Well, hello Mr. Dev!
The graphics are a bit too simple for my liking.

It looks nice and stuff, and I'm sure someone will like it. It's just not my type of game though. I learned that after I bought iHunt. :P

Lol we made this app as a great alternative for those who were dissapointed with iHunt!

We do not use the accelometer to aim, have actually flying ducks and an online scoreboard. This is a completely different experience which people should find memorable of old school duck hunting you might have playing on your video game machine in the 80's / 90's.

Those who want to kick it old school will have some fun

Thanks for your comments

Menu: 4 options
turn off sound
Check high scores
Check online high scores

theres no duck hunt dog if your wondering and no original duck hunt sounds

when you start this old guy jumps out and gives you the shhhh be quiet and does the duck call and the ducks come flying out

ducks are fully animated just like the NES version and fly pretty much the same way and make duck sounds when flying

you have unlimited ammo but 3 bullets at a time

once you run out you click reload and loads 3 more bullets

you have to make a certain score to advance to the next level

The ducks when they fly away don't fly up and out the screen like the original, they fly away and you can shoot em in the butt as they fly away

its very easy at first but get harder as you go untill the ducks were on crack and I couldn't shoot any of em lol

and the ducks very in size as to make em easy and hard to hit

So pretty much you start a round ducks keep flying out you keep shooting em doves will fly out and you have to not shoot em and you have a certain amount of time to kill as many ducks as possible and make the score to advance

worth 99 cents? sure if you love the duck hunt game, its as close to duck hunt without actually porting it. but with your own sounds and graphics and all.
