One of the few education titles from Hi-Tech Expressions, and therefore one of its rarest releases, Daffy Duck is a so-so spelling game starring popular Looney Tunes characters Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and more.
The game was designed for kids aged 5-8 to hone basic vocabulary skills, so it is easy to learn and play. The goal is simple: Daffy Duck is on a treasure hunt. On each level, you must pick up the correct alphabet (using ENTER key) that is missing from a given word, then put it down (again with ENTER key) in the correct slot. For example, if the word is SE_EN, you must pick up the V block and drop it in the blank. But you must be careful—other Looney Tunes characters such as Porky Pig and Wily E. Coyote can cause you lives. You are armed with a rifle that fires bananas (yes, bananas) to keep adversaries at bay, and completing the word correctly will yield a gold coin and grant access to the next, more difficult, level. A pretty decent game overall, but the lack of gameplay variety will probably not keep kids glued to the screen as long as, say, Super Solver games.Reviewed by: Underdogs
