Quackshot: a forgotten Genesis gem?


The great thing about Quackshot is that it is EXACTLY WHAT THE BOX ART SAYS IT IS. It is literally Indiana Jones starring Donald Duck. That was the original title, but lawsuits and licensing forced Sega to change the name to Quackshot at the last second (a proper citation is needed here). There are mine carts and pulleys and megaphones that will kill you with sound effects. There is a great sense of adventure, and nods to Indy throughout (especially a part towards the very end that I won't spoil here). It doesn't overstay its welcome and is fun to pick up and play and beat in one sitting. Donald has an annoyed idle animation where he winks at the player while his butt feathers point to the direction he is facing, HOW COOL IS THAT? Honestly, sentient butt feathers are enough for me to recommend this game to everyone. Hunt it down for the Genesis or the Saturn and give it a try! You might love it just as much as I did when I was six, and as much as I love it now at twenty-seven.

My name is Arthur Damian. I am 37 years old, and I have been gaming since the NES era. I like the new school AND the old school. Chrono Trigger is the bestest game ever, and Junction is the worstest. I love to write, and I am currently working at CUNY School of Professional Studies, helping students transfer in their credits from other universities. I also love vidja gamez, and right now I'm playing games on the PS5 and Switch, even though I have a huge backlog of games on the Wii, Wii U, and 360 to go through. BLURG. I was an author at Destructoid's sister site, Nintendo Enthusiast, I work for That VideoGame Blog as editor-in-chief, AND I'm a staff writer at The Escapist.
