The Original FPS!

Pretty good recreation of the original that definitely brings back the nostalgia

- Fun with the right controller settings
- New automap function!
- It's Wolfenstein!!!
- "Fruit Bubble" "MY NAME IS!!!" ;)

- Crashes a lot
- Hard to tell what difficulty level you selected
- I guess the game saves automatically. Would be nice to have multiple save slots. Just in case, you know, a friend might want try it real quick.

Tip: Highly recommend using "Preset 3" for the controller option under "Settings". I also swap the location of "Fire" and your "Bullet Count" under the "Advanced" option. I keep my thumb on the left control at all times while only tapping the controls on the right side when needed.

It may take a little to get used to but I have found the game to be far more enjoyable this way and easier to control. Have fun!!!

A fun familiar experience, just with poor handling

I've played the free demo, and this is Wolfenstein 3D as I know it . . . or at least pretty darn close. The challenge is the same, with the quality level design and nasty combat of the old, simple quasi-3D game that made history.

It's not exactly the same, though. The game has the occasional "graphic upgrade" that looks odd in context, unclear weapon selection (you're supposed to tap your weapon itself), and a repurposed role for treasures that makes them into health bonuses. Also, of course, any "virtual joystick" on a touchscreen is going to handle poorly. They've at least tried to make that less painful by allowing you to customize the controls, so you can set everything up for how you want to hold the screen.

Those looking for a taste of the classic are recommended to download it.

Amazing Controls+Amazing Graphics=Amazing Port

To those of you who claim that the game suffers from its "terrible controls", I'm afraid you're sadly mistaken. The ability to fully customize the control scheme makes any problems with the controls virtually nonexistent. I can play this game for hours on end and have no issues with the controls. All it takes is a little experimentation to get the controls adjusted just right to your gaming preferences. Furthermore, the updated graphics and additional levels from Spear of Destiny makes this game a must have for Wolfenstein fans and newcomers alike.
