A from Just Adventure

Go Quackers With Donald Duck!!!

As Donald Duck, you begin the game in Gyro Gearloose's lab where you learn the terrible news that Daisy's been kidnapped by Merlock the wizard. Now Donald must set out to find his beloved through a series of five worlds all found within Gyro's Lab. Yet before you can access them all, you must first activate the teleporters by finding the scattered pieces of Gyro's reflector dish. Whether it's avoiding spiders and bats in Magica's Haunted Manor or negotiating the fallen beams and precarious ledges in Duckburg, you must press on through the individual stages to confront each level's boss character. Defeat the villain and you'll be one step closer to your eventual showdown with Merlock. Fortunately for you, Donald has a few moves he can perform, which include the usual running, jumping, punching and the always popular karate kick in midair.

Donald Duck is known for his feisty temper, and this element of his character has been included in the game through the life meter. Whenever Donald takes a hit from an enemy, he'll start to get angry -- visibly depicted by the position of the hat on his head as well as with his movements. His mood will improve, however, if you can find a milkshake or glass of orange juice within a level. Other items to collect include stars, toys, and packages.

Making cameos in the game are Donald's nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie (whose toys are a source of power-ups), inventor Gyro Gearloose, and competitive cousin Gladstone Gander, who also fancies himself as Daisy's champion.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Jacob Sluganski

"...If Goin' Quackers starred anyone but Donald Duck--whom Jacob and I agreed many older gamers would be embarrassed to be seen playing and therefore wouldn't even give this game a glance--it would be considered an instant classic. For Ubi Soft has assimilated the best of every platform game ever developed and combined them into Goin' Quackers."

"While there is nothing inventive in Goin' Quackers, it is as well-done as any Sonic the Hedgehog or Crash Bandicoot game. The most memorable level is easily a homage to the famous Indiana Jones chased by the boulder scenario, only this time around Donald is running from a crazed truck driver, and if he is not nimble enough, well, it is pressed duck for dinner as Donald slides down your monitor screen. The graphics are beautiful and the voices live up to your cartoon memories. It is perfect entertainment for youngsters and younger players who have not yet been jaded by playing hundreds of similar games."
