The classic game Duke Nukem 3D is now available on the PlayBook. This was a great game in it’s time, but how does it compare now, and how well does it play on the PlayBook?
I have only put in around 30 minutes of game time, but I’m a bit disappointed on the controls and find the game somewhat frustrating trying to line up my shots. Even changing the sensitivity of the controls didn’t seem to help that much. It seems a bit ‘jaggety’ when moving around. However a great feature is you can move the controls anywhere you like on the screen.
Also, keep in mind this is a game ported to the PlayBook from 1996! So keep your expectations of the graphics inline with that.
Los Angeles. Under attack by aliens intent on stealing our chicks for breeding. Duke Nukem springs into action dealing damage like only he can, making his “insightful” comments along the way. If you’ve never played a Duke game, this is your chance to see why he’s been a fan favorite since 1991, with over 18 original Duke Nukem games since that time. Duke Nukem is not the typical faceless hero — he’s an in-your-face hero who has a personality that doesn’t quit. Yes, it’s a B-movie plot, but that’s what makes it fun!
