       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.
