iD software released a port of the classic FPS ‘Escape from Castle Wolfenstein, the first of B.J Blazkowicz’s many adventures.
Just about everyone has played this classic game at some point or another and if you haven’t you should definitely check it out. I think this is my favourite port Wolfenstein; it definitely plays a lot smoother than the Xbox port included at the end of ‘Return to Castle Wolfenstein, which by the by, is another title you should look into playing.
The control format is a good implementation if the pseudo-joystick we’ve seen on other games and they have optional tilt controls as well. They’ve also added a feature that makes the game a lot easier. A Map!
The odd part about this release is that it’s been released both on the App Store and Cydia. Not the Cydia Store though, just the free Cydia. This means that on the App Store the game costs $4.99, but if you have a jailbroken iPhone you can get it for free. Gloriously free.
Both versions include all six original episodes and all 60 levels.
Well, now that I’ve knocked this out early in the day, I’m going to imflame my wrists by playing for the next 6 hours.
