Pro tip: Shooting the Duck Hunt dog

So, we've all been playing Duck Hunt, missed the quota of Ducks, and had the Dog laugh at us.

But if you're playing the Arcade version (a.k.a. Vs. Duck Hunt), you get a special Bonus Round every once in a while where the Dog leaps out of the grass.

Which is totally your opportunity, so let fly.

He'll complain a little bit, but, hey, some folks might say that he had it coming.

Pro tip: Adding a second player to Duck Hunt

The NES Duck Hunt is a staple of the system. It and Super Mario Bros. was bundled with a ton of the systems, mostly to show off the Zapper.

There's not much to it, either, dog jumps into field, flushes out ducks, and you have to shoot them down.

But! According to manual (which you probably won't have access to at this point in the game's life), a second player can join in the fun.

Just plug in a controller along with the Zapper, and a second player can control the directions that the Ducks fly.

And unlike some other games, this actually works.
