It'll be soon be time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, so be sure to stock up on bubble gum as for whatever reason Duke always seems to be out- In honor of Duke Nukem II's 20th anniversary the game will be headed to iOS. It's crazy to think that the game was originally released that long ago, but, here we are. If you're unfamiliar with the title, before Duke went 3D with Duke Nukem 3D [$1.99] it was actually a really fun sidescroller. Take a look at the trailer:

Duke Nukem 3D leaves a lot to be desired on iOS devices, largely because of weird on-screen controls which really never seem to work that well for first person shooters. Sidescrollers, on the other hand, seem to work quite well with virtual controls. The actual release date is TBA, but with the 20th anniversary coming soon, we're thinking the game will follow closely. The price has been announced, and you'll be able to enjoy all 32 original Duke II levels for $1.99.

    Wish it was Dangerous Dave instead.

    • Dams

      You meant Rick Dangerous 🙂

      • dearapple

        Dangerous Dave II in fact. The dude with a red cap in a haunted mansion armed with a shotgun.

    Sweet! I remember firing this game up from a shareware CD ("hundreds of games!" on our speedy 8x cd drive

  • bigrand1

    Ha! A fun blast from the past arriving here on the IOS finally! I remember fondly the great humor that game had.

    Will they have learned how not to port a game to iOS? The first DN was horrible.

    • riChchestMat

      You mean the 3rd. DN3D was the 3rd game in the series. Duke Nukem 1 isn't officially on iOS (it's on some emulators). I prefer DN1 to DN2 anyway.

    Come get some! I hope this game is going to be free! It's a 20 years old game! If they port Manhattan project i'll surely buy it! It's a shame for 3drealms to release this title

  • BMOC

    I'd like to know why they squashed the ipad version into a 16:9 aspect ratio when they could have left it as 4:3 and had it look like the original. What the hell?
