Yes! Highscore.com just added Wolfenstein 3-D to the database!

 

This is a one life run (all I had time for on my lunch break today) so expect a full run soon. I'm hoping to raise awareness here about this new title being added to the database. Bring on the competition - this is a classic!!!

 

Oh the game play starts around 7 or 8min with software settings shown the minute or two before that, and a brief greeting and explanation of the use of DOSBox emulator at the beginning.

 

Thanks for watching!

Final score at 43:40 when I lose the first life. You get a bonus life every 40k and you can have up to 9 lives on reserve so the potential to marathon this baby is very high.

 

At my rate on this run, it'll take over 3hr to get 500k. That's not too bad but I could be a little faster if I was able to get 100% on items and secret every level. Man I love this game.

Yeah. Together with Prince of Persia one of my earliest Soundblster moments.

I'm actually trawling through my old DOS game archives now looking for other games with a score. There really aren't that many.

RIP Soundblaster - I played this game called A-10 Tank Killer constantly and the sound of the plane's main gun firing will forever be tattooed on my brain.

UPDATE I just visited my parents for Easter and I was able to bilk them out of their "old" desktop PC. Two major perks - functioning soundblaster and WinXP OS which does a pretty darn good job of running Wolf3D and other DOS games. Woot!
