Darkwing Duck is a game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System and was later ported to the Game Boy. The game is based on the Disney television series of the same name.

Story[edit | edit source]

Darkwing Duck has to save his hometown of St. Canard from seven different villains.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game plays very much like Capcom's Mega Man video game series, with lots of jumping and shooting and the ability to change weapons via a subscreen; the game is actually running on a slightly tweaked Mega Man 5 engine. However, the game did not have a password feature, and thus was often cited by video game critics as being too difficult for younger players.
