Duck Quest: Walkthrough

PSA: WHEN CROSSING SCREENS TO LEFT/RIGHT, AVOID THE TOP-/BOTTOM-MOST PART OF SCREEN. You may get stuck. Many times.

Duckling?

Duckling near Sax Player:

  • Get FLEAS from the trash can at the start screen.

  • Go north 1 screen and use FLEAS on Punit the dog.

  • Go south 2 screens and east 1 screen. Use FLEAS on the Vagrant Drummer, who joins you. I guess you like being followed around.

  • Go west 2 screens and north 1 screen. Talk to the Sax Player (you have to be right next to him, no box in between). Enjoy jamming, retrieve duckling.

    • (Careful walking onto this screen from now oneasy to get stuck. If you have to approach it, try entering from above or below, not from sides.)

  • Duckling.

    Duckling near Park Entrance:

  • Talk to the Painter (east side of the park, just left of the start screen). Talk to him again to get directions to Top Hat Dude.

  • Go 1 screen west and 2 screens south, to the park entrance. Talk to Top Hat Dude.

  • Go 2 screens west and 1 screen north, to the berry bush (and aesthetically pleasing trash can) on the west side of the park. Get a BASEBALL CAP from the berry bush.

  • Go back to the park entrance and use the BASEBALL CAP on Top Hat Dude. Duckling retrieved!

  • Duckling♥

    Duckling near Oak Tree (NE park corner):
    (You must have already retrieved the duckling near the Sax Player. See Duckling? above.)

  • Go back to the Sax Player. Wow, thats a real jam sesh. Talk to the Sax Player to get some MONEY. Since for some reason you cant use it on the hot dog man (he probably discriminates against ducks), instead:

  • Go 2 screens east and 2 screens south, to the Vending Machine. Quack at the kid (press Q) to scare him off. Use MONEY on the Vending Machine and get an epic product placement MOUNTAIN DEW®.

    • (You may also want to pick up the HOT DOG VOUCHER that the kid dropped.)

  • Go 4 screens west to the Balloon Seller. Use MOUNTAIN DEW® on the Balloon Seller. Get BALLOON.

  • Go 4 screens east and 4 screens north, to the NE corner of the park. Use BALLOON on the oak tree. Hooray, duckling!

    • (If this is your third duckling, it will say that this one is your favorite. This game makes a point of giving extra love to the middle child. Guess we dont love our ducklings equally around here!)

  • Duckling!

    Duckling near Hot Dog Stand

  • With your HOT DOG VOUCHER in beak, go to the hot dog stand (1 screen south of the NW corner of the park).

    • If you dont already have a HOT DOG VOUCHER, go to the vending machine (SE corner of park) and quack at the boy (press Q). Pick up the VOUCHER (careful not to stand on it or you cant pick it up).

  • Use the VOUCHER on the Hot Dog Man. Get a duckling. Hooray!

  • Enjoy the super-adorable end animation. Daww.

    This is just lovely! :D

    If anything, I'd make the movement a tad faster (but then again, that's being a duck, I guess) and the game a bit longer. Very nice!

    Got stuck just before the last duck, on the screen

    Where the band and the girls and the granny are whooping it up

    Moved onto it and then could not move off in any direction.

    This is rather tricky.

    I got the bone from the trash can and gave it to the dog, getting fleas. One duckling is in the top right tree, one is in the saxophone, and one is in the hotdog stand. Not sure where the 4th is. I need a drink for the balloon man and money for the hotdog man. Not sure what the fat kid at the vending machine wants, or the pair of women feeding pigeons/reading, or the old lady. I also have a baseball cap, but don't know what to do with it, or the fleas.

    @inheritance.fan

    Hint:

    Look at the picture in the game summary on this page. The kid seems to be surprised by ducks...

    Solution:

    You have to quack at him.

    Nice little distraction game.

    I opened my inventory when I had no items and couldn't exit.

    There's no save system and I don't feel like restarting :\

    I got to the part...

    Where you give the Mountain Dew (Lord of the product placement) to the balloon guy. Now the game is frozen and since I've already found my other 3 ducklings I couldn't be bothered to replay. Especially since the mother duck's speed seems to be set at glacial. Cute graphics though.

    Pretty sure this isn't supposed to happen:

    Looks like I'll have to restart to fix it...

    Meanwhile, I can't figure out how to get the Mountain Dew.

    Are you kidding me? First time, got 3 ducklings and stuck on the drummer, just like yaddab and Zanoushe. Second run through, got three duckings AGAIN, gave the drink to the salesman and everything just plain freezes. Am I SUPPOSED to be unable to reunite my duck family?

    The duck was tooooo slow! I'll have another go at this perhaps as I like these kind of adventure games but the walking speed is just such a put-off.

    Found the same bug as the others after trying to play twice.

    Giving the balloon salesman the Mountain Dew freezes my screen, no matter which direction I approach him

    This game's cute, but I can't play it again until they fix it.

    This game's super cute, but doing almost anything causes it to freeze. So far for me, that's talking to people or picking things up. With no save function, it's pretty much unplayable until fixed.

    Quacking and getting tiny quacks from my ducklings in reply is adorable though. Aw.

    The game has never frozen for any of us here at JIG. Would those posting that the game freezes please post what version of OS, browser, and Flash Player you're using, please?

    Played twice and got stuck on the booty shakin' grandma screen both times. I was about to get the last duck too! :(

    Other than that, super cute game. I love the art. I would complain about how slow you walk, but hey, it adds to the experience.

    Not gonna refresh just to get one duck, but I might replay if they fix the glitches.
