In level 20 ("Stone Rain"), the last level of the game, just as you enter the grated area towards Zilla's lair, you can see a nuclear missile under the grates. Push on the wall the the left side and it will open up and you can reach the nuclear missile. You can also run to the right and it will lead into a huge area under the volcano that has lots of items and the dead Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. See more »

Good fun.
8 October 2012 | by (Deadwood) – See all my reviews

From 3D realms, meet the new contender - Lo Wang. After the success of Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior, in my opinion really rocked the boat. Yes, it reminds you on Duke Nukem so much, but try not to pay attention, only the engine is the same and the idea that Lo Wang is somewhat also a macho alpha male like Duke, the only difference is that Duke got chicks, but Lo Wang does not. Lo Wang is a former ninja and a bodyguard to a powerful business man Zilla. After Wang leave Zilla's corporation, he sends his armies of darkness to kill such a mighty warrior as Wang. As you play, you get multiple weapons, and other helpful things, also ability to operate vehicles. Lo Wang has one liners, just like Duke, and they are also based on some dry humor and manly talk. Wang is voiced by John William Galt who did an excellent job. Your enemies are also pretty cool, graphics are the same like Duke Nukem's, good for that time, gameplay is highly entertaining. If you haven't tried Shadow Warrior, I recommend you do so.
