The 1st-person shooter that started it all. As the Allies hero, B.J. Blazkowicz, you run around 3D mazes and blast away Nazis until you can find your way out of their fortresses, prisons, and secret laboratories. It is a remake of the original top-down game Castle Wolfenstein.
Maybe it was the fact that people got to blow away Nazis. Maybe it was the sheer challenge of it all. For whatever reason, Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny, pioneered the first-person shooter genre and brought its legendary creators, id Software, worldwide notoriety and numerous awards. In fact, The Computer Gaming World Hall of Fame recognized Wolfenstein 3D as helping to shape the overall direction of the computer gaming industry.
You stand over Schabbs' fat, evil, swollen putrid body, glad your mission is finally over. All his journals and equipment will be destroyed. Humanity is safe from his hordes of hideous mutants. Yet the Nazi atrocities continue: thousands march into death camps even as the Nazi war machine falls to its knees. There is only one way to stop the madness. . . . Hitler hides in his titanic bunker as the Third Reich crumbles around him. It is your job to assassinate him, ending his mad reign. You find he has escaped to the Reichstag, and there you must confront him. As the story goes, you must invade Hitler's bunker, and kill him.
