Wolfenstein 3D disappears from Swiss and Austrian App Stores

id Software blames Nazi symbols for disappearance

id Software has reported that Wolfenstein 3D Classic is no longer available in both the Swiss and Austrian versions of the iOS App Store.

John Carmack, technical director of id Software, tweeted the news from his personal account.

"The iOS App Stores in Switzerland and Austria just lost Wolfenstein Classic due to the offensive swastikas. :-("

In 1994 the PC version of Wolfenstein 3D was pulled from sale in Germany for the inclusion of the Nazi symbol. For the Super NES version all swastikas were removed.
