For over 11 years, Wolf4SDL has been the definitive source port for the classic Wolfenstein 3D experience, and has even served as a base for other popular source ports including MacenWolf and ECWolf!

Wolf4SDL retains much of the original gameplay and style of Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny, while fixing many issues and being able to run on modern systems without the need for DOS emulation.

Originally developed by Ripper, several talented community members have refined and improved the engine over time.

This version has been supplemented by the current version of Wolf4DL which utilizes SDL2. However, for historic preservation this version utilizing SDL1 is still listed.
