Wizard of Wor Remix is another beautifully crafted remake by jph, featuring larger mazes, a handy fold space button which allows basic teleportation and a very capable A.I. written to mimic the actions of a secondary player in the game.

As a Worrior, your task is to hunt down monsters in a maze-like dungeon with only a unified field disruption rifle as your only weapon. Definitely an item of interest to fans of the original, though the current generation may not be so easily endeared by it's archaic roots.

Jph also created another completely different WoW remake that's pretty impressive. As far as I know, though, he's never released it.

That is the most finished ver. still on the site,. I have had hard drive crashes,. and lost a whole system w/ 3 years work on it to burglary,. so not sure if I still have the .gmd files,. however it was never 'finished' and I for some reason moved on,. I think i was finding the game play somehow less fun than that more traditional remake and just didn't have the time to spend on building a proper level editor as was needed,. well there you go.

Sorry to hear about the burglary. Although I prefer your excellent remix I really enjoyed the return version. Kinda funny, just last night when I was playing the remix version I thought how cool it would be to have a remake with beautiful shiny graphics in the style of the Lego Star Wars games and a little bit of Id software feeling to it. The return version seems to follow a similar concept, very cool monsterdesigns.
And yes, I'm thinking about donating...tuition fees are killing me right now ;-)
Thanks for responding and good luck.
P.S.: How about customizable controls...arrow keys for first player? :-)
