Spear of Destiny was the commercial sequel to the shareware classic Wolfenstein-3D. In this game you reprise your role of a lone soldier fighting the Nazi's behind enemy lines during World War II.
The game is played from a first person perspective. You have a single mission, to recover the mystical spear, and to do so you have to get through 20 levels of the heavily defended Nazi stronghold.
Just as in the original Wolfenstein, you see what your character sees as you move down hallways, open doors, etc. The foes you face range from guard dogs and measly pistol packing Nazis to more fearsome opponents like three-armed mutants and buffed-out chaingun toting bosses. All enemies and objects are displayed using two-dimensional graphics.
Your arsenal may include a knife, pistol, machine gun and rapid-fire chain gun. In addition to requiring quick reactions, you are also usually required do some exploring to find one or two keys to advance to the next level. To help you along the way, the levels are littered with power-ups to increase your health and ammo. User created levels and level editors are available to allow you to expand the adventure. ~ Joseph Scoleri III, All Game Guide
