    Enter the universe of DUCK GAME. The year is 1984 - and ducks have covered the known world with brutalist office spaces, factories, and construction projects. Fueled by a colossal military- and defense-weapons industry, the ruling government of Duck World recently installed instant-access weapon portals within every office space and simulated forest environment in the spirit of convenient self defense.

    Four ducks are sick of working. Now it's time to play!

    At the end of the day, Duck Game is flocking fun and a real gem for anyone wanting some pure, unadulterated entertainment. Its simple controls mixed with addictively fun gameplay and a hilarious premise make this an instant multiplayer classic.

    Duck Game has been of favorite indie party game for years on PC, and I’m so excited to finally be able to bring it with me wherever I go to convince more friends and coworkers to play it with me at any time. Even though it was made as a PC exclusive five years ago, it still feels like Duck Game was made for the easy pick-up-and-play-anywhere multiplayer that the Switch was first advertised with. Few games draw out as many laughs, screams, and curses among my friends as Duck Game does, and now that it’s available on Switch it’s going to be a cornerstone of my millennial rooftop parties for years to come.

    Despite its humor, Duck Game is far from a joke of a game. Tightly designed and easy to jump into, it's a sure pick for anyone looking to entertain some company.

    All things considered, Duck Game is a thoroughly enjoyable and silly party game. Its simple but fast-paced gameplay, varied map design, and penchant towards bedlam make for unpredictable fun. While I would only wholeheartedly recommend the game for local play, it makes for a great addition to anyone's rotation of couch multiplayer titles.

    If you are looking for a title for parties or games with friends where the goal is to have fun with the opponent, this game is perfect for you. This local or online multiplayer 2D shooter is the perfect tool to satisfy this type of need.

    The Towerfall-like party title Duck Game is now on Switch, and with it comes a package of wonkiness and absurdism.

Very satifying quick action. Intuitive controls and plenty of chaos. Including single player in a game like this is an unexpected nice touch. The quick speed between battles is amazing. I think it is best to just grab 4 people and play it without reading anything more about it. Stop reading and play now! Expand

The arenas andIf you have friends to play with, Duck Game is an excellent party game with good online and hours upon hours of gameplay. The arenas and weapons in the game are designed flawlessly. They ensure chaos ensues with every round and that you’ll be screaming at your friends down the mic or elbowing them on the sofa.

    As a single player experience though, the game is lacking. At the time of review, finding online games was none existent and the single player content isn’t worth your time.
