The App Store version of id Software's iPhone game Wolfenstein 3D Classic is now available on the App Store. Its available on the App Store for $4.99.
Interestingly, iPhone hacking expert ZodTTD has also released Wolf3D which is a free version of the game on Cydia for the jailbroken iPhone.
ZodTTD has compiled the source code which was published yesterday by John Carmack, co-founder of id Software so it's the exact same game as the one available on the App Store.
Wolfenstein 3D Classic appeared on the App Store last night. Here's the description of the iPhone game:
Person Shooter genre. You are OSA super agent B.J. Blazkowicz and you
must escape from Castle Wolfenstein and defeat the twisted Nazi regime!
You can play the game with on-screen controls for direction and shooting. You also have the option to use tilt controls for either movement or turning which makes use of iPhone's accelerometer.
You can checkout the demo video of Wolfenstein 3D Classic to get an idea:
If you like first person shooter games then you should definitely check it out. It includes all six original episodes with 60 classic levels.
iPhone hacking expert ZodTTD who has ported games like Quake to the jailbroken iPhone has released Wolf3D, by compiling the source code which was published yesterday by John Carmack, co-founder of id Software so it's exactly the same game as the one available on the App Store. Its also a legal copy under the General Public License (GPL) which permits anyone to copy and distribute copies of the game if they distribute them for free.
I downloaded the game from the App Store and played around with it for a bit. Though the graphics seem basic (since its a port of a very old game) it was quite cool (and nostalgic) to play the game on the iPhone.
I also installed "Wolf3D" via Cydia and tried to play the game, but strangely it is crashing every time I try to launch it.
Please give us your feedback of Wolfenstein in the comments section below and don't forget to tell us if you are referring to Wolfenstein 3D Classic or Wolf3D.
Thanks Bryan for the heads up!
