To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Wolfenstein 3D, Bethesda Software on Wednesday released a free to play, in-browser version of this iconic game to the masses.
Created by "id Software" and published by "Apogee Software", Wolfenstein 3D triggered the shift away from side-scrolling shooters and towards first-person shooters. It is regarded as the first game to provide a "3D" view of the world, with 2D sprites that were mapped from eight perspectives, to produce the illusion of a 3D object.
In Wolfenstein 3D, the player assumes the role of an American soldier of Polish descent, named William "B.J." Blazkowicz, who was trapped in a Nazi castle and forced to fight his way out. Along the way, he had to overpower an army of German troops, attack dogs, and even Adolf Hitler himself wearing a mechanical battle-suit and carrying four mini-guns !

The browser version of the game is available free to play at the Bethesda site and supports most modern browsers. This version of Wolfenstein 3D is not just a demo of the game; It is the entire game, from beginning to end.
Bethesda Software has also announced that for a limited time, the iOS version of Wolfenstein 3D can be downloaded for free to commemorate the anniversary.
