Shrink Ray • Duke Nukem 3D

Hyper - - ESSAY -

Per­haps be­cause it took for­ever to get a proper (and ter­ri­ble) se­quel, Duke Nukem 3D clung to a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing a funny game. It wasn’t, of course. Stolen one-lin­ers and misog­yny are rarely very funny. But if any­thing de­served to elicit a chuckle it was the shrink ray. Score a di­rect hit on a pig cop and the shrink ray does what it says on the tin, scal­ing the pre­vi­ously in­tim­i­dat­ing sprite down to a size barely larger than Duke’s heav­ily booted foot. Which he then raises be­fore glee­fully stomp­ing down and squish­ing the lit­tle piggy.
