As to my utter amazement we've just learnt of the release of a fantastic C64 platformer game originally by Hi-Tec in 1992 that never saw the light of day, until now! After 18 years worth of searching by Games That Weren't, they are proud to announce the fully recovered 'Daffy Duck - And The Great Paint Caper' which scored a massive 95% review from Zzap 64. Also according to GTW this game was to be one of Hi-tec's first premier range titles making great use of a recent licence agreement with Warner Bros. However all was not well as the game never appeared on the shelves, especially with Hi-Tec going under. But today the game is finally here, as according to Onslaught who have big fixed, added a trainer and more, they've released the Holy Grail of C64 games, Daffy Duck +3DS!
What an incredible game this is, and one that every C64 gamer should load up and play right now. It features many of the original Warner Bro's characters such as Porky Pig and Roger Rabbit in an action platformer that is a huge joy to play. The graphics are of very high grade with impressive building detail right down to the sprite characters themselves. There are also enemies to avoid and items to pick up with an inclusive great soundtrack which is sure to be a SID hit in the days to come. I for one am really impressed by what Games That Weren't have found and also the release by Onslaught. So download it today, and play a game that may well have been one of the best C64 games if it had actually been released in the 80's!
