The fourth installment in this franchise is known as Duck Life 4. The name is still dull, but the game and features changed since the previous game. Unlike the previous game, Duck Life 4 expands on the diversity of ducks that a player can choose.
The game starts with the player choosing one of three eggs and then hatching a duck and starting the first race. That is a tutorial stage of the game, and it jumps to the gameplay after several minutes.
Is the fourth installment worth the time?
The fourth Duck Life game brought some exciting changes to the gameplay as well as stages. The game is divided into six stages according to difficulty. Every stage has a shop, and the player can find and buy new ducks.
Grassland is the first stage that will introduce the world of Duck Life to the player. It only has two challengers (special races). One of them gives the player fifty bucks for the win, and the other one (Brown Duck) is the “boss” after which the player can progress to the next stage.
Swamp is the second area, and it introduces new features into the gameplay. The feature in question is the timing training which will prove valuable throughout this stage and in the future as well. Three challenges await the player. Two of them will reward the gamer with 100 bucks each while the third one has the key to the next stage.
The third area is the mountain, and it also introduces a new feature called accuracy. The difficulty increases in this stage as flying becomes an essential tool for overcoming it. The fourth area presents risk as it is set on the Glacier. It’s up to the player to either risk and proceed or hide from an avalanche.
The city is the fifth area of the Duck Life 4, and it introduces skill and balance as new features. It’s a very tricky area that tends to frustrate many players. The final area is the Volcano where the player competes against a variety of “bosses” that will, upon loss, give out new and rare eggs for the player to use.
