DuckTales: Remastered is an enhanced remake of DuckTales and just like in the original game the player controls the greedy Scrooge McDuck. The game is based on the animated TV series DuckTales which originally aired from 1987 to 1990. As in the original game, Scrooge hunts for treasure around the world, including on the moon, in the Himalayas, and in the Amazonian rain-forests. While the grand portions of the level designs are unaltered, there are some prolonged scenes and action sequences, as well as a brand new storyline. The remake also includes a new introduction and tutorial level, as well as some altered boss fights. While the main platform gameplay remains 2D, there are 3D environments in the background, blended with two dimensional sprites for characters. The original voice actors from the TV series have reprised their roles for this game.
