    Duke Nukem is back! New York City is being overrun by a mutant menace and it’s time to de-worm the Big Apple. This explosive 3D action game features Duke Nukem defending the city that never sleeps, and its babes, from the evil Mech Morphix across 24 levels from Chinatown to Space. A super-sized collection of weapons, enemies and bosses await. As Duke would say, “Babes, Bullets, Bombs. I love this job!”

    TOTAL MUTANT MAYHEM!

    Der "King of Action" kehrt mit einem neuen Abenteuer zurück! Dieses Mal hat der Duke ein Auge auf New York City. In acht verschiedenen Welten macht Duke Jagd auf den machthungrigen Mech Morphix und bahnt sich seinen Weg über die Dächer von Wolkenkratzern und durch finstere U-Bahn-stationen. Dabei bekommt er es mit einer Horde blutrünstiger Mutanten zu tun - und mit G.L.O.P.P. dem grünen Schleim, der nichts als Chaos verursacht.

    Doch radioaktiver Schleim ist nur eins der zahlreichen Probleme, mit denen Duke fertig werden muss. Mehr als 25 verschiedene und äußerst gefährliche Mutanten würden ihn am liebsten sofort fressen. Ob mit Uzis wedelnde Aligatoren oder grunzende PigCops - Duke ist in der Stadt, um die Mutanten auszurotten und Babes zu retten! Seine Pipebombs, sein Maschinengewehr, sein Raketenwerfer und seine Pulse Cannon werden den Big Apple sicherlich nicht verschöner aber was bleibt unserem Helden denn anderes übrig?

    "ALIENS METZLEN, COLLE SPRÜCHE UND SEXY BABES BEFREIEN - DAS MACHT SPAß!"

    In schwindelerregender Höhe hat Duke nur ein Ziel vor Augen...die Vernichtung der Mutanten.
    Auf dem Bauch durch Abwasserrohre oder an Wokenkratzern baumelnd - den Duke kann nichts aufhalten.
    Schnapp dir ein Jet Pack und bekämpfe deine Feine in schwindelerregender Höhe.
    Gnadenlose Kämpfe an jeder Straßenecke. Mit 25 neuen und verschiedenen Feinden.
    Rette die Babes aus den schmutzigen Händen von Mech Morphix und seinen G.L.O.P.P.-Bomben.

    3D game introduces wise-cracking Duke Nukem to a new generation of PC gamers



    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - May 17, 2002- Global video games publisher ARUSH Entertainment today announced Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project (DNMP) for the PC is shipping to North American retailers and will be on the shelves early next week at a MSRP of $24.99.

    DNMP is a PC platformer that hearkens back to the classic days of gaming, but with the visuals and polish of today's games, and is set in a fully 3D environment. Starring one of the most recognizable video game characters in history, Duke Nukem, DNMP is edgy, fast action at its best. The game doesn't pull any punches, and stays true to Duke Nukem's trademarked attitude throughout eight huge NY themed areas as he rescues babes and blows away mutants.

    "Duke is immensely appealing-he's a shoot first, ask-questions-never kind of guy," said ARUSH Entertainment president and CEO Jim Perkins. "He's a confident American hero, and babes fall at his feet wherever he goes. He's the coolest guy I've ever had the pleasure of working with."

    DNMP was developed by Sunstorm Interactive, which has created add-on packs in the past for Duke Nukem 3D. 3D Realms, the creators of the Duke Nukem franchise, produced the game.

    The Official DNMP Web site, www.DukeNukemMP.com, has screenshots, a 20 MB movie that shows gameplay and Duke spouting off his famous one-liners, wallpapers and other Duke goodies.
