Flying Saucer[edit]

I can remember the flying saucer from when I played this as a kid - I was on a DOS PC though. It was pretty rare to see... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.97.250.138 (talk) 02:20, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Sopwith[edit]

I remember the flight sequences being very similar to Sopwith (computer game). Can someone verify this? --Abdull (talk) 07:35, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Removal of material from this page[edit]

The following has been removed from this page:

==Trivia==

  • The contest between Scrooge and Glomgold is reminiscent of the one they had in the Firefly Fruit Contest four-parter from the series. Although the contest on the show was held by the Grand Kishke of the Island of Macaroon, in this game, it is being run by Dime Magazine. However, at the end of the game, Scrooge and Glomgold do weigh their fortunes on giant scales on the Island of Macaroon, and the player can make a trip there to drop off their acquired treasure for safekeeping.
  • Many of the locations and treasures featured in the game have been taken directly from specific episodes of the television show. Examples include the locales of Montedumas and Swansylvania, which originate from the episodes The Duck in the Iron Mask and Ducky Horror Picture Show respectively. Examples of treasures include Drakesphere's lost play from the episode Much Ado About Scrooge and the pearl of wisdom from the episode of the same name.
  • One of the game's treasures is Bombastium. If you manage to obtain it, Gyro will use it to build a matter transporter that can transport you to any location from Scrooge's office instantly, although it may malfunction and send the player somewhere else from time to time.
  • Fenton Crackshell has a small cameo in this game as Scrooge's accountant. Although he appears, he doesn't appear to actually do anything aside from reminding the player to stop swimming in the vault and continue on with the game. Additionally, Fenton wears a blue jacket in this game, even though he wears a purple one on the show. Gizmoduck is nowhere to be found.
  • In at least the Amiga version of the game, a flying saucer can rarely be seen during the flight sequence. The condition which triggers the event is not known.
  • The DOS game features copy protection in the form of a unique password system. When the game is booted up, you must use a key script (located in the game manual) to translate symbols on the screen. If you fail, you are identified to the game as a Beagle Boy invader, and it will send the user back to the DOS prompt to try again, and there is no way to play the game without deciphering the code.

I would like the Duck Tale's editors opinion of these deletions. Ikip (talk) 21:23, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

The trivia is fine to be removed. What makes people think that this kind of stuff belongs in an encyclopedia formatted like that is beyond me. SchuminWeb (Talk) 15:56, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
