I also wondered about this but then came to the conclusion that this is just an element of the original game that has to be accepted as it is. Falling down the screen doesn't make much sense in the...

Is that new character towards the end of the video someone from the Blue Oyster Bar? *g*

No, seriously, I love the new scenes, they remind me a lot of Last Ninja 2.

Wolfenstein doesn't come close to the Ultima Underworld engine and graphical accuracy of Ultima Underworld is just fine. But I believe the base configuration for both is a CPU generation apart. I...
