Bethesda Softworks has marked the 20th anniversary celebration of classic first-person shooter (FPS) game Wolfenstein 3D with a slashed off price on the iOS app and the release of a free web browser version.
The games developer said the new web browser version is a functional full release of the original, where it will allow gamers to portray an American soldier that seeks to run away from the Nazi Castle Wolfenstein in World War II.
In addition, Bethesda Softworks also cut down the price of the simpler, minimal iOS verion of Wolfenstein 3D, which is now available for free on iTunes for a limited time only. The mobile version support Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Wolfenstein 3D, originally created by John Carmack at id Software through publisher Apogee Software in 1992 as free shareware, is widely recognized as the forebear of most modern FPS game titles. Carmack collaborated with John Romero to design and develop Doom FPS, which saw the iconic title released a year after in 1993.
