Duck Shoot
By Mastertronic
Commodore 64

Published in Home Computing Weekly #67

This is a shooting gallery-type of game. There are three conveyors moving across the screen on which are ducks, rabbits, owls, numbers and letters. Above the conveyors is a row of spinning plates.

You have limited bullets and limited shooting-time. In addition to scoring points for hitting the items on the conveyor you need to hit all eight spinning plates to go up a level. This is complicated by a duck which flies across the top of the screen. If you don't hit this duck, all the spinning plates are restoerd and you start again.

The ducks on the conveyor are apt to fly down and eat your bullets. If you run out of time before you run out of bullets the conveyor speeds up. Bonus points can be obtained if you hit the letters bonus in that order on the conveyor. I never got beyond n as I was too busy trying to stop the ducks eating my bullets.

Despite all the action I found the game did not hold my interest for long, partly because there were too many bullet-eating ducks.
