- Qwak -

Qwak is a rather strange name for a game and even if you consider that you play a duck it's still strange why you would name it like that. Anyways qwak is an action/puzzle game where you have to guide a duck to collect all the keys on a level opening the doorway to the next level where you have to start over again. If only it were this easy because the keys are often placed in such a way that you can't get them easily and you have to avoid creatures that are out to get you as well as the scenery that contains traps. You can kill enemies by throwing eggs at them and later levels require you to collect powerups before you are able to dispose of them. After ten levels you will be faced by a boss character and you have to defeat him in a certain amount of time to continue.

Qwak is a simple puzzle game with plenty of levels to play, it doesn't offer anything groundbraking in any way and as such is only an average game. You can play it with two players working cooperatively which makes it somewhat easier and more fun but I doubt it will hold your interest long enough for you to finish all 80 levels. The BBC version is a bit of a strange one because I can't say for certain that it is the same game. There are plenty of similarities beside the title as you also play a duck, you collect keys to open gates and the way bricks fall out from underneath you is exactly the same. For some reason the game doesn't have any reference to a company that released it so unless someone who made the game tells me otherwise I assume it is the same game.

Overal rating: 6/10

This game was released for two different systems here are some notes:
Amiga Released in 1993.
Game has been tested but not completed with winUAE v0.9.91.
Pretty colorfull graphics but the gameplay is only average.
BBC Micro Released in ?.
Game has been tested but not completed with BeebEm v2.0.
Looks like a simpler version of the amiga but with the most ridiculous control keys I've ever seen! Capslock for left, right-ctrl for right, shift for fire and enter to jump. I wonder who would come up with something like that.
