Hi everyone,

Yes i am going to try to recreate the infamous nes duck hunt game for the Atari 2600. However to avoid a lawsuit because of the name, i need your help in coming up with an original name. The name i like the most will become the new name of the game.

Sincerely,

Primordial Ooze

Although it was a Genesis game I think "Quackshot" is fitting.

How about Qwak! ? This was a 1970s Atari arcade light gun game, and it probably influenced Duck Hunt.

They actually trademarked Duck Hunt?

Is this going to be a light gun game (maybe optional)?

Letting my feeble imagination run, I come up with:
Duck Hunting
Hunting Ducks
Shoot the Duck
Duck Hunter
Duck Gunner
Dead Ducks
Quacker Blaster
Donald Destruction
Kill Daffy
Fowl Play
Waste the Waterfowl
Waterfowl Down
Mallard Massacre
Marsh Mayhem
Blind Ambition
Feathered Frenzy
Feathers a Flyin'
Ducks Don't Duck
Shotgun Fun
Full Choke
Trigger Happy
Duck Pond
Ducks Away!
Dinner on the Wing
Duck's Demise
Goose B Gone

I like Qwak and Quacker Blaster. Qwak i believe is copyrighted by Atari so I'm afraid to use it. Quacker Blaster is my alternate and a suitable alternate at that. Keep em coming, still looking for a third alternate. Yes this will be a lightgun game, but joystick support will be considered.

Sincerely,

Quacker Barrel (s) ?

(Barrel in this case meaning barrel of a gun, and "Barrels" working great because it's a double-barrel shotgun? :D )

So far I vote heavily for BigO's "Duck Duck Boom". That's a riot!

I would also propose:
Bird Blaster
Shotgun Jimmy and the Frazzled Fowl

Hi everyone,

Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions, i decided to use quacker blaster as the name and a website has been setup. Here's the link to the site http://quackerblaster.tk. Iam quite busy at the moment as something important has come up, and unfortinately it will effect the progress of the game. I hope to have at least a graphics demo out by early next year so bear with me.

Sincerely,

Primordial Ooze

Duck Hunt is the best name for it. I'd be willing to bet Nintendo will never give you the time of day let alone a C&D.
