SuperDuck is a very exciting game for Windows Phone, which successfully combines two genres - platformer and puzzle. The main character of the game is super-agent Duck who has to save little ducklings and send them home. These yellow kiddies roam the locations from corner to corner and have no idea how to get into their burrow. They are so short that can climb only one step of a block, and anything above that is an insurmountable obstacle for them.
Our superhero is so strong that he is capable of jumping high and even carrying one block or another object at any distance. Having picked up a free block from one place, he can settle it in another, and thus build a ladder by means of which ducklings can overcome an obstacle. In the game there are electronic doors, light and heavy blocks, underground ventilation systems and spare parts to them, as well as springs and even bombs.
Gameplay featuresBy the way, while the main character can carry light blocks at any distance, the heavier ones he can only push in front of him. All these you have to use in the right place at the right time, otherwise you just get tired of restarting the game. Not that anybody attempts the life of the main character and his charges. It's just due to your carelessness that you or ducklings may find yourself in a dead end from which it will be impossible to get out.
For example, before you blow up the bomb you need to push other ones away from the epicenter, or they will explode too, and you will no longer be able to destroy the remaining obstacles. When going down into deep pits, you need to take one block with you in order to place it under superhero's feet so he could jump upon a snout. The game does not require lightning-quick actions, and there is absolutely nowhere to rush. You are to repeatedly wander from one corner of the game world to another, so make sure that you have a sufficient amount of time before you run the game.
ResumeSuperDuck ControllingControlling the main character is to be performed by using a multipositional joystick and three buttons. The joystick is responsible for walking, the right lower button is for jumping, the centre button allows you to raise and put down the blocks, bombs and other light objects, and the top button is for acting. The graphics of the game are not bad, but you cannot call them perfect by any stretch of imagination. It can be compared with the graphics of 16-bit video game console but not more than that. The sound in the game is great, and it goes well with the gameplay. You can download the SuperDuck game absolutely free.
