Qwak Released for PC on Archive Games

Jamie Woodhouse's classic action arcade platformer arrives as first paid game on independent online distribution platform.

Qwak was released today on the Archive Games distribution platform. In Qwak, players guide a duck through 70 fun and challenging levels. Players try to gain higher scores by collecting fruit. Players will also find numerous other objects in their adventure: keys to unlock doors, jet boots to fly across the screen, umbrellas that cause fruit to rain from the sky, and eggs to throw at the player's enemies. Many more secret hidden bonuses await those who play through the game! Players do not have to brave alone the six visually stunning worlds depicted in Qwak -- they can bring along a friend to help them in the cooperative gameplay mode. Players can post their high scores to a global high scores list.

Qwak was initially released nearly twenty years ago for the BBC Micro by game developer Jamie Woodhouse. In today's PC release, the classic arcade action gameplay has remained from that age -- though the graphics and sound have been updated. The end result is a highly polished arcade experience which is fun for gamers new to the franchise and those who have played Qwak on another platform before.
