Wolfenstein 3D for S60 3rd Edition Phones
Symbian S60 just gets another PC port, Wolfenstein 3D the port of the very well known PC game for the S60 3rd edition phones. Of course, just like any other port beside the emulator you’ll also need an original game data file to get it to work.
It has been ported to a wide variety of systems, including 3DO, Super NES, Game Boy Advance, Acorn Archimedes, Atari Jaguar, and the Apple IIGS and finally Symbian.
I am not sure about gameply, as I didn’t tested it yet but graphic definitely doesn’t looks very attractive for me, but is actually expectable from one DOS game released 15 years ago. Doom, Ohinkka’s Quake or Quake 2 ports looks quite better but If you are in love with atmospheric first person shooters, this games does fit the bill really well because game itself is really fun and challenging.
Wolfenstein 3D (originally Wolfenstein 3-D, commonly abbreviated to Wolf 3D) is a video game that is generally regarded as having popularized the first person shooter genre on the PC. It was created by id Software and published by Apogee Software. Released on May 5, 1992 for DOS, the game was inspired by the 1980s Muse Software computer games Castle Wolfenstein and Beyond Castle Wolfenstein.
In Wolfenstein 3D, the player is an American soldier named BJ Blazkowicz attempting to escape from the eponymous Nazi stronghold; there are many armed guards, as well as attack dogs. The building has a number of hidden rooms containing various treasures, food supplies, and medical kits, as well as three different guns and ammunition.
Wolfenstein 3D was released as shareware, which allowed it to be copied widely. The shareware release contains one episode, consisting of 10 missions (levels). The commercial release consists of three episodes including the shareware episode, and a mission pack called "The Nocturnal Missions". Like the shareware episode, each commercial episode contains 10 levels, bringing the game to a total of 60 missions.
