What's New in Version 2.2
In-App Purchase fix
The free version was a lot like the original in the 80s-cool
I played this free version and it was a nice trip down memory lane for me, this was the first of the first-person shooters back in the 1980s, me and the engineers at the place I worked all played this game, at lunch time only of course, he-he. Anyway, it was fun then and it was fun now but I only was able to go a couple of levels with the free version so I'm going for the platinum one now. It is different on an iPad but you get the hang of it quickly.
I have always wanted to play this game and was super excited when I saw it on the App Store. Despite not-so-great reviews, I got lite anyways. What has been said I am only here to back up. These are the worst controls on the face of the planet, and I have no idea what to do. Can I also please have a little backstory? Why am I in this prison place, you know? Maybe a tutorial or something? But first fix the controls. They are awful. I couldn't even maneuver the first level. At all.
Nice try, but no
I grew up on this game - played it for hours on my 486. I looked it up on a whim to see if it had been ported to iPhone, and yep, it had. But in my opinion, the controls make the game unplayable.
I stuck with it for an entire level, and afterward, I felt befuddled and a little sea-sick. I'll grant Carmack and crew were visionaries indeed, but holy wow is this control scheme awful. I have no desire to play this anymore. Maybe with a Bluetooth keyboard it would be fine.
I also miss the old AdLib OPL-2 soundtrack. The modern audio rendering is not as charming, and has a very obvious pause at the loop point. Yegch. Just seems sloppy, especially given the capabilities of modern hardware, compared to what they accomplished back in the day.
Get yourself a copy of the PC version, and a DOS emulator if need be. Skip this port.
