Duke Nukem II Announced

We’ve just gotten wind that Duke Nukem II is heading to the App Store soon. The game is a side-scrolling shoot-’em-up that was originally released for PC 20 years ago. It was followed-up, of course, by the even-more-classic Duke Nukem 3D, but Duke Nukem II helped establish the no-nonsense hero. We don’t have an exact release date yet, but the game will cost $1.99 when it comes out. Watch the trailer below.

Duke Nukem II is being ported over by Interceptor Games, who also brought us Rise of the Triad a couple of years ago. While we weren’t crazy about that game (to say the least), the 2D side-scrolling Duke Nukem II might hold up better over time, and control better on the touchscreen.

While you wait, if you haven’t already played Duke Nukem 3D on iOS, you can read our review and download it here for free.
