ChinnyVision: Review Of Count Duckula 2
« on: 12:07, 30 December 14 »
Is Count Duckula 2 as bad as people say it is? Surely it was just mean old Amstrad Action taking pot shots at a budget software company? Well let's take a look:

Yep, it's so bad I don't even know where to begin. I refuse to call it a game. It's just some code!


As usual all footage running on a real CPC (in this case my 6128)

I looked at the Speccy version, and yes it's a direct port of the game.


It might have been correctly fun if it was as fast as the Spectrum version, but seeing how much it is slow, it must be really painfull.

There is no fun to be had even if it was speeded up. The game design (as far as it exists) is fatally flawed and it's all been thrown together with no care or attention at all.


I believe Your Sinclair also panned it giving it 9%. Sinclair User gave it 6 out of 10, but frankly SU was a joke of a magazine who basically admit the game is rubbish in the review and give it 6 out of 10 anyway.
