  • Summary: Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck lets players wield the Nintendo DS stylus to irritate, aggravate and infuriate their own Daffy Duck in humorous ways. In the game inspired by the classic Duck Amuck cartoon, players 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. Duck Amuck also features wireless game play allowing players to not only gang up on Daffy as a team but also battle each other in head-to-head competition. [Warner Bros. Interactive] Expand

  1. The real charm of the game comes from Daffy's annimated reactions to your meddling, done with such a pitch-perfect style that it would have made the late Chuck Jones proud. [Nov 2007, p.102]

    Where many games tend to stick to well trodden gameplay paths when dealing with well know intellectual property, Duck Amuck is brimming with originality.
  3. I would recommend that everyone experience the brilliant design of this game and the witty dialogue, especially if you're a fan of the cartoon; however, the mini-games (the meat of the game) do not hold up for very long. There is about 2 hours of gameplay in Duck Amuck, and whether that warrants a $30 purchase is up to you.
  4. Almost an interactive cartoon. Excellent, if short lived, entertainment. [Christmas 2007, p.84]
  5. 60
    Ultimately, Duck Amuck succeeds more as an interactive cartoon than it does as a mini-game collection.
  6. 60
    Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck isn't bad, it's just an idea that wasn't stretched out far enough to cover the space provided in the cartridge.
  7. This is an excellent case of style dripping over substance and if you can forgive its dire lack of the latter, you're sure to enjoy what laughs you'll get out of it.

    I thought the idea of a Looney Tunes game based off of one of the most famous shorts would be really good, but instead it's badly designed mini games with mostly bad controls. Daffy Duck warrants for a few laughs every now and then, but overall this game is really bad. I only give it a 5 because I enjoyed some of the mini games that weren't so annoying and repetitive.
