Duke Nukem Mobile is the name of two games developed by MachineWorks Northwest. This article refers to the 3D first-person shooter. For the 2D side-scrolling game, see Duke Nukem Mobile.

Duke Nukem Mobile for the Tapwave Zodiac handheld console was released in May 2004. It is a first-person shooter in the style of Duke Nukem 3D, and re-uses weapon and enemy sprites from that game, but features original levels. It consists of 21 short levels set in locations such as streets, strip clubs, cemeteries, mansions and a futuristic dirigible. In order to pass from a level to the next it is necessary to kill the enemies that are present in the current level, until one of them drops a key card that will enable the access to the next level.
