       Wolf4SDL  is an open-source port of id Software's classic first-person shooter Wolfenstein
       3D  to  the  cross-plattform   multimedia   library   Simple   DirectMedia   Layer   (SDL)
       (  It  is meant to keep the original feel while taking advantage of
       some improvements.

       The wolf4sdl-wl6, wolf4sdl-wl6a,  wolf4sdl-wl1,  wolf4sdl-sod  and  wolf4sdl-sdm  binaries
       start  the  Wolf3d  Full  v1.4  GT/ID/Activision, Wolf3d Full v1.4 Apogee (with ReadThis),
       Wolf3d Shareware v1.4, Spear of Destiny Full and Mission Disks and Spear of  Destiny  Demo
       games, respectively. The wolf4sdl binary is a symbolic link to one of these and is handled
       via Debian's update-alternatives mechanism.
