Duck Hunt Walkthrough

Duck Hunt is a classic Nintendo game that was released in Japan in 1984 for the NES and in arcades. The game was released in 1985 in the United States, and in 1987 in Europe. This classic game was one of the first games to use a light gun (in this case, the NES Zapper), which allowed players to have a real simulated hunting experience instead of using their game controller to play the game. This Flash port is an excellent reproduction of the classic game, but does not come with a light gun, so you will have to use your mouse instead.

The original Duck Hunt featured three gameplay modes: One Duck, Two Ducks, and Clay Shooting. In One Duck mode (which was present on the NES version, but not the arcade game), a single duck flies around the screen. You have three shots to shoot down the duck before it escapes. Two Duck mode is similar to One Duck mode, except that two ducks fly across the screen. Both ducks must be shot (or all ammo must be spent) before the next two ducks appear. In Clay Shooting mode, two clay pigeons were shot into the distance from a first-person perspective. In all modes, at least five targets must be shot in order to advance to the next round.

This Flash version of Duck Hunt features One Duck and Two Duck modes, but Clay Shooting mode is absent. Instead, a Dog Shooting mode is introduced. This mode is perfect if that dog laughing at your failure has gotten on your last nerves. You have unlimited ammunition in Dog Shooting mode. Simply move your mouse over dogs to mow them down with your high-powered chaingun! To end this mode (or any other mode, for that matter) and return to the main menu, press the Q key.

This Flash port of Duck Hunt is not perfect, but it is a decent reproduction of the classic game, and a fun bit of nostalgia. You can finally get revenge against that mutt too!
