Description of Wolfenstein 3D

As the real first person shooter on pc, Wolfenstein 3D is still very fun and inspired many games. You play as an american soldier captured by the nazis and you blast your way to the exit of every level.

You will be facing dogs, soldiers, mutants, ZOMBIES and even the fuhrer !

Can be bought online at 3D Realms.

First FPS I ever bought, back in the day on my AT....we spend hours and hours together...! A must have oldie :)

A very good game! Wasn't bored me, or even a great bore, just awesomeness! Nothing to say more.

i remember playing this as a kid, Really superb game... i love this game soooooooooooooooooooooooo..much

Aquarius 2014-12-10 -3 points

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.

VIC 2014-11-24 -5 points

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

CIBLUE 2014-11-22 -5 points

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.

nka 2014-11-21 -2 points

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"

Enjoy :-)

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!

Zimminger 2014-05-14 0 point

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.

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.

YeahNanCat 2013-09-30 1 point


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 -1 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 -1 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.

Royzourboy 2013-09-27 0 point

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

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 2013-07-15 0 point

Thank you.

Licurg 2013-06-30 -1 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 1 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 1 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!

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 -1 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!
'Mein Leben!!!'
Oh my god... I was more lying and laughing under the table than enjoying the game itself! :D
