Qwak HD, has been almost 25 years in the making! Development began back in 1988, on the BBC micro, and our favorite ducky hero also made an appearance on the Amiga, in 1993 (published by Team17). Qwak has been refined and improved to the Nth degree, and this latest version for iPad, promises to be one of the most intensely playable, ducky, platforming experiences you can have!

In Qwak HD, collect keys, fruit, diamonds, and all manner of goodies then quickly escape each level, before it starts raining the black spikes of deadly death from above! Never fear though, a variety of potions will power-up your duck and help you survive the onslaught...
