    Daffy Duck in Hollywood is a platform game released for the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Master System, and Sega Game Gear in 1995.

    Story

    Daffy Duck in Hollywood MD, Introduction.png

    Introduction

    The mad Professor Duck Brain has stolen Yosemite Sam's Golden Movie Awards. He is holding them for a million dollar ransom and has left a trail of dynamite to deter anyone from pursuing him. Sam calls upon Daffy Duck to recover his awards and deal with the mad professor and his henchmen.

    Gameplay

    Level select

    The game is a platformer starring Daffy Duck, who explores levels based on movie genres. Daffy must collect all bundles of dynamite to unlock the next section of the level and eventually the exit. Each section is blocked off by a wall; if Daffy stands next to the wall without collecting all of the dynamite, an arrow points him back the way he came. When he collects all of the dynamite, the game alerts him "GO!" to notify him that the blocker is unlocked. Daffy must also find all of Yosemite Sam's Golden Movie Awards hidden in the levels to get the good ending.

    Daffy walks with Left or Right, runs by holding C with a Left or Right, and crawls with Down-left or Down-right. Many items, including bundles of dynamite, are in hidden rooms accessible only by crawling. He ducks with Down and jumps with B. He can jump farther while running. Daffy's weapon of choice is a bubble cannon to shoot enemies, which he fires with A. The bubble gun traps enemies in bubbles, which Daffy can pop by touching. Enemies return if Daffy does not pop their bubbles.

    Daffy has three health points. When he loses all three health points, he can take one more hit before he loses a life. He also loses a life if time runs out. He restarts the level at the beginning of the last section. Time is replenished at the start of each section. Daffy is also ambushed in various cartoonish ways if he stands idle for too long, which also costs him a life.

    Items

    Items bubble up from bubbles in the ground. Upgrades for the bubble gun last until the end of the level.
