It's a futuristic alternative 1984, and ducks run wild in a frantic battle for glory. You battle to win over the crowd to gain followers by blasting your feathered friends with Shotguns, Net Guns, Mind Control Rays, Saxophones, Magnet Guns, to name a few.
As you progress through the hundreds of levels you discover new weapons and challenges. But the main attraction is the chaotic battles where you go head to head against other players. You jump from platform to platform to get the advantage and find the best guns. However, each of the 50 firearms works differently so you need to learn how they each work.
The results is a but like Worms turn-based battles but everyone is shooting at the same time. It's frantic and funny and hard to predict who is likely to win. A perfect family party game. There's even a level editor on the Switch and PC version.
