Fun Fact: The music for the “Moon” level of Duck Tales is considered one of the most iconic pieces of video game music from the 8-bit era.

Duck Tales was an animated series that premiered in the late 1980's featuring Donald Duck's nephews Huey, Dewie and Louie and Donald's rich Uncle Scrooge McDuck. The success of this title is what paved the way for Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers a year later.

It's arguable that Duck Tales is still so fondly remembered largely on account of its soundtrack, but the game was an extremely solid platformer with attention to detail across the board.
