While Duke Nukem Forever's development cycle is starting to sound like something from Waiting For Godot, the latest spin-off for the Duke is already on shelves around the world. We are of course talking about Duke Nukem : Manhattan Project, a fully 3D side-scrolling shooter from Arush and Sunstorm Interactive, distributed in Europe by Ubi Soft. Now a demo version of the game is available, featuring the first of its eight episodes, which takes Duke across the rooftops and fire escapes of the Manhattan skyline, stopping only to kill mutant pig cops and rescue damsels in distress. As Duke himself commented, "bullets and babes, I love this job." The 50Mb demo is available to download from the game's official website. There you will also find a small patch for the retail version of the game, which fixes a variety of fairly minor bugs, as well as making sure the game will work properly on old AMD K6-2 and K6-3 CPUs, and that you don't need TCP/IP installed to play the game. Don't ask. Still not sure whether to buy the game? We'll have a full review for you next week. Related Feature - Manhattan Project preview
