Duke Nukem 3D for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis is a little-known port of Duke Nukem 3D. It was released only in Brazil by local Sega distributor Tec Toy in 1998 and re-released in the whole world in 2015 by Piko Interactive.
It is a highly simplified version of the game, going so far as to only include a simplified version of the second episode, Lunar Apocalypse.
Rather than porting the level design from the original game, this version features original levels with a flat layout and 90-degree angles only (similar to Wolfenstein 3D). Textures, sprites, and sounds are largely ported from the PC version in greatly reduced quality. The game is considered to be very advanced for the Sega Genesis 16-bit console.
Some internet sources state that while 3D Realms considers the game unauthorized, Tec Toy claims to have obtained a license from publisher GT Interactive.
It has been speculated that the game is an extensive modification of the Sega Genesis FPS game Zero Tolerance.
Although it seems to use an older version of build engine.

At the very beginning of the game, there is no storyline. If it counts, the back cover of the game gives a brief explanation on what to expect from the game's storyline; "It's time to kick some ass! Alien killers are about to invade Los Angeles. From one moment to another, the human race becomes threatened with extinction. Now only Duke Nukem can prevent this massacre on planet Earth, doing what he does best: EXPLODING, DETONATING, MASSACRE, SKINNING and ANNIHILATING aliens!" (Translated by BroNsisGaming )
"Duke cracked his knuckles and smirked, 'I need a stiff drink... a shower... and, a soft-skinned belly to lie my head on.' A nearby moniter flickered on, and an incredibly ugly face spoke an ominous message: 'The moon assault Overlord has been defeated, as was our Battlelord on Earth. But while Duke Nukem has been distracted our main attack wave has begun it's final assault on Earth. We shall obliterate all resistance.' 'Guess again, freak show, ' Duke growled. 'Duke's coming back to town, and the last thing that's gonna go through your mind before you die... is my size 13 boot!'"
This makes a brief explanation as to why there were pictures of the Battlelord and Cycloid Emperor bosses in SECRET LASER.
