Ducked Up! A challenging physics game for iPhone and iPad

Ducked Up

Ducked Up! Rating: ★★★★☆

Ducked Up! developed by Alphasprite is a challenging physics based game. It is an addictive puzzle and only your quick reflexes will help you complete the game.

The aim of the game is to guide your little rubber duck from the moment it appears out of his vent, back into another vent where ever it is located on the screen. To do this you have to use pockets of air to blow the duck in which ever direction you want it to go. You do this by tapping your finger and then swiping it into the direction you choose. It then shows on screen a little fan vortex and an arrow showing you the direction it will make the duck drift. Watch out though depending on what level you are on you only have a set amount of them to use.

The first few levels will be nice and easy then as you move along there are lots of obstacles to avoid, if you don’t avoid them the level ends. There are also different types of scenes, you might find some with stationary scattered around the screen, bath tubs or a pool table. There is even an unusual haemoglobin roamin’ scene. All strange and yet very entertaining! At certain stages you also get little pigs floating around the screen as well.

The controls are very simple just one finger is needed to swipe on the screen. You can play easy, normal or hard depending how good you become and how much of a challenge you are wanting. As you play your scores are also saved so you can attempt to do them again to try beat your previous score.

I got a little confused when playing the game because even if you failed to get your duck to its destination it said level complete and it recorded your score even if you got no ducks home and a score of 0%. I felt that seemed a bit pointless it should only really record it if you finished the level.

The graphics are really good. Very bright and full of color and all the items in the scene are easy to make out, even the tiny ducks and pigs floating round. I liked the background music, I have a habit of turning music off when playing games as they become increasingly annoying but I left this one playing. It was catchy but not in such a way that I couldn’t concentrate and I had to turn it off. It fit the game perfectly.

Ducked Up! is a quick pick up and play game. It is addicitive and the type of game where if you can’t complete it you can’t stop playing until you have. It’s fun for all ages and a game for the whole family.

The Good

  • Challenging and addcitive game.
  • Great graphics

The Not So Good

  • The level complete and scoring records are confusing.
