Do you remember the good old retro Nintendo game Duck Hunt? Many people have grown up using a Nintendo console and most of them have at least once played Duck Hunt.
The game was one of the popular titles back then in 1984. You couldn’t use the controller to play. You had to use the NES Zapper, a gun that was pointed to the screen to detect ducks.
The game concept was very simple yet very entertaining and addicting. You were in the role of a hunter hunting for ducks. Basically, a few ducks appear on the screen and you have to shoot them with your gun. The dog that accompanies you collects all the fallen ducks.
If you fail to hit a duck three times in a row, you lose and it is game over. Then the dog smiles and makes fun of you for not killing all ducks. The dog has been considered as one of the most annoying video game characters ever.
Unfortunately, if you have the old Nintendo console and Duck Hunt game, you will not be able to play it because the NES Zapper requires a CRT TV while all modern TVs are HD.
If you don’t have an old CRT TV, then you can grab your Android or iOS phone because there are games on the store similar to the retro Nintendo version where you have to kill ducks.
Duck Hunter a similar game to Duck Hunt. You are inside a forest and you have to kill as many zombie ducks as possible. If you miss any birds, the virus will spread and you lose the game.
Duck Shooting is more similar to the original game. The scenery is the same with the mountains on the background, some trees and the lake. Oh, and don’t forget the dog. It is there.
The original version of the game was on iTunes a few years ago but it got removed because of copyright claims from Nintendo. But there are still a few games that you can try on your phone.
