Game Review

Duke Nukem II is the second game in the Duke Nukem franchise and was developed and published by Apogee Software for DOS in 1993. It has since been ported to multiple other platforms.

Duke Nukem II was much larger than the original game and was made using VGA 256-color graphics, though only 16 colors were seen at any given time. Duke Nukem II utilizes the same gameplay that made the first one so much fun, but adds new elements into the mix.

After saving the world from a mad scientist, the titular Duke is in the middle of shamelessly promoting himself when he’s kidnapped by aliens. They plan to imprison him so they can conquer the Earth, but they just messed with the wrong tough guy. Using multiple weapons; commandeering enemy vehicles; and gathering power-ups, Duke can cause as much death and destruction as his heart desires. There are also a number of items to be collected or shot for points and health. Duke can jump on platforms, climb ladders, float on air and all the usual stuff you would expect, all while kicking alien ass. In famous Apogee design Duke’s a little cuter than his later incarnations, but he’s no less a hero. Duke Nukem fans rejoice, he’s back!
