    Maybe for those who are unable to play Wolf 3D, they could enjoy Super 3D Noah’s Ark! The total Wolf 3D conversion.. 😀

    Has anyone played it?

    I was a little addicted to retro computing youtube for a while, so this game definitely crossed my radar.

    If it was going for free or, like, $1 on gog I might give it a shot, but I suspect I would regret parting with $7.50 of my hard earned cash for it.

    This would be a good subtopic for the eventual podcast: games based on the WOLF3D engine. I’ve got the two “Blake stone” games in my GOG library but haven’t played them – are they worth a go? Maybe March will be a good excuse to get them running.

    Then of course there’s Rise of the Triad which was already extensively covered in 2021.

    Wikipedia lists some others too: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wolfenstein_3D_engine_games any of these worth a go?

    I had a lot of fun with the shareware episode of Blake Stone back in the day.
    I revisited it a couple of years ago and… hoo boy! It is way harder than I remember!
    I think it is a worthy member of the Wolf3D engine family though. It’s fairly slick and well put together. There’s some really cool enemies and weapons, and a few nice extra gameplay elements, such as automap and money, as well as ceiling and floor textures.
    One of the big things I remember is that they did not waste any space on the maps – every empty space was usually crammed with secret areas.

    Another game based on the engine was the notorious “depth dwellers”.
    Never played it, but I’ve definitely heard… things about it.

    Of course, the Wolf3D engine is actually an improved version of the Catacomb 3D engine, which itself is an improved version of the Hovertank 3D engine, so I guess those games deserve a mention as well.

    I’ve played Blake Stone recently using the BStone source port and it’s pretty neat! It’s got some nice features that didn’t appear in either Doom of Wolf3D like NPCs that could help you and vending machines to buy power ups from. It’s not perfect and coming out right before Doom didn’t help it, but I think it would be a fun game for the club
