EDuke32- A first person shooter game for Linux

Eduke32 is  awesome first person shooter game and a cross-platform Duke3D (Duke Nukem 3D) port which provides many new features for mod authors, including an enhanced scripting system and OpenGL renderer. It offers countless platforms on which to build and improve on and with no shortage of Duke Nukem enthusiasts it can only get better, Thanx to Eduke32’s creators we are able to match memory and relive our gaming youth with much greater graphics.

As a first-person shooter, the gameplay of Duke Nukem 3D involves moving through levels presented from the protagonist’s point of view, shooting enemies on the way.
The environment of Duke Nukem 3D is highly destructible; most props can be destroyed by the player.



Weapons and equipment

Weapons include the “Mighty Boot”, a basic kick attack, a pistol, a shotgun, a chain gun (similar in design to the Nordenfelt gun), a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, pipe bombs, freeze- and shrink-rays, laser trip mines, and rapid fire rocket launchers (one each hand) called the “Devastator”.

Other items can be picked up during play. A portable medkit allows players to heal Duke whenever they choose to. Steroids speed up Duke’s movement, as well as instantly reversing the effects of the shrinker. Nightvision goggles allow players to see enemies in the dark. The “HoloDuke” device projects a hologram of Duke that can be used to distract enemies. Protective boots allow Duke to cross dangerously hot or toxic terrain. Where progress requires more aquatic legwork, scuba gear (an aqua-lung) allows Duke to take longer trips away from air. Duke’s jetpack allows the player to move vertically.


The game features a wide range of monsters, some of which are aliens, other mutated humans (the LAPD has been turned into “Pig-cops”, a play on the derogatory term “pig” for police officers, with LARD emblazoned on their uniforms). As is usual for a first-person shooter, Nukem encounters a large number of lesser foes, and a small number of boss enemies (usually at the end of chapters). Like Duke, these enemies have access to a wide range of weapons and equipment (some weaker enemies have jet packs).

    Don’t you need the game maps to be imported in order to play this? Without the maps from the original CD you can’t play it. I used to have the official Duke3D CD back in the old days… but I don’t know where it is now. I wish I could play this game again. It is one of my favorite games.

    Do you know where I can get the original or 3rd party maps?

    You totaly missed the best of this! What you need is the Polymer release of the Duke HRP. I don’t know if they do it for Linux, but it totaly brings duke into the 21st century! Head over for it!

    Some time ago, I needed to buy a good car for my firm but I did not earn enough cash and could not order something. Thank God my sister suggested to get the personal loans at reliable creditors. Thence, I did that and used to be satisfied with my student loan.

    I will recommend not to hold back until you earn big sum of cash to order goods! You should get the loans or just financial loan and feel free

  • LucilleOrtiz22

    I guess that to get the mortgage loans from banks you should have a great motivation. However, one time I’ve received a financial loan, because I wanted to buy a house.

  • ROSEWarner23

    Houses and cars are not very cheap and not everybody can buy it. But, loan are created to help people in such kind of hard situations.

  • GambleMildred34

    Lots of specialists claim that personal loans aid a lot of people to live their own way, because they are able to feel free to buy needed things. Furthermore, a lot of banks offer secured loan for young and old people.
