|(games)||DOOM - A simulated 3D moster-hunting action game for IBM PCs, created and published by id Software. The original
press release was dated January 1993. A cut-down shareware
version v1.0 was released on 10 December 1993 and again with
some bug-fixes, as v1.4 in June 1994.|
DOOM is similar to Wolfenstein 3d (id Software, Apogee) but has better texture mapping; walls can be at any angle, of any thickness and have windows; lighting can fade into the distance or come from point sources; floors and ceilings can be of any height; many surfaces are animated; up to four players can play over a network or two by serial link; it has a high frame rate (comparable to TV on a 486/33); DOOM isn't just a collection of connected closed rooms like Wolfenstein but sounds can travel anywhere and alert monsters of your approach.
The shareware version is available from these sites: Cactus, Manitoba, UK, South Africa, UWP ftp, UWP http, Finland, Washington.
