OH NO!, the duck-pals have been taken prisoner by a robot invasion!

Find your fellow ducks and combine your abilities to escape the robots fort!

CUACK!!

Controls (explained in-game but here's a summary)
Arrow Keys to move.
Space Bar to interact with close objects ('hold' to move boxes,
and press to switch levers when you're next to them)
Press X to shoot (only one duck can do this).
1, 2 and 3 (number buttons) will switch your characters (once you find them).

('M' will mute the audio, and 'F' toggles fullscreen)

This game was made within a week of work for the Construct 3 Jam with the theme "Good things come in threes".

I was motivated by the concept of a 3-character based 'puzzle' game drifting a bit from the platformer formula, and experiment with simple attributes that could make each character different but complementary, this is the result.

While designing the puzzles, so many more possibilities came to mind, more assets and obstacles, and more ways to take advantage of each duck's ability, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this small selection of stages; Who knows?, it could evolve into a larger game if the response is good.

Since the game was made within such a brief period of time with experimentation in mind, not much testing was made regarding the difficulty, which means the puzzles can be really though (or really easy) for a short game (some MAY have more than one way to complete...).

That said, give it a try and let me know your impressions!!

If you're a bit lost, here's a few TIPS
-Keep in mind the effects of each switch you press! (as some will happen off-screen!)
-Sometimes one duck can solve more than one problem by itself!

I am a fan of Lost Vikings and all games similar and true to that spirit. The gameplay of this game was very good.

The splash duck and the brick duck were interesting to operate with, but the helium duck was somewhat underdeveloped all did was just this one thing of flying over spikes. Game should be balanced by either giving helium duck new ability or some other traps that helium duck would bypass in a more interesting manner.

As for all games from Butzboo - graphics are superb!

The main reason score is not higher is because game was too short. Had it 2.5 times as much levels it would be a 5/5 from me.

Very nice The Lost Vikings alike concept. Nicely done. But the pace is a little slow. Could be faster.

Holy shit, that last level was some chip's challenge shit. Great puzzles, great characters, I loved that each duck had such a weird design and simple name 'Helium duck' 'Brick duck' and the cute little noises they made between switches. The idle animations were pretty cute too, though pushing blocks obviously looked a bit silly. Anyway, I had a lot of fun. Favorite Duck was BRICK DUCK.
