No Comment 27 Views

Yesterday, I mentioned haw John Carmack had released an open-sourced port of Wolfenstein for Jailbroken iPhones, and that a version to purchase would be available soon.

I didn’t realize that soon meant tomarrow, but in this case it does. John has announced this afternoon, Wolfenstein 3D Classic is now available at the iPhone Store for $4.99.

John "the grandfather of first person shooter, recently said "Not very long ago, it was an open question if classic first person shooter play styles could be adapted to the touch and tilt controls of the iPhone and still remain fun, so I set out to find the answer with a small research project based on our classic Wolfenstein 3D game.  It quickly became apparent that it could work out very well indeed, and it was a lot of fun to grow the project from a little experiment into a full-fledged product.  To me, the iPhone is the most exciting new platform in ages, and I am very much looking forward to bringing our entire historic series of titles over, as well as brand new work.”

He has also announced that other classic properties of id Software will also be ported to the iPhone, such as Doom and Quake. More information on these titles will be upcoming.
