Ed the Duck
Any game that
bases itself on a ridiculous puppet from Children's BBC is asking for
a kickin'. Ed the Duck for those of you who are either too young, don't
live in Britain, or have forgotten, was a ridiculous glove puppet that
original hung out with the knobbish Andy Crane and later an equally obnoxious
arse wipe called Andi Peters. He spent most of his time quacking and pulling
off hilarious japes in between childrens programs. I always felt sorry
for the poor bloke who had to spend most of his time crouching under the
desk with his hand up Ed's bottom. Tragically for a short period Ed mania
gripped the country, and the infamous phrase "Ed the Duck bites your legs"
swept the playgrounds. It is from this period that this blatant Rainbow
Islands clone springs from. Fortuantly the game isn't quite as bad as
Ed himself. It's reasonable graphically, though the majority of it seems
to be almost lifted from other games, namely Rainbow Islands. Unfortuantly
Ed is as crap in the game as he is in real life. He bizarrely is able
to freeze his opponents, but that's it, he then has to run away before
they unfreeze. Ed the Duck could have been a pretty nice little game but
as it is it's too frustrating to be worth bothering with.
Zogging Hell Rating: 5/10
Typically the cheat for Ed is as crap as the game itself. Hit the left mouse button during gameplay to skip the level. Oh dear....
