Wolfenstein 3D: From guns to swords


    Fans are still keeping Wolfenstein 3D alive years after it single handedly created the FPS genre. Fellow Siliconera writer, Gnome, posted over on his site a link to a couple of fan developed mods for the game. Most of them are the standard enemy swaps with new layouts and a tweaked weapon except for medEvil, which changes Wolf 3D into a first person fantasy game. Sure there are magical weapons that shoot glowing orbs like Hexen, but you’ve got a sword for up close combat. It’s sort of like Deep Labyrinth, minus the leveling up and random dungeons. Kudos to the developers for teaching an old wolf new tricks and their project sits alongside Super Noah’s Ark 3D as one of the most creative ways transformations of Wolfenstein 3D.
