Count Duckula 2 is a platform game in which the player advances Duckula from screen to screen shooting soft toys with a ketchup gun.
Critically, the game consistently achieved some of the lowest review scores of the 8-bit era and is considered one of the worst games published for these platforms. Sinclair User reviewed the game, awarding it 64%, concluding: "If you like silent, slow, basic, dated, unresponsive, annoying games, get it!". The Your Sinclair review was more scathing, awarding 9%: "The whole thing seems to play quite happily by itself, with the player being a sort of novelty bonus."
The Amstrad CPC version fared no better, with Amstrad Action awarding the game a mere 3%.
In the final issue of Your Sinclair, Count Duckula 2 was voted the Number One Worst Speccy Game Of All Time by the magazine's readers.
