Doom on the 7Mhz, 16-colour, 1Mb Amiga 500 might sound unrealistic but this is one of a handful of games that managed it and the first full Doom-style game for the Amiga. The major compromises in getting the game onto the A500 are the graphics, which lack texture-mapping, and the trick-3D used where the characters don’t rotate smoothly in 360 degrees, but jerk through a small range of viewpoints. Only half the screen is used for the actual motion with the rest reserved for RPG-style artwork – which is obviously superfluous because the two-player game doesn’t have it. It’s a throwback to the first Lotus game of all things.
