The Man, The Myth, The Legend and here's where it all began
29 July 2002 | by (Cheltenham, England) – See all my reviews

If you can imagine Super Mario with blonde hair and a really big gun, then you have Duke Nukem 1. Without charm and grace this game, now widely available as shareware, is mindless slog of shooting the same baddies and jumping the same ramps for three long episodes. But this is where it all started and if ever start to feel nostalgic then boot up the 486 (anything over is truly wasted on this game) and cause some mini carnage.

For hardcore DukeMatchers only I'm afraid folks.
