As mentioned in other articles here at AppleTell, the resurgence of the old 16 bit games of the early ’90s is a welcome enough sight. It’s fun to be able to play some of the old games on a new, portable platform. I would appreciate it more if the developers would take advantage of the improved hardware and bring the graphics and the sounds up to date, but Duke Nukem 2 for iPhone is true to the original and not a bad game. The controls were a bit touchy and it seemed like the sound wasn’t keeping up at points, but it is still Duke—still fun.

Overall-Duke Nukem 2 is a very worthy successor to the first game. With the changes and improvements, Duke Nukem 2 is a shining example of making a good game better.

Gute Fortsetzung eines hübschen Ballerspielchens.

Personally, I'd love to see a remade Duke Nukem '1' (which was made in two parts) to go along with this. I skipped that one as well and a compilation of all three of Duke's original adventures would be absolutely stellar. Here's to hoping - in the meantime though, if you're looking for a little challenging action in the old school style, Duke Nukem II should hit the spot nicely.

Clunky controls and graphical issues keep this game from reaching it’s full potential. My advice: Good Old Games -among others- offers the original PC and Mac version with support for modern computers. Splurge on that one.

De få nymodigheter som finns är bland annat ett väldigt generöst sparsystem, men i övrigt är det i princip Duke Nukem II som vi minns att det var. I all sin stela, färgglada prakt. Om det är originalet du vill spela, är det säkerligen värt ett par kronor. Men vill du ha lite lättstyrd, hyfsat snygg och underhållande 2D-action finns det flera fräschare alternativ som är bättre än Duke Nukem II.
