Surprisingly polished, DuckTales Remastered is an incredibly pleasant re-make that manages to positively change a classic.
Back in the early 90s, platforming games were made for just about every Saturday morning cartoon that existed. Honestly, there’s a game for the Biker Mice from Mars, I swear. However, the Disney franchise games were always a step above, and DuckTales was no exception. Most people who have played the original probably remember the tough difficulty (being “Nintendo Tough”) and the fantastic soundtrack (“The Moon,” in particular). There really wasn’t a plot, the main objective was to just travel around the world, grabbing treasures as Scrooge McDuck while pogo-bouncing off the heads of enemies with Scrooge’s cane…which is probably one of the most bizarre standard attacks to exist.
This remastered version, made by Way Forward, makes a few sensible changes while retaining all the things that made the original fun. Pogo bouncing can be made easier with a menu option, and the levels have been tweaked to require specific objectives to complete. Overall, the game’s difficulty has been turned down a notch, and even includes difficulty options. The soundtrack is a near-copy of the original, and the original voice cast makes a reappearance, which is awesome.
There’s an actual storyline to the game now, and each level is punctuated with moments of character interaction that makes the game essentially feel like a multi-episode storyline from the cartoon. I personally really enjoyed this extra touch, and it really makes the game feel new. If Way Forward could keep this quality level and attention to detail going, I would love to see them tackle a few other Disney projects, such as Darkwing Duck or TaleSpin.
I wouldn’t say the game has a large amount of replay-ability, but the achievements are all reasonably obtainable, and there is an unlockable gallery of development art and music that can be purchased with money earned from treasure pickups. It’s fun to play through, and keeps forward momentum without being annoying or frustrating.
Recommended to fans of the original game, or someone looking for a weekend platformer. Way Forward has done a great job with this re-make, and from the positive updates and improvements
