Deadly Duck's job is to score points by blasting his enemy the Crabs, their Bricks and the Dragonflies.
Deadly can keep shooting as long as he avoids getting bonked by a falling Brick or hit by a Dragonfly's Bomb.
You begin with four Deadly Ducks and receive a bonus Duck for shooting all eight Crabs in each play level. Although you may acquire an unlimited supply of extra Ducks, no more than three will be shown at the bottom of the screen.
There are eight crusty Crabs in each level of Deadly Duck who want to dunk Deadly with their Bricks. These Bricks will float on the water for a short time, temporarily blocking Deadly's movement on the pond. An "on target" Brick means good-bye to our feathered friend.
Dragonflies are allies of the cranky old Crabs and cannot be destroyed. They should be approached with caution. If one is hit with a Bill Bullet you gain ten points, but beware, the now angry dragonfly will drop a bomb aimed directly at poor Deadly.
