Wolfenstein 3D is widely known as the very first First Person Shooter that changed gaming forever. One of the most popular shareware games ever for 3 straight years in a row, Wolfenstein 3D puts you in the pants of BJ Blackowicz, an american prisoner of war in a Nazi dungeon where you fight off guards, SS, dogs, zombies, and more assorted nazis! It is a gem every FPS player should have in their games collection!

4. New game modes
In addition to co-op classic Wolfenstein 3D gameplay, Splitwolf brings 9 new game modes:

Instagib
You have only one life, but your weapons only take one shot to kill. Watch out, because so do the enemy's weapons!

Defuse the bomb
A bomb is spawned somewhere in the level, players must find and defuse it before time runs out, only then will the elevator unlock!

Carry the Flag
One player must carry the flag to the end of the level before the time runs out. You can't shoot when you have the flag, but you can impale Nazis with it or pass it to your friend with the use key!

5

Vampire
Drink the blood of your enemies to survive! Spawn with all weapons and infinite ammo and try to finish the level before your blood bar drains.

Harvester
Harvester pillars are placed randomly around the level, and after each kill, a skull is spawned on the pillars. You must find a pillar and collect the skull before the countdown ends to stay alive!
Mutant BJ All of your enemies are zombie BJs with random weapons!

Rampage
Put your dukes up and knock your enemies out with fists of fury! Keep your adrenaline up to instagib enemies with one punch.

6

Zombie
Nazi zombies are attacking! Kill them by ganging up on them with shots from multiple players, otherwise they reanimate!

Zombie Harvester
Just like harvester, but with Nazi zombies that reanimate for an added challenge.

5. New weapons
Splitwolf brings the pain with an armored 2 player vehicle (one driver to run nazis over, and one gunner) equipped with a mounted gatling gun!
