SLITHERING snakes and clockwork yellow ducks are your enemies in Quackshot.

Your task is to keep everything quiet in the Acme Clockwork Toy Factory. But as you hear strange noises and start to investigate, you are pursued by giant ducks and green snakes and other wacky wind-ups. The only way to escape is to destroy the clockworks with your stun gun and duckbuster bombs.

You have a time limit on each stage, collecting keys and bonuses to transport you to the next phase of your mission and add to your score.

You have to negotiate the maze of corridors, which are obstructed by toys or dead ends. There are 16 screens for you to pass.

The graphics are smooth and as basic as any other maze game. It is reasonably priced if you like this sort of run-of-the-mill game.
