Duke's back, baby! Duke Nukem II iOS revealed


6:45 PM on 03.15.2013



3D Realms is back, and that can only mean one thing -- Duke Nukem. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Duke Nukem II, 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment have announced a upgraded re-release of the '90s game for iOS devices.

"Before Duke Nukem 3D, before the sunglasses, before the one-liners, and before the strippers - many gamers never knew there was another incredible alien ass-kicking Duke game, a cutting-edge game for its time that still holds up 20 years later," Scott Miller, CEO and co-founder of 3D Realms states.

Check out the tounge-in-cheek trailer telling us about some of the game's key features, such as "smooth side-scrolling action," "insane VGA graphics," and "256 eye-popping colors." Throw in 32 levels into the mix and you can this strong dose of testosterone-pumping nostaglia for a cool $1.99. It looks like it could be fun, but will a retro 2D, non-line dropping Duke be enough to erase the memory of, you know, that other game, and get fans playing Duke Nukem again?

For 3D Realms' sake, let's hope so.

Hot Hot Heat: Heists are finally coming to GTA Online soon

Rockstar's been notably tardy on its delivery of the much-anticipated heists to Grand Theft Auto Online. In fact, the delay was so great that most players wrote the feature off as a promise that would go unfulfilled. That's n...more
