This game is a flash game, and thus, requires an external flash player to play, causing the game to be more difficult to access for the average person.


Duck Life: Treasure Hunt is the fifth installment of the DuckLife (series), released on June 17, 2014[1]. It plays completely differently from the first four games; being more of an endless runner instead of an idle racer.

"After the Fire Duck had been defeated... The volcano become dormant and the town returned to normal. Now, adventurers from around the world come to explore the volcano's cave in hope for treasure. And you are one of them!"

Tailor[edit | edit source]

In the tailor shop, you can buy various hats and clothes, some of which are matching pairs.

Witch Ducktor[edit | edit source]

The Witch Ducktor offers you coin magnets for each power-up. When you activate the respective power-up in-game, these will draw coins to you. They all cost 20000 coins to buy.

Cave[edit | edit source]

The cave is where all the action happens! Inside are obstacles, treasures, and rarities in endless runner gameplay. Hold down your mouse to fly, hit ducks, and collect coins. If you press space, your pet's special ability will be activated. Your pet's special ability may not work by pressing the space bar and you might have to press the "ready" icon in the bottom right corner of your screen. The treasure you can get is ancient diamonds, ancient statues, ancient bones, ancient seeds, and the adventurer's crown.

Power-ups[edit | edit source]

Power-ups are found in the cave and help you along the way. All power-ups go away when you hit an obstacle that would normally knock out your bird. They also change what terrain will be generated, suiting the power-up‘s mechanics.

  • Fire Bird: This power-up activates a Flappy Bird style gameplay. Rather than holding down your mouse to fly, you can repeatedly click on it to boost the bird's height. However, it does not break when in contact with the ground, unlike Flappy Bird.
  • Golem: This power-up activates a bird with high jumping ability. Pressing the mouse button will make the bird jump up to the top of the screen and glide back down. Clicking again while in the air will make it come down in a slam, cutting the airtime short.
  • Wind Rider: This power-up is the fastest. It speeds along through the cave and can jump higher than normal. Holding the jump button down while in the air causes the Wind Rider to slowly glide down. It bears a resemblance to a roadrunner.
  • Kong King: This power-up is the only one that does not look like a bird. Pressing the mouse button will make its fist that is attached by a vine stick on the roof, and then bring you up with it. You will now run on the roof until you press the mouse button again, which makes you fall back down.

Glitches[edit | edit source]

  • In the Make-a-Name section, the game might get soft locked.
  • Achievements can get stuck and fail to update with your progress (especially ones where you have to kill enemy ducks).
  • Upgrades for pets can sometimes be erased.
  • While playing, it may not let you fly nor let you use power-ups.
  • When clicking on a diamond pet in the pet shop, sometimes it will show the price as coins instead of diamonds.
  • Sometimes, on the phone and computer version, you will fly forever.
  • When you click to start the game, you get stuck and can not start.
  • When you go to the cave still with your umbrella when you drop yourself, you will go to the cave and fly around with an umbrella.
  • Sometimes your pet will go back to the egg and won't move.
  • Missions will spin randomly and not stop, so you can't do anything.
  • If you drag your duck to the left edge of the screen, it may soft-lock itself.
  • Sometimes when you get the wind rider, when you glide to the ground, you will not be able to jump or fly.
  • If using a pet that includes a protection ability, sometimes it will not work against laser dragons or fire dragons. If you activate it while being hit, it will still knock you out. If you move after or before the shot, you can continue running.
  • Sometimes the duck just spins around.

Remake[edit | edit source]

  • The Witch Ducktor is removed
  • A scientist was added to provide you with new purchasable items
