Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project1.01 Description:
Whenever the world is in over its head and needs a hero to solve its trouble, Duke is there to take on the task, as smug and confident as ever. This time, New York is attacked by a horde of mutants, as well as a radioactive green slime called GLOPP, which is in fact the source of all the mutations going on around town. Thus, by avoiding the slime and killing the bad guys, Duke fights his way through the city and finds the one responsible. Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is a classic platformer that takes you through the testosterone-fueled adventures of the mighty Duke, who is once again on call for saving the planet from evil. Naturally, the levels are filled with enemies that attack you on sight, as well as various traps that must be avoided by being aware of your surroundings. Although platformers are linear by nature, you can explore some additional chambers as you make your way through the stages, as well as make your way back sometimes, after you find a specific key or activate some kind of mechanism. The basic mechanics have remained unchanged, since Duke is able to jump, shoot and duck, as well as perform various special actions from time to time. The boot kick is present as well, being one of the most recognizable trademarks of the series. You do, however, need to make use of the available weapons if you want to have a chance against the horde. These include a pistol, shotgun, rocket launcher and, obviously, pipe bombs, all of which can be employed in different scenarios.
