Duke Nukem 3D for iPhone [App Store, $2.99] received a much anticipated update today, bringing an improved analog control set. I've personally spent some time using this new version and I think that it's much more usable, thanks to the improved controls. They're still not very good, although a bit of fine-tuning in the options has made the game playable. When the game was released last month, it received quite a lot of criticism regarding the controller schemes with many users claiming that the game was simply unplayable. The developer quickly responded stating that an update would bring improvements to the controls.
For fans of classic first-person shooters from yesteryear, the irreplaceable Duke Nukem 3D [App Store, $2.99] has just arrived for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch handsets. The port, developed by 3D Realms, Inc. and published by Machineworks Northwest, still has you facing down a Los Angeles full of aliens to shoot before they can steal the city's babes for breeding purposes.
