The year is 1997. Doctor Proton and his army of Techbots have taken control of Earth's largest city. Once a respected genius and scientist, Dr. Proton (he changed his name from Blunderwitz early in his career) decided he could rule Earth with a new world order.
After a terrible radiation accident that altered his brain, Dr. Proton took to the underworld and developed an army of advanced robots -- called Techbots. The Techbots are extremely dangerous, and guard Dr. Proton's secret hideout. Every attempt by the military to overcome Dr. Proton ended in disaster. It seems Dr. Proton's plan to rule Earth is well underway...
Self-proclaimed hero Duke Nukum is Earth's final chance. Hired by the CIA, Duke has orders to stop Dr. Proton and rid the world of this latest madman. Armed only with his pistol and his can-do attitude, Duke is the one person who might stand a chance of success.
EPISODE ONE: SHRAPNEL CITY
Your mission as Duke Nukum: A plane will fly over Dr. Proton's sieged city and drop Duke on a huge skyscraper. Duke must proceed to Dr. Proton's well guarded hideout believed to be hidden deep underground. Dr. Proton must be stopped or the world is doomed!
Proton: You may have defeated me on Earth, but on the Moon I can make plans for my ulimate attack!
Duke: Proton, you coward! You can run but you can't hide!
Proton: Once my forces are together, I'll be back to rule Earth.
Duke: Not if I can stop you first...
In episode two, Duke rockets to the moon to infiltrate Dr. Proton's massive lunar fortress. Continue your adventure in "Mission: Moonbase", where you'll encounter: New levels, new puzzles, new graphics, and more non-stop action.
EPISODE TWO - MISSION: MOONBASE
When we last saw Duke he had just barely survived an encounter with Dr. Proton. Somehow, Duke managed to penetrate Proton's captured city, beat his Techbot guards, and forced Proton to flee to his moonbase. Using Dr. Proton's time transport machine, Duke has decided to chase him to the Moon, and stop him cold... (well, at least that's the plan!)
Proton: Duke, your lucky ways annoy me. I see now how best to be rid of of your pesky presence. There's IS no place to hide from me. Running back to Earth will not save you. But escaping to Earth's future will! Then my Techbot army can build and return victorious!
Duke: Not if I can find a way to stop you...even if I have to follow you into the future...!
Once again you've given Dr. Proton a major set- back, by destroying his lunar fortress. Continue your adventure in "Trapped in the Future"! Duke must chase Dr. Proton into Earth's future to stop the largest threat yet!
EPISODE THREE: TRAPPED IN THE FUTURE!
Again, Duke foiled the mad plans of Dr. Proton. His secret lunar fortress now wrecked, Dr. Proton has transported himself back to Earth, and used his time machine to hide in the Earth's future. There he will once again create a huge army of Techbots that will allow him to control the world. Of course, Duke will not stand for this, and although he'd rather watch Oprah, he heads off to stop Dr. Proton one more time...
Dr. Proton is finally defeated! Using Proton's time warp device Duke returns to Earth's present and is presented the key to the city he saved. (Yeah.) Did you locate all the hidden rooms on each level? On your next Apogee games order please tell us your best Duke Nukum high score.
