doing to and around him. Good, Silly fun.

For anyone who is a fan of classic Looney Tunes, the very concept of this game should be quite enticing. In the original Duck Amuck cartoon, Daffy Duck is terrorized by the animator, who messes with him in all sorts of ways. Duck Amuck for the DS attempts to recreate the cartoon as a game, and does so remarkably well. Many of the lines and gags for the cartoon are reused here, but they feel more endearing than recycled. Such is the nature of nostalgia.
Once you get started with the game, though, you find that it is simply a collection of hit-and-miss minigames, which are accessed by poking, moving, or otherwise irritating Daffy and the background. Some of these minigames are enjoyable, and others are less so, but at the very least you’ll be motivated to finish the game in order to see what Daffy does as a result. Ultimately, your goal is to win enough games to infuriate Daffy, bringing the game to an ending similar to the original cartoon.
Other than the fact that some of the minigames are not as enjoyable as others, my main gripe with Duck Amuck is the overall lack of content. The game comes to an end within 6 or 7 games, so that you reach the ending in about a half-hour. Of course, there are considerably more than 7 games available, and after reaching the end, the game promptly brings you back to the beginning to play again. Once all of the games are accounted for, the total package is still underwhelming for the original price.

I bought this for my 5 year old for Christmas. He loved erasing and teasing the duck. Also loved the feature where you can record your voice and have the duck replay it in different tones. He didn’t put the game down for a couple of days when he finally lost his stylist pen & had to put it away.
