    I: ABOUT THIS FAQ & ME
    ---------------------
    
    This FAQ is for the Game.Com version of Duke Nukem 3D. Right now it is 
    incomplete because I still have to add the layout of all the levels, 
    but right now I'll just tell you about some basic things. This is my 
    first FAQ and i wanted to pick a game that no one had written a FAQ on 
    yet, so I decided to choose Duke 3D for the game.com. For an 8-bit sys-
    tem, the game.com does a very good job of bringing Duke 3D to the small
    screen. If you would like to use this Faq on a web page or update it, 
    please e-mail me and tell me so I can keep track of who reads my FAQs
    for future reference. You are free to update this FAQ, just leave my 
    name and e-mail address on it and please make a link to my webpage on
    your site where you'll be posting this FAQ.The address is:

    ---------------------
    II: THE GAME
    ---------------------
    
    If youve ever played Duke 3D before, you know the story. The Earth has 
    been invaded by aliens, and it's your job to stop them, and destroy 
    them. To do this though you have to use many different weapons and 
    attack methods to take all the alien enemies out.
    
    Duke Nukem 3D for the game.com is very different then it's PC counter-
    part because in this version, you can only move forward, backwards, 
    and strafe left & right. In the PC version, you can turn left and 
    right, and then move forward, but in this version you can only  strafe 
    left and right. While this does take some getting used to, in the end 
    it's easy to navigate in the 3D levels.
    
    Here are the controls for the game:
    
    A: Fire Current Weapon
    B: Aim Left & Shoot
    C: Aim Right & Shoot
    D: Cycle Through Weapons
    UP: Move Forward
    DOWN: Move Backwards
    LEFT: Strafe Left
    RIGHT: Strafe Right
    UP + D: Open Doors
    
    ---------------------
    III: THE WEAPONS
    ---------------------
    
    Boot-	This is your only weapon when your ammo runs out. You shouldn't 
    	ever have to use it though, because ammo is always plentiful. 
    	If you do have to use it though, you should stop playing 
    	because all your doing is wasting your time because your such a
     	bad player.
    
    Pistol-	Takes clips of pistol ammo. Can fire 6 rounds in a row without 
    	having to reload. Can carry a maximum of 200 bullets. Each Clip
    	& Pistol comes with 6 rounds of ammo in it.
    
    Shotgun-More powerful weapon. Probably the weapon you'll be using the 
    	most throughout the game. Can only fire 1 round and then it has 
    	to reload. Can carry a maximum of 50 rounds. Each shotgun & box
    	of ammo you find is also has 6 rounds included with it, just 
    	like the pistol.
    
    RPG-	Short for Rocket Propelled Grenade. Kills all enemies in one 
    	shot. Hard to find ammo for it. Powerful against Octobrain & 
    	Enforcer. Each RPG and box of shells come with 5 rounds of ammo
    	for it. The RPG can carry 50 rounds at a time.
    
    ---------------------
    IV: THE ENEMIES
    ---------------------
    
    Assault Troops-	Most common type of enemy found in the game. These can 
    		be killed with a few rounds of ammo or one shot from a 
    		shotgun or the rpg.
    
    Pig Cop-	Easy to kill, good source of ammo for the shotgun. 
    		Shouldn't cause too much trouble.
    
    Enforcer-	Can cause a lot of damage (if you don't have armor) so 
    		take him out quickly with eith the rpg or shotgun.
    
    Octobrain-	Not quite as powerful as the Enforcer, but he is harder
    		to kill. You can kill this guy with one shotgun blast 
    		if the back of his head is pointing at you. When facing
    		him dead on in a narrow passageway, run up to him, 
    		shoot, run back 3 steps, and then run back at him and 
    		shoot him with your shotgun. This should kill him 
    		everytime and he won't even shoot back!
    
    ---------------------
    V: THE ITEMS
    ---------------------
    
    Med Kit-	If you pick this up you'll replenish Duke's health a 
    		lot.
    
    Armor-		Will protect you a lot from enemies such as Enforcer 
    		and Octobrain's attacks.
    
    Key Card-	Hidden throughout levels and used to unlock doors.
