Shameless ("Let the duck hunt begin ..." says the opening screen) remake of the coin-op arcade game "Duck Hunt" which was one of the first to use a (tethered) "light gun" controller, this one uses mouse or keyboard.

Fire your shotgun from a water's edge toward helmet-wearing ducks. Your white-gloved hand makes me believe you must look like Elmer Fudd. The gun holds just a silly two shells, you can reload it using the right mouse button if you have one. The ducks perform antics, such as deploying parachutes and shooting paintballs (a euphemism for poop) in your face to obstruct your view.

The game lacks polish, like the "consistent user interface" we here so much about on Macintosh. This is a v1.0 and probably was ported from some other system. The screen and input sensitivity settings need to be fiddled with. But the game grows on ya, and has a Demo Mode possessing killer accuracy. There is no icon for the game app. I have included a sample icon (ripped from "Art Directors Toolkit" v3) that looks good on this game, tho I pinned the icon to the game Folder not app, so as to not modify the game app keeping archival integrity.

Tested it does work in Jaguar OS X 10.2 and higher.
