I suggest to MyAbandonware to put GAME VERSION too.
As I know there are different versions of Wolf3D, 1.0 1.1 1.2 and the final 1.4
Maybe that's why some people can't see some secrets stored in their mind.

I remember playing this as a kid in 1997. It was the first game i ever played, then later Doom. It brings back the memories

The secret level for episode 1 is missing. You go into the secret exit on E1M1 and it takes you straight to E1M2 instead of E1M10 (the secret level). Apparently, who ever uploaded this one somehow left out the E1M10 file or somthing.

For those having issues with Sound on Wolf3D
Load Wolf3D into D-Fend Reloaded
Right-click on Wolfenstein 3D
click on Edit
click on Sound
click checkbox that says "Activate sound"

So much fun. Don't even try to deny it. Not as good as Doom or Quake but still... Dayum

The secret elevator to level 10 in episode one isn't working on mine. I checked the other secrets though and I can jump to level 10 in episode 2. Its just that purple walled one that isn't working

This available for purchase on steam and is therefore NOT abandonware!

5/5 stars, except for ONE THING. Apparently I have 64bit windows, i'm disappointed, but I love the game, I have it on my phone, wanting it on my computer. :-)

When I learn how to put more old games on D-Fend Reloaded, this is going on. I hope I can get it to run with a mouse as it did on DOS 6.2. Old memory: my daughter was in middle school and told me of a dream she had. Nazis were playing Cosmo on our computer. Games are addictive; even old games did this. Everything does. Solitaire with playing cards intruded on my dreams before computers. Tricky (snowboarding)...I had to give it up. But I have to go back again. Everyone does nostalgia. DOS 6.2, WIN 3.1, 486DX2...I still have the old one and should pull it out.

EL MEJOR JUEGO DE LA HISTORIA. LA PRIMERA VEZ QUE JUGUE FUE CON MI CUÑAO , EL H, VENIA EN UNA REVISTA, PCMANIA , Y CREIAMOS QUE ERA UN JUEGO DE AVIONES, EN EL 92 XD

I can play the game, but there is no sound? Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance.
indstr 2014-02-11 0 point
Aha yes... Everyone has memories of this one. For some reason Wolf3d gave me motion sickness though, which Doom and newer games never did. So I wasn't a huge fan of Wolf3d even though it was revolutionary.

Awesome game. This is from the era of shoots before they tried to pile advanced mechanics and a "deep" story line. I just love running around and shooting the crap out of generic enemies!

Dude, if theirs NO-ONE TO CLAIM THE COPYRIGHT the copyright no longer is in use. Who's gonna go to court to say otherwise?

@RobertATfm: You talk shit. Why buy of you can download? I dont care for the big players, I care for me!

Shut up Rob. People have their own choices. Bragging about how rich you are to buy the game doesn't help those who aren't. Stop being all Mr. Right. Dick.
YeahNanCat 2013-09-30 0 point
NO! NO! NO!
Actually Valve "stole" Wolfenstein 3d. 'Cause it is developed by ID Softvare. NOT Valve.
Looks like Valve just added that shield or skin that let this game play on newer op systems.
So please stop with this purchasethisgamebecausethisisillagal sanctimonius shit.
I bet you have at least one commercial software on your machine you didnot pay for.....
RobertATfm 2013-09-28 0 point
@neologo: Installing this game is easy, just go to Steam and purchase a legal copy (they cost only about the price of a cappucino) and you will be able to install and run it on any system, even Windows 8.
RobertATfm 2013-09-28 0 point
This game shouldn't be on this site; it isn't "abandonware", it is still available both from the id Software site and from Steam. This download is thus not an "abandonware" download (even those are technically illegal, since copyright continues to exist even if there's nobody to claim it), but a full-on pirate download.

The pac man level is Episode 3, level 10. Just work your way there or cheat.
Pete G 2013-08-12 0 point
I cant figure out how to get the sound to work, I'm using the D-Fend Reloaded Emulator.
FourTwentyNoscope 2013-07-25 0 point
I have to disagree with you guys, I love Steam. It's a single place where you can conveniently buy games, DLC and in-game stuff. Be grateful to Gabe Newell, he's the one that ported Doom to Windows in the first place.
Licurg 2013-06-30 0 point
@FistMarine: I agree about Steam(hate it, don't use it) but GOG is not the same, they make the games work out of the box, which is important for people with lower tech skills, and they sell their games without shitty DRM. So buying old games from GOG does actually make sense.
LongTooth 2013-06-29 0 point
To play this on a Win7 machine first install Dfend Reloaded. Then download the wolfenstein-3d zip file from here.
Next run Dfend Reloaded and select File - import - import archive file..
Then navigate to where you put the wolfenstein-3d zip file, select it and click open. Dfend will do the rest.
Now you will see Wolfenstein 3D listed in the Dfend Reloaded window, simply double click on it and you play it full screen.
I haven't managed to get the sound working yet.
MsHaruko 2013-06-29 0 point
ah yes good ol'Wolfenstein. I remember this. This was my first fps growing lol. Just get DOSBox and run it. Adjust your sound options. Believe default is off except for the music.
FistMarine 2013-06-20 0 point
@grump yeah but who cares? Most of the old games can be bought ONLY on steam, which sucks because I hate steam, why waste money on digital downloads (steam, GOG, etc) when you can download this game for free from this place? I just can't understand this logic!
Anyway if you want to BUY the game in its original form, what about eBay or Amazon? These places are a hundred times better than shitty steam store! I can never understand why everyone loves steam and wastes money on buying games online. If you want to buy a game BADLY, buy from eBay or Amazon!
FistMarine 2013-06-20 0 point
If you guys want to play Wolfenstein 3D & Spear of Destiny full, free & legal on Doom engine, you can download Wolfenstein 3D TC from ZDoom forums! It has better controls as well. Have fun!

This Game Was Ment For DOS, So Even If Youre Hardware Is Fine You Need A DOS Emu, To Simulate DOS Drivers
Mary 2013-06-06 0 point
The sound won't work for me. I changed the sound options to what I wanted and turned the sound on, but I don't hear anything. Please help.

9/10. I love this game. I was born (quite literally) just after all these good games were releases, now i can play them. Awesome.
pete 2013-04-02 0 point
if you have problems running these games try down load D-FEND Reloaded brill front end and joy to key i found best to work pad or stick games.
kermur 2013-03-31 0 point
pft: do some research, and figure it out. Have you tried DosBOX? Back when these games were current, people had to be savvy to use computers. Now any bum can fire up their pre-loaded systems. If you do the research and educate yourself, you'll find it can be fun- and you'll stop being an ignorant whiner.

Leitbild 2013-02-13 0 point
Hmm... I still can't get warm with that game...
I don't know why, all people told me how great it is (and other overhailed fanboy stuff), but after playing other, more improved games of those days like Doom or Heretic, it was a real step back while testing it the very first time... And never played it again...
Sounds sad, but that's life... ;)
BTW, as a guy from germany I only can positively mention the fun factor for ourselves related to the goodminded, but totally failed tries by the guys at id Software to speak german phrases for the soldiers!
Oh my god... I was more lying and laughing under the table than enjoying the game itself! :D
Bringemon 2013-01-31 0 point
Is this the full version?
Does it include the other levels after stage 1-9?

Makes me think of of the Nazi's now occupied in New mexico, They are bragging that they are there to shoot and arrest us if martial law happens.

Beautiful game. I never get tired playing the game. The many episodes and multiple levels lends credence to the beauty. I applaud the creators for a job well done.
Goxon 2012-10-20 0 point
I have always loved this game and I never seem tired playing it. The several episodes with different levels lends credence to its perfectness. Very Fine game. I give kudos to the creators.

This game is a classic. The inspiration to 3d fps as we know it, it still far outshines many recent games of the genre.

dragonraid 2011-10-03 5 points
I remember when I first loaded this up on my Wang 286 machine. I didn't know what to expect. Needless to say, I was awestruck! I still have fun playing it. Enjoyed playing around with the mapedit and making my own levels. Lots of hours put into this gem! One of the most solid of all the abandonware games!
