Have you ever wondered where first-person shooters originated from when playing today’s top titles like Quake and Counter Strike? The game that kickstarted the genre was Id’s Wolfenstein 3D. If you’ve never played this game it might be worth taking a trip down gaming’s memory lane to discover one monumental game.

The year is 1943. You are William "B.J." Blazkowicz, the Allies' bad boy of espionage and a terminal action seeker on a reconnaissance mission of extreme importance. Your mission is to infiltrate the Nazi fortress and find the plans for Operation Eisenfaust, the Nazi's blueprint for building the perfect army. Captured in the attempt, you're taken to their prison where you await execution. However, you know where the plans are kept, and the Allies will face a great defeat if you don't escape the risk and horrors of the prison known as Wollfenstein.

Playing as an escaped prisoner in a Nazi war prison, the player moves smoothly through a 3D world full of Nazi guards, snarling canines, and rooms packed with Nazi treasure. With 60 action-packed levels full of secret passages and hidden rooms, Wolfenstein 3D for Game Boy Advance will appeal to audiences from the novice to the experienced.

Wolfenstein 3D is a highly playable and addictive title, and carries an 18 rating as an indication of the violent content within. Pocket shoot-em-ups don’t come much better than this.
