The ducks look quite cute!!!
Do the coins come in good amounts during gameplay?
Are there power ups?
Best wishes for your game!

Hi there!

There are plenty of coins in the game itself, they're dropped by ducks in vehicles like submarines and hot air balloons on every level.

There are tons of power-ups you can buy at the start of every game:
  • Ducks with jetpacks!
  • Frog shrink ray!
  • Rare duck bait!
  • Extra long combos!
  • Double coin duck drops!

For some reason the description isn't displaying in my post but if you follow the link there's more detail.

Thanks for your interest!

This is actually a fun little game - very similar to the Fruit Ninja family except you're tapping rather than slicing. Hoping to catch a sighting of a "rare duck" while playing is a neat feature as well.

It's a little limited at this point since there are only four different stages to play on and they all play more or less the same. There's definitely an element of strategy in timing your "duck taps" to extend your combos, and deciding whether to use the coin generators to get coins or to boost your score.

The ability to buy powerups and combinations of them can break the scoring system, though - by combining the Rocket Duck and Combo Extender powerups I was able to get more than 100,000 points on the final level.

Hopefully there will be updates with additional levels. I'd also like to see stages that have different objectives. (Not sure what could be added, though - maybe bonus points for hitting a certain number of the same color of duck in a row, or a stage where your star rating is based off of your combo length, or a Frog Paradise Boss Level where the majority of the appearances are Frogs, you only have one life, and missing any ducks will cause you to instantly lose.)

Hi Laire,

Pleased to hear you're enjoying it!

As to your points, you'd be surprised how spot on you are.

Updates will be coming out regularly, the first will be a Halloween update with a spooky level and some new ducks. There will also be one around Christmas.

A survival mode is also planned as you mentioned, an objective system is something I've been toying with for a while and will probably put in there. I'm also hoping to add Achievements and Leaderboards.

In regards to the scoring, I completely agree with what you're saying but I made the game to be enjoyed by all audiences so I wanted it to be pretty easy for a skilled player. For the more skilled players I was considering adding a platinum star to every level and leaderboards would help keep it competitive.

Thanks for playing!

Understood. Remember, the best sign that someone is enjoying a game is when they come up with suggestions on how to add more to it. But yeah, this isn't really a game that NEEDS Ultra Hardcore difficulty.

True, but there's no harm in providing value to the hardcore players too. My goal was/is to let anybody pretty much see all the content but I'll perhaps add more for the skilled players.
