3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment have announced the classic action game Duke Nukem II will be getting a re-release on iOS devices. The game is planned for a release in April and will be sold for $1.99.

Developed originally by Apogee Productions, Duke Nukem II is an action platform that was released for DOS computers in 1993. It followed the 1991 release of Duke Nukem. Unlike the first-person shooter format of its groundbreaking followup Duke Nukem 3D, Duke Nukem II is a side-scrolling platform game similar in style to the first game released in 1991.

Players control the titular Duke Nukem after he is abducted from his home of Neo L.A. while giving an interview for an autobiography. The aliens, known as Rigelatins, intend to use his brain for a conquest of earth. Blasting their way across 32 levels, players take on an array of enemies to save the planet from invasion.

The mobile port looks to recreate the feel of the original, from the exciting side-scrolling action all the way down to the classic 256 color VGA graphics. The iOS version will take advantage of modern technology, utilizing full touch screen support. Players will also be able to save and load their games as well as be able to track their score through leaderboards. Brand new artwork and music will also be created exclusively for this version of the game.

“Before Duke Nukem 3D, before the sunglasses, before the one-liners, and before the strippers, many gamers never knew there was another incredible alien ass-kicking Duke game, a cutting-edge game for its time that still holds up 20 years later,” Steve Miller, the co-founder and CEO of 3D Realms, said.

Players who never experienced the original game will be able to for the first time when Duke Nukem II releases on iOS devices next month.
