Aliens have landed in futuristic Los Angeles and it's up to the Duke to bring the pain and show them the door. After the initial entries of side-scrolling platform games, Duke Nukem 3D introduced a first-person perspective to the series and turned the game in a full-fledged shooter with 2.5D graphics.

Duke's arsenal includes pistols, pipe bombs, laser trip mines, a shotgun, a chain gun and various rocket launchers, but also his mighty foot to kick enemies. The game sports a high level of interactivity. Many objects in the environment can be broken or interacted with, such as pool tables, arcade machines, glass, light switches and security cameras. As a mature game, the protagonist is also able to hand strippers a dollars to have them remove their top.

The character, voiced by Jon St. John, also regularly delivers commentary on the events through one liners. There are 28 levels, divided over three episodes, set in locations such as streets, a church, a space station, a Japanese villa, a football field and many modern environments. Enemies mainly include aliens, mutated humans and members of the police force that have been turned into Pig Cops. There are also multiplayer modes playable through early network protocols.

The Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D contains the three original episodes of the main game and the Plutonium Pak expansion, which adds a new episode, "The Birth".

This version of the game is built for 68k processors and came on a single CD bundled with the PowerPC-native version. It is the game not the full CD, ready to be extracted (with StuffIt 5.x) and played.

Architecture: 68k

68LC040 33Mhz ('040 with FPU recommended), 8MB RAM, Mac OS 7.0 through 9.x, 256-color monitor, 30MB free Hard Disk space

NOTE: You must install the 1.2 [k] patch, which is included, in order to play the game once unpacked, otherwise it will ask for the CD.

Yes, the music plays OK on Basilisk II - But you need to DL the full CD .iso from the other page for the Atomic Ed: Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition (DL #3 on that page).

The music files are in AIFF format (and some other I don't recognise) not midi. It's also best to have the CD .iso mounted on your host desktop or added to the list of mountable disks in the B2 GUI, as they are 400MB of data.

Also, the full CD from that page will install the 68k version of Duke, too. You just need to ignore the 1st warning about Duke requiring PPC Macs and go on to install, via the "Customize" button that comes after the 1st nags.

When you start up Duke, music might be turned off in the Duke options, so you need to check for that too.

I can't seem to get the music to play on Basilisk II, or any midi file for that matter. Any idea what I should do to get it working?

You need the CD image of the game, in order for the OS X version to recognize the Atomic Addition.

Is it possible to run the files of this game on the Mac OS X version of Duke Nukem 3D?
