THE RANT: Who the hell would come up with a name like "Mega Duck" for a game system? Stupid ass name aside, the system itself is on about par with all the other failed Gameboy clones. The console is actually a little larger and thicker than a normal Gameboy. The screen is in black and white (but it's more like the GB's green and white,) although it looks like it's of a slightly higher quality. I don't see any blurring or anything on this one. Got the normal start, select, two fire buttons and cross pad. The cross pad is made up of four individual buttons which would make Street Fighter half circle motions hard, although I haven't seen any games for it yet that require that type of movement.
I got my Cougar Boy (the ultra rare Brazilian version) from a trade from a guy on the Assembler website. I ended up trading an unopened copy of Gran Turismo II and an "official" PS2 network adapter. Why it matters to some people whether or not a game has ever been opened is beyond me. After buying all that shit and paying shipping to Brazil I probably spent over $100. Then, a week after I got my Cougar Boy in the mail, I saw one on E-Bay for $30. Live and learn I suppose.
I have two games, Road Racer (drive a little car through a maze, collect gas, dodge bad guy cars) and a 4-in one pack in game with some space invaders clone, Tetris clone, shooter, and racing game. The games actually play rather well and are about par with first generation Gameboy games, which is more than the other clones from this timeframe can say. There's about 30 games for this machine.
THE GOOD: Ultra super rare in the US, and the Cougar boy being even more rare still. If you get one you'll definitely be the only kid on the block who has one.
THE BAD: No one will care.
THE UGLY: "Mega duck?"
