This latest MacenWolf release by Serpens is one themed around unusual game titles related to Hitler.
There are 5 mapsets, most of which were created by Richard Peck, with one release by another modder called Ian Brown. They range in levels (As low as 1 map, to as high as 11 in one project), and have fun titles including Hitler Watches Law and Order and Hitler’s Labor Day Picnic.
The name may be familiar to Windows players already, as Escape from Totenhaus was one of the games that Laz ported to the DOS version of Wolfenstein 3D over 18 years ago. These newer versions differ though, in their more accurate emulation of the MacPlay Wolfenstein 3D experience.
A ModDB member by the name of Alstar05 has released a new project, simply titled Wolf 3D: Episode 1 Modified.
Exactly as it says on the box, this is a game that alters the first episode of Wolfenstein 3D with modified and new maps. The game appears to be intended to be played at higher difficulties, with next to no enemies and a lot of empty rooms on lower ones.
Wolf 3D: Episode 1 Modified comes bundled with all files, and due to the high number of objects in some maps, comes bundled with a copy of ECWolf to be playable. There’s also an option HD graphics pack included.
(Editor’s note: can someone explain the why behind the musical choice in map 3?)
The mod is designed from the ground up to appear to be a terribly amateur effort, complete with a “manual” with over-the-top mispellings. THW releases tend to have interesting things hidden behind the curtain though, whether they be interesting weaponry or cool exploratory goals.
The game comes with all the files necessary to play, but will require DosBox to do so.
