Duke Nukem: Manhattan project is a false 3D platform game where the characters and environment are rendered in 3D, but with fixed paths through the levels that are usually flat, but sometimes round, like Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. As a platform game, it is the spiritual sequel to Duke Nukem II. This time around Duke can grab onto ledges and duck, and he can kill enemies by jumping on them or kicking them. The graphics are excellent, Duke makes his usual witty comments, and everything about the game oozes attitude. Duke gets a wide array of weapons, and the pig cops from Duke Nukem 3D are back for more punishment. There are 8 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.
Episode 1: Rooftop Rebellion
Episode 2: Chinatown Chiller
Episode 3: Metro Madness
Episode 4: Unholy Underworld
Episode 5: Fearsome Factory
Episode 6: Tanker Trouble
Episode 7: Deviant Drilling
Episode 8: "the final out-of-this-world episode"
