    Wolf 3D Classic Has Been Updated On iPhone

    Post by Per-Scan on Mon Aug 08, 2011 9:21 am

    I'm not sure if anyone here will care too much but there has been an update to the iPhone version of Wolf3D. The changes include new menus which are a lot slicker and Retina support for shiney new iPhone4's. Here's the link with a little more info:

    I really like it on the iPhone. The game translates well and I actually feel it's a better fit than most other FPS's on the platform.

    Also, the source code is available and extra maps can be downloaded. Smile

    PS: I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this but there isn't really a general W3D section and the 2 news sections only seem to pertain to actual site news or news already mentioned at the Dome... Smile

    Well, with the massive response this thread has had it would seem nobody gives a toss about the iPhone port! Razz

    Anyway, a further update was released yesterday. It now stands at version 2.1. The controls have been tweaked and the menus have been further refined. I'm hoping for the source code to be released soon. I'd love to see this version ported back to the PC... Smile

    Well, not all people here have iphones, you know.

    I didn't like this version - the controls were very uncomfortable. I didn't feel I'm in control.

    Hope they did improve it since Smile

    The controls do take getting used to but they've definitely improved. Wolf definitely plays better than Doom on the iPhone though both games do suffer from the lack of 'real' controls. I'm not sure why John Carmack likes the iPhone so much TBH. Still, it's good to play Wolfy on the move on my phone... I used to have to take the GBA version on the road - now that's a bad port! Smile

    Has anyone played it on Android? I'd be interested in finding out about the homebrew version on that platform.

    With all my love to Wolf3D - I prefer more iphone-fit, casual gaming on iphone.

    I have both Wolf 3d and Sod for the Android. I've played it a bit on my Samsung Galaxy S II and it's not too bad. I don't think the Android release is an official id port though, it's listed under someone else's name but at least it's there.

    The controls are hard to get used to also but it's ok once you get the hang of it. Not sure if Android is getting the update but no sign of it yet. Androif versions usually do get updated later than ios though, as a general rule.
