Wolfenstein 3D shoots onto web

Blast from the past

Wolfenstein 3D

Classic proto first-person shooter Wolfenstein 3D is now free to play, courtesy of developer Bethesda.

The game that paved the way for Doom was released by iD Software 20 years ago, and Bethesda has written it up in handy cross-platform browser form.

There's even an armour-clad Adolf H to dispatch if you get far enough.
