Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Non linear gameplay with branching paths and hidden areas
The original DuckTales for the NES was created with the MegaMan engine by the main MegaMan design team. This allowed for a non linear gameplay design as well as many hidden areas, paths and treasures. The HD remakes still has all of this included in the game.
Pro Immersive mode
DuckTales: Remastered features immersive mode support for full screen gameplay on hardware with software navigation buttons.
Pro Plenty of nostalgia for 80's kids
One of the main staples of having grown up in the 80's was Disney's after school cartoons. One of the more popular cartoons in this series was DuckTales, a tale about a rich uncle and his three nephews. To capitalize on the cartoons popularity Capcom created a platformer game from the franchise for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Unlike a lot of branded games of the time (E.T, Goonies) DuckTales turned out to be a very good game. One that just about anyone who grew up in the 80's should be familiar with, and even if not is at least familiar with the cartoon itself.
So now that 80's children have grown up and have jobs and money, the current trend is for companies to capitalize on that nostalgia. DuckTales: Remastered is an effort in that direction that sees the original NES title remastered with HD graphics and released on every platform known to man.
Pro HID controller support
DuckTales: Remastered has built in HID bluetooth controller support. This makes for a great game to play on tablets and Android box tops for the TV.
While some people may not agree, to see a 2 year old remastered port of a port be released at a price point of $9.99, the price is not really justified. While it is great to see more up front priced console quality games released for Android, 2 year old ports priced at premium prices (for the platform in comparison to other titles) is only showing Disney's greed at taking advantage of the fact that there are so few currently.
