PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum

Wolfenstein Box CoverIt is Friday, and that means we hearken back to an earlier decade, when times were simpler, games were basic, and there were only a couple of flavors of Doritos. Last week, we told you about the hit shoot-em-up action game, Contra Evolution HD. If you were a fan of the original, you won’t be disappointed in the iOS version.

This week, we have another shooter game from your past. Only this time, you’ll have an army of undead Nazis to contend with.

Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum is a port of the classic MS-DOS original from 1992. You will be watching the action from the point of view of OSA super agent B.J. Blazkowicz in one of the premier first-person shooter games.

The iOS version includes all six original episodes with 60 different levels. The goal is to escape by shooting down enemies with whatever ammo you’ve got. You can mow down groups of guards with submachine guns, take out Nazis with the epic chain gun, and find the hidden treasure before getting out of the deadly prison.

Players take the point of view of B.J. Blazkowicz and blast away Nazi soldiers who have captured you in Castle Wolfenstein. When you start the game, you only have a knife and your wits. As you fight your way through the prison, you’ll find weapons, ammo, health and more. By the time you’ve made it through all six episodes, you will have taken down the likes of Hans Grosse, Dr. Schabbs, and yes, even MechaHithler.

Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum is available in the App Store for $1.99, but you can try out the first three levels for free by downloading Wolfenstein 3D Classic Lite.

    Awesome! I never really played much Wolfenstein, but I loved Doom, and I thought the crossover level in Doom 2 was a groundbreaking idea. I’m downloading the Lite version now, and hopefully will like it enough to get the Full version too. Good call, Lory.
