Wow... This was not what I was expecting. This was great. This was amazing. This was inspirational (to make my own story!). This was pretty much the only text-based game that kept me reading as opposed to skipping through, and the puzzles maybe stump you once or twice but become understandable past that, and they don't really draw away from the story (as Priority7 said, the game wasn't about the game at all, but the story). And once your mind wraps around it at the end, it kind of makes sense... I think... Great play.
So you're telling me that after I had waited 399 years, these people that couldn't even build a ladder to get over a simple hill discovered crude oil, metal smelting, the art of flight, aerodynamics, engines, how to distill said oil into different fuels, and build a commercial jetliner in 1 year? Impressive, but what I find even more impressive is that this guy can complete a successful face plant underwater... Which means that he probably doesn't have any air in his system... Which means no lungs. Yet, he has a nose.
It's seems like the twist on the names and the tittles of these games have gone downhill and just seem hopeless. Before we know it, we will have "Papa's Diarrhea-ia"... As for the gameplay... I FREAKIN' LOVE THESE GAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A couple things I would want to see in the next one of these (You are making a Duck Life 5... RIGHT?!?!?) Anyways, I think the first thing would be a "Natural skill". Meaning when an egg is hatched, it will have a randomly selected "Natural skill" (i.e. level 10 running, swimming, etc.) And another thing being that skills matter in mini-games. What this means is that whatever your skill level should be, it should be implemented in the mini-game. For example, the first mini-game in the game (The "Ball-Drop" type game). As your running skill level increases, the duck should go faster in the mini-games, as well. So, skill levels matter in mini-games. And the final thing would be... Have team tournaments. I mean, I know you already have these, but one that really forces the player to use more than one duck. And the levels could be just one skill attribute, like only climbing in one level, swimming the next, and maybe the last race being that it uses all of your ducks on your team! :D
I totally glitched out... I ran out of fuel on the ground so I used my boosters and aimed up and then I flew backwards at -48mph and whenever I used another boost I'd go backwards at another -48mph, and then when I reached the bottom of the screen, instead of falling to the ground it recognized the bottom of the screen as the ground, so I stopped in mid-air and the level ended there...
If only I were a pilgrim... With a laser gun... And had a farm of turkeys... And they all lined up... And dressed in other pilgrim clothes or Native American chief hats... And when they died they would spawn other four mini turkeys... That didn't run away... And if I had extra glands or digestive tracks or symbiotic bacteria to help me digest bones and calcium and feathers... And only if I was that susceptible to gaining weight in a limited amount of time... Only if that, I would be this guy.
I am stuck in an infinite loop as I smash the box open and it asks me if it's okay to see what's inside, but I keep pressing now. However I can not do anything else as everything suggest that I open the box. So I go to open the box again and it asks me again if it's okay to look inside, but it's not okay and I press no. I am currently stuck in an infinite loop... Help?
