Duck Life 4 is the fourth installment of the DuckLife series. This game is about training multiple ducks to compete in tournaments to beat the Fire Duck.
- Unlike other installments, this one has 2 versions, one being one that is available on Mobile devices and the other being, presumably, the original, wich is superior to the version available on Mobile devices.
- You can now train up to 6 different ducks
- There are 5 different sessions for a certain type of training in each area that you can unlock by beating a tournament from the last area
- You can now train Jumping in City.
- You can buy Haircuts, Costumes, and New Ducks in the shop.
- In the final race, your duck needs help to beat the Fire Duck, so you use the arrow keys to control your duck.
- You can now race with challengers outside of the tournaments.
- The tournaments are now 3 races without breaks, so you can choose different ducks to race.
- You now need a tournament invite from one of the challengers in each area
First, you go to the Egg Pick stage. Here, you pick the egg you want. After, picking an egg, a duck hatches from it. The color of the duck depends on what type of egg you purchased. Next, you test your duck if it can reach the finish line. However, your duck collapses so you need to give it seed which gives the duck energy. After your duck eats the seed, the duck can now reach the finish line. Because the duck wasn't very fast, you can eventually train as you progress. Third, you'll meet Joe the running trainer. You can talk to him to train. He also shows a duck who wants to race with you. You can click on the "!" over its head. He also shows the shop where you buy eggs, haircuts, and hats. The last thing he shows is the windmill which is a tournament. Tournaments are sets of 3 races in a row, without breaks. You can choose a different duck in each race. If you win a tournament, you unlock a new area on the map. And that's about it. Use the mouse to look around the area. You will then click anything you want. There are 6 Areas to unlock.
Just click on the training duck, Joe to train. The game has three stages: Testing speed, endurance, and reactions. You then click either Start Training or Back. If you click Start Training, you will go to the first stage: Speed. (Before you go to the stage, you will need to choose your duck - if you buy a new one at the Shop.)
Speed instructions need to move left and right in order to go to the hole and jump to the bottom and stay on the screen as long as you can. If you move out of the screen, your training is over.
Endurance instructions are to move left and right. At the sky on the screen, there will be noticed which is, either warning or $ signs. Go below the $ sign and avoid the warning as long as you can. If you get hit by an obstacle, your training is over.
Reaction instructions are to use 1, 2, 3 or 4 keys. You will jump to a rock when you see numbers on the rock. Now according to the number, press the number on your keyboard and you will jump. When you lose, your training will be over.

- Sometimes, the duck cannot be named, instead the game itself chooses/you have to click the random name to see which name you want and you will need to continue rather than naming it.
- If you click on a challenger in the challenge screen, you'll go to the running trainer.
- If you drag a duck all the way to the left in Grassland near the energy seeds, you can get infinite energy seeds.
- On some sites, when racing with the Grey Duck in the Glacier, she'll stop and your duck will win, no matter where you were in the race.
- If you play the Arcade machine you won from the Fire Duck, the game stops working and will only stay on the arcade game selection screen. This will continue even upon opening the game and there will be no way to fix this. Thus, this will lead you to have to erase your data/restart or just don't play.
- If you have the Big Shiny Cone Hat in speed glacier training, you can climb the ladders above you.
- If you carry on training in some sites you will level up further than level 150.
- In the second mini-game in the swamp area, if you swim for a while and then let the duck fall onto the very beginning of the hill, it will (for a while) become immune to the walls.
