Wolfenstein Clones

So as I'm sure you've all seen today there is a FPS engine free for download:

So if you were going to make an FPS what would you make?

I never thought about that, someone will edit the game and resell it most probably but it's a rather old fps engine.

I meant that it would probably be hard to use 3d models as enemies in that engine. The graphics in Wolfenstein doesn't look very good compared to other iPhone games

You know I think starting out with an engine is better than starting from scratch. Maybe you have less control but why Reinvent the wheel in most parts of game development. I would be kin of mad though if people were to do very similar wolfienstein like games with the same plot and all.

I worked on a FPS (DMD) using Unity3D Engine IPhone Edition (shamless plug). Its not the wolfienstein engine, but it is a 3D engine Should be out soon, check sig!

He means a modified version of the DOS Wolf3D engine, not of the iPhone one. Rise Of The Triad came out in 1994
