Duke Nukem 3D ® for Xbox LIVE Arcade

Duke Nukem, the politically incorrect action hero and ultimate alien ass kicker, defends Earth and its babes from alien invasion. This is the award winning game that helped define the FPS genre and that introduced unparalleled interactivity and a main character that spoke. Take the fight to the aliens across 39 levels featuring Hollywood, Los Angeles, a moon base and alien spacecraft. Innovative items like the Jetpack, HoloDuke, Shrink Ray or Pipe Bombs, allow you to fight the aliens in any style you want. Defeat the aliens, so Duke can get back to some R&R with a stogie, a warm belly and a bottle of Jack.

Available now from 3D Realms for the Xbox 360



Prey is the story of Tommy, who is a down-on-his-luck garage mechanic, stuck in the middle on who-knows-where on some forgotten reservation, where Native Americans are tucked away out of sight, out of mind.

And then the unthinkable happens! Earth becomes prey to the galaxy's largest predator, a space bound Texas-sized alien that's looking to satiate its hunger with the organic goodness that most populates Earth: Us. And the first course is a certain forgotten reservation.

Max Payne

Three years back a young NYPD cop, Max Payne, came home one night to find his family senselessly slaughtered by a gang of drug-crazed junkies, high on a previously unknown synthetic drug. Now that same drug, Valkyr, has spread through the whole New York City like a nightmare plague, and Max Payne’s on a crusade for revenge, out to get even. To Drug Enforcement Administration, DEA, this new drug was evil incarnate, to be stopped at any cost.  Max's boss and best friend, the only one who knew his true identity, has been murdered, and Max's been framed for the slaying.

Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition

The classic PC action game of all time - the one that launched Duke Nukem into superstardom!  The Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D includes the original Duke Nukem 3D, as well as the built-in Plutonium PAK!

This game, set sometime in the early 21st century, begins in a ravaged LA, which was overtaken by aliens. Duke, upon returning to Earth, finds himself with another mess to clean up, and another alien race that needs exterminating. Duke is a can-do hero who realizes that sometimes innocent people have to die in order to save Earth, so accuracy of gun fire is not a real concern to him.

Available now from 3D Realms for the PC & from MacSoft for the Macintosh.





All the following games have been discontinued AND ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.   It is not legal for you to email/upload/download/trade/distribute these titles under any condition.  We do, however, retain the copyright on all of these games: Balls of Steel (it is the only one left that is discontinued but not released as freeware).

Here's a few special exception notes regarding some other titles that have been 'discontinued'. 

  • We do not retain any copyright or control on the following titles: Star Trek Trivia, Star Trek: TNG Trivia, and Jumpman Lives! (which means we don't care what you do with these three games - we don't have anything to do with them anymore).  They cannot be considered public domain, as there are copyright holders for the source material for these titles, and they'd probably care.

  • Commander Keen VI: Aliens Ate My Babysitter & Spear of Destiny have also been discontinued by their distributor (these are not nor ever were actual Apogee games, we only resold them), and are no longer available. Furthermore, Keen: Galaxy in CGA is no longer available (but the EGA version still is).

  • Extreme Rise of the Triad was an addon pack produced for Rise of the Triad back in 1995.  While this title has been discontinued on its own, the extra materials that were on EROTT have been rolled into the current version of ROTT available for download from our online store combined with a free release we put out in February of 2005 called "The ROTT Goodies Pack".  Between the two of them, you have everything that was on the EROTT CD (except for some shareware and game videos which are also available for download on our site).

  • Boppin was withdrawn at the request of the original author, and has since been re-released by him on his own as freeware (for Windows).  You can get that here, but we have nothing to do with this release.  The original DOS version we distributed is discontinued and no longer available (and why you'd want it when there's a Windows version, we don't know).

  • The Duke Nukem 3D Plutonium PAK was discontinued - it was merely a patch that upgraded your v1.3d registered game to the Atomic Edition.  You can now buy the Atomic Edition here which has The Plutonium PAK built into it already, the patch is not needed for that CD.


Selected games from our past have been released into freeware, which means that you are free to download the full, registered versions of them.  We do however, retain copyright on them, so you are not "free to do what you want" with them.  Please be aware also, that these freeware releases are provided "as is".  We offer no support on them of any kind.  You're on your own in trying to get them to run, but this is usually helpful.

The freeware titles released to date are: Adventure Fun Pack, Alien Carnage/Halloween Harry, Arctic Adventure, Beyond the Titanic, Bio Menace, Caves of Thor, Dark Ages, Kroz, Major Stryker, Monuments of Mars, Pharaoh's Tomb, Puzzle Fun Pack, Stargunner, Supernova, Wolfenstein 3D Super Upgrade Pack, Word Whiz, Trivia Whiz, & Xenophage. 

These downloads can all be obtained from their respective areas in our downloads page


Selected games have had their source code released by us.  These games are: Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Rise of the Triad, Word Whiz, Beyond the Titanic, Supernova, & Kroz.  You can obtain these from our downloads page.


In the 20 or so years this company has been around, we've developed, produced, or been involved with 70+ titles in all.  There's information on everything listed here in Apogee/3D Realms FAQ.  Make sure and check it out in the FAQ area of our web site.

Don't forget to visit the cheat code area!




There is a line of novels, hint guides, and other types of books available for several of our games (Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, etc...)  Our Books Page has a complete list of them as well as ordering information and links that you can use to purchase the books online through!


Some of our games have been ported to console systems such as the Xbox, Playstation 1/2, and (further back) the Nintendo 64.  There are both copies of our existing Duke Nukem 3D game for the PC, as well as original cartridge games.  Some of these titles can still be ordered online through the links on the Console Games page, most are out of print, though.


These are a few items that don't quite fit into the other categories.  Included here are game compilations, and Interactive Strategy Guides.   If you have not yet purchased Duke Nukem 3D or Shadow Warrior, you might want to check out the compilations listed here.  Check out our Other Products Page for information on these items..


For awhile there was a line of action figures based off characters from our Duke Nukem 3D game.  These range from the Pig Cop, to the Octabrain, and more!   However, the company that made the figures is no longer in business, and as such, the figures are not being made anymore.  If the situation ever changes and they're made again (or new ones are made), we will update our page with that info.
