    Super Wolfenstein HD is fan-made indie game made for the PewDiePie Jam in 72 hours by the same team who made Broforce. Destroy any brick, take down Nazi's and dog with a realistic physics system. Shoot them in the leg, cut a hole through the wall and snipe them...

    Launching Super Wolfenstein HD

    Click Run

    Note: Click "debug" to see errors and bugs

    Conclusion:
    Super Wolfenstein HD runs really well on my GeForce 550 Ti with no frame lagging at all. When I played it on my GeForce 7600 Ti, I had to lower the resolution of my Virtual Desktop to 800x600 then I got a decent frame rate.
    There is a lot destructable surfaces and can dramatically lower frame rates, so Super Wolfenstein HD probably won't run well on laptops or older video cards.
