Spear of Destiny

Although the Spear of Destiny set came out after Wolfenstein 3D, it actually takes place in time before it, and therefore it's really a prequel.

The Story
:

It's World War II and you are B.J. Blazkowicz, the Allies' most valuable agent. In the midst of the German Blitzkrieg, the Spear that pierced the side of Christ is taken from Versailles by the Nazis and secured in the impregnable Castle Wolfenstein. According to legend, no man can be defeated when he has the Spear. Hitler believes himself to be invincible with the power of the Spear as his brutal army sweeps across Europe. Your mission is to infiltrate the heavily guarded Nazi stronghold and recapture the Spear from an already unbalanced Hitler. The loss of his most coveted weapon could push him over the edge. It could also get you ripped to pieces.

Words from John Romero on Spears 10th Birthday - Sep 18,2002:

I still remember how fast we got this game together - it only took 2 months of making levels and new monsters immediately after shipping all 6 episodes of Wolfenstein 3D (and Wolfy's Hint Book, of course). Two months! And it went straight to retail and sold okay, although not having the magic words Wolfenstein 3D in HUGE letters did hurt sales a little. The box did say "A Wolfenstein 3D Adventure" on it, but it was in smaller type.

Believe it or not, the first time we all saw the cool box for Spear was when it was already shipped out to stores. We received a shipment of boxes along with all the retail chains and it was our first look at the design -- and we loved it! In fact, we really loved having our names printed on the sides of the box when you lifted the LucasArts-like cover.
