Pathways into Darkness, on the other hand, threw in a lot of neat mechanics to make the gameplay worthwhile. Sadly, I heard that more was going to be done with wolf3d to give it elements that the old apple II wolfenstein had, such as stealing nazi uniforms for stealth, but carmack cut it all out for simplicity.

EDIT: Whoa, I just looked on Half.com. Those fuckers sell cheap. I reckon that I'll be ordering them soon.
