Duck Out - Beat em up Amstrad CPC game gets a new tease!


At the beginning of this month ( May ) we gave everyone the heads up of a new Amstrad game in the works called 'Duck Out', which was to be ported from the ZX Spectrum but looking oh so much better with improved speed. First released in 1989 as a 2D side-scrolling beat em up, whereby the player controlled a duck with a frying pan, has now got a new trailer which shows just how good an Amstrad CPC can scroll while looking to be oh so much fun too!


According to the developer cngsoft, the music recycled from Justin is a placeholder while he waits for proper tracks to be written as stated below.

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
