|Hello, and welcome to the super-sekrit bonus part of my web page! Well ok, it shouldn't have been all that difficult to find, but still... this section details a few of the glitches that can be found in Duck Tales for NES. As far as I know, these glitches can be accessed in both prototype and final released versions.|
There are at least two occasions in this game where you can|
trigger these weird graphic glitch thingies. I found both of
these by pure accident about ten years ago, and at the time,
they freaked me out. I wrote to Nintendo Power ranting about
this, but they probably figured me for a nut. Can't blame 'em,
STEP 1: Get to this screen, which,|

to isolate is the second from the
right, on the bottom row.
STEP 3: Thwack!
OMIGOD! WHAT THE HELL IS THAT
STEP 4: Unlike the Amazon Penguin,
this thing just shoots skyward. If
you hit it from the right side, it
will eventually hit the ceiling and
once again, turn into the white
circle of mystery. Hit it from the
left and it'll fly off screen and
presumably, onward to heaven. Maybe
it's for the best.
Well! And people said I was nuts when I claimed to have found|
a bonus stage years ago with different cloud graphics. So without
Looking at it now, it appears to be an unintentional glitch, as
First of all, I owe my thanks to my fellow FeFeA Brother Smeg,
