  • 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.

      i just wanted to point out, in case there was any more confusion, that this indeed does have all six episodes.

      i just beat episode one, and as soon as i did a menu opened up allowing me to choose which episode i wanted to go to next.

      i pushed the next episode and sure enough there was the familiar green slime covered walls and a zombie with a gun in it's chest shooting me.

      Also, when you click on "new game" it will allow you to change difficulty level, and then again choose your episode and then level of episode.

      If you wanted you could just play the bosses...

      ...

      Of course I have to wonder...

      after escaping castle Wolfenstien and rejoining the Allies, why in the world would they send BJ Blaskowitz back into enemy territory with only a handgun and 16 rounds?

      I mean at least give the man a machine gun or more rounds or something!

      I guess you could argue that in a time of war the odds of ammo just lying callously about are pretty good, but still...

      What if the nazi's were just uber organized? What if they didn't have munitions just lying about for the next person to just pick up?

      ...makes me wonder...

      Whilst playing I found and recovered a better weapon than the pistol. But, I cannot figure out how to use it. Also, can you save game?

      as soon as you get any new weapon, it should automatically replace the previous weapon...

      And the game auto-saves when you hit the home button.
