Review by Tom Allen
3 Stars out of 4

I have fond memories of Marvin Missions from the Super NES. If I went back to that game, though, I wonder if I would enjoy it as much as I did then. It's probably safe to say that the new Daffy game would be more enjoyable.

Duck Dodgers isn't perfect, but it shows a lot of effort and creativity within the context of basic Mario-inspired platform action. The personality of Daffy and the Looney Tunes world is captured flawlessly in this title.

The graphics are bright and colorful, bringing the cartoon to life. Daffy's comments are as irritating as ever - I wouldn't have it any other way.

The levels are very basic with little touches of Looney fun. Impossibly balanced rocks become teetering stepping stones. Rockets propel you from mesa to mesa. Mobsters are out to pluck you, if you get my drift.

Sneaking around on your tippy-toes (by holding the R button) is accompanied by that ubiquitous cartoon creeping music. Such moments are priceless. You'll want to creep everywhere just to hear the music. I hope other games build on this simple concept.

The controls are a little touchy, but I was seduced by the overall package. Daffy's long-awaited sequel is not earth-shattering, but it's a lot of fun.
