Picked this up on GOG.com for $6. I used to play this a lot in my childhood.

Need more convincing? There's a Duke Nukem table.

more of a fan of the aliens table, played the hell out of it from the demo in one of the earlier pcpowerplay mags, bought the game and still go back to that demo level. How does it handle win 7 and onwards?

For the most part, it handles Windows 7 great (as per GOG.com's testing process). However, there is a nasty bug that causes the StickyKeys shortcut to turn itself back on while playing the game.

I contacted GOG.com support about this and got an updated launcher that solves this issue.

Buy it from GOG.com then use the updated launcher I posted. It's only $6 and it means you don't have to look for the disc anymore. The original retail release (even when patched) isn't guaranteed to work on Windows 7.
