Duke Nukem II  1993

The sequel to the popular original Duke Nukem game, with vastly superior graphics, sound and gameplay. Duke has been captured by aliens and needs to frag his way through alien worlds. This time Duke can fire up and down, and can also scroll the screen up and down. The intro features beautiful 256 color VGA graphics, but the game reverts to 16 color graphics once the game starts. Still, the graphics are so good that it's hard to believe that you're only seeing 16 colors. There are 4 episodes in this game, creatively named Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, and Episode 4, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.
