Windows - 1997
Description of Duckman: The Graphic Adventures of a Private Dick
One of the rarest CD-ROM adventure games of all time due to its limited distribution, Duckman: The Legend of The Fall is a great game based on a popular TV cartoon of the same name that airs on USA Network, which in turn was based on the underground comic created by Everett Peck.
The story begins with you, Duckman, taking a long-overdue break from your TV show at a Hollywood spa. You soon learn that you have been replaced on the show by the new Duckman, a macho replacement hired in your absence. Unfortunately for you, he has become incredibly popular with the studio, the cast, and even the show's fans. As the original Duckman, you must find a way back onto the show and reclaim your star status. Along the way, you will find that your old enemy, King Chicken is behind the whole thing and is planning on murdering your family for revenge.
Duckman is based on the improved engine last used in Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity, i.e. traditional inventory-based point-and-click adventure. One of the annoying things about the otherwise excellent Virtual Stupidity is the game's tendency to pop in and out of a window for cutscenes. Thanks to full-screen Direct X support, this does not happen in Duckman: the cutscenes happen right inside the gameworld, thus maintaining the continuity and suspension of disbelief. True to the game's pedigree, the dialog is very witty, and full of quips from the TV shows that fans will recognize.
On the downside, the game is shorter than average, and very easy. Beginners should be able to finish it with little or no difficulty, while experienced gamers will be able to finish it in a few sittings. Still, great humor and plot makes Duckman a good game that's well worth a play through for everyone. Thumbs up!

great game, based on a adult animated series starring Jason Alexander that it surprisingly good and a head of its time.
don't bother trying to install it directly from "iso" or run it directly from "full rip" file, it does not work on modern systems, i tried twice on my old 32-bit PC with no luck, the insallation from iso went fine (under win 95 compatibility settings), but when i try to launch the game directly from exe it tries to load, then i get error my graphics driver does not support 320X200 somthing like that. but thankfully this game is supported on ScummVM (ver 2.1.1 and up) and works like a charm. all you need is the "data" file to run it in ScummVM.

The ISO version was corrupted according to windows 8 built-in mounter which I have read is unreliable but don't feel like downloading alternates. The ripped version attempted to start but quickly failed saying my graphics driver did not support 320X200 Mode X. the alternatives loading methods I tried either failed or were too complicated for me to figure out how to properly set up.
