iPhone App: Wolfenstein 3D Classic
= 3 stars
Kill as many Nazis as possible in this near exact port of the classic PC shoot ‘em up.
- Controls are well-implemented. There’s a d-pad style joystick on the left side of the screen and a fire button on the right.
- The novelty of playing this classic game on the iPhone soon wore off, and I realized I wasn’t a big fan of this game when it originally came out. The graphics are noticeably silly and the sound is laughable – neither has aged well.
- Yet another classic game being offered for $4.99. The price feels rather steep, especially when there are really solid, new games selling for less.
Let me know when Doom or Quake shows up as an iPhone app. Until then, I suppose I can be somewhat satisfied shooting yelping Nazis.
