1993's Duke Nukem II coming to iOS next month
Friday, March 15, 2013 @ 2:07am

Current Max Payne and Duke Nukem publisher 3D Realms and Intercepter Entertainment will bring the classic 1993 side-scrolling platformer Duke Nukem II to iOS in April. The game will include 32 levels of carnage from the original game, but with new music, touchscreen support, replays and integrated leaderboards. The port preserves the original's 256-color palette and "future" game setting of 1998. The wisecracking hero can use four weapon types, and fights aliens to save the Earth from invasion.



The game was originally released in late 1993 for DOS, but was successfully ported onto the Color Gameboy later that decade, though the latter edition had substantial differences. It arrived two years after the original Duke Nukem, and is set a year after the original story, with Nukem having to escape a kidnapping by the evil Rigelatins, foiling their plan for enslaving the Earth and saving the day. 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of Duke Nukem II's release, and the developers have released a teaser trailer to promote the game. When released, it is expected to sell for $2 and will be available on all current iOS platforms. No Android or Windows Phone version has yet been announced.
