Developer - n-Space, 3D Realms Entertainment

Release date - September 30, 1998

Duke Nukem: Time to Kill is a third-person shooter developed by n-Space.


The game opens with an introduction video sequence of Duke riding his motorbike towards the Bootylicious Strip Club in downtown Los Angeles, only to find the Pig Cops teleporting in to disrupt his fun, turning his motorcycle into a pink child's bicycle. Duke takes out the Pig Cops and the game begins. The video sequence is accompanied by the song "The Thing I Hate" by Stabbing Westward. Apparently, an alien race called the Draks are causing havoc in Earth's timeline, and are aiming to kill Duke. Its up to him now to clean up the timeline.


The gameplay and controls are very similar to those of Tomb Raider, a fact humorously referenced throughout the game. Aside from Tomb Raider, the game references The Evil Dead, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the Back to the Future series and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The game also features a 2-Player Deathmatch option, where 2 players can battle against each other in environments loosely based on the single-player stages referring to the different time periods. The multiplayer stages can also be accessed in the single-player game by finding stopwatches or 'Surprises.' If these hidden items are found, the player is given an opportunity to take on a horde of enemies in the multiplayer stages using an upgraded version of the current weapon used, with the prize for completion being to keep the upgrade for the remainder of the game.
