Waddles the Duck

Waddles the Duck is a NES game created for the NESDev 2016 coding competition. It was completed on 1/31/17, and didn’t place particularly well for a number of reasons.

I would recommend downloading and play the game this was based on, Eversion over this one, but it’s here if you want it!

The basic story is, you are a duck taken out of his own timeline, trying to find his way home.

Note: The colors on the emulator are somewhat off, especially for the “ice” dimension – this is an issue with the version of the NesBox emulator I’m using. If this bugs you, please download the ROM and use emulator such as FCEUX.

To play this game, please, download the latest Flash player!
