  • About The Game:

  • Synopsis: Doom is a pretty famous game, that lacked an Amiga version for many years. id software declined porting it publicly many years ago, stating that you would need a 68040 CPU and a video card just to run it at a playable speed. This was at a time when that was considered pretty much the top end of Amiga market, which was too small a market for them. This was probably for the best in the long run. If they had ported it it they probably would have just compiled the code in a weekend, and then we would have stuck with a half-rate Doom, done as an after thought. Instead in December of 1997 id released the source code for the engine used in Doom and Doom II. The result was a number of ports from various talented programmers, who competed with each other over adding new features, faster gameplay, and compatability with various hardware set-ups. Right now I use an Amiga Doom engine called DoomAttack by Georg Steger. By merely installing his executable, support files, prefs program and a rather large datafile from the MS-DOS version of Doom, I get a very professional Doom on my Amiga 1200.
