DUKE NUKEM 3D IS HERE! ONE DAY SPECIAL LAUNCH SALE! THE ORIGINAL KING OF ACTION RETURNS! With dozens of Game of the Year awards under his belt, Duke remains the King of Action. Larger than life action is what Duke is all about, mixed with humor and innovative explosive action in this 20+ hour game. Los Angeles. Under attack by aliens intent on stealing our chicks for breeding. Duke Nukem springs into action dealing damage like only he can, making his "insightful" comments along the way. If you've never played a Duke game, this is your chance to see why he's been a fan favorite since 1991, with over 18 original Duke Nukem games since that time. Duke Nukem is not the typical faceless hero -- he's an in-your-face hero who has a personality that doesn't quit. Yes, it's a B-movie plot, but that's what makes it fun! A NEW WAY TO KILL This high-powered iPhone 3D engine supports TapShoot, a unique way to play first-person shooters on the iPhone and iTouch, taking full advantage of the unique touch screen interface to easily and quickly aim and shoot enemies, without the frustration of trying to line up your weapon perfectly. Once you've experienced TapShoot, you'll wish all FPS games on the iPhone had this breakthrough feature. CUSTOMIZED CONTROLS Yes, we have the thumb-stick style controller, but we've also pioneered another way to guide Duke through levels, using slider-style controls. Practically everyone who's playtested the game thinks this new method is superior. And this along with the TapShoot feature makes Duke Nukem 3D a blast to play on the iPhone. THE PRESS HAS ITS SAY! Metacritic Player Rating: 9.4 of 10. "It's the ultimate game for unleashing all your pent-up aggression. It is the most astonishing game we've laid our eyes on for ages! In fact, it makes pretty much every PC game we've ever seen - "Doom" included - like slightly dull. Honestly!" -- PC Gamer "It's more inventive, and more entertaining, than "Doom." I know they've had long enough to get it right (but so have many others, who've tried and failed)." -- Computer and Video Games "It's rare when a game comes along that really kicks your a*s. With its free-flowing 3D action, over-the-top weapons, and ruthlessly attitudinal protagonist, Duke Nukem will have PC gamers worldwide rubbing their rumps with spine-tingling glee." -- Gamespot "I couldn't stop laughing while playing this extremely enjoyable trip through what unfolds like a 1950's science fiction B-movie: Space Aliens Invade Earth for Women!...Duke Nukem has what most first-person shooters don't - character!" -- PC Gameworld

Controls are a bit hard to get used to at first but the production values are solid and sprites have been retouched... those of you who played the original need to grab this and for those who like the FPS genre, this is the chance to play a true classic (and have it for gaming on the go). Can't recommend this enough to anyone. Edited by Gold Coaster

Apparently the controls work really well despite being unorthodox. I've been wanting to play the original for ages but haven't been able to find the time. And I'm all outta gum.

There's a lot of innovation for the iDevices though. The Flight Control genre for one. Shame there are shoddy ripoffs but I recommend the original and Harbor Master. Oh and try Wolfenstein RPG, it has a cool aesthetic, RPG stylings (no really! Who'da thought from the title? :P), and is real-time until combat. And 'The Quest' is fantastic. Agree rehashes are a bit overdone on the platform but when you have the ability to take some decent adaptions with you in your pocket, I'm glad of that. Car Jack Streets is quite the good clone of the 2D GTA games and Gangstar looks to be a brilliant mini *3D* GTA clone.
