470478While we all wait for Doom Classic to be approved in the App Store, id Software has released a major update to their popular Wolfenstein 3D Classic game which adds a ton of new content.

Features include:

  • Now with the Spear of Destiny levels - 21 total new maps
  • 5 new Bosses
  • New enemy - Ghosts
  • Download custom made maps
  • Double tap to Zoom in-game map
  • id Software trivia section
  • Scrolling map selection menus

The update is free for existing Wolfenstein 3D Classic owners and remains at only $1.99. The map download instructions are detailed here. Instead of in-app downloads, id allows you to distribute .map files through Safari which load the maps directly into Wolfenstein 3D on the iPhone. To create levels, you will need to download a Wolfenstein 3D map editor for your computer.

    I've always loved iD software (apogee) and this is why. Its not enough that they added new content they went ahead and overhauled the entire game. I just downloaded the game on sunday and have played through the first 3 episodes and then this comes out. I was thinking 3 more episodes and i'll be bored again. WRONG. Instead i can now play another 10 hours or so of new content and when that gets boring i'll be able to play user created levels. Imo this is by far the best bang for your buck FPS on the apple store and possibly ever anywhere. Thank you for all you've done ID, you've really made my workouts so much more fun. Oh yeah i play wolf 3d while riding my recumbent bike, it makes time fly! Highly recommended. Doom will be an instant purchase upon its arrival at the app store.

    I wish Duke Nukem would adopt the same controls, they work so well!

    Oh, this is just *awesome*. This is why ID rock. They make good games, they don't do shoddy ports, and they don't skimp on the content.

    I gotta echo Gerald that Duke Nukem should be even half this good. (Freaking shoddy freaking lazy freaking port ..I swear I wanna bitch-slap that dev if I ever meet them.)

    Holy crap, I'm definelty going to make an iPhone friendly map hosting service for people. I loved map editing for the old wolf.

    I'll host maps for free on my website. Post a topic somewhere on my forums (www.nick.fuseirc.net Very reliable and expensive host), I'll post them up ASAP.

    Update is great but the sound is CUT in half?? I reloaded the WOLF 1.1 that works loud I can hear the guards and guns, but 1.2 sound is quit. Never really need my headphones for my ipod touch 2G to play games.

    Wow. This is freaking cool. You know damn well Doom is gonna get some major love. Community mapping is going to be great if people jump in. Id is giving us our moneys worth. Very excited with their presence on the iPhone. Thank you Carmack and company.

  • preston

    This is amazing. Not only was the initial port perfect, it also managed to be the best FPS available for the iphone imo. (helps to have played it back in the day). I was surprised to see the price now at $2, but for once I didn't mind at all that I paid $5 or whatever. I would have paid $10. Then they go and release this amazing free update, one of the if not THE most generous ever, knowing full well they could have gotten more $$ from people. [I had no issues with this update on my 3G except my controls were off the screen when I resumed my [old] game, all it took to fix was going into control options and picking one again.]

    I have no doubt that Doom will only top this, can't wait to buy it the day it comes out. Thank you id!

    iD is a first-class organization. They show a dedication to $2 games that other developers don't show for $60 games.

    This should hold me over until Doom is out.

    For those that remember, Wolfenstein held the top #1 spot for computer games back in the 80's for many many months! Played the original on a C-64.
    Just grabbed this for my touch....
    Developers need to bring back alot of the old timers...

    Lucky...

    I had problems with the game crashing as well, and deleted it from my iPhone, and iTunes and re-downloaded it which helped. But it still crash occasionally.

    It dosen't seem well tested. I hope there will come an update soon.

  • streven

    Anyone else think this was submitted at the same time as doom classic, it just seems strange that another Id app is out just around the time we are expecting doom, if so then it bodes well for doom being out within the next week or so..

    I bought Wolf3D Classic Platinum version 1.3 and I am encountering the same sound problem everytime. It would play for a while but when I fire at the enemies, more often than not, the sound would stop completely. Music would still be playing though. I think it has to do with too many sounds going off at once. In order to get the sound back I'd have to exit the game and start the App again. Is anybody else having this glitch? Suggestions or help would be very much appricated.
