Description (by Apogee Software):
Duke Nukem II is everything you'd want from an action game. An incredibly sophisticated game engine gives this high-action game the power needed to 'nuke' your computer! Duke blasts his way through your screen with enough firepower to wake your neighbors.
The original Duke Nukem, released June 1991, soared to the top of the Shareware Top 10 list, where's it's been camped for 22 straight months--no other shareware program (of any type) has been this enduring and popular. But the reason for Duke's extraordinary success is simple: It delivers the action players love, with state-of-the-art animation and graphics. The new Duke Nukem II once again sets the new standard for arcade/action games.
In this latest saga, Duke Nukem, while being interviewed on TV about his best selling book, "Why I'm So Great", is suddenly abducted by aliens. Duke's alien captor explains that Duke's brain will be drained of all his knowledge, which will be used to formulate a master plan to seize control of Earth. Duke has two choices: He can be turned into a zombie by the EncephaloSucker, or 'kick-butt' like there's no tomorrow!
You guessed it! Our hero is ready for action. Duke must escape his alien prison cell, then battle to end the hideous plans of the Rigelatins.
