Lab is a new freeware Wolfenstein 3D clone, playable in-browser. It plays a pretty decent homage to the lupine first person shooter, and Doom too, I suppose, but the square rooms seem more Wolf3d.exe than DooM.bat if you know what I mean. Lab is a pretty good callback full of guns to collect and probably-just-misunderstood mutants to blast. Sadly, no Dexters in sight though.


As a slight twist to the proceedings, you don’t need to press space to open doors, as here in this dizzying future age doors now open automatically when you get close. Secret doors are the more moody sort and apparently open in a less civil manner, which that is to say, by shooting them. This sadly means no running through the level continuously pressing the space bar while searching for secret doors making that continuous grunting sound.

In case you couldn’t tell by the giant BIGDINO in the corner, it’s also sponsored by a large prehistroic reptile.

About J.C

I grew up in the dark dingy arcades of the 1980s, blasting heads with Robocop 2, but grew up in an era that spanned the introduction of the x86 home computer, through to the 16-bit revolution, into the polygon age and beyond. I write about food, travel and of course, New Retro Games. I started and contribute to I am also a freelance business researcher, writer, and editor having published academic and corporate articles on innovation and intellectual property.
