Doom 64 is a reedition of Nintendo 64 FPS under the same title. The game was developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks (the original was the work of Midway Games).

Plot

The action of Doom 64 takes place after the events presented in the first two installments of the Doom serie. After victorious battles against demons on the surface of Mars and Earth, mankind decided to deal with their nests on the moons of the Red Planet, Phobos and Deimos. The moons were bombarded with powerful ordnance, but the resulting radiation made it impossible for people to observe the results of the project, and thus to notice that a mysterious being survived the offensive, bringing back to life every undead and hellspawn it finds. After the operation, a group of soldiers is sent to the place, whose task is to deal with the threat. However, the unit is slaughtered, and the only survivor is the main protagonist of the game. From now on, the mission, on whose success depends the fate of humanity, rests on his shoulders.

Mechanics

In Doom 64, the action was shown from first-person perspective. The game consists of thirty-two extensive levels reminiscent of labyrinths. In addition to obtaining the keys and activating the switches opening closed passages, during our travels we eliminate hosts of terrifying enemies. Although the arsenal we use to kill enemies is well known from earlier Doomgames, the appearance of its individual elements has undergone profound changes (for example, a mechanical saw has two blades rather than one). New is the weapon known as the Laser (or Unmaker), which shares ammunition with the iconic BFG 9000; as we progress, we acquire three ancient artifacts that enable us to upgrade it significantly.

Technical aspects

Compared to the original, the reedition of the game has not undergone any visual changes; the game has only been adapted to run in panoramic mode.
