First Impressions
ConceptProsCons
Content6 Chapters
GraphicsWalls move backwardsHaving random wall textures of brick, wood, and stone in a single level is odd
MovementMouse movement is extremely fast in comparison to keyboard Movement is really clunky especially with keyboard
Saving/LoadingWorks well (I use it every level) Makes the life system pointless, since dieing resets your weapons to 8 ammo and pistol, its better to just load
SecretsSecrets for ammo/weapons/health that help beat the level is nice Only One type of secret: Walls going backwards
EnemiesEnemies are polite enough to yell before shooting you
+4 enemy types
First chapter boss was very hard to beat till I found the secret.. which makes him extremely easy

It's just plain Wolfenstein 3D. Blast from the past.
Never gets old.

Tip: if you want a little bit smoother framerate, just press CTRL+F12 few times until you feel comfortable.
Too much? CTRL+F11. CPU cycles 6000 is enough. DOSBox things....

If someone not satisfied, just search for the other engines (NewWolf, WolfenDOOM EDGE, Wolf4SDL etc)
