The Duke Nukem gaming series will be fondly remembered by millions of older gamers as a side scrolling shooter type game with all the carnage and shooting you could possible wish for.

In 1993 Apogee released Duke Nukem II.

Duke Nukem II for iOS lets you experience this 90′s classic all over again on the most popular gaming platform in the world!

The iOS game will be based around how it looked and played back in 1993 with smooth side scrolling action, VGA graphics, 256 eye popping colors, kick ass weapons, 32 action packed levels, full touchscreen support, new artwork and music.

If you are already excited by this upcoming release, take a look at the reveal trailer below; if you remember and loved the original then you are not going to be disappointed with this one. Duke Nukem II will be arriving in the App Store next month and will cost $1.99.

Duke Nukem II arriving on iPhone and iPad in April


While I think it is awesome that they recreated the 90s classic and brought it back in its peak form for iOS; I'm rather disappointed they didn't upgrade their graphics. Whether it was for cost reasons of authenticity, I wish it would have been updated. It could have been an amazing game. With so many developers being yelled at if they don't have 'retina display,' I don't see this being a huge hit.


If you're bringing back a classic you really need to leave the graphics alone, in their original form. If you're doing a reboot then they should, or might be, updated. IMO.

With respect, I disagree. Playing a "classic" should keep true to the original.
As an alternative, I'd suggest that they put out the original as a free game and then offer an upgraded version for pay. Would I get both? Yes.
I'd play the classic for nostalgia sake for a bit and then go to the refreshed version for complete gameplay.

Somehow Duke Nukem remains one of my personal faves of all time!! Too bad Duke Nukem Forever (X360) didn't appeal too much over the originals...
Looking forward to trying this out on my phone next month. Nostalgic already ;)

I wonder why they didn't get the 'real' voice of Duke Nukem - Jon St John? He did a great job on our iOS game (Team Awesome) and he was fantastic to work with.

Er...mah.....gherd!!!!! Will get, still waiting on BladePad's release. Last I heard from them it was a spring release they were looking at. Duke Nukem is amazing!

First Karateka and now this? All I need now is Missle Command and my childhood is back! Well, that and all the Mario titles. C'mon Nintendo, do the right thing.

Well at least they had fun with the ad. "256 eye popping colours, more than 3 weapons..." Ah my youth.

Blast from the past! I used to love this game, wow! Nintendo need to open up their vault to Apple for all of the old school titles! There could be millions to be had! Duckhunt, Mario, Zelda to name a few. But until that days comes this will most defiantly hold me over. Check this game out for real people. A review iMore!
