indstr added this comment :

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.

Is it the full version or the shareware version?

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!


Gip-Gip added this comment :

Dos Box fixes everything.


jimmywhat added this comment :

Use Dosbox to play on Windows 8 or any 64 bit Os.


aeiou added this comment :

and for 64 bits?


ThatGuy added this comment :

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?


BritBrat added this comment :

Classic. Not so easy to play on a touchpad though!


T_T added this comment :

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


Flippers added this comment :

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 added this comment :


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 added this comment :

@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 added this comment :

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.


Royzourboy added this comment :

The pac man level is Episode 3, level 10. Just work your way there or cheat.


neologo added this comment :

how do i install?


Generals added this comment :

Love it, how to get to pac-man??


Pete G added this comment :

I cant figure out how to get the sound to work, I'm using the D-Fend Reloaded Emulator.


mavis9nixon added this comment :

how do you get to the pacman level it shows in the snapshots


Jimbo added this comment :

Epic back then


kavi added this comment :

super game

FourTwentyNoscope added this comment :

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.


DrunkenBastard added this comment :

Thank you.


Licurg added this comment :

@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 added this comment :

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 added this comment :

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 added this comment :

@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 added this comment :

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!


grump added this comment :

thats not abandonware

thats warez


Katarn X added this comment :

This Game Was Ment For DOS, So Even If Youre Hardware Is Fine You Need A DOS Emu, To Simulate DOS Drivers


Revenge of the bean added this comment :

Don't remember pack-ghosts..

Mary added this comment :

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.


john added this comment :

2pringles added this comment :

i love how the germans censored the game and turned the nazi's into monsters and the- Hitler, into a robot xD


ToBeAdvised added this comment :

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.

Hey i found a demon or Archvile from the side of Wolfenstein



pete added this comment :

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 added this comment :

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.


pft added this comment :

every game i have downloaded off this site have "not worked with my version of 7"

Jeorge added this comment :

This is the best game eva


Leitbild added this comment :

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!
'Mein Leben!!!'
Oh my god... I was more lying and laughing under the table than enjoying the game itself! :D

Wow added this comment :

BJ added this comment :

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.

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.

dragonraid added this comment :

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!
