Apogee's 'Duke Nukem II' Blasting Onto Apple iOS Devices

apogees-duke-nukem-ii-blasting-onto-apple-ios-devicesBefore Duke Nukem was best known for kicking ass and chewing bubble gum, his 2D shareware escapades were to be found on countless PCs all around the world. With the second game in the series - Duke Nukem II - due to celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, Interceptor Entertainment has developed an iOS port of Apogee's gutsy classic.

While fantastic news for those hoping to keep a helping of retro PC gaming in their pocket, there has been no release date set for this touchscreen port. The actual 20th anniversary of Duke Nukem II won't arrive until the 3rd December, so we're very much hoping that Interceptor Entertainment, the team also behind the Rise of the Triad reboot, will unleash this platformer much earlier to us all.

Duke Nukem II iOS Press Release & Trailer

3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment announce Duke Nukem II for iOS, bringing the classic action game to mobile devices. Slam your thumbs into the screen as you guide Duke across 32 action-packed levels, blasting the living crap out of every alien that dares to get in your thumb-smashing way. The game is set for release in April for the out-of-this-world price of $1.99.

In 1993 Apogee released Duke Nukem II. Its explosive action made it an instant side-scrolling classic. 20 years later, Interceptor Entertainment and 3DRealms have teamed up to bring Duke Nukem II back. Duke Nukem II for iOS lets you experience this 90's classic all over again on the most popular gaming platform in the world.

"It's an amazing experience to be able to work on such a beloved franchise," said Frederik Schreiber, CEO and game director at Interceptor Entertainment. "As kids, we were all big fans of Duke Nukem II, and working with Scott Miller and 3D Realms to bring this classic back to life on new platforms was a dream come true. Scott is a great partner, and I'm looking forward to working together on more exciting titles in the future!"

"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," said Scott Miller, CEO and co-founder of 3D Realms."

And Interceptor, the uber-talented up-and-coming studio behind the amazing Rise of the Triad reboot, has ported Duke Nukem II to the iPad and iPhone. I've loved working with Frederik Schreiber and the entire team. These guys know and love Duke like they're family. And the love shows in this kick-ass release."
