Wolfenstein RPG released for iPhone

Wolfenstein RPG on the iPhone has improved graphics and a bunch of new features over the original.

After a long and much-delayed wait since the original leak, Electronic Arts has finally put Wolfenstein RPG back in the iPhone App Store.

Priced at $4.99 / £2.99 for the moment, Wolfenstein RPG is a overhauled port of the original J2ME game for mobile phones, boasting improved graphics, fully 3D levels and a bunch of little minigames spread out over the included nine levels.

The development of Wolfenstein RPG has been a long and difficult task it seems, involving id Software, Firemint Software and Electronic Arts and many months of development. Finally though, it's arrived after being delayed to help distance it from id Software's Wolfenstein Classic.

Anyone expecting the two games to be similar though will be sorely disappointed - while Wolfenstein Classic is a fast-paced retro FPS, Wolfenstein RPG is a turn-based action RPG that sees you exploring Castle Wolfenstein square by square. It's much like other id Software casual RPGs, Doom RPG and Orcs 'n' Elves.

The game includes nine levels and 32 different enemies to conquer, with an estimated 8+ hours of gameplay for most users according to EA. Initial impressions of the game seem to be pretty good too, though we haven't yet tried it ourselves.

Have you given it a go yet? Let us know what you think in the forums, or instead tell us what you think of the iPhone as a games platform and how it differs to conventional mobile phones.

Have got the wolf 3d on my iphone already and its actually great with the touch screen. May have to give this one a try, but I've never been a great fan of turn-based RPG's.
