It’s really interesting but I wouldn’t say better. I just recorded a Let’s Play of it where I played it through the Macenwolf port

Like TigerQuoll said, the assets are high-res and there’s two new weapons (Flamethrower, Rocket Launcher) which add a little variety, even if they’re weirdly designed. It’s also a little confusing that the demo version is called First Encounter, the retail release is called Second Encounter, and the actual port of the original game is called the Third Encounter. The original commercial release of the game is the levels from the SNES release, and then due to demand they eventually brought over the levels from the original game. Another issue is that the enemies are always forward facing, so you never really see them patrolling or looking in other directions.

I definitely prefer the original version but the Mac version isn’t bad and I’d recommend it if you’ve played Wolf3D a ton of times and want a new take on it.
