Your objective is to try and get the Nazi war plans for Operation Rheingold and get out of the castle (the Nazi outpost) with them. The quest is beset with obstacles and pitfalls. You must get past guards and SS stormtroopers in order to get to the trunks containing the supplies vital to the success of your mission. Being quick on the trigger with your Maurer M-98 pistol is a necessity when the adversaries attempt to capture or kill you, or if you need to pass the enemy to get at the trunks, or if you simply need to take the supplies to fill your own needs. In order to move fast, you are limited to supplies of ten bullets, three grenades, a Nazi uniform for camuflage, and the war plans.
You win by escaping from the castle with the war plans. The player is then awarded a promotion from the Allied High Command. If the escapee is shot, blown up or caught, the player will continue in subsequent games in the same castle. At the beginning of each game, however, the player is given the option of generating a new castle. Play may be terminated at any time, simply by depressing the ESC key and the game will be saved on the diskette for the player to continue later.
Castle Wolfenstein is an outstanding action/adventure game. Fans of this one should check out Beyond Castle Wolfenstein as well.
