Obviously, the biggest change is the graphics. While DuckTales: Remastered is still a side-scroller, the world you travel through is in 3D, or to be more accurate, 2.5D. The backgrounds convey the gameís seven environments well, and the slight bit of parallax that occurs as you make your way across the level really helps to add some depth.
The characters also got an update as the 8-bit sprites have been replaced by smooth 2D pieces of art that seem to be lifted straight from the classic cartoon series. Everyone from Scrooge McDuck to the nephews, Launchpad, Webby and the various villains are rendered nicely in this Remastered edition.
Sound also got a rework for this version of the game. While the classic 8-bit tunes can still be turned on, the game has been rescored with several songs that like modernized versions of the showís various musical pieces. Plus, DuckTales: Remastered now has voicework from the surviving cast (plus a few substitutes), to help explain just why Scrooge is going all around the world to collect various bits of treasure. Besides the obvious answer, of course.
