Game History - Duke Nukem 2 - 1993
Duke Nukem II is a platform game and a sequel to Duke Nukem. While giving an
interview on TV, the famous muscular hero Duke Nukem is captured by the evil
Rigelatins, who intend to use his brain for conquering Earth. Duke easily
escapes his prison cell.
Now he has to make his way through four episodes, each one consisting of an
assortment of levels with varying graphic design. On his way, Duke has to
destroy lots of obstacles and enemies - both Rigelatin forces and apparent
local wildlife. Initially, Duke has just a weak laser rifle, but he can also
find a flamethrower (which allows him to shoot down to launch himself in the
air), a rocket launcher or a far more powerful laser cannon. These stronger
weapons, however, have limited ammo.
There are also lots of items to collect: health items such as soda cans or
atom power-ups, Duke Nukem merchandise which gives score, keys and access
cards that let him pass through locked door or electrical barriers. Duke can
also find a rapid fire power-up which lets him shoot faster, a cloaking device
which allows him to go through forcefields, and a globe which will give the
player a hint when brought to a special pedestal. A lot of items are hidden
in boxes of various colors which have to be opened by shooting. Beware, as
some boxes do not contain items, but rather a harmful bomb!
On some levels, Duke can find a small spaceship. He can enter it and fly
around the level, using the ship's powerful cannon to mow down everything in
his way. However, the ship won't fit everywhere, so Duke will have to get out
of it eventually.
