The voice for scrooge was being lowered into his casket as he recorded his lines. Truly Capcom was working on a tight deadline.

Also the game crashed as soon as I landed the last hit on the final boss and i never bothered to pick it back up. I think that about sums it up.

This game is really fun, major problem though: Game keep freezing on the last boss. I got to him about 5 different times now, only for the screen to freeze for no reason at different places during the fight. All the others games I played recently never had this problem. So until they fix this bug which for me ruins the whole game, I can't recommand peoples to pay 15$ for a game like this.

A nice remake of one of my very favorite NES games. DuckTales: Remastered is a game that plays exactly like the old DuckTales on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and what makes it work is that we have a story and dialog to go along with the old game. The gameplay is the same from the NES like I said, but with a few twists that makes it even more exciting. The remastered music is another thing I love about this game and bless my bagpipes the music to The Moon, Transylvania, The Amazon, and many many others. I highly recommend this game to everyone.

Very fun game! I love the gameplay, music, and storyline! The DuckTales theme song is stuck in my head! All in all, this game is great, and I would recommend getting this title. The only flaw I have about this game is the price. I personally think $15 is a bit too much for this, even though it was a good game. I got it on sale during the 2016 Summer Sale, and I thought that if I got it when it wasn't on sale, it would have been a bit too much. All in all (again), this game is great, but the price is a bit too high. If you're willing to get it even though it's $15, go ahead.

It's perfect.

I’m not going to lie, I flipped out a little when I first saw that teaser for DuckTales Remastered back in 2013. The NES version of DuckTales has been close to the top of my nostalgia list for many, many years... and now... Now is the Time... Summer Sale 2016 gave me the opportunity to buy this game... 4,61€ HELLA WORTH IT!.

Pretty much everything about DuckTales Remastered is great, both from a nostalgic point of view and from the music which has been remixed but is still faithful to the original (and extremely good), the visuals are fantastic, the voice acting makes me crack a smile every time, and the harder difficulties are actually hard.

DuckTales Remastered is a game worth playing regardless of whether or not you’ve played the original. But if you’re a total newcomer this is the best choice you can make to start your Ducktales experience :)

This is a beautiful remaster of an NES game, Duck Tales, from 1989. This platformer is a joy to play, a wonder to view, and a good time all around. While at times the story is lackluster and even childish, it still treats the player as a competent person. Compared to the original NES game, it's an upgrade!

Art Style
The art style features beautiful backgrounds and hand-drawn character animations. Every area and every character is incredibly detailed. In fact, that is what makes this game so great: the attention to detail. The game combines 2D characters with a very subtle 3D environment, which makes the experience immersive and areas fun to explore.

Voice Acting
There is voice acting for all of the dialogue throughout the game -- and while the main character, Scrooge McDuck, occasionally spouts a catchphrase or rattles an idiom, it is done tastefully, sprinkled throughout instead of forcefully frontlined. All of the voice actors are amazing, including ones that were brought back from the original 80's show.

Story
The story is, as before mentioned, lackluster and sometimes childish -- but it serves its purpose, and overall is forgivable. It doesn't hinder the gameplay, and in many cases works with it to create tension and purpose. There are plot twists, villains, supporting characters -- it doesn't lack content, but perhaps quality.

Soundtrack
The soundtrack is phenomenal. It takes the already amazing original NES soundtrack, and completely updates it, while also adding new tracks that sometimes exceed the original! There is even an option ingame to switch the soundtrack to the original 8-bit -- and this also includes new 8-bit versions of the added tracks.

Level Design
The level design is great, making areas fun to explore, with enemies sprinkled throughout, and each ending with a boss. It's the same basic formula for each stage, but there's just enough variation to keep you engaged. There are multiple secret areas, lots of hidden gems, and great enemy design.

Gameplay
The game isn't very difficult, but do note that there is a slight difficulty ramp at the end of the game. You'll probably die the most at the end; it is definitely a worthy boss battle. After you finish the story, hard mode will be unlocked, and you can replay the game in said mode. You'll get a lot of hours out of the gameplay, all enjoyable and definitely replayable. While sometimes frustrating, the controls are usually quite pleasant.

Conclusion
You'll appreciate this game if you played the original version as a child -- but you'll appreciate it without as well. A worthy remaster with respect for the source, it's just simply delightful, surprisingly beautiful, and a seriously good time.

I will leave positive feedback because I enjoyed this game a lot.
Unfortunately I got stuck on the last boss... twice...
2 times in totally different place.
I am not going to waste my time trying to figure out how to fix it.
It's just a shame because it feels like I didn't finish it, when I actually wanted

AND I WAS SO CLOSE!!!

Anyway, other than that, music is fun (chip tone), didn't find any other bugs.
This one is enough to spoil the whole game :(

And if this is Nvidia related as some people say (then why the heck wouldn't you fix it if 60% of market is Nvidia)

It was really difficult for me to recommend this game, but I ended up doing it cuz of nostalgia and it was fun enough.

The problem however is (the only way I can describe it) the hitboxes. What I mean about that is when you use pogo jump (big jump with cane), well, even if you are standing on the edge of a block, it doesn't mean that you actually can pogo jump, and that really becomes an issue when you jump from one place to another, and you actually land on the edge of the block, you just land there with your feet, and you have to move backwards in order to pogo jump again.

The most annoying part of the game is level design and where the enemy is located. Many times you will encounter enemies which is placed in stupid places, by that I mean it seems like there is no way to avoid taking damage. I started playing on medium, but I couldn't get past the first world because of some enemies was close to impossible to get past without taking damage. So I just decided to complete it on EASY, if I hadn't done that, then i'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have recommended this game.

There is also an issue with hitboxes for enemies, especially the last boss, god damnit this boss was annoying, not because it was hard, but because the way the game was designed. It's kinda difficult to kno where you have to hit the boss in order to damage it, sometimes it's ok to not hit it's head, sometimes not ok to not hit it's head, so if the enemy extends a hand you actually take damage if you pogo jump on the arm..

And the way scrooge is drawn makes his hitbox kinda weird, because the way he is standing, you just need to get used to getting damaged a lot.

There are some other examples but I don't want to spoil the game.
Anyway, it was difficult for me to decide whether to recommend this or not, but the nostalgia, the artstyle, the voice acting, the music and a bit of fun gameplay got to me. If you are like me, just play it on easy, and go for medium when you have completed it.
