Count Duckula's arch enemy Von Goosewing has fixed a rocket to one of the castle turrets, blasting the vegetarian Vampire and his cronies into outer space.
Duckula though, thinks the motion of the turret is a side effect of drinking Nanny's potion (understandable really), but he soon realises their true predicament when they hit an asteroid field.
Fortunately, Tremendous Terence, Count Duckula's hero, comes to the rescue, knocking their 'turret spacecraft' on to a nearby planet surface.
Oh dear though, it's the planet Cute! - Yuk! Duckula hates cute things, and he soon realises that if he and his pals stay on this planet for any length of time, they too will become cute... aarrrgghh!
All the cuties, collies and teddybears want to give our pal a big wet kiss (Blah!) to speed up the cuteness process.
There's only one thing for it: Duckula, Igor and Nanny have got to get off this planet, and quick, but they have lost the nightning conductor in the crash landing, and they will need this to escape.
Can Tremendous Terence help? Will they get away? It's up to you.
Game Play: Planet Cute
You have to guide Duckula past various obstacles and cute toys to find the lightning conductor. On the way you collect cereal packet tops which help Duckula become like his hero Tremendous Terence for a short time, and be invulnerable to the effects of the cuties.
You can also pick up bottles of ketchup that Duckula can squirt at the "cuties", rendering them temporarily harmless.
Duckula can call on Tremendous Terence to help him get past really awkward obstacles, but only a limited number of times, and when Duckula meets up with Igor, he is refreshed with broccoli sandwiches, so allowing his search for the lightning conductor to continue.
Finally, if you have successfully kept Duckula from becoming cute, the lightning conductor is seen, but a large lovable puppy toy is in the way. Igor has already done all he can and Tremendous Terence cannot be contacted at the moment. That just leaves Nanny. Will she be able to help get Duckula past the puppy and retrieve the lightning conductor?
Hints And Tips
In the main game, you have plenty of time so don't rush. Time your jumps to the movement of the platforms, which follow a set pattern. Fire sauce at 'Cuties' to get past them. Top up your supply of sauce by collecting sauce bottles. Collect four cereal packet tops to gain temporary invulnerability. If you find a screen too difficult, call Tremendous Terence, but remember, you can only use him once.
