    Messing about with the game today, It looks like I found some kind of developer console when trying some gestures. its a bit obscure to bring up and i don't know what to type into it yet or what it can do, but it exists.

    Don't know if anyone else has found this, but instructions follow:

    Open the game, start a level, then do the following gesture, rap your fingers in sort of a mexican wave motion once (tap with your pointing finger, then index finger and so on) then tap with all four fingers once.
    I normally do it in the top half of the screen, but it will probably work on it all.

    Known commands that respond:
    map: gamemap <map>, some kind of way to change map, havent worked it out yet
    god: God mode ON, toggles God mode on and off
    give all: Gives you all weapons, ammo and keys
    music <number>: Some kind of variable to change the music, havent figured it out
    developer: some other kind of variable, most likely to start and stop logging or something.

    Screenshot of the console:

    EDIT: it doesnt appear to respond to anything, but it might be doing things invisibly.
    EDIT: it also (after some testing) doesnt need the "wave" sort of gesture, just a 4 finger tap.

    Awesome! Give All also works. It doesn't say anything in the console like God does, but when you return you have all of the guns, ammo and keys.

    Yeah, don't listen to folks like that, I'd finished the game on my iPhone a while back, craving exploratory tools like "god mode" and "give all", I assumed they were there, but hadn't really experimented to get them. Good post.

    I'm on map E6M10, and encountered a PacMan "ghost monster" in the catacombs, and it was pissing me off that I couldn't figure out how to survive it once it emerged. I'd legitimately killed everything on the level on "Death Incarnate" mode, and was lazily exploring the secret doors of a zombie den when I ran into this abomination.

    Thanks for sharing also.

    The idea of console mode on a bloody phone game just about does my head in :) I'd say the iPhone is more powerful than half the desktop computers I've owned in my life.

    I ran into the Pacman monster while playing Wolfenstein years ago, soon after it first came out. Nice to know it made it into the iPhone version.

    Reading a FAQ / cheats / secrets list for Wolfenstein should give you more codes for the iPhone console, and some info about Pac-Monster.

    Best wishes

    The only problem is that things change between ports.

    I downloaded the iPhone source and found all the commands... Chief amongst them being "listCmds" (which I'd guessed at previously but didn't realize was case-sensitive). Also the maps were named oddly, so I didn't realize that "map w09" takes you to map e1m9 (secret), and typing "map w59" takes you to map e6m9.

    Using this, I found the secret Pac-man level with ALL the ghost monsters and the oddly familiar map design. The command "notarget" was especially fun to play with. I found myself entering rooms chock full of soldiers and saying, "I suppose you gentlemen are wondering why I called you here." and then lighting them up with chaingun justice.

    Yes, I know... It's an illness.

    Big Red Pac Thing

    Anyone figure out how to kill the red sucker yet??? No luck here.
    Can't find a good FAQ/cheat/secret sheet either. Found a site that mentioned the few cmd's listed in this thread but nothing else. Googled till I cried. Also, how do you get the list to not scroll passed so you can see the whole list of cmd's?

    I think its safe to say its "unkillable". It's simply there to give you a hard time, and chase you away. It's slow, dumb, and has no projectile weapons. It's basically an environmental hazard. If it pins you up against the wall, even in "god-mode" its effectively a stalemate and you need to change levels from the console, or suffer unending flashes of red. Oh... my kingdom for "noclip" support.
