Marvin the Martian has developed an ultimate weapon that will finally allow him to destroy Earth and take control of the universe. A snag in its demonstration keeps Marvin from completing his devious deed. The weapon is out of its atom fuel, so he sends his minions (all of which are characters from the Looney Tunes universe) to gather some.
The player controls Duck Dodgers, exploring five planets to save the Earth. They must collect energy atoms to unlock the boss areas, defeat the bosses, and unlock the next planet. Dodgers' special attack is based on his catch-phrase "suffering succotash." When the A button is pressed Daffy will enter rage mode until his Succotash Meter depletes.
