Certainly played the Shareware lots before Dad actually bought the game.
Beat Duke3D on PC, and Xbox.
The Birth is the same as above.
DC was hard but still managed that.
Caribbean had a nice (alternate) final boss.
Nuclear Winter had a bad boss
I have played all the levels of Duke Xtreme.
I just recently beat Duke!Zone 2 but you can't be serious about 500 levels from Duke!Zone itself

Never got past Nightmare Zone (and still can't)
Never owned a N64 and have been keen on the Duke 64 TC to come out.
Duke Assault, what? You expect someone to play through over 1k of levels?

Yeah, it's a pain for a first level. Look for walkthroughs on Youtube.

The first thing I beat was a DEMO of the Shareware version. Only the 3 first levels were in.

I should still have the CD on which it is here.

I've watched many walkthroughs and I just can't replicate them, even on the easiest difficulty.
The controls just ruin it for me sadly.

I had the full game always, but I guess you technically beat the shareware version when you beat the 1st episode.
I've beat Duke Nukem 3d (the retail version) several times.
I've beat the Atomic Edition on PC and Xbox 360.
I did beat DC, but that damn Smithsonian level was confusing (and sharks actually got out of the water!).
Never beat Caribbean without cheating (just was never interested in it).
I'll try to beat Nuclear Winter this December!
Have not really messed around with Duke Xtreme.
I never beat Duke!Zone2 or 1.

I never beat the first level of it yet ffs.
Beat it several times with N64.. Single player and co-op.
Never touched Duke Assault.
(Used Lunicks post as a base for this post :P)

I don't know, but I've had the best moments with the retail version compared to the Atomic or any other version, and for whatever reason, the retail version feels slightly different. Not sure why (and it's not because it has 3 episodes instead of 4).

Also, you forgot LameDuke!!

I've heard of the 1 level demo version (it's somewhere in the forums).. I'd like to see this 3 level version, maybe it has GRP differences.

Try the Doomed control setup! It makes it a whole lot easier.

Edited for hindsight. Will update sometime.

Anyway, I really like Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown. I've beaten the first 3 episodes of it. I actually got through the first level of Plug N Pray; I intend to finish the rest when I get back from my uni semester.

The 3 level version is just the Macintosh demo. It's based on the Atomic Edition but I don't remember if it uses the 1.0/1.1 .art files like 1.3D shareware does or not.

I didn't get the 3 levels demo on macintosh, I got it on PC (to run under DOS obviously), with a french magazine. It's a magazine that used to come every 3 months in France with 3 cds, one full of game demos, one full of (mostly useless) sharewares, utilities and game patches and add-ons (lke user made levels) and one with 3 older full games.
I got plenty of Duke3D usermaps with later issues of this magazine before I got an internet connection (yes they used to collect them and actually sell them with all the other stuff).

Anyway here is the file, I just played it using Dosbox (doesn't run with Eduke32 :P) and it actually is the shareware version but cut down to 3 levels. The only major difference with the final version of the game is how the musics sound, but maybe that's due to Dosbox and not the demo itself. I've spotted other differences but all of them are probably the same minor differences you'd find in the shareware version.

If you beat lvl3 you're back to Hollywood Holocaust with all your gear but with the music of Toxic Dump playing (it even says "Toxic Dump" as level title).

Edit : what the fuck is Duke Assault? Never heard of that

I propose that option is removed and Duke!Zone is changed to Duke!Zone 2

It seems that is nothing but the 1.0 version with only 3 level files.

Here is the list from USER.CON:

definelevelname 0 0 E1L1.map 01:45 00:53 HOLLYWOOD HOLOCAUST
definelevelname 0 1 E1L2.map 05:10 03:21 RED LIGHT DISTRICT
definelevelname 0 2 E1L3.map 05:35 03:41 DEATH ROW
definelevelname 0 3 E1L1.map 07:20 04:40 TOXIC DUMP
definelevelname 0 4 E1L1.map 09:10 05:00 THE ABYSS
definelevelname 0 5 E1L1.map 05:15 02:58 LAUNCH FACILITY
definelevelname 0 6 E1L1.map 00:00 00:00 BLANK
definelevelname 0 7 E1L1.map 00:00 00:00 BLANK

He said "Only listing the Build releases" and that was on Build lol.

I think you can beat some levels, but most you can't get out of without cheating.

That 3 level version is interesting. The GRP file has been edited by hand to blank the names of E1L4.MAP-E1L6.MAP but they're still in the file. There are similar sloppy edits to the screen shown when the game exits. I suspect the magazine just took the released version 1.1 shareware and made their own edits in order to limit it to 3 levels, but I have no idea why they would do such a thing.

Maybe because they weren't allowed to sell it otherwise?
