Quackshot Starring Donald Duck, called Quackshot: I Love Donald Duck: Guruzia Ou no Hihou or just I Love Donald Duck: Guruzia Ou no Hihou (アイラブドナルドダック グルジア王の秘宝) in Japan, is a platform game released for the Sega Mega Drive in 1991. It is part of the series of Disney games Sega were allowed to publish for their console during the early 1990s.

Its 8-bit counterpart is The Lucky Dime Caper, released for the Sega Master System and Game Gear in the same year.

Gameplay

In the game the player controls Donald Duck, armed with a plunger, who travels across the world looking for treasure. C jumps, Down+C slides, B fires plungers and holding A while moving makes Donald run.

While the yellow default plunger can only stun enemies, later variants can also stick to walls and ceillings. Further weapons are a bubble shot (which can dissolve concrete) and a popcorn shooter (spreadshot).

Collecting chilly peppers puts Donald in a rage mode, granting temporary invincibility.

The game partially non-linear: special tools like the above mentioned weapons or other items need to be collected and used in order to fully explore and clear stages.

History

Release

Two versions of the game exist, with the later ROM being considerably larger than the former due to a large block of padding added in the middle for unknown reasons.

Legacy

In Japan, Quackshot was bundled with Castle of Illusion in Sega Ages I Love Mickey Mouse: Fushigi no Oshiro Daibouken/I Love Donald Duck: Guruzia Ou no Hihou for the Sega Saturn. A compilation of the two was also available in the form of The Disney Collection.
