    Many players have wondered how Apogee would follow the success of Wolfenstein 3D. The answer is "Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold"! Wolf3D took you into the past; thrust into a world at war.

    "The first-person viewpoint and smooth movement will have you peering sideways into the monitor' to see if there's another monster around the corner." -- PC Magazine
