Dave Gnukem – a retro-style 2D scrolling platform shooter similar to, and inspired by, Duke Nukem 1 (~1991). The source code is cross-platform and open source. It runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and more. (The original Duke Nukem 1 had 16-color EGA 320×200 graphics; the aim here is ‘similar but different’ gameplay and ‘look and feel’. It is kind of a parody of the original. Please note it is not a ‘clone’, and not a ‘re-make’.)

Duke Nukem 1 was a famous original 16-color 320×200 ‘classic’ game released by Apogee Software in 1991 that launched the Duke Nukem series: https://goo.gl/yP4PbS The original Duke Nukem 1 was created by Todd Replogle (co-creator of the Duke Nukem series), John Carmack (of id Software), Scott Miller (founder of 3D Realms), Allen H. Blum III, George Broussard, and Jim Norwood.
