Wolfenstein 3D hits 20 years old
The new web browser version, which can be played here, is a faithful full release of the original game, seeing you take the role of an American soldier seeking to escape the Nazi Castle Wolfenstein during World War II.
Bethesda Software has also dropped the price of the stripped down IOS version of Wolfenstein 3D, making it available for free on Itunes for a limited time. The IOS version is compatible with Apple’s Iphone, Ipod Touch, and Ipad devices.
The game is considered by many as the grandparent of most modern FPS game titles. It was originally developed by John Carmack at Id and published by Apogee Software in 1992 as free shareware.
Carmack later went on to team up with designer John Romero to develop the iconic Doom FPS, releasing it just one year later in 1993.
