1st version of "Bacci & the ducklings" + AnimEdi 16 bit
A downloadable Bacci 16 Bit
BACCI and the ducklings v.2.4:
The video game "Bacci & the Ducklings" released a few years ago on this site (32 Bit version), has a predecessor, developed by me in 2003 with the intention of publishing it in the Talent-Zone section of The Game Machine magazine; at first I was in favor, but then I got the impression that they would keep my copyrights and pay me very little, so I put it aside and, when I had time, I converted it to 32 / 64 Bit for all operating systems, from Windows 2000 to Windows 10; this is exactly what I propose to you on this page; it also includes the Config editor and AnimEdi (16 Bit) to create new levels and new graphics.
The limit is that it runs on Windows systems no higher than Windows XP.
"Bacci & the Ducklings" (16 Bit) on INTEL / AMD machines with 80x86 processors and MCGA graphics card, at least VGA, has a much higher frame / rate is smoother and flicker-free.
The extra features of the 32 Bit version are not available in this version (music, video recording, saving, high resolution graphics).
However, any VGA, VESA, XGA graphics card, as long as it supports MCGA mode, any monitor, CRT or LED or liquid crystal, is fine on this game.
In this tiny video game, Bacci is a super-equipped hunter of the Ligurian Alps, who is in the midst of flocks of birds of various kinds. The aim of the game is to take down all the birds, without running out of ammunition. When the number of live birds is greater the number of ammunition available to BACCI, he has to go home with the pive in the bag. Attention, however: BACCI has some rivals; that is deals with reckless and envious hunters, who, stealing the wings of Icarus, will try to steal the game from BACCI, only afterwards having reduced him to game.
BACCI has a jacket at his disposalbulletproof, a rifle, a machine gun and a radar. By hitting a macroscopic letter, it it will xplode, taking both to hell both birds than hunters who are close to it.
If the time available to you is exhausted, BACCI must run to his wife with great regret, who is waiting for him furiously on the door, but in this case he lost one bet with his friends; if instead he is managed to clear the sky of allbirds, she will have to cook, for a whole year, bird stew, with great pleasure of her husband, who is very greedy of it.
