Maybe it was the fact that people got to blow away Nazis. Maybe it was the
sheer challenge of it all. For whatever reason, Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of
Destiny, pioneered the first-person shooter genre and brought its legendary
creators, id Software, worldwide notoriety and numerous awards. In fact, The
Computer Gaming World Hall of Fame recognized Wolfenstein 3D as helping to
shape the overall direction of the computer gaming industry.
Wolf4SDL is an open-source port of id Software's classic first-person shooter
Wolfenstein 3D to the cross-platform multimedia library "Simple DirectMedia
Layer (SDL)" (http://www.libsdl.org). It is meant to keep the original feel
while taking advantage of some improvements.
