Over dit spel

DuckTales: Remastered is een unieke en schitterende nieuwe versie van een van de populairste 8-bit games aller tijden. Ga terug naar de gouden tijd van de videogames en ervaar deze klassieker gedetailleerder dan ooit tevoren. Zelfs de meest doorgewinterde en toegewijde Disney- of Capcom-fan zal versteld staan van de authentieke tekeningen, de originele stemacteurs en de kleurrijke achtergronden uit de klassieke tekenfilms waardoor Dagobert Duck en de rest van de familie van je scherm spatten. De gameplay is nog even eenvoudig en vermakelijk als die van zijn 8-bit voorganger, maar met kleine aanpassingen voor een betere, vloeiende speelervaring. Ga op een onvervalst DuckTales-avontuur waarin Dagobert Duck en zijn neefjes Kwik, Kwek en Kwak exotische locaties over de hele wereld bezoeken in hun zoektocht naar de vijf Legendarische Schatten.

I'm not here to complain about the final boss chrashes. The broblem I have is that this game is painfully short for a 15 dollar game. Still an incredible platformer... but a short one.

Game plays well on newer and older systems, however you CANNOT beat the game as it crashes at the cutscene, during the fight, and after the cutscene. It's a known issue and the Devs and Publisher (Wayforward and Capcom respectively) Will not act on this bug. It's been years and no fix.

Remove this broken game from being sold Steam, FFS

Don't get me wrong. DuckTales: Remastered is a whole lot of fun and the time I spent playing it was greatly enjoyable. The problem is that in its current state it likes to crash at the final boss meaning you can work your way through a particularly difficult level, and then be forced to quit and start over for whatever reason. This happened to me twice and there doesn't seem to be any word of a fix in the future.

Pick this up on a console if you own one. Otherwise skip altogether.

Do you remember Chrismas of 89. I do. It was when I got Duck Tales on the NES. Thats all I did was play for the next few weeks. Nostalgia. It was one of the best titles on the NES. Duck Tales was one of the more creative games on the system and along with Little Nemo they take me back to when I was a kid... So they remade Duck Tales. Good.
the good. First the music is great, and the voice work of the orginial cast of the show is very very cool. The game play is mostly untouched so thats nice and the controls feel tight. The graphics are cell now and look like the show. So for a 2D remake it has excelled in presentation. But...
The negitves are minor but annoying. The dialog. Ehh... You will listen to at times two minutes of dialog. This wouldn't bother me but most of the time it is in the middle of the game. You can not just speed by it either. So the game comes to a stop, where as the orginal was nonstop. Infact there are other slight changes as well. Rather than collecting enough money to progress you will have to collect things instead. Another thing is this game is much easier. The NES had a difficulty curve to most of its games. Duck Tales was one of the easiest games on the system. This remake is much easier. I never died. I fired up my NES and yeah I died here and there. It's not the Remakes fault but a modern controller and more health pick ups do make it easier. This isn't hold your hand easy, but not hard. Oh and theres unlocks, cause of course.
The theres the reports of Nvidia cards freezing at the end. I got through it no problem.
This is a good game. Really good. It reminded me more of why I liked the show as well as the NES game. It does a lot right and does not stray to much from the orginial which is nice. The orginal is still my favorite, but I like this a lot. I dought they will remake Duck Tales 2, but one can hope. Personally I would rather see a Little Nemo remake, but thats just wishful thinking. Now no matter what I do I can not for the life of me get the Duck Tales song out of my head.

Never finished this game. Why? Because multiple times in a row on the last level, the game froze up, The screen freezes up and the music continues to play. It forced me to restart and I had to replay the level again only for it to happen again. Apparently, this is a common issue if you look around for information on it.

This game is like a hurricane. It is set in Duck Burg. There are Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it's a duck blur. They Might solve a mystery, or rewrite history! Oh Love they got the original voices cast from the show to reprise there roles in the game! Huge fan of the game boy version. They really did there home work. Well done.

i doubt i'd recommend this even if not for the widely mentioned game-breaking crash after the final boss. it's certainly charming but i found there wasn't really enough to get all that much enjoyment out of it, and some of the level design choices left a lot to be desired - there was more than one occasion where i would backtrack or come out of a secret room to find an enemy had respawned in a position that meant i HAD to take damage from them before i could get past. i also find it strange that every single gem is invisble and has to be walked past before it appears, meaning you end up doing a LOT of walking back on yourself at sometimes inconvenient moments if you're trying to get everything. it all comes together in a way just makes it a very unfortunately not fun experience.

i would 100% recommend the soundtrack though

UPDATE: Good news, I think I've found a fix! This assumes your using Windows 8. If you go to the steamapps->common folder for Ducktales Remastered and right click the executable (.exe) file, you can run the Compatability Troubleshooter. Doing this seemed to clear up the issue and enabled me to actually finish the game. As such, since the problem proved to be fixable, I'm changing my score to RECOMMENDED.

HOWEVER, I think the points in my original review are still valid. This game is still broken, and it's been left up to the community to fix it. That still royally sucks. Nor can I promise this solution will help everyone. So, this is really more of a CAUTIOUS RECOMMENDATION.

My original NOT RECOMMENDED review follows:

Color me disappointed. Understand, this is actually a really well crafted and loving remake of a classic game based on an equally classic and beloved show. It's challenging, has a fun exploration element to its level design, and is packed to the brim with fan-service. It's a great game--until it breaks right when you defeat the last boss!

This game actually worked great on my system when I first got in 2014, but something went horribly awry in the past 2 years. Maybe because of updates to Steam or Windows, this game breaking glitch was introduced. A few seconds in the forums shows that many people have been having similar problems. Unfortunately, it also seems that nothing has--or ever will be done to correct them. For reasons not entirely clear, official support for the game by Capcom, Wayforward, and Steam seems to have ceased entirely. A sign of the times I suppose.

With that in mind, I can't in good conscious recommend this version of the game. I wholeheartedly believe it's a wonderful game worth checking out. Just not on Steam. If a solution to these issues is ever discovered, though, then maybe I can give the game the MUST BUY review it really deserved. Until then, color me disappointed.

I was a kid when the original came out. And it was one of those NES games that you could beat with one life. But it was still somewhat of a classic. Could a remake be made better? It turns out the answer is "yes". The games fidelity to the original is apparent throughout. The only real change is level redesign and adequate levels of difficulty added. If you wer a fan of the original pick this up. First the nostalgia will be pleasing and then youll realize that there is actually a good game behind all of it.

DuckTales: Remastered is a fun (as long as you play on Easy Mode) 2D platforming game that has been Remastered from the old NES version. The art and graphics are very sharp and look great; furthermore the sound and music are outstanding! Besides the classic theme song, some of the other music is very well done which I was suprised to hear in a game like this. The game is fun and somewhat short if you play on Easy mode; on increased difficulties this game can be very difficult as you have limited lives, less health and if you lose all your lives you have to restart the entire level and lose all your money you have collected so far in the level. This game brings back those good old memories of watching Disney's DuckTales by letting you play through one of their adventures.

Ducktales: Remastered:
-------------------------

About:
--------
I played the original game in the '80 when it came out on the Nintendo 8bit System.
And this game whas amazing in every way !!
Now they made a remastered version and yes they do this very often these times.
Compare to other games they did a superB job with this video game.
All game Devs can take a look at this game so they know how re remake a old game.


Gameplay & Controls:
------------------------
This game is really hardcore and you need to play this often to complete this game.
They made it little bit easier because when you fail the mission / die in a stage you can repeat it.
I remember when you died on the old '80 year version you needed to start all over again.
In the game you can collect extra hart containers and you will need them.
Because the stages as the boss battles are hard as hell.
Controls feel very well and perfect if you compare it to the old game so the game plays lovely.

Graphics & Music:
--------------------
They did a super job with the art and made this game came back to life.
All characters have now high definition sprites and with the story parts this game feels complete after all these years.
I'm a Soundtrack geek and love they did with the soundtracks.
Perfect remix from the old classic music did can not do a better job on that part.

I give this game a score 9.5/10.

I hate to downvote this game, but it freezes on the end boss for a lot of people, including me. It sounds like it's related to Nvidia's newer drivers but I'm not sure.

The game itself is a solid if not particularly impressive affair. The graphics are obviously an improvement over the original, but compared to the recent remake of Castle of Illusion this remaster is kind of disappointing. If you are looking for a great Disney platformer I'd recommend trying that one first.

This is worth picking up for $5 sometime, though, if you are a Disney fan or like 2D platformers. However, I'd hold off until it's patched - otherwise you might not be able to finish it.

I'd love to recommend the game. It's a beautiful game and WayForward and Disney have given it a lot of love. I could write many more paragraphs about how well-crafted the and game is than this review takes.

However I can't recommend it. The game has a catastrophic bug that causes the game to freeze on a significant number of users' machines, including my best PC. It appears to be a problem that is occurring with an increasing portion of new players and one suggested option to reduce (unfortunately not eliminate) the problem is to lower the graphics settings, resolution etc. so it seems likely the issue happens most when the game is played at its best. It is more frustrating still that this freeze happens mostly at the very end of the game.

But the most annoying thing about this is that Capcom are being wilfully neglectful of all of these complaints. Players have repeatedly contacted them about the problem over the last 2 1/2 years. WayForward, the licensed developers, have also tried to communicate with them to offer work on fixing the issue. But all of this is being rejected, so nothing can be done. It turns one of the best games and certainly one of the best platformers of recent years into one of the most aggrivating.

Instead I would recommend looking into other WayForward-developed platformers where they are not restricted in such a way, and where such issues cannot be found. In particular the upcoming Shantae: Half Genie Hero is shaping up to be a wonderful game with similar aesthetics and handling.

I'm not giving this game a negative review because it's a terrible game. I'm giving it a negative review due to a commonly occurring bug that makes the game impossible to beat.
DuckTales: Remastered is a remake (rather than a remaster) of an old NES game that garnered quite a bit of praise back in the days, for its well crafted levels, great soundtrack and fun gameplay. Remastered does not quite hit all the same notes, but the core gameplay is still very fun.

Graphics and sound
If anything, the game actually looks better than the show it's based on. The colours are vibrant, movement is smooth and everything is nicely detailed without feeling cluttered. It "feels" like a cartoon, in a good way. The only area where criticism can really be had is in the animations that sometimes leave a bit to desire. Still, the game is beautiful.
And it's no slouch in the sound department either. All the songs but one are based on the soundtrack of the NES game, but updated to make use of modern hardware. Only a single song is less than stellar, and that's the one that is new to this game. And it's not even a bad song, it just does not fit in with the rest.
And what good is an action game without good sound effects? It "feels" satisfying to jump on enemies. The sound effects have just the right amount of "impact", creating a very satisfying experience. It manages to both stay faithful to its source material (the NES game), and expand on it.
And let's not forget the voice acting. It's great. I did not grow up with the English version of the cartoon, and I still think the voice acting sound just right. This is extra impressive, considering the age of many of the voice actors (remember, this show originally aired back in 1987).

Story
No-one will play this game for its story. It's a forgettable story that adds very little to the overall experience. You're out looking for some special treasures, and need to visit places all over the world, and also the moon, in order to find them. That's really the extent of it.
Sadly, the story delivery often gets in the way of the gameplay. Cutscenes are frequent, and they completely stop the action. It would most likely have been better to just have one bigger cutscene at the start of the level, and then a bigger one at the end, with some chatter between the characters during the levels that don't require you to stop moving.

Gameplay
The game borrows its gameplay from the original NES game, and it's a testament to good design when in 2015 a game that plays like a game from 1989 still is a joy to play. Bouncing on enemies is just as fun now as it was back then.
The levels are heavily inspired by the levels from the NES game, keeping a similar layout. New objectives are added to the levels that basically amount to scavenger hunts, and here is where the game starts showing its faults. The original levels were never designed to be navigated this way, you were supposed to get to certain points in them, and you had a few options in regards to how you got to these points. In the remaster you need to go through almost every part of the level, which results in some strange looping back. It's particularly bad in the first non-tutorial level that you're likely to play, Amazonas, where you were originally meant to either pick the upper or lower rout in the earlier parts of the level, but here need to pick one, then go back through the other and then through one of them again. It breaks the sense of forward momentum, and it's really just a bit dull. All other levels, except for the new one at the end, suffer from this issue to some extent. This adds up to a game with worse level design than the game it's based on.
The final level also feels out of place. Suddenly the style of the level (in terms of how you play it) changes completely. If you've ever played a Mega Man game, then this level will feel familiar, because that's what it feels like. A Mega Man level (and not a well designed one). The soundtrack on this level also feels like something out of Mega Man.

Options?
The options menu is severely lacking. You can't even change the sound levels. It's more or less limited to resolution, AA, language, brightness and two pre-set key combinations for your jump attack. No, you can not even re-bind controls. While graphics options for a game like this is not super important, sound levels and re-binding controlls is just something that I've come to expect from any game with more than a minimal budget.

The big freeze-bug at the end
This is the reason why my review ends up negative. There is a bug near the end that freezes the game. It won't happen for everyone, but the amount of people I've seen reporting this seem to indicate that it's at least a relatively common bug. One that neither WayForward nor Capcom has bothered fixing. Exactly what causes the bug is unknown, but it does not seem to be due to a specific graphics card vendor, OS version or anything like that.

Closing words
Even without the bug, the frequent cutscenes and the frankly not great level design pulls this game down. The core gameplay is really good, but sadly the things surrounding it are not. Had they either stuck with the original level design, or designed brand new levels around the scavenger hunts you're supposed to partake in, then this game could easily have been a winner, but as it stands, it's just an alright game, with great graphics and sound, and a very serious bug near the end that might make it impossible for you to see the last boss.

BEWARE: if you have NVIDIA, with recent drivers, expect to wander in the community hub to find the solution of a freezing game during the last boss.

DuckTales.... so many memories... on the NES system.

Because I belong to that generation that got the chance to play it on it. Besides, I can still remember the song (in French) for Duck Tales, the cartoon. And I still remember the pogo stick, the Amazon and the Moon.

DuckTales Remastered is an improved version of the original game. Oncle Scrooge (or Picsou in French) is searching for a mythical artefact with the help of all the gang (the nephews and niece, the chopper pilot, the crazy inventor) and pitched against some enemies (the witch, the scottish billionnaire, the thiefs). I'm sorry if I'm not giving the English names, as I'm used to Geo Trouvetou, Mystique or Riri, Fifi and Loulou (who are Huey, Dewey and Louie) and as names.

Anyway, dear Scrooge will visit the Amazon, some African mines, a haunted castle in Transylvania, the Everest and the Moon, without forgetting a volcano where the big fight will arrive. If he can jump, he can also use his cane as pogo stick to reach heights or to throw stuff. As part of a classic platformer, you can improve your health or find secret areas with bonuses. The score is determined by the value of the diamonds you've found (whether they're hidden in chests or not). Unless they're in chests, you have to pass on the zone they're to make them appear. But they're only there temporary: you have to take them quickly.

Also, the enemies are typical of the level visited: gorillas, spiders and snakes in the Amazon (without forgetting the tribemen), mummies, bats and ghosts in Transylvania, etc... Each level is ending with a boss to defeat, though some are just mad at you for another story, like the Yeti for example.

Anyway, the good part of the game is that you can unlock art gallery thanks to the money you're accumulating during the levels. If you start a new game, it's not erased, which is great. But during a same playthrough, you can't replay a level. Once it's done, it's done. You can't go back for secrets you've missed or for achievements. Anyway, if you're starting a new game, generally, it's because you want to try it at a higher level.

The graphics are very colorful, anyway, you can't expect a dark setting for a remastering of a game that was already oriented towards children at the time. Everything is well polished..... APART FOR A FREEKING FREEZING BUG FOR PEOPLE WITH NVIDIA CARDS ON THE FINAL BOSS! IMPOSSIBLE TO FINISH THE GAME!

And that's where all the good found in the game is crushed because the developers aren't trying to patch the game for that game-breaking bug. It's just sad that I can't finish the game.

So yeah, while DuckTales isn't perfect as there is only audio in English, that the game is for people having played it and finding some good memories, while DuckTales, despite that, is a very good game until the end, should I thumb it down or up?

I'm tempted to thumb it down but I've enjoyed it the game for 90% of it, apart the bug. So, well, I'll thumb it up but stay aware of the problem.

The game is a pretty decent platformer, nothing amazing but good enough at what it does. This in itself would not be enough for me to give a negative review. However gamebreaking bugs are a very valid reason for a negative review.


The bug occurs at the final boss. The game freezes sometimes in the cutscene before the final battle sometimes into the final battle or if you can make it through it without freezing in the cutscene afterwards. This bug has existed for approx 2 years and will not be patched as there is some license issue with Capcom(the publishers) Wayforward( the devs) and Disney (the license holder). On a side note I had very similiar problems with another Wayforward game Double Dragon Neon so I will be taking extra care when looking into any of their games in the future.

I did manage to find a workaround to enable me to finish the game but it was a little awkward and less computer savvy people may be hesitant to try it. And frankly it ruined what would have otherwise been a fairly pleasant experience and I or other paying customers should not have to go to these lenghts to play their game.

For anyone that is unlucky enough to have bought this and is outside the refund window heres what I did to get it working but YMMV.

1. Launch the game
2. Alt Tab out of the game and open task manager
3. Find Ducktales.exe, right click and go to Set Affinity...
4. Change the affinity from 4(For me, it may be 2 or more depending on your system) to just 1 of the CPUs (I doubt it matters but I used CPU 0
5. Play the game until you get to the boss and the cutscene starts, pause the game and skip cutscene. ( You can watch it on Youtube )
6. Fight and win final boss battle and when the cutscene starts pause again and skip the cutscene.
7. Thereis a short escape scenatio to play through then. The game froze on me during this the first time but I managed to get through it on the first attempt the second go. I have no idea if the lenght of time I had been on the scene caused the crash but I would suggest trying to get through it as quickly as possible.

So to sum up do not buy this game, it is broken and will never be fixed. I am just glad I picked it up on sale.

DuckTales Remastered is a 2D Platformer. It's, as the title implies, a remaster of the original 8-Bit NES game DuckTales. The story is about Scrooge McDuck and his 3 nephews searching for ancient treasures around the world to become the richest duck in the world.

The game is a rather simplistic platformer, but it's charming and fun in lots of ways. You play as Scrooge, who has the ability to jump on his cane like a pogo stick. This gives Scrooge lots of extra height, and it's also the main way to defeat any enemies in the way and cross dangerous obstacles. The pogo jump can be done indefinitely unless you take damage, so it's pretty much the primary bit of platforming you're gonna do. Gameplay doesn't have lots of depth, but it does a good job at what it aims to do: Controls are super precise, platforming bits are fun, game is moderately challenging, and enemies are a threat. So that's what matters most, all of it's gameplay mechanics are solid.




DuckTales consists of 7 levels (Including the tutorial level). You go around exploring, trying to find all the gems and diamonds you can, then subsequently fighting the boss at the end of each stage to get the valued treasure. Every level also has some items you need to find to advance to the next section, which encourages the exploration aspect. Now, don't go around thinking it's gonna be like a Metroidvania, because it's not. It has little tidbits of exploration, but it's not very abundant. The good news is that each level has it's own enemies and gimmicks to it, so you'll never feel like you're playing the same thing over and over again. They're not very long, nor are they very big. But like I said, for what there is, it's good and gets the job done.




The visuals and soundtrack for this game are incredible. Every song, excluding the new levels, are remixes from the NES game, and they sound spectacular. Jake Kaufman, who does the OST for Shovel Knight and Shantae, did a fantastic job on the music here. The graphics really do capture the spirit of the original DuckTales cartoon, each of the characters are hand drawn 2D while the background and objects are 3D. The 3D bits don't look as good as the 2D characters, but they work well to make a cartoonish and fitting environment and all that.

Speaking of which, the game has LOTS of cutscenes, so it kinda feels like an episode of the show if you wanna look at it like that. Some of the original voice actors from the TV show are present, such as Alan Young playing Scrooge. (The dude is in his 90s, mad respect.) However, some people might not like the cutscenes since they show up a lot in the middle of gameplay, whether it's reaching a new area or finding a collectible. They're very abundant, but many felt like it interrupted gameplay. (Tip, you can skip them my pausing and pressing "Skip Cinematic".)



The game has 4 difficulties: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Extreme. Every gamer will probably find their preferred difficulty whether you wanna take a stroll through the game or ramp it up to hardcore levels. The harder difficulty you choose, the less health related items there will be, which will instead be replaced by more money or 1-Ups. Also, after you beat a level, you'll get some bonus cash for it. The higher your difficulty, the more your cash bonus is. Extreme can only be unlocked after you beat the game on Hard, and it takes after the NES game. You have to beat it all in one sitting, and if you get a game over, you need to start from the very beginning of the game.



So anyway, DuckTales is a good remake of the NES game and a solid platformer with not much depth to it. It's also rather short, clocking in about 2-3 hours for 1 playthrough. However, if you're into platformers or just wanna spend some time on a pretty decent game, go get it on a sale.

7/10

Be warned, this game crashes at the final boss.

I would love to recommend this game, but they will not be patching this
anytime soon. It is broken for what seems to be a random pool of users.

Check the forums.

As it stands you will not be able to finish the game without going
through some hoops to do it. And even then, they might not work.

Good luck.

That said, it is a fun game, and a very faithful reproduction of the original.

The game is great.
As a huge fan of Donald Duck's world, I certainly found this very entertaining. The soundtrack is splendid, makes the game go much more with a flow through the levels. Though, as many other writes in their reviews, the crash at the final boss makes the game more or less unbeatable for us Nvidia users. Not much one can do there, except for playing on another computer or switching to an AMD graphics card. The "not recommended" tag is for the crash, and the crash only.

Ducktales is a masterpiece in many ways. The game itself is really fun and exciting to play, and you will feel the nostalgia flow through your body. Everything in the game is beautiful. The music, and the sounds are amazing.

Otherwise can the controls be a little bit difficult to be used to, but you will learn them slowly but surely!
So all in all, is this 2D game worth it! Especially if you've seen ducktales before, so this is a really fun game.

9/10 ;)
