Summary: Inspired by the classic Duck Amuck cartoon, players will compete against Daffy through a series of mini-games that range from retro inspired favorites to modern, innovative gameplay interactions, with the goal of driving Daffy's temperature, and his temper, through the roof.
Excerpt: Daffy Duck is one of Warner Brothers’ most famous icons. He appeared alongside Bugs Bunny in many animated features as a complementary screwball type character. He always put himself above others and the only things which could divert his attention away from his vanity were sparkling, priceless gems. Such a lovable duck! Anyway, there was one short film that was produced back in the heydays of 2D animation – Duck Amuck .
Excerpt: In 1953, Warner Bros. produced the now-classic animated short "Duck Amuck," in which an unseen animator does everything in his power to frustrate Daffy Duck. The scenery is constantly erased and redrawn, forcing Daffy from one costume change to the next. At one point, the animator erases Daffy's body and transforms him into a bizarre cross between a lizard and a houseplant.
Pros: Figuring out all of the ways you can annoy Daffy and then watching him react is fun, Seamless melding of video clips and game graphics makes you feel like you really are interacting with Daffy
Cons: There aren't enough minigames, and most of them are lame anyway, Shorter than a Looney Toons episode
Excerpt: Name: Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck Genre: Mini Game Compellation Platform: Nintendo DS A few months back the preview videos for Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck started to surface. From out of nowhere came an amazingly promising game that would convert one of the most amazing episodes in all of the Warner Brothers Cartoon archives to an interactive game. The very idea is pure brilliant: a game where the artist is the player, and the canvas is the Nintendo DS.
Excerpt: , your goal is not to save the princess, or to make Daffy as wealthy as possible, or to show Bugs Bunny once and for all which mascot is superior. You aren't even sparing the cartoon world an invasion from Marvin the Martian. In fact, though Daffy is clearly the star of the show, you're not helping him do anything great at all. Instead, you're trying to ruffle his feathers. You win the game when he gets so angry that he blows his top. That's it. End of story.
Excerpt: For those somewhat familiar with Looney Toons during its Golden Age, animator Chuck Jones created a little short called Duck Amuck, in which an unseen animator torments a temperamental Daffy Duck by poking, erasing, and redrawing him. This hilarious premise has been transported into the 21st century in an ingenious way via the Nintendo DS. Instead of an animator messing with Daffy this time around, it's you - the gamer - with a stylus.
Summary: In the game inspired by the classic Duck Amuck cartoon, players will compete against Daffy through a series of mini-games that range from retro inspired favorites to modern, innovative gameplay interactions, with the goal of driving Daffy's temperature, and his temper, through the roof.
