Not every castle make up a defensive structure to shelter during battle period or a place enthroned by kings and queens but some encircle the entire story in it, outside which remains is just a plot to describe.

Castle Wolfenstein is one such fictional world that encircles an adventure but in the form of a game. Castle Wolfenstein is a popular single player video game which involves stealth based action-adventure developed by Muse Software. The game was first released in 1981. The game was originally developed for the Apple II platform but was later made available to Atari 8-bit family, MS-DOS and Commodore 64. Designer Silas Warner, the creator of Castle Wolfenstein is also known for designing the sound engine and the game engine.

The game is set in the World War II frame. The objective of the game is to travel across the castle to reveal the secret war strategies and ultimately step out alive. The game was a phenomenal success and it paved the way for the development of other games namely Wolfenstein 3D, Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood which were based on the settings of the original game.

The real life castle namely Castle Wewelsburg owned by Heinrich Himmler, located in the Paderborn district of Germany is known to be the inspiration for the Castle Wolfenstein. Originally it was formed as a centre for Nazi’s activities.
