Regular readers of the forum will know that Apple’s new machine isn’t that popular with certain members. This is something of a shame as it’s a great little device that’s constantly proving itself as the portable retro machine of choice (unless of course you’re carrying around a PSP with hundreds of illegal ROMS).
Anyway, the latest classic to hit Apple’s machine is an impressive port of Wolfenstein 3D and bloody good it is too. Ported by none other than John Carmack himself, it’s incredibly polished can be controlled in a variety of different ways and looks very, very nice on the iPhone’s pin-sharp screen.
Done as a pet project (Carmack apparently coded most of it in his spare time) Wolfenstein 3D shows just what is possible on the iPhone and paves the way for future FPSs; both from id Software and other companies. Currently available on the AppStore for a paltry few quid it’s definately worth a download and is a most own if you’re a fan of the franchise.
Amazingly slick; Wolfenstein 3D plays extremely well. DOOM is apparently on the way as well. Good Times, as Justin Lee Collins might say.
A quick tap of the screen brings up the ma screen. Handy for searching out all those secret rooms you’ve yet to find.
