Duke Nukem 3D

By MachineWorks Northwest

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.



V1.4 is here! Now supports "Drag to look" controls as well as dual stick!


With dozens of Game of the Year awards under his belt, Duke remains the King of Action. Larger than life action is what Duke is all about, mixed with humor and innovative explosive action in this 20+ hour game.

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!


Metacritic Player Rating: 9.4 of 10.

"It's the ultimate game for unleashing all your pent-up aggression. It is the most astonishing game we've laid our eyes on for ages! In fact, it makes pretty much every PC game we've ever seen - "Doom" included - like slightly dull. Honestly!" -- PC Gamer

"It's more inventive, and more entertaining, than "Doom." I know they've had long enough to get it right (but so have many others, who've tried and failed)." -- Computer and Video Games

"It's rare when a game comes along that really kicks your ass. With its free-flowing 3D action, over-the-top weapons, and ruthlessly attitudinal protagonist, Duke Nukem will have PC gamers worldwide rubbing their rumps with spine-tingling glee." -- Gamespot

"I couldn't stop laughing while playing this extremely enjoyable trip through what unfolds like a 1950's science fiction B-movie: Space Aliens Invade Earth for Women!...Duke Nukem has what most first-person shooters don't - character!" -- PC Gameworld

Great game, messed up controls

A great game to be free today through another free app called "Free App Report" which you should go get if you already haven't.
I forgot that I had already tried DN3D on my 3Gs and it does seem to have better looking graphics with my 4s but it's still the same old Duke Nukem with those horribly loose controls although they are seemingly customizable but I still haven't gotten them where I want them.

Anyway, It's Duke Nukem, need I say more? YES! I do need to say more because this fun new way to play it in the iPhone is very much hindered by its controls. Anyone trying to get into the theatre through the window in front will know what I mean for sure, but the loose control system becomes quite apparent right off the bat when the first cat is firing at you and you need to dodge and fire back. I was able to do that but had to fight the controls the whole time, especially the directional control on the lower left. If there is anything you guys can do to tighten that up I know there would be a lot of grateful gamers out here.

Anyway, when the controls get fixed I'll be back with that 5th star but until then I may need the room.

After all that, I will still be deleting it for the space, sorry. I still have yet to finish the PC version anyway.

Great on iPhone but...


Why haven't you updated the iPad version to have controls like this version?! The iPad version of the Game is MUCH clearer and sharper but with such antiquated controls it's like a generation leap backwards trying to play that version now!

Update both games to fix skyboxes please!!!!! The second I see any sky in this game (iOS versions only) it goes insane on me. Same thing for mirrors. The ipad version's mirrors go insane just like the skyboxes. And in the current update there are NO mirrors in the iphone versions! Fix this PLEASE!

Plus when I try to access the bonus levels the game crashes.

Update both games to fix the skyboxes. And update the iPad version to have the great controls this iphone version of the game has!

As for how this version of the iPhone game is, it's great! I think the controls feel awesome finally, I just wish they'd update the iPad version to have the same controls. This game plays GREAT on iPhone now, just please update both versions to fix these bugs!!!

FIx It And I'll PAY For It!!!!

If you fix the controls I will personally allow you to charge me money for this game. I own this game on my 360. And would like to own it on my ipod. I will delete the free version with crappy, clunky, generic, slow, unresponsive controls. And I will buy whatever updated version with good controls you make for any amount of money you fancy. Because right now it is utterly impossible to play and enjoy this game the way it is. So ill say it again. Take your free version of DN3D, and throw it away. Then make another version with updated controls. Put the music back in the game, and Dukes hilarious one liners that you decided weren't important to incorporate. Do this, and you'll make money from me. Do these things and you can charge me whatever amount of money you want and I will buy. Til then 3 stars and DELETE.
Sincerely ME.
