This page is for the Jaguar game, for other platforms see Wolfenstein 3D.

The Jaguar version of Wolfenstein 3D is closer to the Macintosh port than the original DOS version. The graphics are a higher resolution and the sound is higher fidelity. However, the cost of these increases meant smaller maps, fewer levels, and enemy sprites that can't rotate. As with the original, you play a WWII POW trying to defeat a bunch of Nazis. You blast away your enemies in a first-person perspective; collect treasure, ammo, health; find secret doors. At the end of each major section is a big bad boss for you to fight.

If you've played the Jaguar version, you'll notice it has an uncanny resemblance to Doom (the weapons mostly). This was because the team at id Software wanted to see if they could make a Jaguar port of Doom. They did end up releasing a Jaguar port of Doom except that there was no in-game music.

Music

The music in the Jaguar port was taken from the original Wolfenstein 3D (DOS) and Spear of Destiny (DOS). However, only 15 of the original 37 tracks were used. Thankfully, the music was rearranged and higher quality instrument synthesizers were used. This gives the music a much richer timbre. Unfortunately, this recording was made from the game using a less-than-perfect emulator, so the music is very choppy.

Bobby Prince composed the music in Sequencer Plus Gold.

(Info)


The soundtrack is compressed in the game ROM using an unknown form of compression. Project Tempest v0.95 and WinHex were used to extract the files after the game was loaded into memory. The game uses custom General MIDI instrument patches, so a recording can't yet be made outside of the game. The current recording was made during actual game play, but it is rather low quality. A new recording should be made once a proper driver can be developed.

The custom SF2 for Wolfenstein 3D and Doom were ripped (got it from here, it's just has too big size to be uploaded), so the music should be re-recorded.
