  • Wolfenstein 3D $5 on App Store $0 on Cydia. Exact Same Game. Legal.


    ID Software released the ever popular Wolfenstein 3D Classic for iPhone on the App Store on the 23rd of March for the price tag of $5. Now just two short days later Zodttd has released the exact same game on Cydia for $0. Yes when I say exact same game I really mean it is the SAME game.

    The game is published by ID Software under a General Public License (GPL). If you check out the ID Software's Wolfenstein site you can grab the source for download in the bottom right corner. Zodttd simply downloaded the source, compiled, and published to Cydia.

    Free on Cydia vs. $5 of the AppStore. What are YOU going to choose?

    /Win Jailbreaking

    EDIT: McCarron lets us know "they are not the same game, because the version that was released via Source Code is not the full game and only includes the first Shareware episode. The one on the AppStore has all 6 six episodes."

    EDIT 2: But it is still many missions of fun for free.


    EDIT 3 (CPJR): Seems zodttd pulled it from the Public Repo and moved it to his Beta Repo. Access to this repo can be had with a donation. Dont be mad, bandwidth was eating him alive.

      And they are going to look at you all wide eyed and say "Dad, this game is such a POS, Seriously dad, the game is CRAP! Not only do you have to use your hands to play, but when you shoot people, you use BULLETS?! What is that? I mean cmon, BULLETS?!? That is so 20th century... And the Graphics suck too!"

      Now all we need is someone to port over leisure suit larry, space quest and kings quest!

      (technically speaking, they are could be considered obsolete, and under DRM can be legally ported)

      WOW!

      That is so much fun! Much easier then I remember it too!

      (although I don't remember bullet's going plink when you hit the doors!)

      All the secret passages are right were they are supposed to be, all the dogs die in wonderful 8 bit glory!

      I didn't get to "GUTENTAGH!" yet (sorry my German is non existent), but I can only assume it will be great.

      Looking back on this I gotta wonder...

      Why am I collecting grails and crosses?

      I mean I know why they are there, but why am I collecting them?

      So what. Have you not seen ports of other game on the app store? There is this thing called "enhancements". Bring it up to date would be much better and appealing to the eye. Just like they did with Oregon Trail. I played that game all the time in class when I was a kid. Look at the remakes of it now. There is one on the app store.

      Second, you do not even have to shot at the enemy to actually kill them. That is pretty lame. The game sucks. If you like it then check out pong. Should be right up your ally and player skill.

      0/10 for not getting my point the first time.

      Just because you don't like it doesn't mean we don't.
      Go play one of your new fangled games and leave us to ones we can actually play!






      And like I say - the graphics are much improved on the original!

      Not really since Carmac wanted this to happen. He even ASKED for it to happen. He's a pretty awesome game and an even better developer who understands a lot of things big companies fail to see when it comes to gaming/modding communities.

      Ok, this is noit showing up for me in Cydia. I searched, looked in games, went to sources to view all packages from ZodTTD's source and it's not there. I couldn't find a way to refresh the source. I power cycled the phone. I even put in the installer repo address out of desperation. It's not showing up at all. I'm on firmware 2.2.1 ANybody have another idea to get this installed? **EDIT CPJR - Nice try, asking for it isnt allowed either**
