Several years ago we learned that a port of the classic Duke Nukem 3D was coming to Android, courtesy of mobile games developer MachineWorks NorthWest. But that version of the game is no longer in the Play Store.
In January of 2015, news broke of another Duke Nukem Android port. To celebrate the 19th anniversary of the King, developer Voidpoint was faithfully re-creating the insanely fun adventures of Duke Nukem. Apparently the developer had acquired the rights to not only Duke Nukem 3D, but the expansions (Duke It Out in D.C., Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach, and Duke: Nuclear Winter), Duke Nukem 64, and the PlayStation’s Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown.

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. That's community power, baby.
The update is available in the Market now, go ahead and grab it for some ad-free ass kicking. Read More
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. The $0.99 pricetag will get you Episode 1, but if that's not enough action for you, episodes 2 and 3 are both available via in-app purchasing. Read More
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. We know it's coming very soon, but we don't have an exact date at this point. Read More
