Derek the Flightless Duck! - Version 1.1 Released

Postby Wonderland » Wed Aug 31, 2016 7:41 am

You are Derek, the duck that was born without the ability to fly. As such, you usually don't migrate in the winter like the others. But you've been mocked for that. Now, after the other ducks left for this year, you decide that you should try and make it down to the south, on foot. You'll prove you too can migrate...

-Jump, double jump, and dash, using smooth controls!
-Explore many varied levels!
-Simple, retro-style platforming gameplay!

Sorry about the screenshot picture quality! I guess I used a crappy format! This game is in development, with the release date unknown.

Edit: As of Mar.15th, 2017, it is downloadable on its game page. http://engine001.com/games/Derek%20the%20Flightless%20Duck%21_3559.htm

Edit: As of Mar.16th, 2017, it has been updated to tone down the timer.

Also, gameplay video:

Derek needs a jetpack! Looks like a cool little platformer, interested to see where you take it ;)

This game looks entertaining...
Maybe a temporary technologic helmet, that control the mind of the enemy temporarily to combine with the "jetpack" :D

Thanks! That's an interesting idea. Hmm...


Bump. :razz:

I put this on hold for a while. I don't know why as it was nearly done. I jumped back into it and fairly soon it will (probably) actually release.

Thanks for playing. Ironically I was afraid my game was too easy ha ha. I guess when you test it a lot you become a master at it, and assume others will find it easy too. I may release an update to tone down the timer. Just out of curiosity, were you aware that you have the ability to run with the Z key? That can speed things up.

Updated to tone down the timer.

EDIT: Added gameplay video to OP.

EDIT AGAIN: Also, a water world! And a bad dream!

no, i didnt realise i could run. i did have some thoughts already though. apart from the toast pickup, there are yellow circles.. are they suns and do they give me extra time to complete the lvl before getting frozen? if not, why not. also,i personally would edit the font on the timer and stuff in the topright, say something 38-48pix high, a chunky font that fades from a light colour (red if you like) to dark (black or near black). its verry simple to do and i think would be easier to see during play and also add a bit of graphic quality., but yeah, that just my 2 cents. its a solid game, the wolves are good enemies.

The yellow circles give points. The clocks give extra time. There is also a help thing in the main menu you can read for clarification. Thanks for the idea!

This game is so much fun but quite challenging.
So read Deborah's review of Meladerm.
