Duck Hunt

You know something, dog? Mocking someone who's obviously frustrated... and holding a gun... with one shot remaining... not the best plan. Man, I shot that dog a lot.

wondered if it was a screen shot initially. Then I noticed that the dog actually looks really good! I love this...and thanks for stealing the game I was doing.

you did it better.

This is really cool. I actually laughed out loud when I saw it, which I only do when something is really funny. I love the digital looking background with the detailed dog. Great character design on the dog. I shot that dog a lot too. I hated that dog. Great job Shane!

Ha. I was wondering why he looked so concerned, but after picturing that gun pointing at him it all becomes clear. I loved this game. I wish the dog looked that good in the game.

HA HA HA! (I win Brett.)
I love that game too, I always felt guilty if I shot the dog, but shooting the ducks...! That was another story. I too thought this was a screen capture initially (nicely done) but caught on when I saw the dog. His expression is hysterical.

I used to cheat at this game, and sit right next to the TV with the end of the gun right against the tv screen. I never missed a duck, so the dog never taunted me.

Wow, if only games could look this good... Wait, some DO now, don't they? Well, almost.

Very cleverly done, mixing bulky pixels and smooth lines.

Lindy, I cheated at this game, too. Otherwise that stupid dog would have been constantly laughing at me.

Shane, wonderful work... Love the blending of 80's pixel color with 21st century hound dog design.The only thing that would make this pic more perfect is if you hadn't missed ducks #6 and 9.

I can just see li'l Shane, gun in hand, looking at the laughing dog and saying, "No, Ma. Old Yeller was my dog... I'll do it."

No, the red ducks are the ones I hit. It was 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10 that were the problems.

Adrian Ropp said...

Ah. I never had a mix of colors on the "HIT" section when I played, so I didn't get it. I stand corrected. Yeah, that dog's goin' down.

Who knows, you may get the chance to hit the dog when the Wii comes out with Ultimate Duck Hunt. Ah, who am I kidding. It's Nintendo, of course they wouldn't do that...unless they want to make it more realistic and have you bury your own dog *makes shoveling motion with Wiimote*
