The arrival of Duke Nukem 3D in the Market yesterday caused quite a stir -- not due to the excitement of the retro first-person-shooter finally making its way to Android, though, but instead because of the developer's decision to include ads in a paid app without notifying users of their existence before they purchased.

It looks like MachineWorks, the development team behind the port, listened to user cries (and a whole slew of negative Market comments/bad ratings), as they just pushed an update to the app that removes all ads.

Update: Looks like MachineWorks listened -- Duke Nukem 3D is now ad-free.

Earlier today, a somewhat anticipated game went live in the Android Market - Duke Nukem 3D. We covered the release and the news that it was on the way. But reviews of the app on the Market are painting a picture of a less than satisfied customer base, because of a couple key pieces of information that Machineworks Northwest left out of the app description.

For the past two weeks, we've been chomping at the bit for some good, old fashioned 1991-style ass-kicking-action. The kind of retro goodness that takes you back to the days of old while simultaneously filling your blood-lust as you saving the Earth's women from being alien-abducted for purposes of breeding. Yeah, I'm talking about none other than Duke Nukem 3D.

The official port of DN3D landed in the Market earlier today, ready to rock your world on all "newer multi-touch devices." It's optimized for phones and tablets, boasts intuitive touch controls, and installs to SD by default.

OK, we don't have much that we can show you yet, but I think the title sends the message. Ass kicking. Bubble gum chewing. Balls of steel. That's right kids, Duke Nukem is headed to Android in all his state-of-the-art-in-1991 3D glory. Don't believe us? We have visual proof (and a press release!):

Damn, you're ugly. Probably because you're from an iOS screenshot.

Of course, this port has been out for some time on iOS, but the developer behind it (MachineWorks Northwest) has been hard at work to get the title on Android.
