Mutant Duck Invasion Arcade Style Game Review
With a name like Mutant Duck Invasion I could not turn down the opportunity to try this arcade style mobile game on Android (also on Iphone). I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started up the game, but to my pleasure I was greeted with some oddly addicting music…and that’s just the beginning!

Introduction to the Game
The goal of the game is to stop mutant ducks from destroying your city. To accomplish this incredible task you enlist the power of a massive cannon located on the bottom of your screen. It is your job to destroy these mutant feathery menaces by tapping your screen and shooting them down.
As you progress through the game you collect feathers. Feathers are used to purchase upgrades to better defend against the foul mutants or…mutant foul. Each level gets increasingly more difficult when new mutant ducks join in on the attacks. Each mutant duck has its own special abilities that add to the challenge.

Overall, the gameplay is smooth. There is no lag and the game does not drain your battery. Starting off Mutant Duck Invasion takes a small amount of getting used to. The cannon does not fire as fast as I hoped it would. After a little investigation into the upgrades I noticed you can unlock cannon fire cooldown reduction using feathers. The upgrade is inexpensive and makes a difference.
I played to level three before doing any type of upgrades. It was then I realized if I am going to stop this invasion that I must use the tools available! I gathered up my feathers from the fallen ducks (they are actually gathered for you as you go, no worries).
In the game shop you have a large amount of upgrades at your disposal. If you find you are not collecting feathers as fast as you would like you can also purchase them for a modest price (it’s not expensive).
I am happy with the gameplay. This game will stay installed on my Android device for a while. When I find myself with nothing to do, I hop on and kill some mutant ducks. The game is easy to pick up and put down as needed. Progress is saved, so you don’t lose feathers you have collected.
The hardest part of this mobile game is getting used to timing your shots. It can actually be quite tough at first. This is a mobile game that is not without challenge. My advice is not to get discouraged if you can’t get past the first couple of waves. Collect feathers and buy some upgrades, they make a huge difference.
As I mentioned earlier, the music that plays while the game is starting up is somewhat…addicting and catchy. I find myself sitting on the main menu of the game just listening to the music play for a minute or two. This is usually where I space out and amp myself up for the battles yet to come. The music does a good job of helping.
The music during gameplay is not overwhelming and it does a good job of setting the mood. In my opinion the music in Mutant Duck Invasion is a compliment to the game and makes it that much more enjoyable.
While Mutant Duck Invasion is not on par with Destiny 2, the graphics are enjoyable. The ducks are animated and each has its own look and style of flying. If I had to say it reminds me of anything, I would say it reminds me of the old Garfield cartoons. Why? I don’t know, it just does, perhaps it’s the color scheme and the old-school cartoon looking ducks..
I did not notice any lag issues nor any glitches. This also makes the game an overall smooth and enjoyable experience.
Mutant Duck Invasion is a mobile game that gives you plenty of replay value. Let’s face it, we play some mobile games to pass the time. Mutant Duck Invasion is a fun and challenging way of passing time that doesn’t require lots of thinking and puzzle solving. You start up and you shoot ducks, that’s it.
Start up and shoot ducks may sound very simple, yet each wave brings its own challenge. As you progress there are new mutant ducks to add to the difficulty. The downside I can see to this mobile game is the possibility of feeling repetitive. If you geek out on the game for 12 hours for 3 days straight it may get that way fast. If you play casually and have fun with it I think it will take a little while for this one to feel to repetitive.
