This adaptation of the first-person shooter Wolfenstein 3D is not a straight port, but a remix with substantial changes as well as new additions.

While the basic gameplay of exploring levels, shooting enemies, collecting treasures, keys and power-ups remain the same, only half of the original game's 60 levels have been retained. Each of those 30 levels (grouped into six missions, with two levels being secret ones) is a simplified version of an original level. The end bosses for the missions are taken from both Wolfenstein 3D and its prequel, Spear of Destiny.

Other changes from the original include new power-ups: an ammo box (taken from Spear of Destiny) and backpack that increases the maximum amount of ammo that can be carried.

The original's weapons (knife, pistol, machine gun, chaingun) all return, but there are also two completely new tools of destruction: a flame thrower and a rocket launcher.

Wolf3D was ported to the Super Nintendo in 1994, but in a move that angered id Software, Nintendo of America had them censor the game beyond belief, including (but not limited to): changing the German Shepherds into mutant rats, changing all the dialogue into generic English yells, removal of all Nazi symbols like the swastikas and Hitler pictures, and blood removal. In retaliation, id handed the SNES Wolf3D engine over to a Christian game design company called Wisdom Tree, who created the only unlicensed game ever to appear on the SNES: Super Noah's Ark 3-D.
