Duck Out - work in progress
« on: 22:34, 04 May 15 »
This seems to have slipped under everyone's radar, but CNGSoft has been working on a CPC conversion of the Spanish Spectrum game Duck Out:

And here's a YouTube video that he uploaded back in February:

A game that stars a cartoon duck that batters enemies with a frying pan has to be interesting! :laugh:

It's been one million years since I last posted here (university is a harsh mistress) and I'm positively surprised to find this thread!

That video is a bit out of date, however. This one's newer:
"Duck Out" @ CPC - 20150504 - YouTube
"Duck Out" @ CPC - 20150504 - YouTube
The music (recycled from "Justin") is a placeholder, I'm still waiting for proper tracks to be written, because I'm no musician  :( But well, at least the game is now faster than on the Spectrum (how could they somehow make it slower on a machine with half the VRAM size escapes me) and more complete: the original had no scoring, no sound, no music... several things I discovered during the development of the port (for example, unused graphics) suggest that the original game was badly rushed and released.

EDIT: I kept editing the post because the video link kept getting mangled  ???

"AY-chromosome"? I've seen more intelligent spammer bots... Now I'm not sure. Is this legit or not?

Oh well. "Duck Out" was indeed featured in RetroMadrid 2015:
