In the year 1997, the maniacal Dr. Proton has developed mechanical creatures known as Techbots. Commanding an army of Techbots, the insane scientist intends to conquer the entire world. There is only one hero on Earth who can stop him with his guns and attitude: Duke Nukum.

Based on the same game engine as Crystal Caves, Duke Nukum, Episode 1: Shrapnel City is a side-scrolling shooter with platform elements. Most of the gameplay consists of shooting enemies and exploring the environments, trying to reach the exit and advance to the next stage. Some of the environment is destructible: obstacles can be eliminated by shooting them. Defeated enemies yield points to the player. Duke can also collect power-ups to increase his health or upgrade his gun, as well as pick up inventory items with special abilities. At the end of most levels the player may receive bonus points, depends on his performance and achievements unlocked during gameplay (e.g. destroying all security cameras).

The game is the first episode of a trilogy; each episode was released separately and also as a complete game. In this episode, Duke hunts for Dr. Proton in a ruined Los Angeles, fending off Techbots who try to stop him.

I have just finished Map05! Yeah! Pretty fast! Why? Well, 1. I am not an experienced user of Unreal, but I am an pretty good and DOOM Mapping, and 2. It turns out you can't Save or Load, so I am trying to make it so you can beat it in a good 30 minutes to an hour. Also, I really don't have the time to do a lot of maps.

This map takes you outside on the ceiling garden (A garden that is grown on the ceiling).

What does this map need to have in order to be improved?

  • A slight blue tint to the lights, to give it a more classy workroom look
  • Some tables and chairs in the offices
  • Replace the textures of the TV so that it is more story relevant (Did I mention this map was gonna tell a story?).
  • Extend one of the office spaces in order to make this map as long as Map04.

That is about it for this update. However, as a warning, this map-set will have FPS issues, at least I did on mine. That is simply due to the amount of enemies on each map... That may sound scary, but trust me, it doesn't take much to make this game piss it's pants like an old grandma in a retirement home. Don't worry, though, I tried this on the new Restoration Repo that can be found in the discord and it ran perfectly fine, though it did hit 40 FPS at times, but that could be my computer being an HP All-In-One. Anyways, hope you have a great night, and I will update you on the status of this game tomorrow!
