Good old side scrollersergebelanger22 | Jan. 21, 2014 | See all sergebelanger22's reviews »
You miss the time where side scroller fitted with nearly impossible to complete? This is the game for you.
You want to play with your kids? Fine, select Easy and you will have unlimited lives. You are not able to complete the game in one shot? Play on Medium. This will save the game after each level completed. You want the ultimate? Play on hard.
This is the exact same game as the original, but in HD. There is no little extra. Just do not expect anything else. If you agree with this. Play it. This game is simply made for everyone. From the nostalgics to the kids. Our Scrooge loves to speak though, but you can skip the cinematics if you are tired of them. There are 5 levels and completing these 5 unlocks the final level. You can unlock some artworks by getting money throughout the levels. However, unlocking everything needs completing the levels multiple times.
Globally, if you like the side scrollers, try this one. This will remind you the good old time.

I have never played the original Duck Tales. At the time it was out I was playing a different game called Duck Tales where you have been able to choose a treasure you want to go for, do the mini-game there (either some platformer or taking pictures of rare animals), fly from point A to B controlling Launchpad and so on. So to be honest I was really disappointed that this game is the remake of that other one. But anyway personal woes aside the game is an ok platformer. Hard to say anything else about it since that is pretty much all that is. If you are looking for a game that is all ages or you want to have it for the pure nostalgia value than I think the price is reasonable but if you would like to just get and play a platformer probably you have much better options to go for.

This game brings back memories.The remastered version is so pretty and good.You can beat the game in a couple of hours and those will be very fun hours.A really fun platformer that should not be missed by DuckTales fans.The voice acting is really great and done very well.Some levels are kind of annoying because there are too many enemies and they could take a lot of your health pretty quickly but nonthless this game is fun and i recommend you take a look at it.
An amazing nostalgia trip for anyone who remembers the cartooncommanderhavoc | Dec. 2, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »
When I was young, I had the chance to see the really REALLY awesome cartoon when it was on TV here in Sweden and I absolutely loved it, along with that addictive theme song, it will never leave! And this remake of the classic NES game does a really great job at capturing the spirit of the cartoon as it feels like an old and lost episode that was never aired, they even managed to get several of the original voice actors to join in and reprise their parts as in the cartoon. They even added in cutscenes for the game and while many complain about them, they still are great and some even provide explanations as to what is going on, like how Scrooge, Fenton and Gyro Gearloose are able to breath on the moon and such. And of course, the theme of the cartoon is included in the game in the credits and don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself wanting to sing along to it as it is that catchy.

I was following the production of this game since the 1st announcement, and let me tell you that it was like a love story, beginning with wayforward people loving this game since his nes roots till the jump in the wagon of the original background artists at half the production, everything since the animations, the music and the animation fluidity is amazing, and also makes my heart warm with the original voice of Scrooge Mcduck, the gameplay is perfect and the music will bring your inner child to tears, bring some snaks and sit in the floor very close to the tv while playing, instant time travel to your childhood
