Wolfenstein 1D eschews regular dimensions

Wednesday, 26th January 2011 04:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier


Everyone too young to remember what a revolution Wolfenstein 3D was should probably check out this startling de-make, Wolfenstein 1D. Yes. One. Maybe the mind-boggling reduction of a fully realised game world to a single-pixel line will give you some idea of the amazement we felt at the time.

You’ll need to squint at the monitor to discern what’s going on in the game, but it’s fully playable. You can have a go yourself it here.

This is the second de-make to hit the headlines this week, with Halo 2600 firing hearts and loins in cartridge form. Wolfenstein itself has seen an unofficial remake as a custom LittleBigPlanet 2 level.

Thanks, Gamesradar.

    “Everyone too young…”

    Hey, I was there too! I remember robot Hitler. …and I remember things from long before that as well. There were games of the sort before Wolf 3D though, but sadly everyone seems to have forgotten them.

    It’s an interesting thing, really. For a while, everyone heralded Doom as heading up the 2.5D revolution. Then everyone remembered Wolf 3D and heralded that. But there are still yet others. Wolf 3D wasn’t the first, but rather one of many at the time.
