Howard the Duck, also known as Howard the Duck: Adventure on Volcano Island, is an action video game released in 1986 by Activision for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Apple II. The game is a tie-in to the film Howard the Duck that came out in the same year.

The game involves players controlling Howard the Duck to save his best friends, Phil and Beverly. After being parachuted to Volcano Island, Howard needs to find a backpack to proceed with the search. The game consists then of four levels, in the last of which Howard, armed with a Neutron gun, will finally face Overlord.
