Attention span: 5/10 The simplistic gameplay gets old quickly.
Controls: 7/10 The cursor is easy to use, but the collision detection is lacking.
Implementation: 7/10 More levels with multiple ducks would have beenMore levels w/Multiple ducks would have beenMore levels w/Multiple ducks would have been cool. At least this version, unlike the 83 version, has highscore.
Overall: 6/10 A solid game that you will enjoy for a week or two. Definitely worth the download.

It's just like the Nintendo Game! Only without the gun, and, unfortunately, there is no funny dog, either. This game was originally on the 83, but now thanks to Ahmed El-Helw, the game is availible for the 82. The only difference between the two is the addition of a highscore keeper, which is always welcome. The premise is simple. You see a duck, you shoot the duck. There isn't a TI gun, but an easy to use cursor for aim.

Overall, I would say this is a fairly good game, which means you'll keep in on your calculator for about two weeks at the most before removing it. The game is good, but the gameplay becomes too easy too quickly as within minutes you become a master of the game. The timing is very easy, and the collision detection lacks a bit. Having only five non-varied levels doesn't help either. I would have really liked to see levels where you have to shoot multiple ducks.

"Duck Hunt" is a classic game. It runs very smoothly, and there is no reason to complain about its filesize because it’s so small. This game gains much popularity amongst the people that I have transferred it to. The background is very imaginative, though it never changes. As seen in the animated screen shot, it uses a small, pixilated duck and crosshair, which both run efficiently. My only “issue” with this game is that it is too easy to beat (At most an hour of playing it for the first time). With that aside, if you enjoy hunting, or just love arcade TI games, then you will really enjoy "Duck Hunt." Have Fun and Happy Downloading!
