  • 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.

      As per the GPL I have also released the source code at: zodttd's wolf3d at master - GitHub

      More details within Cydia where it is listed as "idSoftware Wolf3D" in the Games section.

      Many thanks to id Software for licensing this software source under the GPL which allows for this Cydia release.

      This is really good news! I have already downloaded the game from Cydia (Thanks Zodttd!!!) but it crashes immediately after boot. Removed some old games I had to free up some memory, restarted, respringed but no change. I'll see what else I can remove.

      Enjoy all!

      I chose the App Store version because Carcmac is awesome and is one of the few big developers out there who have faith on the iPhone as a real gaming machine.

      I agree. I downloaded the Cydia version but will most likely get the App Store version as well.

      That changes everything. Ill have to grab the appstore version later.

      Look at that Cydia is now advertising for appstore and apple wants to get rid of this its a shame.

      the cydia version loads to the initial screen and then exits.
      the App Store version ran right away with no issues.

      They should pay me to install this POS. Seriously the game is crap. You don't even have to aim at the people to kill them. Graphics suck too.
