What's New in Version 2.2
iOS 8 Update
5 stars for the game itself. 1 star for the lack of any recent update. I think that averages out to 3.
I played the freeware/shareware version of this game on my first real computer which was a 386 with 4mb of RAM. I was delighted when I was able to play this game on my iPhone 3G. I would really like it to continue to be available. Mr Carmack spent much time and effort to not only write the original game but also port it to the iPhone. What a shame if those efforts are allowed to languish when all that are needed are some compatibility updates.
The game itself is a solid 5 star. The port handles and feels great. The problem is the game needs serious updates to handle the stability issues. The game will randomly crash and since the game doesn't save on the fly once there is a crash you have to resort to the save state created when you started the latest play session, that could mean you have to replay over 40 minutes of gameplay. It seems like the issue is around the load screen since it happens occasionally when either you resume a game or get to an exit.
Castle Wolfenstein Must Live On!
As a long time Apple user (my 1978 vintage Apple II still runs!) I spent many a joyful hour conquering the castle over the years. When the iOS version came out the joy was rekindled better than ever. I would LOVE to see Wolfenstein upgraded for iOS 11. A tvOS version for the Apple TV would be AWESOME - an immediate buy at a premium cost. PLEASE! Keep CW alive!
