Man kann es kaum anders sagen: Das Alter des jungen Ken Silverman, sein Potential und das seiner Engine. Die Spiele, die mittels seiner Engine noch entstanden und die nachträglich entstandene OpenGl-Version: Kens Labyrinth ist schlicht und ergreifend Kult. Spielerisch, visuell und auditiv heutzutage natürlich keine Offenbarung mehr, aber für die damalige Zeit als privates Projekt einfach ein Hammer.

Ken's Labyrinth is a first person shooter similiar to the Wolf3d engine. Both the game and code was created by Ken Silverman (The creator of the Duke3d Build Engine) when he was 16-17 years old. Ken's Labyrinth is pretty entertaining, though it does have bad graphics.

This DOS game was originally released by Epic Games in 1993. The author of the game (Ken Silverman) has decided to give away the game as freeware. Because of the game's old age, you may not manage to get any sound and/or some keyboard commands may not work. Nontheless, the game is a nice piece of game nostalgia. At the time the game was released our rating would probably be 8/10 but in the light of today's hightech games the rating is recuded to 5/10. The gameplay has 3 episodes each with an easy/hard option. Press ESC for the helpmenu. Ken's Labyrinth contains no real violence or weapons that would be inappropriate for kids. Some monsters may appear mildly scary for the very youngest.

Sin embargo, es una aventura realmente adictiva, de gran jugabilidad y que sin duda te hará recordar con una sonrisa nostálgica aquellos juegos de hace años que no contaban con los adelantos técnicos de hoy en día, pero que conseguían engancharte de verdad.

This is how story starts. Ken's Labyrinth is a three-episode fpp shooter, graphically and gameplay-wise very similar to Wolfenstein 3D and other id Software games from this time. It was coded by Ken Silverman (creator of Build engine, later used for Duke Nukem 3D) and released by Epic MegaGames in 1993 with first episode available as shareware. In 1999 Ken was granted permission to release game as freeware.
