Alligator Software's Duck Hunt (not to be confused with the Nintendo shooter of the same name) is a duck hunting simulation for Windows-based personal computers. The object of the game is to shoot down as many flying ducks as you can. There are 20 ducks per wave and three different skill levels.
The game begins on the main screen. Players then need to right click on their mouse to bring up an options screen. Here, players will choose a skill level, the speed of the ducks, one of eleven musical scores, and the scenery. The three skill levels are First Time Hunter, Seasoned Hunter, and Professional Hunter.
After setting the options, players click on the "Go Hunting" button. The crosshairs of a hunting rifle appear on the screen, along with the words "RELOAD" and "DUCK CALL." Using the crosshairs, players click on "DUCK CALL" to begin a wave. There are three shots in the rifle to begin the wave. After firing three shots, players must click "RELOAD." Ammunition is inexhaustible.
To advance to the next wave, players must shoot the number of ducks equal to twice the wave number. In wave one, players must shoot at least two ducks. In wave two, players must shoot at least four ducks, and so on. Whenever a player fails to meet the quota for a wave, the game is over.
Players who score in the top five can enter their names.
According to the manufacturer, Duck Hunt is the first duck hunting game developed for Windows. ~ Anthony Baize, All Game Guide
