Wolfenstein 1-D is the most extreme demake yet

Wolfenstein has been the subject of its fair share of remakes, demakes and fanmade tributes, yet few rank as high on the 'wtf?' scale as this new pixel-high 1-D interpretation. The craziest part? It's actually kind of fun.

Created by Wonder-Tonic, Wolfenstein 1-D prides itself as being the “the game that changed everything, converted to a one-pixel line.”

Stepping into William “B.J.” Blazkowicz's pixel-high boots, storming pixel-high rooms and picking off pixel-high Nazis does have its charms, even if half of the fun comes from the action going on in your head. You can try it out here.

1-D gaming might not require special glasses or expensive TVs to enjoy, but it does require good eyesight and a hefty degree of imagination. Maybe the DLC will include a second layer?

    point has no dimensions. a line is a succesion of points, a plane is a succesion of lines and a cube is a succession of planes so 1D is the second case, no D is the first. God, i never thought id actually use Kandinsky's "point and line to plane" in casual conversation

    @EnragedTortoise: Technically, a pixel has neither, it is a point. What you see on your display is a reconstruction of those (discrete) points.

    It gets all trippy if you play and focus on it for too long :P

    I think I'll go kick myself in the BAWLS now. That would be MUCH more fun.

    technically it is one dimension because you're only moving on one axis =P

    Well technically, that's not one dimension, as a pixel still has heighth and width. Nerr herr.

    I tried it. It was alright. Not sure about paying 35 bucks for the sequels, though...

    It's amazing how it actually captures the gameplay of the original.
