Hail to the King baby, Duke Nukem 3D is now available for free on all iOS devices. The game which many have called the best Duke Nukem outing on mobile devices is now available for the irresistible price of zero, so if you’ve somehow managed to avoid the game until now you’ve run out of excuses. Go download the title, before Duke comes to your house and puts his cigar out in your eye.

The game has been handcrafted for iOS, ditching traditional shooter controls and instead creating whole new movement and navigation mechanics from scratch. The slider-based controls, coupled with the unique TapShoot combat mechanics make the game easy to play, while still retaining a fair amount of challenge. And yes, if you’re a traditionalist you can turn on a classic thumbstick onscreen controller so no griping allowed about how you don’t like these newfangled controls.

The new control scheme, coupled with the franchise’s trademark humor, create a game which is considered by many to be an iOS classic, and rightly so. Whether you’ve never played the game before and just want to check it out or maybe you have the standard version of the game and want to pick up the HD edition on iPad now’s the time, as you can’t beat a game this good being available for literally nothing.

We’re currently unsure how long the game will be available for gratis, as we believe this to be a temporary price cut rather than a permanent price reduction. In that case, it would be best not to hem and haw around, and instead go ahead and grab as many copies of the game as you want right now before the price goes back up. Don’t wait around and miss out; after all, those aliens aren’t going to shoot themselves in the face.
