Wolfenstein 3D

Wolfenstein 3D is another classic. It was basically the first FPS game, and has since been ported to pretty much every platform in existence.

I’ve wasted many hours of my life playing this game, and to this day I still remember the layout and secret passages from all of the levels of the first episode.

Because the game is visually so striking compared to most other games of the time, I was expecting it to be difficult to get it to run in Aeon, but once I had the basics in place it turned out to be one of the easiest. Most of the early problems I ran into were from incorrect corner case behavior in some of the more complicated x86 instructions, but Wolfenstein 3D didn’t really do anything crazy at the machine code level. Maybe that’s due to it being largely written in portable C.

So having it work so well in Aeon was pretty exciting for me and all, but the best thing to come out of playing it again was that it gave me the idea to rip this:

BJ Blazkowicz

Just look at that and try to say it isn’t awesome. It’s B.J. Blazkowicz!
