Wolfenstein 3D is a classic that has been widely regarded as the first game to popularize the first-person shooter genre. This classic has now been ported to the iPhone by its original creators, id Software.
Wolfenstein 3D Classic, the new title for the port, contains all of the six original episodes with 60 classic levels that will bring back very fond memories for some. John Carmack, the founder of id Software, ported the game himself to the iPhone, keeping the original gameplay, graphics, and story intact while implementing multiple control schemes to suit any players needs.
The game has been available for a few days now and has already made its way into the top five paid applications list along with some extremely favorable user reviews.
This may be a sign that App Store gamers love their classics, or have been simply starved of first-person shooters. John Carmack intends to port another one of id Software’s classics, Doom, to the iPhone very soon. Wolfenstein 3D Classic is currently priced at $4.99 at the App Store.
Are any of you excited to finally get your hands on some of id Software’s classics, or is the price too steep for something you originally played back in 1992?
