Best calculator game to date! Graphics is excellent! 1 billion stars is my rating ( not a joke). Before playing this, i thought this was a youtube hoax, but no! It does what it claims and even better!

Altough it is better than any other 3D game I have seen (except for Maze3D), this game could be better.

First of all, the main screen is not in full screen mode, and there is no option to turn on full screen mode.

Graphics 5/10: The bad guys look very unrealistic and there is no full screen mode. Grayscale would have been nice.

Size 7/10: It would have been better if it had been packaged into an app.

Overall 6/10

This is what all 3D games should be like on the TI-83 Plus. “Wolfenstein3D” pushes assembly code and good graphics to their highest peaks.

Graphics: 10/10 (except for the fact that sometimes you end-up adjusting the screen's contrast when you "walk" forward or backward during the game)

Gameplay: 10/10 Very entertaining and accurate to the original “Wolfenstein3D” game for the PC.

Ease-Of-Operation: 10/10 I have not yet tried-out the level-editor, so I cannot comment on that either way. To date, this is by far the most impressive TI-83 Plus game I've seen!

This game is extremely fast and much better than similar incarnations on this site. “Wolfenstein” is a great game for long car trips. The only problem that I had was with the level editor. I couldn't figure out how to do anything. I deleted it about 2 weeks after I put it on. I give the game a 10/10, but the level editor is a 1/10.

This game was a very good remake of “Wolfenstein”. The graphics are great, and gameplay is quite fast.

However, I found that the level editor was too difficult to use, and the items were also too hard to see. The bad guys looked very unrealistic, as well.

I give this game a 7/10.

I love “Wolfenstein83!” This is one of the best games ever for the 83/84+. I own an 84+ SE, so memory is not an issue (9/10). As for graphics, this game rocks (10/10)! The only thing is that there needs to be a better level editor. It took me an hour just to find the thing to end the level. Still, it is a great level editor, one of the best (10/10)! I think that the contrast can become annoying, but it adds to how real the game looks. Whoever thought there would be graphics this good with good speed in a TI-83 Plus game?

Anybody who has been looking for the best 3D calculator game, this is it.

This is a faithful conversion of the original “Wolfenstein 3-D” for the computer. The levels were almost exactly the same. While the secret level from the computer version is not available in the calc version, it resembles the PC version in most other respects.

Graphics: The screen size is small and the movement is slow, but the wall and enemy textures are great. The contrast effect was pretty annoying but it can be turned off. 8/10.

Playability: “Wolfenstein83” will definitely keep you glued to your calc. However, it's not too fun when you have shoot the ”Schusstaffel” then times to kill him. The keys were a little hard to see against a black and white background, and adding treasure, pointkeeper, and high scores to the game would have been a nice addition. “Wolfenstein83” really sucks up memory but on a 83 SE, but it doesn’t matter too much because it’s a really good game.

Overall: 9/10.

“Wolfenstein83” is actually very fun to play, though I never figured out how to use the level editor.

Graphics: 10/10 much better than any raycaster I've ever seen
Gameplay: 8/10 Ot takes too many hits to kill a guy and there isn’t enough ammo lying around. Also, there is no option for when you have no ammo or anything, and I think that fist-fighting should be implemented.
Size: 6/10 Sorry here, but I can't keep this on my calc because it's a huge memory hog and I’m not into FPS games enough to want all that RAM/archive memory to be taken up. This is the only thing that truly disappoints me about “WolfenStein83”

Overall: 7.5/10. Great game, great graphics; keep up the good work.

Again, I think this game is A+. And for the curious, I discovered the Developer's cheat (in the history log). It's holding down the LOG button while hitting the UP key. It'll restock your health, restock your ammo, and give you all 3 guns.

I have a negative to add, Contrast mode is annoying. It makes you feel as if your calculator's batteries are getting sucked into oblivion. Thank god you can turn it off.

Again, I give it a 10/10

Ok first off, three words THIS GAME ROCKS! It rocks so hard that your clothing jumps off your body and starts doing the macarana, this is a bad thing so I suggest you strap your clothing securely to your body before playing this game. Okay now for the actual review, Wolfenstein is a shoot-em-up this one is 3D which is absolutely brilliant, so that's a positive on the graphics-o-meter also be sure to check out the contrast effect which actually darkens and brightens your screen when walking into areas of high and low darkness! That's a big plus on the graphics-o-meter, now for the negatives sometimes it's hard to see what you're doing and the dogs don't really look like anything and sometimes you can shoot a Nazi 50 times but he won't die, but what do you expect you're playing a 3D game on a CALCULATOR! (this rocks so hard that I don't know if you'll be able to stand it any longer) Controls are easy having a rock thrown at you minus the pain of the impact as all you have to do is be able to operate the arrow keys and the 2nd button and your good to go get amazed and rocked at the same time with this awesome game. Oh and did I mention this game rocks?

I will give this game the Simon seal of absolute rockiness a 10/10 ranking the honor of being my first ever review and when I get a wife and have kids my first born son it's so good!

In summary this game rocks
