Product Description

One of the most cherished 8-bit titles of all time, DuckTales, returns with the digital release of DuckTales: Remastered this Summer for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC.

DuckTales: Remastered is a hand-crafted, beautiful reimagining of one of the most iconic 8-bit titles. Go back to one of the golden ages of gaming, but now refined with a level of detail that will please the most hardened Disney or retro Capcom fan. Featuring hand-drawn animated sprites, original Disney character voices talent and richly painted level backgrounds from the classic cartoon TV series, Scrooge McDuck and family come to life like never before. 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.

Key Features:

  • Relive the classic TV series from the 1980’s – Follow the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, as they fend off enemies including the Beagle Boys and Magica DeSpell, on their quest to obtain the five most impressive treasures from across the world
  • Redefined hand-drawn visuals – Developer WayForward have taken all the original visuals from the 8-bit game and significantly enhanced and recreated them as hand-drawn sprites, across a backdrop of beautifully re-envisioned level backgrounds
  • Authentic Disney experience – Some of your favorite Disney characters are brought to life by many of the original voice-over talent from the classic DuckTales TV series and stage backgrounds take their inspiration from the classic TV episodes.
  • Learn to pogo – In an all new tutorial level, learn the basic playing skills, including Scrooge McDuck’s iconic pogo jump and cane swing
  • Visit the museum – Track your achievements, progress and status on the leader boards in Scrooge McDuck’s new Museum
  • Cash in your coins at Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin – A new playable area, Scrooge’s Money Bin allows players to track the amount of wealth accumulated and even take a swim through his latest spoils
  • Digitally enhanced soundtrack – Built from the original versions, the soundtrack for DuckTales: Remastered creates more modern amplified iterations of the classic melodies

5.0 out of 5 stars You need a STEAM account August 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
In my rush to order this game, I missed the barely visible reference to needing a steam account under the "DRM" section of the description. I already have and like Steam, so no big deal. The product page should be a little clearer though. The download referenced is merely a STEAM authentication code. If I had known this, probably would have just bought it directly through Steam, which would've been easier.

For those that may not know, this game is based on the popular Ducktales afternoon cartoon show of the Disney Afternoon series of the eighties/early nineties.

This game is great, a nostalgic look back at one of the greatest 8 bit NES games ever. I have had a blast with the couple hours I've spent with it. When this game was mentioned at Wayforward's (the game developer) comic con panel, they said they brought back many of the show's original voice talents, one of which was Alan Young, who is now 93, who voices Scrooge McDuck. The music has also been totally re-vamped, still has those shreds of 8 bit midi awesomeness weaved in there though: AMAZING. It has a ton of unlockables that allow you to open up the original 8 bit theme music and play the game to that instead! It also has Steam achievements, which I love.

If you don't know what DuckTales is as either the show or the 8 bit videogame, you should skip this. This is not the greatest game ever as I've seen lots of critics pounce on it for design choices (it is a 2D platformer after all.) They are missing the point. This game immediately took me back to coming home from school to an empty house (mom and dad both worked) and feeling that awesome anticipation for watching this show (along with the rest of the Disney Afternoon).

When I was a kid, this Disney show was one of my most favorite. Not only did I not know that the show ran for only 100 episodes, or that it inspired a Darkwing Duck spin-off, but I didn't even know that they had their own video games, including a sequel, both which were made by Capcom, the same company that made Mega-Man games, and the VS Calvin games.

Scripts McDuck, his nephews, Huey, Duey and Louie, His niece, Webbigail, Webby for short, go on a treasure hunt when they discover a treasure map hidden away inside Scrooge' s painting, after saving it from Scrooge' s enemies, the Be able Boys.

With help from his friends, including Launch pad McQuack, Duckworth, Mrs. Beakly, Buba Duck, and even Gizmo-Duck, Scrooge begins his hunt for the treasures that are revealed on the treasure map. Along the way, although he gets help from his friends, and his nephews, he gets a run-in from his two old foes; a lady witch-like duck named Magica DeSpell and his foe, a Scotland duck named Flint-Heart Clompgold, who will stop at nothing to get the treasure before HE does..., unless Scrooge beats them to it first.

The fun thing about this "Remastered" version is the fact that you can jump into, and swim around in Scrooge' s money bin. The downside? Well, even though you get jewels that get you money, they have background art, concept art, even TV art that you can WASTE that money on. As far as I'm concerned, I may not be Scrooge McDuck myself..., but I don't have to be to know that that would actually be breast thing that he himself would ever waste HIS money on.

Despite all of that, this isn't that bad of a game. If the original game, which I myself haven't played, was good, than this version... is the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing! August 14, 2013
This game is incredible on all accounts. Not only did they improve on the video and the sound effects, but the music is stellar as well. This remastered version takes a filet mignon that is Ducktales on the NES and turns into a 10 course fancy feast. Every stage is lengthened with extra play scenes with cinematic scenes throughout. All the missing pieces that were never explained in the NES are explained here.

Be prepared to have a very fast computer as this game is a CPU and video memory hog. The video is that good that it needs all that power. This game is worth every penny. I highly recommend it if you are from the 8-bit or even 16-bit era.

5.0 out of 5 stars favorite Wii U game September 1, 2013
This is actually my favorite Wii U game. I remember playing DuckTales back in 1989. It's still a fun platformer and this remake does it right.

THE GOOD

WayForward treated the game with respect. It added beautiful 3D backgrounds, bold 2D character sprites, and adorable cutscenes. The platforming isn't Mario, but the unique mechanic of the pogo stick makes it fun. Some people have complained about the cutscenes, but guess what? You can skip them very easily! In fact, I'd say the game is generally very good about letting you skip cutscenes and scoreboards at the end when compared to Mario.

THE BAD

The only bad thing about the game is that the jumping mechanic from ropes doesn't work all that well. This is usually not a problem except for the last stage (which I am sure was not in the original game), which requires a lot of ripe-jumping.

THE VERDICT

I love that WayForward remade this game. I only hope we get more like this (Darwking Duck and Chip & Dale deserve remakes too).

I really like this version. They improved the graphics by a large margin and got a bunch of the cast to come back and do lines for the cutscenes. Read more
