A lot of people associate the “Duke Nukem” brand with the breakout first-person shooter, but Apogee’s wisecracking anti-hero was originally a less well-rounded character… y’know… 2D. I spent a lot of time playing these games in my pre-teens in this sidescroller. It was a blast (literally) to play and is a great nostalgia bomb.
- Run-n-gun through 3 action-packed episodes in Duke Nukem, and 4 explosive episodes in Duke Nukem 2!
- Witness the makings of a true gaming legend!
- Over 30 levels of heavy-duty run-and-gun shoot-and-forget 2D platforming fun!
Every great hero has a humble beginning. Go back to the very roots of the King of Badassery, Duke Nukem. You’ve been called on a top secret mission to save the world from the brilliantly evil Dr. Proton and his Techbot army! Originally conceived as three seperate episodes, Duke Nukem will take you all the way through a demolished city, a secret moonbase, and, finally, the very future of Earth itself! Are you man enough to step into the butt-kicking boots of Duke Nukem?
Duke Nukem 2
After a triumphant return from the previous assignment, our main man Duke decides to write a book (“Why I’m So Great”) in his spare time and take some well-deserved time off. Our hero’s rest and book tour was not meant to last for too long, though. He got snatched by alien invaders right in the middle of a TV interview! The plan was as simple as it was devious: turn Duke into a zombie using the Encephalosucker and take over the world! Get out of the alien-infested jail and kick those slimy alien butts back to whence they came!
