Duke Nukem 3D is a 1998 Brazil-exclusive Sega Mega Drive game by Tec Toy based on the popular PC game of the same name. The earlier Sega Saturn version was a port of the PC game; Tec Toy's version contains graphics and sound effects from the PC version, but has substantially different gameplay mechanics, levels, and a simplified game engine.

It is widely speculated to be an extensive hack of Zero Tolerance, but this remains unconfirmed. The legal status of the remake is disputed; 3D Realms claims that it is not legal while Tec Toy claims that they obtained a license from publisher GT Interactive (now defunct).

The game solely contains the second of the original games three episodes. This episode is called Lunar Apocalypse but the levels are redesigned to better suit the new game engine.

In 2015, retro game publisher Piko Interactive re-released the game in the US.[1]

Gameplay

Up moves forward, Down backwards, Left/Right rotates. C fires; weapons switch automatically when the currently equipped weapon runs out of ammo. A opens doors.

History

Development

According to the Heriberto Martinez the game engine utilizes "Raycast" techniques for 3D rendering. He also said there was a "Plan B" of creating a engine similar to Phantasy Star's labyrinth, since ray casting could be possibly too heavy for the Mega Drive and/or demand too much code[2].

Development took around 14 months[2].
