Q:How have you never brought up that the Playstation runs Doom? Playstation Doom is a great port!
I definitely need to do a write-up of Doom 64 and PSX Doom, it just requires a little more effort than usual since they’re such popular ports with various changes (especially Doom 64!)
The Commodore VIC-20? It can’t run Doom, but it likes to pretend.
This surprisingly ambitious little clone by “Kweepa” has eight levels, four enemies, five weapons, a whopping TWENTY sound effects, and a whole lotta eye strain. You’ll need a 35kb RAM expansion (THIRTY FIVE WHOLE KILOBYTES? Sweet jesus!) to run this on the actual hardware.
Thanks to andrewhussein for submitting this ages ago!
The Nokia N-Gage? Yeah, it runs Doom.
mgmnofnerda brings word from the west that a source port called C2Doom brings Doom to a variety of older Nokia devices, typically Symbians, but allegedly it also works with our beloved sidetalker.
Both N-Gage models work with C2Doom and you need an MMC card to upload it to the phone. It can run the Doom 1/2 wads as well as some mods. Audio and visuals take a big hit and trying to strafe with a keypad is definitely not the ideal way to play. But if you want to play Doom on your taco phone, you can now!
Thanks again to mgmnofnerda for submitting this! No thanks to Tumblr’s system for notifying people when you’re mentioning them for being a bit crap!
At the beginning of 1996, two 3DO games broke fans’ hearts: Doom and Mortal Kombat 3. MK3 was shown working, featured on magazine covers and by all accounts was ready for release, but it never materialized. Doom was another story. Randy Scott of Art Data Interactive promised for two years a game that “[had] simply no comparison between the PC and 3DO versions…” he was right, just not in a good way. ADI had wrestled to put Doom onto the 3DO. Plagued with staff problems and over-ambitious ideas, “Burger” Bill Heineman was eventually contracted to do a basic port of the PC version in just ten weeks to meet a Christmas deadline. Through no fault of 3DO, or Burger Bill’s, it was widely considered the worst conversion of the game.

The Sega Genesis? Yeah, it runs Wolfenstein 3D.
This is a fan port, rewritten in ASM using the Wolf3D source code as a base. You can learn more and download the current build here.
(I’m not dead, btw. More again soon.)
20 years ago today, the original “Knee Deep in the Dead” shareware release of Doom was uploaded to the University of Wisconsin FTP server, which (so the story goes) crashed shortly afterwards. Things have never quite been the same ever since.
Q:Can someone port Doom to my eyelids so I can play while I'm sleeping?
Our top geneticists are on standby and waiting for your call.
Q:has anyone ported doom to any smart tvs or digiboxes or anything like that yet?

DWANGO, the old Doom multiplayer matchmaking service that spawned the impressively lame DWANGO5 MAP01, started a Japanese spin-off company in 1997 that still exists today, operating various companies like Japanese Youtube-equivalent NicoNicoDouga and Dangan-fecking-Rompa developer Spike Chunsoft.
How can one company be responsible for so much evil?
