Duke Nukem 3D

On August 10th, 2009, MachineWorks Northwest did what other developers called impossible and released a Duke Nukem game. In a somewhat hilarious and shameless move, the developers proved that everyone connected to the Duke Nukem franchise is permanently stuck in the '90s by posting quotes from 13-year-old reviews of the original PC game in their App Store description of the game. All fun-poking aside, we found that with a little customization (which the iPhone version of Duke allows in spades) the controls work quite well and the 1996-era FPS gameplay had us captured all over again. Duke Nukem 3D was a game with real character, and although Apple has censored some of the more offensive bits of the original game for publication on the App Store (those strippers just aren't quite the same with all that pixilation), that unique sense of character still shines through.
