Duke Nukem then! Older than you think, but still kicking alien arse, perhaps even on your Netbook. NBG user Jeffrey Piatt offers us a littel retrospective on Nukem’s genesis. There`s more of ‘em than you think….
Duke Nukem I
The first game in the series and possibility the lest played. an EGA title so duke has platinum blond hair and a bad spray tan due to the limits of the pallet. but enough about the history. While commander Keen was modeled after Nintendo Duke was modeled on Sega platform titles. the game allows you to destroy almost everything on a level for points. Your enemy is Doctor Proton and is techbots and like the later DN3D title some of the Techbots are based on other pop culture robots including one pink bunny.
Duke Nukem II
The game that leads in to Duke 3D. duke gets kidnapped by an alien race so they can use his brain to take over earth. gameplay is close to DN1 but the game adds new features such as upgradeable weapons and a radar screen. the game uses the same engine as Cosmo but the graphics are VGA instead of the older EGA graphics used on the early apogee titles.
Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition
The Game that broke all of the rules. This is the Duke Nukem that made the press basic plot is while duke was fighting his way through the events of DN2 earth was invaded by a another evil force that is now after our women. expect Strippers and large explosions
