The id Software site has been updated with a new page pimping Wolfenstein 3d for the iPhone. The AppStore link doesn't work yet so no idea on price or anything, but while you're waiting you can read what Carmack has to say about the redevelopment of this classic game on a new platform, and if you're really motivated, you can download the source code.

Am I the only person that sees "Carmack" and feels it should always be prefaced with "The" ?? :)

Ok I just can't get anymore work done because I'm always playing this game. Controls are great and the game provides a few different ways to control it - definitely the best FPS I've played on the iPhone. I think the controls work so well because it's such a limited movement - no y axis, no jumping. One bug that I think is happening (need to double check it's not just my imagination) is that when you leave a game and then resume it later, already-collected treasure seems to re-spawn. Another huge bug (or was this the same in the original too??) - you can't change weapons, meaning you always use the more powerful weapon, which can put a strain on your ammo reserves when you get the chain gun.

Gripes: doesn't seem possible to save games, so you can only ever have one continuous game, or start from the begining each time. Also, as much as I love the original soundtrack, it'd be great to be able to turn music off so I could listen to my mp3's, but I think that would mean also losing sound for the game. I'm pretty sure the ability to playback mp3's in-game will be made available for developers with the iPhone 3.0 release.

mobile phone games are gay and boring.

If there's one game that will change your mind about this, it's probably going to be Wolfenstein. Whether you're a fan of the original, or you've never heard of it, the game is extremely enjoyable. Definitely worth the $6 (even though that seems a bit steep considering it only took Carmack 4 days), but if you can hold out for a couple of weeks, I wouldn't be surprised if the price drops.
