Game Hint for
Episode 3 Level 7
The trouble that you are having with
Duke Nukum I Episode 3 level 7 is not a bug. The way to get out of the
section that you are in is very close to the beginning of the level.
After getting the grappling hooks
return to the beginning of the level. Jump up and to your right, and
stand on the left edge of the step. From the edge, jump up and to the
left, and there will be a section that you can grab with your grappling
hooks. Grab onto the grappling hooks, and you will be able to flip yourself
up and continue the game.
What's the deal
with Duke Nukem & Duke Nukum?
There is frequently a great deal of
confusion over the correct spelling of one of Apogee's most prized
characters, Duke Nukem. The original spelling for the name was
"Duke Nukem"; however, during the code fix stage between
v1.0 and v2.0 of the original game, Apogee found a character overseas
named "Duke Nukem" that was thought to be copyrighted. So,
for v2.0 of the original Duke game, the name was changed to "Duke
Nukum." Then, during the programming of Duke Nukem 2 (That's the
sequel, not version 2 of the original), it was
discovered that the character they found overseas was not copyrighted
after all -- and so the original name was reinstated. "Duke
Nukem" is also the spelling used in all successive games that
featured the character.
The spellings "Duke Nuke
'em," "Duke Nuke'um," "Duke Nuke'm,"
"Duke Nuk'em" and other variations are not, and were never,

That's because there is none! The
only sounds this game makes are PC Speaker sounds - this game was
originally put out in 1991, in an era when most games had no sound
card support at all.
