Epic Dumpster Bear 2: He Who Bears Wins

If you haven’t played the first Dumpster Bear, you should know that it’s not just a meme game. It’s a fast-paced, actually pretty good platformer. Each level has 3 hidden red coins to collect and speedrun medals to achieve. There are optional, more challenging levels that are unlocked through secret exits and spending the yellow coins you collect while playing. And there are goofy boss battles and over-dramatic cutscenes. The soundtrack is actually original and composed specifically for Dumpster Bear, and it’s a real highlight of the game.

Such an awesome platformer, and the soundtrack is all bangers.

Torn on this one, but in the end the negatives over shadowed the few positives.

It’s nice looking, and the music is fine, the controls are limited, but fine.

The tower options are pretty limited, and oddly confusing. There are (so far) eighteen options, but many have the exact same name and differ only in cost.

There are circles and octagons that act as pathing as well as gun placement, and each offers nine tower types. Progress is straight, one thru five, with no variation and no information regarding what you are getting for your money, which is quite irritating.

Played and enjoyed the first game.

A few more bells and whistles with this incarnation.

At the low price, you can’t go too far wrong.

while its great to relive these games it becomes really annoying to play through the minigames so many times, i feel like not only this interation but the others(up to space) would benifit from some sort of “cheat” page after you beat the game where you could do things like mess with the ducks levels and stats

I think this game is a good collection of the OG trilogy of Duck Life (DuckLife). This game allows people to play the classic three games of the series In true HD. I recently replayed the first three Duck Life flash games (No, not the Unity remakes) for comparison.

Some notable changes I found were that first off, the training minigames (excluding climbing) are entirely mouse-controlled. This is most likely due to this game being made originally for mobile devices. Flying training seems to be the most affected by this. Another thing I noticed is that on the menu screen, as well as the shop and race selection screens for Origin and World Champion, hovering over things no longer provides helpful text. (Again, probably because of it being on mobile) Also, for some reason, the flying animations in Evolution for the birdy duck, beefy duck, athlete duck, merduck, and supreme duck have the same wing flap as the other ducks. (Spoiler) The Cheats and Level Editor in World Champion are notably missing. (End of Spoiler)
