Storyline

Darkwing Duck has been summoned by the chairman of HUSH, J. Gander-Hooter, for another daredevil mission. Four of Saint Carnards most notorious villains (Moliarty, Tuskerninni, Megavolt and Steelbeak) have joined forces. A secret photo of one of their meetings shows them studying an oil painting. Are they planning art theft or is it something much worse. The criminals have cut the painting into 36 pieces, divided them among themselves and fled back to their own sectors. The chief believes that this painting will reveal the true intentions of the crime bosses. Darkwing Duck 'the terror that flaps in the night' must track down the crooks, recover the pieces and put the painting back together for SHUSH. Written by Shawn Watson

Simple and Slow
14 July 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I love Darkwing Duck (where is the series on DVD?) but this game does not do him justice. The graphics are nice and look wonderful on a wide TV screen but it's a stiff and slow game to play.

What really rattled my chain is that too often a baddie, who is nowhere near you, will take health off you even though he doesn't touch you. Forget ducking (heh heh) out of the way in time because the game is too slow to react. And there is practically no way of attacking the baddies apart from using the gas gun, which has no affect on most of them and runs out pretty quickly.

The story is quite good though and for all that it is pretty to look at and family-friendly it's the gameplay that really lets this one down. I played the Turbo-Grafx version, which has better graphics than the NES and is a more fleshed-out game. But it's the gameplay that matters and if the NES version isn't as stiff then perhaps you should get that one instead of hunting down the increasingly elusive Turbo-Grafx version.
