  • 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.

      If there are any mobciix.db or mobclix.db files in place, just delete them.

      Then try running it again and let me know if it works.

      The bug seems to have something to do with the Documents directory being shared by all apps on jailbroken devices, instead of individual Document directorys in the AppStore sandbox. It may have to do with the SQL Lite library as well. Still determining why.

      If you are one of the handful of people who it crashes on and you can't wait, the AppStore version will work fine for you.

      This worked for me. Thanks!

      Thanks Zodttd, you're a star!

      For reference, I only changed the Documents folder permissions. There was indeed a file mobclix.db in it but the game worked without me deleting it. Let me know if you require further info.

      It's Zodttd's repo. It's a standard repo installed with Cydia...

      For those of you that can't find it in Cydia just do a search for "wolf" and it will be the only app that shows. The actual name of it on Cydia is "idSoftware Wolf3D".
      This ia a great game. I've been playing it for the last 4 hours. It sure brings back memories.

      I was having problems with this game crashing also until I uninstalled the Cydia version and installed this ipa . . .

      **EDIT CPJR - We dont allow linking to IPA's**

      I can play all six episodes also from the cydia version
