Wolfenstein 3D is 20 years old!

Wolfenstein 3D one of the 1st first-person shooters turns 20 years old.

To celebrate, the birthday of the classic game id’s John Carmack has recorded a director’s commentary for the game.

In this video Podcast he discusses Castle Wolfenstein 3D’s development while playing the original DOS version.

But that’s not all, to mark this occasion id Software have a free-to-play browser-based version of Castle Wolfenstein 3D, available to play at

Wolfenstein 3D first released in 1992, saw the player, a captured American spy,fighting against a horde of WWII-era Nazis within Castle Wolfenstein.

It is one of the game’s that kick started and made popular first person shooters.

The game has appeared in many different platforms ranging from DOS,Snes,Jaguar and even on the 360 and IOS

Many of you will have played the original DOS version in the early 90’s but my 1st memory of this game was on the Super Nintendo, what I didn’t know back then that the game was heavily censored any reference to Nazis and also changed the dogs in the games to giant rats, because back then Nintendo didn’t allow the killing of dog( but hey Mario kills turtles?) and all sight of the red claret had to be changed into green slime…and the Nazis weren’t human(of course not)they were actually aliens that looked a little like Nazis.

But hey enough of my memories of this game, why not check out the John Carmack Podcast below an why not play the free brower game

      I actually didnt mind the new wolfenstien as it felt like a decent first person shooter but what i loved the most was the final boss it was epic and not over in 5 mins like usual bosses in fps games today
