Duck, Think Outside the Flock

Duck, Think Outside the Flock

This game is a simple almost-puzzle game based around ducks. It's exceptionally simple and very easy to complete. The puzzles could do with more innovations although I must admit the game is exceptionally popular in some of the Kongregate rooms. Namely Feed The Ducks where Ducklette reigns. The game itself uses the same image of a duck throughout the whole thing but the ideas and mechanics of the game are essentially a re-hash throughout. When playing you feel like your playing the same game over and over again. The game was created as a advertisement to an independent film called Duck about a man who is depressed but finds strength in his duckling pal in a dystopian future. A little awkward to have a flash game to support it but I'm all about indie film so I may as well mention it. Overall the game is a moderate attempt at flash gaming even though you won't necessarily finding yourself playing it more than once as it has nothing to bring you back.

+/- Quick Walkthrough

Level 1: Collect the floating white balls
Level 2: Click all the ducks to turn them around
Level 3: Follow the duck with the arrow above it's head
Level 4: Find the duck with the abnormality, (it's bright purple should be easy to spot)
Level 5: Same as level one except inverted mouse controls

Level 7: Flip over all of the ducks, (I just did Middle-Left, Top-Right, Bottom-Right)
Level 8: Collect the white balls from smallest to largest
Level 9: Again collect white balls while avoiding purple balls in an inverted structure
Level 10: Find the abnormality the duck should be missing it's left eye
