Doom

Video: Doom running on graphing calculator

It's pretty much what the title says: Doom running on a Texas Instruments Nspire graphing calculator. It's not the first example of geeks getting game code to run on these graphing calculators—people have been trying to cram Doom and Wolfenstein 3D into them for years—but this particular attempt looks insanely good.

You know what really holds up? Doom

I downloaded Doom on a whim off of Live, and I've got to say I'm surprised by just how good it still is. Great level design, interesting enemies, good weapon balance.

Doom 3 – Second Opinion

It's the exponential progression of these things that bothers me most. Ever since the original Doom, the majority of First Person Shooters (FPS) have followed an incredibly strict formula: The hero begins the game with a ridiculously underpowered weapon, and is besieged by an army of enemies that can be just barely killed by that first weapon (it's challenging enough that each enemy put down feels like something of an accomplishment).

Doom 3 – Review

An impressive achievement in audio and visual technology, Doom 3's visceral gameplay is a deliberate throwback to the original Doom from 1993.

Doom 3

Game Description: Doom 3 continues the incredible shooter action of the first two Doom games! The Mars Research Facility has been invaded by demons from Doom, leaving only chaos and horror in their wake. You're one of the only survivors - to stay alive you'll have to fight your way to Hell and back.
