I'll give some tips when I get my computer replaced. Too much for typing for a phone post.

@Fr0st:

Got my computer replaced, so, finally, here's what I think about Deadly Duck.

The main concept is simple.  The shooting zones are the left
 1/3 and the right 1/3 third of the screen.  When the barrier moves out of the way, shoot.  The movement of the baddies is so random, you just have to put the shot up to where they might run into it.

If you accidently shoot the barrier, keep movving.  Even if you are directly under the bombs that come out, you can survive if you're moving.

Try to make sure not to get trapped between two yellow bricks.   That makes you a sitting duck, so to speak.'

Yoiu can shoot the yellow bricks.  If it doesn't start to fall directly over head, don't chase it.  Chasing is another dead duck scenario.

Patience is your friend.'  Survival is it's cousin.  .
