DuckSlinger is a tracker for the Nintendo DS. Its aim is to use the unique hardware of the DS to make an intuitive tool for quickly creating chiptune-style music.
It was submitted to the Wild Demo competition at Blockparty 2009 and in the 2nd place.
It has 5 sound modes and 7 ways to make the tone sound to adjust from.
There is also a play mode (with 2 original demo songs), if playing the wrong note, for 2 second the note will not be played.
Duckslinger uses song0.ctm - song8.ctm for its save slots.
Rename the sample songs to the appropriate name to load it in that slot.
To use the save/load feature you will need to DLDI patch the .nds file.

- Tested with R4DS and no$gba. Hopefully it should work unmodified on any card, but you need DLDI patching for loading/saving songs.
