Duck Life 4: King of Ducks

Duck Life 4 is the fourth installment released on February 12, 2012.

Gameplay Edit

First, you go to the Egg Pick stage. Here, you pick the egg you want. After, picking an egg, you pick the design it. In older versions of the game, you had to chose to have a yellow, brown, or white duck. After that, a duck instantly hatches from it. The color of the duck depends on what type of egg you purchased. Next, you test your duck if it can reach the finish line. However, your duck collapses so you need to give it seed which gives the duck energy. After your duck eats the seed, the duck can now reach the finish line. Because the duck wasn't very fast, you can eventually train as you progress. Third, you'll meet Joe the running trainer. You can talk to him to train. He also shows a duck who wants to race with you. You can click on the "!" over its head. He also shows the shop where you buy eggs, haircuts, and hats. The last thing he shows is the windmill which is a tournament. Tournaments are sets of 3 races in a row, without breaks. You can choose a different duck in each race. If you win a tournament, you unlock a new area on the map. And that's about it. Use the mouse to look around the area. You will then click anything you want. There are 6 Areas to unlock.

Area 1: Grassland Edit

Just click on the training duck, Joe, the running trainer, to train. The game has three stages: Testing speed, endurance, and reactions. You then click either Start Training or Back. If you click Start Training, you will go to the first stage: Speed. (Before you go to the stage, you will need to choose your duck - if you buy a new one at the Shop.)

Speed instructions need to move left and right in order to go to the hole and jump to the bottom and stay on the screen as long as you can. If you move out of the screen, your training is over.

Endurance instructions are to move left and right. At the sky on the screen, there will be noticed which is, either warning or $ signs. Go below the $ sign and avoid the warning as long as you can. If you get hit by an obstacle, your training is over.

Reaction instructions are to use 1, 2, 3, or 4 keys. You will jump to a rock when you see numbers on the rock. Now according to the number, press the number on your keyboard and you will jump. When you lose, your training will be over.

Challenges Edit

You have two challengers: A white Duck and Brown Duck. Brown is an invite to the tournament while White Duck is $60. You will be able to beat the White Duck with about a running level of 11 and an energy level of 21. You need at least level 10.0 in running if you need to race with the Brown duck. You will be able to beat the brown duck with about an energy level of 39 and a running level of 31. You can also win the tournament if you have one duck with the same statistics.

Area 4: Glacier Edit

Training Edit

This training has speed, risk, and reactions.

In Speed(Climb Training #1), you use the left, right, and up arrow keys. You move using left and right arrow keys to move and up arrow key to climb ladders. Try to stay on the screen as long as you can. If you go off-screen, your training is over.

In Risk(Climb Training #2), you use the up to climb up, right to hide from the avalanche, and left to exit the cave after an avalanche. You'll have 1 minute to do this. If you get caught in an avalanche or 1 minute has elapsed, your training is over.

In Reactions(Climb Training #3), use the left and right to jump on each side of the canyon. Try not to get caught on edges. If you get caught then it's either the training is over or your duck has moved to the end of the glacier.

Challenges Edit

You have 3 challenges: a black-spotted duck, a grey duck, and a white duck. The grey duck will give you the tournament ticket while The black-spotted and white ducks will give you $200. You need exactly level 0 in flying since the white duck doesn't know how to fly (this requirement isn't in the latest version) and can only race you if you don't either. It is a good idea to buy a new duck egg and train it in every skill except flying, On the Android version of the game, A screen will pop up saying "Keep your adventure alive by purchasing the next town!" The only way to unlock the Glacier and continue your adventure is by paying $0.99. This doesn't apply for the iOS version of the game, because you only have to purchase the game to play it.

The lilac duck will give you the Orange Key for the box and $300 if you win. You need at least level 120 in climbing to race(this requirement isn't in the lasted version anymore) with the light blue Duck. If you win, , you'll get the Green Key and $300.

When you get all the keys, go to the box and the button will appear to open the box. When you click the button, a detonator will show up. Click it and the volcano will blow up. When it blows up, a Fire Duck will appear.
You need level 150 in everything (running, swimming, flying, climbing, jumping) to race him (optional, this requirement isn't in the latest version). Then, you'll race him. However, your duck will need your help to beat him and avoid the lava. Use the arrow keys (or in the mobile version, the arrow buttons) to control the duck. If you touch the lava, a screen will show that your duck was rushed to the hospital and 4 weeks later made a full recovery, then it will show your duck saying that him/her will not touch lava again. When you beat him, you'll earn the crown, which can be worn by one of your ducks, an egg panel, allowing you to customize a new member of your duck team however you like, and an arcade machine, which allows you to play training mini games in the volcano.

Glitches Edit

  • In running training 2 if you are on the edge of the screen you can quickly press left then right to get stuck in the wall.
  • If you go out (but keep the app open) while doing training your points will still slowly go up and you won't die.
  • Sometimes, the duck cannot be named, instead, the game itself chooses/you have to click the random name to see which name you want and you will need to continue rather than naming it.
  • If you click on a challenger on the challenge screen, you'll go to the running trainer.
  • If you drag a duck all the way to the left in Grassland near the energy seeds, you can get infinite energy seeds. ( You need to buy a seed first then drag to the corner for it to work)
  • On some sites, when racing with the Grey Duck in the Glacier, she'll stop and your duck will win, no matter where you were in the race.
  • If you play the Arcade machine you won from the Fire Duck, the game stops working and will only stay on the arcade game selection screen. This will continue even upon opening the game and there will be no way to fix this. Thus, this will lead you to have to erase your data/restart or just don't play.
  • If you have the Big Shiny Cone Hat in speed glacier training, you can climb the ladders above you.
  • If you have the Viking Hat in risk glacier training, the avalanche will still knock you down even if you are in a cave.
  • After reaching a score of 6000-7000 in reactions glacier training, the duck will climb so fast that certain ledges no longer trap it. If you exploit this glitch too much, the duck may land on the outside of the map but continue to climb for several minutes, earning you a score of up to 50,000 points before the game ends.
  • If you carry on training in some sites you will level up further than level 150.
  • In the second mini-game in the swamp area, if you swim for a while and then let the duck fall onto the ground, it will slow the duck down but the timer will continue and you can then get a few more points. Depending on the angle and length of it, you can get from 15-100 or even in some cases 786 extra points.
  • Sometimes, during the third running training, your duck will jump off the screen.
  • When you are on the volcano stage in the boss fight you cannot jump when there is a little hill.
  • In Flying Training 4, you can drag your duck off the screen and none of the obstacles will affect it anymore which makes you invincible. If you continue to do this the obstacles will eventually disappear altogether.
  • The real duck life is on
  • Your duck won't race the champion duck for some reason
  • In the glacier, the climbing trainer takes the place of the gray duck, saying they don't know how to fly, which is what the white duck says. The white duck will give you a tournament invite, instead of the gray duck, which takes the place of the climbing trainer. However, in the climbing minigame select screen, the climbing trainer is shown.
  • In the volcano, if you have already beaten the Fire Duck and gotten the All Trainers ability, if you max out all abilities and race the black duck, at the rectangle obstacle in the race the climbing somersault will make you fly in other directions, yet your duck will still go forward as intended.
