Duck Hunt has been around for many of years on the NES system. Well the folks at interactive games brought that game to life and now you can play duck hunter outside anytime. The Duck Hunter game is an interactive game consisting of a foam duck that flaps its wings, and a infrared gun. They game is simple, charge the duck for ten seconds and the turn it on and try to shoot it down. I have created this review because I had a hard time finding out about it myself. I created it using questions I asked when I bought it.
Does it work?
Ill start with the most obvious questions, does it work? To answer that it actually works rather well. I used to fly remote control airplanes as a kid and I remember when they introduced the ornathopter. The ornathopter is simply on a electronic bird. The makers of this game used that model and created a game out of it. Just charge it, toss it and shoot it three times to bring it down.
Is it fun?
Duck hunter is hours of fun. I have read people saying it doesn’t work. The secret is to toss the duck lightly in the air and let it do the flying. You may control the direction of the duck with the direction controls. Hit the duck three times with the infrared gun and it stops and falls out of the sky.
How Long does it take to charge?
The duck hunter game was designed to fly for 30 seconds or until you shoot it down. It only takes 10 seconds to charge it up. To do this make sure the duck is turned off and plug in the duck and hold the trigger for 10 seconds. That is all and the duck is ready to go.
What kind of batteries does it use?
All you need for the Duck Hunter game is three triple A batteries. However, I must warn you the batteries do not last long and I would recommend investing in at least 6 rechargeable batteries. One set of batteries lasts me about 45 minutes of constant playing. But when the batteries are weak the range of the gun becomes very small and the game does not work as well. So always have a screwdriver and fresh batteries available.
That is about it the Duck Hunter game is simple but can literally keep you entertained for hours at a time. Go out and have fun. Remember this game allows you to have fun shooting at things but not actually kill anything.
