Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project Demo Released

Available today is a demo for Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, the hit PC game from ARUSH & 3D Realms. Without further ado, here's some info about the game:

Game Description

Duke has a new nemesis, and this time it's not scumbag aliens! It may be even worse..

Mech Morphix has perfected GLOPP (Gluon Liquid Omega Phased Plasma), a slimy, radioactive substance that mutates living things on contact. After using his own henchman guinea pigs, turning them into grotesque beasts, he unleashed the ozze on the city of New York. With an elaborate pipeline to manufacture and ship the powerful plasma to a secret labl, Morphix plans to use it to take over the world (of course).

Morphix thinks GLOPP will help him rule the planet, but Duke's GLOPP powered weapons just might turn the tables on Morphix's plan!

Game Highlights

* Fast-action 3rd person platform gaming in a rich 3D environment
* Dynamic, zoomable camera gets you close to the action and shows Duke battling it out from many different angles
* 8 huge, immersive NY-themed missions: Rooftop Rebellion, Chinatown Chiller, Metro Madness, Unholy Underworld, Fearsome Factory, Tanker Trouble, Deviant Drilling and the final out-of-this-world episode
* 9 powerful weapons: Golden Eagle Pistol, Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Pipe Bomb, GLOPP Ray, Pulse Cannon, Pneumatic Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher and the Mighty Boot kick. Plus, some weapons get powerful upgrades by collecting all Nuke symbols in the various skill levels, leading up to the incredible X-3000!
* More than 25 enemies ranging from the Gator-Oids, mutated Uzi-wielding alligators, to Fem-Mechs, female robot mutants with deadly whips. Classic Duke enemies like the PigCops will also be among the dead piled up at your feet
