The gameplay retains the authenticity of its 8-bit predecessor; simple and fun, with slight modifications to improve gameplay flow and design. Embark on an authentic DuckTales adventure, as Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie travel to exotic locations throughout the world in their quest to retrieve the five Legendary Treasures.

A fantastic platformer based on the NES title. Tight controls and beautiful quasi 3D backgrounds with 2D sprites gives this game a unique style that gives depth to the (admittedly few) levels. This game also boasts a high skill ceiling with a harder setting for the controls that allows for greater manipulation of the platforming, important if you want to beat the game on extreme difficulty which requires the harder controls to be enabled. Each level is usually started with a sort of mini collect-a-thon that forces the user to explore a large amount of the level sometimes retracing areas to see other pathways or hidden items. While this can get redundant at times it is never really overused and is fairly straight forward. The levels end with a boss fight that is in my opinion the most fun part of the game. The boss fights are all unique and focus on pattern recognition which means it could take a few attempts before you know a bosses attacks well enough to take them down. All in all it is a great game for fans of the 2D platformer and fans of Ducktales, but outside of that might not appeal to everyone.
I consider Capcom as a lazy company who likes to make money not putting too much effort into their products, this usually proves right in terms of re-editions or other remasters in the title. Luckily this time the developers tried to please the fans. The game is gorgeous with redrawn sprites that look simply amazing and plays as good as it did in the 90s. Amazing platformer you must try for yourself.
DuckTales Remastered is a remake of the 1989 NES game with new graphics, voice acting from the original cast, and an updated version of the soundtrack. Other than those changes the game is very similar to the original with the same five levels, only with you being stopped for some voiced dialogue with series characters. It's an ok game but it ends up being very short and the controls don't always feel as responsive as they should. It would have been nice if the original game was included as an extra, partly because I'd actually rather play that one. For the price and the lack of additional features or extras, I wouldn't recommend it at full price unless you have nostalgia for hearing the old series voice actors again.
A very good remaster of an excellent game and well worth getting if you want a simple fun platformer. The character art is beautiful, the music is pleasant and a lot of work was put in to please fans of the show and the character. This is a real treat and worth the money.
This game always reminded me of the Rayman, the first one I played for PSX. The controls are pretty much the same too, and it works great. The music is evolving and wraps a very well polished remaster. Don't be fooled by the looks, age doesn't matter. With this title, you'll have fun! Quack.
