Tietoja pelistä

It's World War II and you are B.J. Blazkowicz, the Allies' most valuable agent. In the midst of the German Blitzkrieg, the Spear that pierced the side of Christ is taken from Versailles by the Nazis and secured in the impregnable Castle Wolfenstein. According to legend, no man can be defeated when he has the Spear. Hitler believes himself to be invincible with the power of the Spear as his brutal army sweeps across Europe. Your mission is to infiltrate the heavily guarded Nazi stronghold and recapture the Spear from an already unbalanced Hitler. The loss of his most coveted weapon could push him over the edge. It could also get you ripped to pieces.

I Am Thy Labyrinth


They speak...
In the garden of the prophet
Divine madness...
The order of the cosmic immoral
For what is humanity
If not forlorn
And crawling to my hands
When the moment sings
For I have read the signs
And I have solved the riddle
Of eternal life
The Jinnah have spoken
For I have read the signs
And I have solved the riddle
Of eternal life...

The exciting sequel to the Childhood Favorite of mine; Wolfenstein 3D. Once you get this game, you'll also get the 2 Mission Packs: "Return to Danger & Ultimate Challenge".

Spear of Destiny is a sequel to FPS. A very close one. So close, that you could as well call it a stand-alone expansion pack. In nutshell, it only has new levels and new bosses, otherwise you are getting same Wolfenstein 3D experience. Steam also comes with two "lost episodes" or "mission packs". They weren't made by id software themselves, and are kinda... feel like unofficial mods that Publisher made official. So yes, the package of Spear of Destiny on Steam is quite complete.

Steam version of Spear of Destiny is quite true to original. Almost nothing was changed. Aside from in-game "Apogee" being changed into "Activision', even though by now it's outdated and should be "Bethesda", but no one cares anymore. It also completely removed help section out of game, most likely due to outdated ordering info. So no intro story to be found there.
It uses DosBox to make games run on modern PCs. And as usual, the configuration of DosBox is the one that will make the game lag heavily. But it's fixed easily. Just go to game's folder and edit conf file of game for DosBox to use OpenGl rendered. It will fix lags and allow you to make screens with Steam Overlay too.

When you launch the game, you are allowed to choose between original Spear and two mission pack. One should note that they all use same save slots. Yes, you can even load saves from another pack, and it kinda works, landing you in current's pack level in saved spot! Didn't check futher though.

Spear of Destiny is a pretty simple expansion pack. It doesn't add new enemies. It doesn't add new weapons. It's same old things as Wolfenstein 3D, even if still decently done. Instead, what it has is around 20 new levels, divided into 4 generic themes, like yellow dungeon and blue corridors of blue bricks in prison part. All while staying in a single castle, working floor after floor up, to the top, where Spear of Destiny is kept, that you must to retrive from hands of Nazis, storyline being prequel to Wolfenstein 3D.
At the end of each set of levels of single theme, that is around 4-5 levels per theme, you will face a boss, that are the only new enemies in this game. ...Which require absolutely same tactics of "pop out, shoot some before they shoot back, hide back, go to secret cache of supplies if things go bad", so they are still lame. And sure thing there are new decorative objects here and there, as well as new textures here and there. It also added a bunch of new music, some of which is actually quite great, "Evil Incarnate" is quite memoriable track, played on the final.
The only memoriable, new experience got to be the final. After defeating the boss on pre-last level, you will get a key to the room with spear inside it. Once you pick it up, you will hear a short fanfare that felt like it was interrupted at the end. Yet the game doesn't end here and you are free to move. And once you open door and come out of the room, you found out that you was sneakily transported into next, last level, a Doom-styled hell, where you have to defeat THE final boss.
Oh. And it also has a proper ending, with music, credits and nice artwork, like a proper videogame. Much better than usual id software's text "oh, you won. You are the best. Wow. You married president's girl. You are such baddass!!"

The 20 levels does provide a much more packed experience than dragged out Wolfenstein 3D with 6 episodes, so it's not so all that dull and may be more fun. But it doesn't have Hitler to kill, and the core gameplay is still aged, with hitscan enemies everywhere, making you use cover tactics and "spam first", so...

And then there are two additional mission packs. Those were made by different people, who tried to also mod the game and make it feel more different. But the only thing you could change in Wolf3D before Source Code release were sprites, sounds, textures and layouts of levels. So yes, nothing new, it just got a whole new skin. A blue-green one. And feels like a cartoon, a lot, which is kinda both feels good and bad.
It also has new bosses and a new bat enemy... Nah. Just kidding. Those are reskins.

And then there are levels themselves... They weren't designed all that good. Most often, it's designed to be as complex as possible. Mission pack 2 has either the levels that will abuse your brain and are chore to beat or the ones that can be quickly skipped through. Mission pack 3 is more of the middle between those two, being a bit better designed. New textures help to set more interesting themes to it, like submarine and research labolatories, so at least this is good and brings more variety. Until you get to explore the maze where the only wall texture is a blue cave one. Repeated over and over. Such joy.
And yes, they want levels to be so complex, that in these mission packs finding secret pushwalls is mandatory to beat the level. Get ready to hump every wall. I must say, that the first theme in Mission pack 2 was cleverly designed around this and I liked it, but I felt I needed to take a good break of simple action, but it just kept on frying up my brain with mazes, so whole experience is the one to avoid. There is a good protip: secret pushwalls are marked by having unique object placed nearby.
Memoriable positive experience? Final level of Mission Pack 3, where it sends into future. With UAC crates placed around.

So yes. Mission Packs 2 and 3 should be avoided by casuals. Only for fans who want their complex tiring mazes.

Original campaign is still not bad, but as said... core gameplay remains same as Wolf3D. It didn't age.

Spear of Destiny is one of the most challenging shooters I've ever had the pleasure (although sometimes the pleasure turned into despair and anger) of playing in my whole life.

It took me my sweet time, several years, to finish it. But I finally beat the whole episode today. 18 maps of pure awesomeness. The last map is one of the best maps ever to be a final map in any game. I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I saw it.

Now, this game is not for amateurs. If you beat the first Wolfenstein 3D game, and I mean all 6 episodes of it, in I'M DEATH INCARNATE, well, you're still gonna have quite the challenge when you play this one. Imagine the last map in episode 2, but 10x harder.

Any true Wolfenstein fan knows about this game, but if you've never heard of it and loved Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Wolfenstein 3D and are excited about The New Order, well, you should give this one a spin. Might be the little retro experience you were looking for. And, of course, it will keep you in your seat while you wait for The New Order to come out.

Spear of Destiny is another of id Software's amazing deliveries. A sequel to what is probably my favorite game of all time, Wolfenstein 3D.

The settings they chose for DOSBox don't appeal to me however. I am not keen on using filtered graphics. I like crisp pixels. If you would like to see what I mean there, is an easy way to set the graphics very crisp and original feeling, and while we are at it, we can also smooth out animation a lot:

1. Right-Click the game in Steam, and choose "Properties".
2. Click on the "Local Files" tab.
3. Click "Browse Local Files".
4. Double click the "base" directory.
5. Open "SOD.conf" with notepad.
6. Look for the "[sdl]" section.
7. Change "output=ddraw" to "output=overlay".
8. Scroll down to "[cpu]" section.
9. Change "cycles=auto" to "cycles=12000".

Save and exit notepad.
Run the game and enjoy.

This smooths out animation greatly, and provides original crisp feeling graphics. Some people prefer the filtered look, if that's you, just leave it as ddraw and only change the "cycles" option.

You could argue that this game is to Wolfenstein 3D what Doom 2 is to Ultimate Doom.
It is, but that's not saying much, since Wolfenstein 3D didn't offer much to add on to in the first place.
All the same problems are there, and the game is given a much shorter, higher intensity length with a better sense of context. It isn't especially bad, but, well, read my Wolfenstein 3D review to see my thoughts on this game.
All the same pros and cons are there.

Having beaten Wolf3d many times and with The New Order coming out, I figured I'd finally get around to playing The Spear of Destiny. Yes, this is a lot like Wolf3d but that's not really a bad thing. The levels seem a little more open and the bosses seem a little more difficult. Actually, the game in a whole is a lot more difficult than Wolf3d. And while it doesn't have MechaHitler (who happens to be one of my favorite video game bosses of all time) the end level is quite awesome both pre and post obtaining the spear. A must play for anyone who enjoyed Wolf3d.. I actually think I liked it more.

This game has the same weapons, same nazis and same gameplay so I recommend this to only the hardcore Wolfenstein fans. I like all Wolfenstein and this to me is a challange. There are so many nazis on the same rooms. Man, are they coming from the walls?

We all know Wolfenstein 3D was the best game ever, and of course, another one was made. However, this one was way more challenging and harder to get through than the first, and Spear of Destiny doesn't care if the game could be impossible. This is one of my favorite Id Software games, and who knew that Spear of Destiny could be better than Wolf 3D? Well, Doom II was better than Ultimate Doom, so I really am not surprised.

Play this with Newwolf if you can still find it; the 320x240 res is Extremely outdated. Newwolf brings the game to the 3d Rendered age of quake and OpenGL but retains everything that makes it great.

7.5/10

The prequel to Wolfenstein 3D, unlike Wolf3D with it's 6 episodes with 9 levels each SoD has a single "episode" consisting of 19 levels.

The enemies remain the same with the guards, SS soldiers, officers and mutants, only the bosses are new.

Weapons also are the same you used in the previous game ranging from the knife to the pistol to submachinegun and finally the chaingun, however since some levels can have large amounts of enemies you usually find yourself low if not out of ammo as you can only carry 99 bullets at a time.

As with Wolf3D the controls can be a bit finicky and the damage dealt by enemies is pretty random randing from tickling to dealing way over half of your hitpoints in damage so be prepared to save a lot.

Overall a rather enjoyable experience despite it's age

With bright blue guns, puke green ceilings, and mismatched wall textures as you round every corner, "Spear of Destiny" boasts perhaps the ugliest color scheme ever committed to video game.
