Waddles the Duck

Waddles the Duck is a NES game created for the NESDev 2016 coding competition. It was completed on 1/31/17, and included on the multicart from that year.

I would recommend downloading and play the game this was based on, Eversion over this one, but it’s here if you want it!

The basic story is, you are a duck taken out of his own timeline, trying to find his way home.
