Prepare yourselves, iOS gamers! Duckers has hit the App Store! Now, before you begin quaking with excitement over my very generic opening, allow me to explain to you exactly what this little indie title is.
Duckers is, as aforementioned, an iOS game, available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Now that we have the obvious out of the way, I can proceed to cut to the chase. In this game, you will play as one of several cutesy critters, only two of which appear to be ducks. An easy way to describe it would be a reverse Doodle Jump. Rather than jumping up for the high score, you are digging downwards into the earth in search of treasure, gems, and secret hidden items. There are, of course, your standard arrays of death-causing obstacles—it wouldn’t be much of a game without them. And for those of you with a competitive streak, (*cough*like me*cough*) Duckers supports Game Center and has its own set of achievements for you to uncover and enjoy.
Duckers is brought to you by Retro Dreamer. The game is free, but it supports in-app micro-purchases. More information about this game can be found on its official iTunes page or on the developers’ official website.
