Darkwing Duck was a classic cartoon in the early 90’s that was a part of the Disney Afternoon. Like many animated series from this period, Darkwing Duck received a video game adaptation. Fortunately, the license was given to Capcom instead of one of the many companies that were known for poor output.
Like many other Disney games made by Capcom, Darkwing Duck provides a fun and challenging experience. Many elements that made the Mega Man games were utilized in this game. For example, Darkwing can run, jump, shoot, and collect special weapons. The player even has the ability to select what stage he/she wishes to attempt rather than a linear structure found in most games. This allows the player to find secret areas in levels he/she finds easy and stock up on ammunition and lives before proceeding to more difficult terrain. Just like Mega Man, each stage is ruled by a boss. Each boss is a villain that actually appeared in the cartoon and have his own pattern and fighting style.
There are a few differences that make this game district from the Mega Man series. First, Darkwing can both duck and use his cape as a shield to avoid enemy fire. Second, Darkwing’s maximum health is a mere 4 HP. Overall, this is a fun little gem that proves not all licensed games are bad.
