One of the first games I played on the Nintendo NES was Duck Hunt. Many an evening was spent with a blaster in my hand aiming at pixelated fowl on the TV.
Now you can recreate those halcyon days on your Palm thanks to this new version of Duck Hunt. The game sees you take on the role of a hunter, shooting down as many drakes as you can within the three minute time limit. The more ducks you kill, the more your score.
Duck Hunt is a simple concept with a simple control system. All you need to do is tap the ducks with your stylus as they fly past the screen. You'll need to reload your ammo after so many shots by clicking on the 'Reload' button in the bottom corner. Be careful not to hit the precious red pigbirds or the fishermen, or you will lose points.
The graphics and music in Duck Hunt are great fun and the gameplay is pretty addictive. The only drawback is that the game becomes quite repetitive after a while. The backgrounds change as you progress through Duck Hunt, but there's little variety in the terms of the targets or the gameplay.
Duck Hunt is very well presented and it's amusing diversion for a while, but there's little diversity to keep you coming back to the game.
